Week 21 – One of your favorite TV series
I used to watch a lot of tv, but for some while now, I barely watch any tv at all. Sitting on the balcony and sipping some wine is just too intriguing.
Two shows that I really like(d) are “Friends” and it’s modern counterpart (as I like to say) “How I met your mother”, because both shows pin it down to what is important: having good friends.
What are your favorite tv shows?
Week 20 – How important do you think education is?
I think education is the central point of our life.
It defines what we’ll be able to achieve in our life. It marks the level of civilisation we’re living in. It starts with what we learn from our family. It shows in the way we treat other people. It goes way beyond the things we learn in school. And in the end, isn’t there a saying that goes like “We learn for life…”?
Unfortunately, most of the time we only learn to value education when we’re grown up and consider it a torture during our adolescence.
I won’t go any further into it at this point, because once I start, I’ll never stop.
Any views on education you’d like to share?
Day 19 – Tell us about your family
Funnily family has been a great topic lately with us planning our wedding.
My boyfriend and I both have a big family. Say 30 on each side just considering parents, siblings, aunts, cousins and grandparents. So our extended family sums up to approximately 150 people.
So when we were talking about whom to invite we were talking about a small family wedding – 150 people. Thank you there.
But I love it. I think it’s great to have such a big family. As a kid there’s always someone around to play with and growing older there is always someone to turn to for advice. We’re all pretty close and see each other about 5-10 times a year, depending on the family member.
Of course, during holiday season this will cause some stress, but still it’s great!
Do you have a big or a small family?
Week 17 – Highlights and downs over the past year
- Moving into an apartment with my boyfriend
- Finishing my studies
- Starting a job
- The death of my boyfriend’s grandmother
Can’t think of any other event that I’d consider a down… I guess my last year was pretty “happy”.
Week 16 – Your views on popular music
I don’t really have a view.
I listen to the radio in the morning, so I’m averagely informed about current pop music, but I grow bored listening to the radio after about an hour. So I’ll turn it off and prefer the silence or sounds coming in from outdoors.
When I was around 13, I couldn’t imagine ever not being interested in who’s hot and who’s not, but at 25 I have become that very person. I’ve got my favorite music, which centers somewhere inbetween classic, country and 90s and I pretty much listen to it and that’s it.
Anything you’d like to share about pop music?
Week 15 – Your favorite blogs
There are about 15 blogs I follow more or less regularly. They’re all kinds of different, that’s why I keep them in different lists:

Week 14 – Your earliest memory
There are several memories I’d put into the earliest memory drawer, because they all happened around the same time when I was about 2 -2 1/2 years.
I remember being in the garden with my grandpa picking berries. He warned me to stay away from the dog – who kept following me around. Imagine an old German shepherd’s dog, very intimidating for a 2 year old. Talk about eye level ;-).
The other memory is me being with my mom. We’re on the way to university sitting in the train. Yes, my mom was still studying when I was born. Later we went to the library where I got some sweets from the dorrman. I also remember sitting in the library and looking down at other people from some kind of gallery and that my mom was afraid I’d fall down.
I guess these are my earliest childhood memories. What are you first memories?
