ESC-diary in retrospect, month no. 9

– 1st of may, wednesday –
The first of May is a holiday in Austria, which meant a day off work for me. I needed a calm day, to disconnect and to think. I took the train to Hohenems, where I went hiking to the ruins of an 11th century castle. I turned off my mobile phone and just walked around outside, taking breaks writing in my journal. In the evening, I went to a concert of Eagle-Eye Cherry with two friends, which was really nice. Read more »

Rethinking 2020 🍀

– rethinking is good –
Of course, making a list of goals at the beginning of the year is good, but in my ever-changing reality reconsidering them sometimes is even better. Even if that means heartlessly ripping out a page of my journal and redoing it. And that’s exactly what I’m doing here: rethinking 2020 and the goals I have for the first year of this new decade.

My life is split up into three categories, if it’s even possible to split up a life in three categories.

There were way too many people and we weren’t organised so well, so we had to do a million last-minute things and that was exhausting. On Thursday we also went to a gala event with work, which was cool to see, but at the same time totally not my crowd. I was super exhausted after these two days. Read more »

March 2019
ESC-diary in retrospect, month no. 7

Disclaimer: March was really cool.

– 2nd of march, saturday – 
During the day, I went to Bregenz with a friend for a nice walk at the lake. In the evening we went to a party in our kitchen, with some other friends too. We ended up in a bar and I had a really good time. It ended with one guy sandwiched between two mattresses having a huge piece of chewing gum sticking to his hand, trying to have a philosophical conversation. A friend stayed the night and had to leave in his Indian costume the next morning, also very funny. Sunday, consequently, was a lazy day drinking coffee and ordering pizza with the roommates.
