I must admit, these past few weeks made me realise that this year is not going to be too bad after all.
I am employed now and I actually enjoy my job most of the time. Had to present a paper on validation and was praised to the high heavens afterwards.
What a boost for my ego ^^ And since I have money coming in regularly, I can actually afford to buy stuff for myself again.
My first purchase was a ticket for a live show of Welcome To Night Vale. In the last episode Joseph Fink announced that the show will be touring Europe this year.
There will be a show in Hamburg and I only live about 30 min away! So I took that chance ^^ It will be a great evening, I'm sure of it!
Next I bought the 3rd Sherlock Season on DVD, My Neighbour Totoro Special Edition, and a couple of Manga.
Plus I plan to visit my best friend in the South soon ^^
Maybe I will gather my courage and even fly to England for 2 days in December to watch Russell Howard live in Birmingham.
But that is a big MAYBE.
Until a few days ago I was in an all-time-low mood, because I had to spent all my savings for reeducation and my new/used car (which I love).
But now that I actually can dedicate time AND money to my hobbies again I feel much better.
Let us hope it will stay that way...
