Birthdays

Hey,

I really do not like August. Okay, it’s summer and I like the warm and sunny weather where one can sit outside in the sun drinking a cold drink and reading a great book (In my opinion one cannot read every book at every weather, I believe the weather has to match the atmosphere of the book, weird I know. A popular example is Twilight, I prefer to read it while it’s bad weather.) Okay, I got distracted. What I wanted to tell you is that I really hate August because it’s my birthday month. I despise my birthday. It’s my birthday this week and I can’t wait for it to be over. There are barely any things I abhor more than having birthday. The thing is it is kinda New Years Eve (the ones of you who follow me for a longer time now know how much I dislike it). Everyone says nice things and treats you especially kindly just because it’s your birthday. You have to be lovely too because it is your birthday you are supposed to be happy and charming to your guests, you are not allowed to be mad. Moreover, you are the center of attention, you have to decide which food for dinner and what movie to watch although the other 364 (365) days no one cares about your opinion. The presents do not make it better. You are exspected to like them and even if I like them they do not compensate the stress. I prefer not having birthday and that’s probably the reason I haven’t thrown a party the past years. My plan for tomorrow is to go for a run in the morning and spend the rest of the day by reading in the sun  (it is said to be sunny and warm) preferably “Voyager” by Diana Gabaldon. It will be a very calm day and I exspect no surprises, I get 19, that is nothing special, it is just frustrating because I will get 20 next year and I have always considered 20 as old. *Sigh*

I am on the road now because I want to sign the contract for working as a hostess finally so I have to bake the cake for tomorrow in the evening. I know it is a bit depressing when the birthday girl has to bake her cake herself. This will be the second cake I baked this week, I guess I bake a lot when I am bored. It is going to be an Amarula cheesecake after I already made an Amarula chocolate chip cake (Now that the Amarula bottle is open I have to get it empty in a couple of days and lacking of friends to drink it with – drinking it alone is so sad and full of calories – I have to use it for baking.

Oh and for the German football fans: This Sunday there is a day almost totally dedicated to American Football on ProSiebenMaxx where they even show one preseason game (I would have almost missed it so I want to draw you attention to it!)

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!

Soccer

So yesterday I watched the Champions League Final. Unfortunately there was no German team in the final which took place in the GERMAN capital Berlin. At first I didn’t care who win but then I rooted for Barca because they have the German goalkeeper Andre Marc ter Stegen. I thought that Barca wins after the first half but then Juve shot a goal too and I was like “Oh it gets excited, maybe we see penalty shootout (I really like penalty shootouts! :)) I am so happy that Twitter was invented, without it it would have been so boring. The bad thing is that I do not get much of the game or TV show when I am on Twitter. And if I am on Twitter, then I am badly active and tweet a lot. After the final the coverage about the FIFA Women’s World Cup started with one of my favorite German football player (who is unfortunately injured) Kim Kulig.https://i1.wp.com/www.hsv.de/fileadmin/redaktion/Teams/HSV_frauen/Bildermix_2009_10/KimKulig.jpg

Then the game Canada versus China PR started. I saw the first half and it was a bit boring and I was tired. I mean the game began at midnight and I got up at 7am that day. Unfortunately I fell asleep when the second half started. My parents turned the TV off and got me a pillow. I woke up at 4:50am and turned the TV on right away. So I saw the last ten minutes and missed this goal aswell as I missed the Canadian one by C. Sinclair (by a penalty!!!). After that I went to bed asap because I have to stay up late today too because of the German game against Cote D’Ivoire. But first I watched the match Norway – Thailand (4:0). Sadly Thailand lost effectively. I had not much time so I ate dinner (tuna salad) while watching the game which was NOT broadcasted in TV. What check! But I am really looking forward to the first game of the German team. I hope most of you watch it, too!!! Have a nice day/evening! Becca

Results of the test

While I was scrolling  and skimming through my old posts I noticed that I have not posted the results of the test with the intention to find out which job fits for me.

1. Interpreter 89.92%
2. Linguist 89.26%
3.Translator 88.73%4. Multilingual secretary 85.17%
5. Germanistin 85.57%
6. Cook 70.3%
7. Dietitian 67.87%

Except 6. & 7. they are all about language. That’s great because I really want to do something about language later!

So now my performance specification:
I have a little bit more general knowledge than the average of the other participants.
I can concentrate me better than the average.
My math knowledge is a little bit outstanding (I don’t know how I managed to get this result. I am really really REALLY bad at math.)My spelling is a little bit better than the spelling of the others. (This sentence sounds wrong).
The visual thinking of mine is a little bit better than the average’s ones.

If this results would all be correct I really would be outstanding. I cannot understand why I am so bad at school! 😉

Sunday evenings

Good evening, or for all my readers (Yeah I checked it out, all my readers are from the US – but that’s great, I really want to visit the US some day, I was close to visit Chicago this year but unfortunately the flight was too expensive :`-( ) good (after)noon!!!
Like I said yesterday I was really lazy yesterday so I had to do everything today. Ok but first I had a fight with my father today morning. My sister is at a class trip ’til next friday and my mother was working so I was alone with my father. We cleaned up the dishing machine and I wanted to put the glasses in the cupboard. One was already in and I wanted to put the other into it – like always, to save space – but it was not completly in the cupboard so it fell out when I wanted to put the other onto it. I wanted to catch at least one but I forgot that I had still one glass in my hand left so one of the falling glasses fell on the glass in my hand and both broke into pieces and the third one fell on the ground and – exactly – broke into pieces, so I destroyed three glasses at once! My father was really upset and wanted me to go away, that is why I went into the woods. Yeah, I know the woods are often the location where horror movies take place, by the way I do not like horror movies, once I tried to watch Halloween at Halloween alone (I think it was 2013) I stopped after the first 5 minutes. I do not know why anymore but I think it was because I was scared that I could not sleep anymore after I finished the movie.The last two years, especially this year – I know this year only has 2 months – I watched a lot of horror movies not because I really want to more because many of my age say they like horror movies and I do not want to be an outsider so I watch it. And to be honest some are not scary but funny). So in the woods first I was not scared but then it sounds one animal kills another and I paniced and ran out of the woods and bak home. This was after one and a half hour. I wanted to go back anyway because it started to get cold. Back home I did not was in the mood to make homework so I backed a cake (chocolate and nuts). It took me 2 hours and then I had to start with my homework. I began with PE. Although it is a group work I made everything. Even though we split it up I do not think my group members – 2 boys who think they are the kings but nobody likes them – will not have done anything and we have to submit it tomorrow and I do not want to get bad grades so I made everything. Ok it only took 4 hours. Then I printed out 5 pages about the Goeze-disput. Now I only have to do the general homework for mathematics and German OMG and history! I totally forgot. Whereever! I want to watch the German crime series ‘Tatort’ now so buy guys.

Oh and my mother pinched the head of Frau Schröder in the terrace door. I have to look after her now. Hopefully she is not hurt!

CU and a nice day and night! Becca

Sorry!

Hi Guys,

I am so sorry that it is almost a month ago, that I wrote the last time. I thought – even because I already started this blog – I would write more often. When I start something like a Twitter Account I am really excited and almost addicted to it for at least a week and then I am not in the mood to continue it anymore more often than not. I hope this will be different with this blog! I never thought that it would be so hard to handle school and free time. I rarely have free time! Since I transferred to a new school last summer I nearly do stuff for school. I have to do a presentation in PE about Newton and the Law of Inertia and in German I have to do a presentation about Lessing and his Goeze-Disput, also known as fragments dispute. AHHHHHHHHHH! I am so tired of everything (I am also very sleepy, also I was able to sleep ’til 8am yesterday because the first 2 lessons Latin dropped out. (Luckily) The train had a delay about 20 minutes so I missed my following train and went home because it would not have been worth to take the next train, which had been driven an hour later because I only had one lesson ( a lesson lasts 45 minutes) and when I would have arrived at school the lesson would have been over. Fridays I have only 4 lessons every two weeks. Yesterday the chemistry lesson dropped out, too. I did not think I missed much. Unfortunately I had vocational aptitude test in Wiesbaden. I do not have the slightest idea what I should/could do after school. I always wanted to be a pediatrician but a) I am too dumb and b) I do not like working with children – I made an internship in a kindergarten, it was horrible – and c) I participated in a first aid training, I was not bad but it was no fun and I think it is very disgusting sometimes. I appreciate people who like working as a doctor and it is necessary but it is no option for me. So I went there, the girls from my class, who took part in the test, too, were already there. The test lasted 4 hours. I thought there would be only questions about me and my personality but there questions about maths, PE, German, general knowledge and me and where I could imagine to work later. OMG, it was so stressful. The test was designed that we were not able to answer all questions so they were also able to see how we can handle stress. There were tasks like ‘Find the number which does not belong in the line : 8 … 98 … 16 … 49 … 32 …29 … 64 ( ok this is an easy one). We get the results in 2 – 4 weeks. Such a long time and then I find out I should work as a cleaning lady. The test costed 20 €! Ok no complaining ’til I have it. What did you do this weekend or are you going to do? I hope this is reading someone (probably not even if I had not a break which lasted approx. 4 weeks my life is not interesting) if not this is really crazy like communing with myself. I think I get insane. I do not know why but the word insane reminds me of TVD. I love(d) TVD! I mean ’til Season 4 it was good but Season 5 was really crazy I mean the most of the plot does not even make sense! Ok to be honest I only watched half of it and Season 6 fucks me of! SPOILER ALERT I mean Steroline should be friends not lovers and ok, it is cool that Alaric and so on is back but that is so unnecessary. The producers ran out of ideas. And Elena is as annoying as always, she will never grow up! Everybody has only to look out for her! With all one’s heart it was needless to let die Stefan first and then Bonnie and Damon in Season 5! Is the goal of the show that every character died at least once? In every season there are many new characters which all die after a short time. Also the characters do not develop. How long will this go on? It is boring now. So I decided to stop watching it. The only reason I watched it ’til now was Caroline Forbes. She is really great. I would love to be a little bit more like her. Ok I also still hope that Klaroline happens. They are sooooo cute! I do not understand how they could replace Klaus by Enzo. I mean it is obvious that they did it because they are both evil, good-looking and only nice to Caroline. Maybe if Enzo would have been there first I would have shipped Carenzo but KLAROLINE FOREVER!!!

The last one at Prime Time Television!!!

Ok I talked to much about TVD, back to live. Today I did nothing except eating, showering and reading fanfics about Jelsa but I did not find a good one yet. Today was a lazy day, tomorrow I have to do homework and the presentations. :-((((( I do not want to!

CU Becca

P.S. The result from the task is the number 29 does not fit in, it should be replaced by 24,5.

P.P.S. KLAROLINE!!!
