Nothing new

Hey guys,

It is a wonder that I haven’t died of boredom yet. I am sooooooo bored. I do not know what to do. I cannot search for a job because I do not know when (and if) I have to leave for the US. Oh, by the way, I have a new suggestion from a Swiss family from Boston with whom I have skyped yesterday. It was awkward and I doubt that they will pick me as their new AuPair. I do not believe that my AuPair year will happen so I am searching for an idea what subject I could study but it either sounds boring or has no future potential. That is so frustrating!

Moreover, I am really down, nothing makes fun anymore (not even reading) and I wish I could sleep the whole day. I thought being finish with school feels better. I wish I could be back at school! (I have never imagined saying this, oh god, it is worse than I thought).

I hope you feel better and have more fun.

Me, again

And hi there, a third time.
I just wanted to inform you my cat is back.
I am still bored although I just found out that the song “Nehmt Abschied Brüder”, which I learned at school, is the English song “Old lang syne”, which is a New Year’s Eve song. Why I write about it? Lea Michele sang the song at the end of New Year’s Eve and I was sure that I know the melody and even remembered the lines: “Die Zukunft liegt in Finsternis und macht das Herz uns schwer” and I googled it and bam there it was. Bam. Okay, I do not know what else I can write. By the way, we do not have firework this year. I hate New Year’s Eve, my sis is not there, my mum wants to go to bed after midnight asap and my dad says he only does it for us but I think he just do not want to be the only one who watches it… Yup. So again, Happy New Year, especially for Greece, Egypt and all other countries in this time zone.
We are next guys. I think I am going to my parents now and I am hungry, who wants to start in a new year hungry? Oh I hear now Hong Kong sang Old lang syne when they welcomed 2017.
CU next year!

Hello, it’s me…

Hi, it’s me, again. I know you are probably thinking: What does she want, she wasn’t able to write for a year and now twice a day?
Yeah, you are right. It is just very, very boring and I feel very lonely so I thought why not write again?
Currently I watch New Year’s Eve and I feel (like every year) lonely. My sister left for the party, my dad and I had a fight at dinner, like every year. We always fight on New Year’s Eve and then on midnight everyone pretends that everything is alright and how much one loves each other and especially my dad tells us every year we should stay how we are. That is so insincere. I hate it.
Moreover I am worried that my cat does not come back before midnight, she has done it before on her first New Year’s Eve because she was so scared. Usually we do not let her go outside but she does not want to use the cat toilet, she only does her business outside and we can’t stand her wandering around and crying terribly. I thought she has almost 3 hours left to come back and it is very cold so she comes back after an hour but she is still not here. I hope she comes back in time.
The movie is almost over and I do not have the slightest idea what to do afterwards. It is going to be very boring. I do not want to celebrate with my parents especially not with my dad. I know, I know that’s wrong but it is like this every year and he is never NEVER able to apologize. You are probably saying: Becca, the wiser head gives in. I know that you are right but it is always the same and I have had enough. Well, it is likely that I will give in a few minutes before midnight so I am just now very furious.
I AM SO BORED. Even if my dad and I would not have had that fight I would not like be with him right now because he and my mum are watching an odd music show about old songs (and with old I mean they are so old even my mum does not know a lot of them!)

I hope you have a nice day/night/evening and please ignore me I am just furious and very bored.
Guten Rutsch and happy new year!

New Year’s Eve

Good morning! I hope you all had wonderful christmas! I really do not like New Year’s Eve! It is always the same. I do not know what to do the whole day. I try to recall the year and write down my wishes, high- and lowlights. Then I watch a movie I saw this year the first time and liked it the most. After that my mum, grandma and I go to church. It is pretty cool, the best sermon of the year is on New Year’s Eve. In former times I made New Year Cards for my parents, my sister and my grandmother. Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? I do not have any. My resolution was every year to start putting my hands up in school but I never have so I do not make it. Well once I wanted to lose weight and it worked but like I told you already I gained it again. After church we start preparing dinner ( it was Raclette last year – very popular in Germany on New Year’s Eve as well as this year’s dinner Fondue. My mum eats cheese Fondue and the rest of us normal Fondue that means hot pot. We have beef, pork and chicken. I love chicken!   I do not know what my sister’s gonna eat, I mean she does not eat cheese and is a Vegetarian since sunday.) This year’s gonna be different than always because my mum works now and has to work tomorrow morning so she has to get up at 4am. Usually we eat dinner, play games like Monopoly, Mensch ärger dich nicht (Ludo), eat chips and my grandma comes over half an hour before midnight, then we do lead pouring, for which one needs a lot of fantasy which I do not have, my dad fires the fireworks and then we watch a movie, I do not know why but often it is From Paris with Love with John Travolta or Mission Impossible IV, I probably remember it better than the other ones because I write it down but this year I do not know how it is (I tell you later). I know that my mum goes to bed before midnight probably ’round 11pm. She is sure that the fireworks won’t wake her up but I bet they will.
The reason why I hate New Year’s Eve is that my parents say at midnight, you are great, stay the way you are but on the other 364/365 days in the year they critize me and everyone to change. I hate it! Moreover it is really sad that another year is over. Furthermore Frau Schröder is always really scared, last year she wanted to go outside at 4pm and I thought she would be back before 12am, before the fireworks start, but she did not come home although I called her. She was really scared of the fireworks and came back not until January 2. And the last point is that everyone has fun on parties but I have to stay at home. This year’s New Year’s Eve is gonna be really sad because after dinner I am gonna watch either High School Musical 1 + 2 – Karaoke Version with my sister or New Year’s Eve (both air on TV). What I watch depends on when we finish dinner, when we finish it before 8.15pm I am gonna watch New Year’s Eve else I watch HSM because I know the movies already ( almost by heart ).
Since 4 hours I wanted to watch the fireworks in New York but first I had no own computer and last year I was too tired to get up, I have to get up at 6 am for it. This year I am gonna try it again.
Well let’s see how it will be!

The first ones already celebrated New Year’s Eve and in less than 30 minutes Australia will welcome 2016 aswell!

Back 2

I am back from dinner. It was delicious although it was a bit too spicy, my mum likes it! You never guess what my sister just heard really loud: Justin Bieber’s Baby! Yuck! I posted a long while ago that i want to publish my fav recipes. Here’s the first one. We call it “Wok”.

You need:
400 gram meat which you like
2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp Sambal Oelek
2 tbsp curry paste
as much vegetables (carottes, pepper, bamboo, sprouts, broccoli, …)
1 can coconut milk

1. Add the meat after the sesam oil is hot.
2. Add the vegetables and cook both
3. Now add a bit of the soy sauce and 1 tbsp of the curry paste.
4. After that add the coconut milk and the curry paste, Sambal Oelek.
5. Spice it with sambal and Curry paste as you like.
You can eat it with rice. Enjoy your meal!

Back

Bonjour!
It has been a long time since I wrote the last time! Actually I wanted to take my computer with me to France but my dad said no. I am happy to be back, I did not really enjoy my stay in France. Maybe because of my parents? I wondered if people my age still go with their family on vacation the whole time. France was really nice, I really like Baguette. ❤ We went to Grasse, Antibes, Nice, Eze, Vence, the Cave of Baume Obscure, the Grand Canyon of Europe (I did not know that this even exists) and to my birthday wish Monaco! And yes my birthday was when we were in France. I got a new purple camera and a 5€ from my sister. We stayed in a little house in the Alpes 20 km away from the sea but it took us 1 1/2 hours to get there because to get to sea level one had to drive 1 km down and this in just 20km! We often went to the beach and I really love the sea!!! One thing I also enjoyed in France was that some TV chanels are English! For example I was able to watch one of my favorite TV series in English: Criminal Minds! I do not know why but I always enjoy driving to our vacation destination, too. My sister and I watch a movie, we have a little car TV, play with our cell phone, Nintendo DS, iPad or read. I often just watch the landscape passing by especially in Switzerland. I like the mountains so much! I think the Switzerland is so beautiful!
I post pictures later!
Today was day 3 after summer break! My timetable is horrible! Monday, Tuesday, Friday I have school until 5 pm, Wednesday until 3.15pm and thursday until 1pm. And I still need 1 hour until I am at home. But the last two years of school started so everything I do is now important for my Abitur. My major subjects are German and English. In German we are reading 3 books this half year. The first one we have to finish until next monday. It is by Schiller and called Die Jungfrau von Orleans (The Maid of Orleans) based on Jeanne D’Arc. In English we are reading How to kill a mockingbird, next semenster instead of Othello like the years before us Romeo and Julliet and then Mother to Mother.
Today one of my favorite TV-shows airs: The Taste. I really like to bake and cook! My favorite cook is Alexander Herrmann but Frank Rosin and Tim Mälzer are cool too. Unfortunately Lea Linster is not in the jury anymore.

I have to go, my mum called. The dinner is ready. Today it is Chilli con Carne!

Jealous

I JEALOUS AF!!!!  My cousin, the 11 years old, her parents and their friends fly to Las Vegas, USA tommorrow. They will stay there for 3 weeks. They will visit Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon, Death Valley and Los Angeles and of course a lot more like a youth hostel in a light house and the Disney Attraction Park. My dream since I was ten was visiting the US and excatly this places. And they fly. I love flying – I do not know why because I am really afraid of heights – and I never flew so long. They are flying as long as we need to drive to France, really frustating. I know, using the plane is bad for the environment but I do not fly often – six times now. Three years ago four times: 2 times with my aunt from Munich to Frankfurt so that I have been in a plane before I went a few weeks later on the England-Exchange and the last two times in March bc of my internship. Another point because I am jealous is that she can speak English there. I love speaking English more than spesking German although I am better in German. I do not even speak French! And she does not want to go there, she would rather visit Namibia or Bali. But she is really cute and wants to send a lot of postcards and buy us souvenirs. Ok lets see how her vacation turns out to be. There especially in the area near LA are bad forest fires and in the last months one hears a lot about the shot people some even by the police, very scary. (I am still jealous, maybe I will have later enough money to go there. The flight is really expensive 1500 €.)
