Another year has passed

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Another year has passed. Today I went to the cemetery after work and put a flower arrangement on the grave and lit a new candle. I wonder what you can think when you look down from heaven on the world and watch the current events from outside. But I am also a little bit relieved that the whole fate does not take place at this time, because then it would probably not have been possible to visit him in the hospital so often and everything would probably be even more painful.

“Not a success story”

Published on in 🔗 Links

Wise words by Manuel Moreale: Maybe this is just me getting tired or maybe it’s just a sign I need to spend more time outside. Whatever the case may be, let me just say that it’s OK if your life is not a “success story”. It’s ok if you simply wake up in the morning and try your best to be a great husband, wife, dad, mother, brother, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend, colleague, neighbor, or simply a good human being. In my opinion, that’s far more important and valuable than everything else.

Going to the cemetery always reminds me what a precious gift life is and how grateful I am to be alive and that I am also doing so well.

This year is coming to an end and so I want to take the chance to review the year and write down what happened this year. On the technical side as well as personally.

I am so grateful!

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

A little over two months ago I got together with my best friend (whom I have known for several years) and since then my life has not been what it used to be. And I don’t mean that negatively.

The 2nd of November

Published on in ✍️ Posts

As I write this, it’s still the 1st of November, but the 2nd is just around the corner. Those days, two years ago, were probably the worst of my life.

Wasted life time

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

This semester I have two lectures each week (not in total obviously), each one of those taking 3 hours from 4pm to 7:15pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. Both are given by a professor with a strong accent and a sometimes little bit strange view of the world. I think I never wasted that much time before in my life.

You never know how things turn out

Published on in ✍️ Posts

If I had considered a year ago what my life might look like today, I would certainly have guessed something completely different from what is reality today.
