Things Are Looking Up

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 5, 2015 in Personal |

Another brief pause, but only because I have so much to do at the moment: college is not as easy as some believe! I have my first analogue photos back from the developer – I’m not quite so experienced to develop my own yet – and with some very good results. I’ll be posting a […]

Sharing: In Sickness And In Health

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 15, 2014 in Personal |

I just love the generosity of other people, especially when they have something to share that you don’t really want, but have no way of refusing. By this I don’t mean that third toaster at a wedding, or the reindeer pullover Aunt Maud knitted for your twentieth birthday which fits one arm but not the […]

Returning To Normal Days

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 9, 2014 in Personal |

Many students in Germany have already returned to school, some have the pleasure of waiting until Thursday and for those just starting out on their school career, the first school day is Saturday. Each individual State in Germany sets its own term times, which can be weeks apart from one another and causes some consternation […]

Quietly Watching…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 10, 2013 in Personal |

I’m going to be a little bit quiet for the next few days, nothing to worry about, I’ll still be here and I will probably post each day as usual, but small things – like this! Hopefully I will have everything that I need to do out of the way by the weekend, Monday at […]

Under Four Eyes

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 27, 2013 in Personal |

The Germans have a special way of expressing a quiet talk between two people, one which is usually not pleasant or has a great deal that could be termed private, uncomfortable, future changing. Where we would say either let’s have a quiet talk together, or let’s step into my office their face-to-face counts the number […]

Polishing Off

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 30, 2013 in Personal |

Just a quick note this evening, nothing special, hardly anything to see here, move right along. I’m polishing off the paper I have to give up sometime next week or so. Normally I would just sit down and write and then, perhaps, do a little bit of editing along the way. However, in Germany there […]

Well, That’s It Then…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 4, 2012 in Personal |

Today is the last day of Fall Break and tomorrow I am allowed to get up super early again and ride the bus into Bremen, sit in a lecture hall for a few hours and learn. Well, I sincerely hope that there will be a little bit of learning in there, I mean, that’s the […]

Education, Who Needs It?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 26, 2012 in News & Opinion |

When I think back to my High School days, perhaps even back to Middle School and earlier, I have a few fond memories. I also have memories of many hours slaving over books, preparing for and taking tests and countless hours staring at whatever a teacher had written up for all to see and wondering […]

Distracted?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2012 in Personal |

No, not in the slightest. If anything I am very concentrated at the moment, as we come into the last few days of the first semester. I know plenty of people here who have suddenly found the need to cram, to pack as much information into their heads as they can, but that isn’t me […]

As Expected.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 4, 2011 in Personal |

First off I have to say, it comes as no surprise whatsoever. Second, it is not a bad thing. Third, I’m enjoying it but I can also tell, despite the pleasure, that it’s going to be a tough few years here. If I thought bettering my knowledge of German for the language exams was tough, […]
