Uncertain times

Is M going to get this job and will we thus be moving soon to the New World? Or will we stay here for a few more months and should I thus say 'yes' to Mrs.Headhunter and her quite interesting yet not perfect job proposal?

Uncertainty is strenous. Yet mine is nothing compared to what my dear friend and her family are going through. I think of you, hope that the operation will be successful, and that everything will turn out ok at the end. I pray that she will be as lucky in her unluck as my Mom.

That time again

Many of you had told me so. And you were right. But I still needed some time off, relaxing and doing as little as possible. Now, after two months of it, I can farely say that I am ready to work again. Or better said, that I would like to start working again. Nothing long-term of course, as the Hannover experience in itself is not long-term, but ideally working on temporary projects and events.
Isn't Hannover known as the city of fairs after all? Well there's an idea right there... I sent my cv this week and hope to be able to start soon. Too bad I was too late for the CeBIT, which has invaded the city since yesterday!

Potential girlfriend

I have met quite a few people these past two months. At the schools of course, but also because M has been organising dinners or drinks with many of his co-workers and their wives/girlfriends. All the guys were always very nice and interesting but the girls tended to be quite strange and uninteresting. I never found something in common with them. I was thus never really looking forward to seeing them again. What on earth were we going to talk about this time around?!
Last night was an exception. We had drinks with a new couple, another colleague of M and his wife. I like her. Sus is interesting open-minded cosmopolite, and we have many things in common. We immediately connected and chatted the night away. I believe I finally met a potential girlfriend. Et d'une pierre deux coups: Girl talks with Sus will make me improve my speaking German.

I can't keep still. I can't keep it for myself. I am fidgeting from excitement since last night. But I am fidgeting even more since I clicked on 'confirm'. I have got to let it out: I cannot wait until Thursday April 6th, when I will take off to Nice, France, to spend 4 days with Beanie in Cannes. This means so much to look forward to: a new Girls' weekend, Sun & Ocean, indulging in luxury for four days (such as sipping a fresh strawberry juice on the terrace of the Carlton), seeing Beanie again in Europe after such a long time, getting to miss M and then celebrate our reencounter. . . My, Oh my, I cannot wait!
