Monthly Archive for December, 2011


Man has it been a crazy year. I don’t really know that I can quite tackle the job of summing it up yet, I mean, there were amazing ups and then there were the crashing downs.

I think I have been, at some points this year anyway, more sad and sorry for myself than I’ve ever been in my entire life. There have been some seriously terrible moments. Too depressing even now to think about – a tear will well up in my eye if I do. I guess I have to consider myself lucky though, I’ve got an amazing bunch of supportive friends (thanks guys, you know who you are), and a great job with an awesome company and amazingly understanding and supportive colleagues…..and now an awesome new pad with cool-as flat-mates, so I guess it ain’t all bad. No, not all bad at all.

Flying out to Frankfurt tomorrow for Christmas with Ina’s family funnily enough, I mean, Ina and I are getting along a lot better these days and hopefully, if all goes well, things will just keep on improving. Let’s see what the new year brings huh!? Hopefully not more heartache/heartbreak, I don’t think I could handle any more of that for the time-being.

Anyway, after Frankfurt we’ll be back in Berlin on Monday night and on Wednesday it’s my birthday…so a little celebration at The Bird with a few friends for that one. Nothing serious mind, just burgers and beer – some of my favorites. And then there’s New Year – still no idea what I’m doing for that. Oh, did I mention that it is absolutely crazy at work as well? I mean, the only night I’ve gotten out of here before 9.30pm this week was Tuesday – and that was only because of the appointment with a counselor that Ina and I had. It is insane. So much work, skeleton staff, lots of sickness – and a software company like ours generally makes around 60% of their revenue in the last month of the year. So you can imagine.

I will be so happy to be sitting on a plane tomorrow – not that that will be the end of it, oh no, my iPhone is connected to work and I need to stay contactable just in case any confusion or issues arise due to my absence. Hopefully everything will go swimmingly until I return (02.01.12) – that is the plan.

Now it’s time for an inspirational classic video timeout:

Is there a hint in that somewhere? Yes, you know it. What with all the celebrations going on at this time of year I thought why not mention a celebration of our own that is planned for Friday the 13th, January next year. It is your classic house party, no real reason to have it other than to have it. I mean, I am relatively new in the apartment/area but that isn’t the reason. We kinda just wanna have a party – and really, is there a better date!? So check the flyer below for info (by yours truly), and if you’re in the area in the evening and we know each other somehow, you’re more than welcome to drop on by…..I guess any time from 9pm onwards…. 🙂
