Today was an excellent day for looking at the rainbow in the city. A little drizzle coupled with insisting sunlight made for a long lasting effect, and I had the rainbow at my side the whole walk from Schwedenplatz down to Friedensbrücke.
Not at all a bad day. :-)
Yesterday I got dropped off here. I had no idea where I was. Turns out I was close to Niederhofstrasse on the u6, a place I can safely say that I have never been before.
It had the same sort of feel as Favoritenstrasse in the 10th district. I had to look around for a bit, just to find the entry to the ubahn. Tiny, unplanned afventure. :-)
So, we did finally get some snow. I would have loved to enjoy it fully today, but I was caught between packing up the old flat and resting as I am pretty sick. So I very quickly took this very ordinary photo at Schwedenplatz on my last trip home. Now, rest, sleep, more antibiotics and then more packing to do tomorrow!
I left WU library late last night, and somehow with the lights and the fog it looked like a ufo. :-)
All day was like this. But then, I was in the library all day, so it didn’t affect me much.
They keep the Christmas lights on Graben up in January as well because it is good for the businesses in the area. I think that’s totally ok.
I have seen the future! Blei gießen is a tradition in Austria, and basically what you do is to melt some led, throw it into cold water, and then interpret the shape using a chart on the back of the cardboard from the packet that you bought. :-P
My fortune sort of looks like a heart, which means luck and joy. It also looks like a rooster someone said, which is a bird, and that means unforeseen luck. Well…. There are no bad fortunes on this cardboard thing. I guess that means that nothing bad can happen. :-D
Happy new year to you all!
A lot of bloggers seem to be doing this, and although I don’t want to go on and on about my year I suppose I should say a few words. 2015 for me is a year of… Decline I suppose I would call it. It’s been shit, and I’m really happy it’s over soon. I had the same feeling in 2009 at the end of my masters, and I think and hope that means that next year will feel like 2010 which was pretty great. I have been neglecting my blog because of several things.
My job ending, and finding myself unemployed.
My boyfriend dumping me.
Now the situation is :
I’m finishing my thesis in January.
I’m moving out of our broken home in January.
I’m defending my thesis in March.
I am applying for jobs everywhere, and have no idea where I will be in a couple of months. Certainly not in a year!
And… I feel rather good about the future. :-)
Thank you all for reading my now less frequently updated blog. I follow many of you, and enjoy your blog posts immensely, even if I have been in a bit of a vacuum the last 5 months.
Have an absolutely splendid 2016! I certainly plan to.
