Time runs by and runs really fast

Wow, friday allready.

I got to see my papers from the last test on wednesday.
I allready found three points where I had the right answer and did not get a point.
One more and I can put down a quest about my results.
(I am still searching... perhaps....)

On the other side I have to start learning for the next written tests.
Next weekend I will be away for learning.

And work, normal life and so on goes on, too.

I guess I get to know why taking these exams is not fun at all, I am just happy that I have found nice gals to learn together with. :-)

I bought a lot of choc to get me through these days.
I love zotter.

What is your fav choc?

Why taking exams?

I do not know how it works where you life and work, but in my work there is a lot changing.
I got my bachelor degree about nearly twenty years ago - at a time where there where the first aviable pcs coming to our work places.

I took some pc classes later, but just one week courses and so (I was so lucky to have a bit of dos programming at school in the 90s so I was not afraid to use a pc).

Now we have a major shift at work again - I was one of the first to get all alone starting to translate it at my work place (putting new law into daily work). I took an exam to know what I do after a several weekend course. This led to me wanting to know more so I asked to get more training. Well, here in Germany everything needs an exam or test.

I am trying to get a paper. I allready finished three tests - failed one and have still more to come.

It is a bit hard to start a new job and be away for 1/4 of the time for learning and having to learn for exams, too.

But hey, why not trying?

Yesterday - Ruhr

Can you believe it? This little river gives the name to a big industrial area a bit more downstream - the "Ruhrgebiet".

I was yesterday near this river to get some more lectures for my next exams.

Yesterday I was tending a bit to this patch of land. I hear a little noise to my left and was curious. I looked there - and was friendly greeted by our neighbour standing in his garden in plain bright white underwear.

Being late for the train home I ran until I still saw it on the tracks. I reached it, my breath going hard, the train still standing in the station, all doors closed. Trying to open one door I was surprised it still opened - I decided to get in although the train was starting to roll out of the station. I was a bit terrified, it was a fast train. Everything went well and I was early at home.

Last week in Berlin

Last week in Berlin was not the best of weeks I had.
I felt tired, not able to learn any more, detached from my inner self.

While the other went out to the musical after our course I stayed in the hotel and took a big bag of sleep.

I now got the numbers. Just 20 % made it in Hannover and nearly all of our course made it in Cologne.
There is not much you can do against it.
It still makes me angry.

Do not play Big Zampano - you are just human

I finished one part of my exams, but missed another with 4 points missing to solved, ugghhh.

I am not happy - I can sit it again, but it is such a nuiseance.
I finished the one I learned not much for and missed the one I sat for 14 days learning.

No, not just the fabric is called jersey - a little island in the channel is called Jersey, too.
I will go there in July. I hope to have a nice quiet artsy stay there.

Do you dream of holidays, too?

Today - the first of May

The first of may - an official holiday in Germany.
Like usual we were invited for a walking tour in the woods with friends. I am not able to walk so far in such a short amount of time at the moment so I declined (well, it is raining and I have my menstruation, so it was no hard decision for me).

I am now home - doing some tasks here.
I started to finish my new pair of trousers and had to realize that the fabric meets in an odd way - well, it is in the back, but still...

What are you up to?
