Hm. I still suck at taking pictures and there’s still no proper pictures of the apartment (it’s horrible, I know). They’ll show, soon, promise.
I intended to work on my essay about sea turtles and their navigation, but that changed pretty fast. I was going to start typing, when Bayern München made a goal. It’s the Champions League finale and the Dutchman is working, while I try to work. It’s really hard to not get distracted when you live with a soccer enthusiast. Especially, when I don’t have my own desk/working place yet. Annoying, but wherever I can sit with my laptop will do for now.
We had lovely friends living here for a week during the Eurovision Song Contest last week. It was magical. I love our friends, and when they called and asked if they could stay, it was a clear answer for me. While having a three year old here wasn’t as tough as I thought, it sure brought up the place. And Zoe was really curious of having another little human around.
One thing stuck in my head though. One night, the friends were working, and I was working on my essay. As soon as I started typing, they kind of just blurred out that I type really fast. I don’t know. I just know that since elementary school, I’ve worked really hard to type fast because of a speed typing contest we had during computer classes. I hated losing (still do), so when I got my frist computer at home, I took the first three Harry Potter (and any other book I could come across), and started write them on the computer. That developed pretty fast and I kept improving. I improved so much, I came up top 3 almost all the time. And that only pushed me harder to be able to write faster.
However, I must have become quite rusty since last November. I haven’t written as much as I did before. Those countless ours in the computerlabs at uni pays off. Now I can watch TV and type at the same time without spelling mistakes. But I still tend to press the space bar a little too often. Anyway, I think I’ll go hang out with the Dutchman and his best friend who’s staying here during the weekend.
Until then, enjoy my view on my temporary work station haha.
//c_Cae; ugh, never thought I’d mention soccer in a post ;O
