Packing...



  ...is absolutely no fun!! Especially when you are too lazy and unmotivated, so everything gets left up for the last moment... as in a day before traveling...
     We have come to the conclusion that we don't have all that many things to pack up, but since it's personal/home items we are talking about, mixing and matching them, wrapping them as best as possible with papers and bubble wrap, then carefully placing everything in the boxes is quite time consuming! Imagine a life-sized game of Tetris, except you may also have round or irregular shaped pieces...
     Aaargh! If only I would have a magic wand...

Cuteness overload

Oh...I just couldn't help myself... Isn't that the cutest thing you've seen? And doesn't knowing that it's those ducklings first trip down to the pond make it even cuter? :D Spring time in all it's glory!








Bad days


  
      You know the kind... Everybody has them... Some, more often than others. Personally, I think I am a pretty happy cookie, but sometimes the 'dark side' catches up with my thoughts and I am feeling a bit confused...
     I don't enjoy exposing these deeply personal feelings out in the open like this, so I will keep things brief.
     This time it's about the realization that the person I wish I would be does not coincide with the person that I am. I mean we all have somewhere in the back of our heads an imprinted image of who we would like to project into the world. Maybe it's an ambitious, but fair person. Maybe it's kind and generous. Maybe lively and knowledgeable. Maybe incredibly irresistible and full of confidence...
     As days and days go by, we tend to (maybe) unconsciously work on that projection. Put all of our thoughts, behavior, capabilities and strength into that particular projection and we think we are good. Well on our way to representing this person that we imagined. We may be even getting a little cocky, as people around us are complimenting and cheering on our particularities, ensuring a feeling of success and accomplishment.
     That is when it usually happens. 'What if it isn't so? What if thinking that we are what we really wish to be, is actually not an accomplished thing? It must be to good to be true...'  There is always a small crack of doubt that gets bigger and soon counteracts all of the positive feelings we own, replacing them with even more doubt, uncertainty, confusion, stress, panic, anger and sadness.
     In the midst of all the anguish and thrill revolving around packing our home here in Munich, trying to figure everything out, seeing all of our dearest friends, spending a bit more time with our family, moving and my upcoming birthday, this is how I've been feeling. It is not a pretty sight, that is certain!
     Already feeling much better, hence the open talk you've just witnessed. But I can't help wondering, how many times must a person start over and learn the same lessons in life in order to completely avoid making the same mistakes and actually getting nearer and nearer to this imaginary personality?

In the countryside - Spring!

Fresh air - YES! Crude grass - YES! Bright dandelions - YES! Budding trees - YES! Sunshine and warmth - YES! Living nature - YES! Chirping birds - YES! Beauty - YES! Happiness - YES!
















News Bar

     Although Munich has an abundance of lovely eateries, bars and cafes to go around, for some reason, whenever we are hungry and in no mood for experiencing, we end up at News Bar. It is a student-ish place in the Universität area, on Amalienstrasse 55, corner with  Schellingstrasse to be more precise. Considering it is always full, I am guessing we are not the only ones in on their super-delicious food, relaxed atmosphere and very affordable prices. I am usually getting the tomato soup or Caesar salad with turkey breast pieces, but I have also tried their humongous burger... Not the best I've ever had, but definitely doing the trick when the burger fever strikes...

First BBQ of the season

     This all happened last week, when we got seriously spoiled with hot weather and clear blue skies-not what I can say about the weather we've been having since...My guess is spring is just a big tease this year!  :)
     It only seemed natural that we would pick up our blankets, foods and drinks and get out in the fresh spring air!

F.C. Bayern

     Both my husband and I were really eager to get to the Allianz Arena and actually watch a football game before we move away and through the kindness of a good friend who provided us with tickets, we got to do so over the weekend. By now they have already set themselves as winners of the Championship, but still have to play the rest of the matches. This was a game they have won 4-0 against F.C. Nürnberg, so I would say it was pretty cool! :D

     Got to admit though, I got really distracted at times by the super fans in the south court! They were putting up a real show and it was just awesome to watch!
