(New Post) My first Tweet-UP

A few of you know that I am on Twitter. It’s almost 1 year since I am on their now. I don’t need to mention how I love to tweet and making friends on there. :))

Over this past year I made several picture postcard exchanges and send and received birthday cards or packages to people who became my friends.

But one thing didn’t happen: A Tweet-up. I have never meet anyone I tweet with.

  That changed TODAY!!! 😀

Today I met @BienAgiter and @Helena_Jackson .Two Teenage Girls who live in Hamburg. It was a short but really fun meeting. We had Bubble Tea and laughed a lot. 🙂 I am happy that it was so joyful and not awkward at all, even though I was super nervous before the meeting. The Girls told me they were nervous too. lol^^

Next time we meet for yummy Sushi! (Cant waaiiit)

Thank you so much for the lovely time Girls! See you soon!!

(New Post) Day Trip to Berlin City

Today I want to tell you about the short trip to Germany’s Capital me and the lovely Mister made yesterday (15.-16. June 2011). But before we get things started I need you to get “in the grove” and whats the best to get into a Cities vibe than music?!! 😀 Here are two songs about Berlin. Enjoy!

First video is also from one of my fave bands.:)

And here comes the second video. Ready?? GO!=)

Okay lovely bunch now you are in the right mood for Berlin. 🙂 In the those two vids you had the chance to see also some sights of Germany’s Capital. Hope you liked it?!

Me and Kai road tripped to Berlin to see one of our favourite bands since years: SYSTEM OF A DOWN!!!:) They havent been in Germany for years and as we heard they would come to give one gig over here we knew..we have to GO no matter what! 🙂

We both took two days off from work and drive to Berlin early on Wednesday, 15. June. The distance between Hamburg and Berlin are 289km ( 179.57 miles) , which took us about 3 hours to ride. We already had a hotel room for the night so everything was really relaxed. After we checked in around noon, we strolled around the main shopping area called Kurfürstendamm or Ku’damm 😀

As the gig would start early, which means 7pm we havent had that much of time to go sightseeing or such. It’s not the first time we were there so it wasnt that much of a pity to don’t go seeing all the sights. We had a few shops we love to go, including a Quicksilver shop and of course the famous shopping mall KaDeWe.  The best about the shopping center is the food area. You can get EVERYTHING there. So many international brands from all sorts of Countries. flipping brilliant.

The weather in Berlin is always different from anywhere else in Germany. It was very warm and humid and strolling through those air-conditioned shops was really a relief but every now and then every shopping King&Queen needs a time out. We had our at Dolores-Berlin yummy burritos, which were really good.

It took us more than one hour through Berlin to get from the city center to the east of Berlin where the Open Air Stage Wuhlheide is. That was one exciting hour! The traffic in Berlin is MAD!!! No bicycle driveways like in Hamburg so everyone who has a bike drives as he likes on the street..cycling through the queueing cars…Parking is also very experimental in Berlin…park as you like would describe it perfectly.Dont bother that your action would cause a huge traffic….naah just GO FOR IT! 😉

We got there just in time to see the Opening act, which was Dredg .They were really good. Of course we all went mental as

System Of A Down  hit the stage around 8pm. The audience was mainly men and every now and then you saw a Girl.That was a bit unusual for me to but I didn’t mind at all. The vibe at the Open Air was amazing. Everyone was singing, dancing and rocking the mosh pit. It was the first time that I was in a Circle Pit. If you don’t know what that means -> take a look at this vid 😀  and it was freaking amazing!!! So much heat and energy. Totally blew my mind!!

Thanks to all the  youtubers out there I can show you a vid about yesterday evening rocking with System Of A Down in Berlin.

They played two hours exactly and after that we all looked like we had a shower. So sweaty and wet!! 😀 Our day ended as we drove back to the hotel along of the Bundestag (German parliament) the Brandenburger Tor and the embassies of different Countries.

I don’t need to mention that we just fell a sleep as we got back out of the shower. 😀

Day trips are great. For me they feel like pure adventure. So much to see in a little amount of time. Yes, it is super stressful and exhausting but always worth it! 😀

New Job

Maybe some of you noticed that I am not tweeting or facebooking as much as I did the last whole year. The reason is that I have started a new Job at the first of November.

After I graduated from Uni last year with a Bachelor in Social Work  I had a job interview and an acceptance but than…dang the financial crises hit in and they didn’t know if they can pay my place of work.

To make a long story short. I decided to wait a whole year for my place of work as I so wanted to have to work there so badly. It wasnt easy and some months really got long for me but in the end the whole waiting was so much worth it.

My new Job is in a Church Community here in Hamburg not far where I live. I am going to be a Fundraiser and a Project manager for 5 social projects who all have the function to educate, to build up or support Single Mum’s and their children as they have in Germany the highest risk of getting and staying poor.

After my second week I can say that I really feel comfortable there. I work 30h a week but when and where I work these thirty hours is completely up to me. I have my own office (the left desk is mine the other one is used by voluntary worker every evening as they run a  Help-hotline for Mums from 8 to 10pm) but I can choose to work at home if I feel like that.

The same is with the working times..we dont have a check clock or things like that. We write them down on our own. But what I liked the most is that me and my female Boss have a talk once a week to set up a to-do-list for me and then I can work the list off on my own. She is there for questions and stuff but she lets me do the things alone. So as you can see I love this freedom to work like that. I work in a team with three woman and I really enjoy that even though I am way younger as the other woman. That’s ok.

I am looking forward to this upcoming two years as this job is limited until 2012. I have the feeling that they are going to extend it afterwords but we will see. 🙂
