All entries for November 2004
November 27, 2004
off we go into our final week of Winter Term.
Five more lousy days of research, reading and red eyes (sitting in front of the computer).
But the promising thought of relaxing xmas holidays keeps me going!
relaxing…...wait a minute!!!
How could I forget?!?
Two more essays due in January!!
This probably means that I'll be sitting in my little chamber in Germany all December writing some st…. essays.
So what have I been up to?
Not very much to be fair.
Just trying to get the essays done which are due this upcoming Friday.
Long hours in the library and in front of my laptop.
In very rare moments I find the time to recover from these horrible torments I have to endure.
Proof is provided (see recently added galleries)!
The Xmas Dinner was really great.
Had great fun!
Team Germany lost in a fierce battle against Team France in the First Pitcher Downing Championships.
To our shame contributed that Team France was supported by infamous Annabell "Down it".
Don't worry: We will rage sweet revenge!
PS: Anyone read the book "To kill a Mockingbird"?
Please have a look at this ;-)
How to kill a Mockingbird
November 10, 2004
One more week is over that means one more week to cover here.
Last week didn't start the way you want it to start.
I was sick from Monday on, missing my voice and trying to get down my fever drinking tea.
Not the best preconditions if you have to hand in an assignment the next Monday! But dutifull as I am I sat down and worked some cruel hours so I would be finished by Friday! Why Friday?
Because very early on Saturday morning (too early for me) we left for Europe's biggest city, England's capital, home of the Queen: London!
You know what I'm talking about if you have been there.
If you haven't: Go there!
I love London, the flair you only get in big cities, trendy districts etc. etc.
But since I had already seen all the main sights I didn't join my friends when they visited Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the Tower but rather met with my dear cousin whom I hadn't seen in 5 (!) long years.
Can you believe it that destingy brought us together in London?!
Amazing isn't it!
At night we tried to find THE place to got to in London which we realized is not the easiest of tasks. Some recommendations for the next time I'm there are very welcome!
Nevertheless we managed to stay out until 4am and then went more or less drunk and massively tired to our accomodation known by the inviting name "The Generator".
Of course we had some problems checking in since we hadn't booked private rooms and so had to split up in different rooms at 4.30 in the morning. You can imagine the guys who had already been sleeping in these rooms were not really amazed to see (and hear us) trying to open the doors.
We managed and amazingly got up at around 9.00 am!
Sunday was Tate Modern and Camden Market of which both were worth every single minute spent there. Magnificient!
Several hours and traffic jams later we were back in Coventry, tired but happy!
I will definetly be back in London very soon.
So everybody I didn't call or manage to meet there: see you soon!
Enjoy the pictures!
