Good morning, lovelies! ♥

I feel like sharing the view from my office in Bern )

Also, I went to see Tangled yesterday (unfortunately, it was only being shown in German -.-"). OMG, what fun! ^____^ I laughed so much and I'd like to see it again. I'm not sure if the 3D was really necessary, but I just LOVED some of the characters (pascal, maximus ♥! and of course the two lovebirds ♥).

back to black

over the past year or so, I've been experimenting with my hair color. Thanks to the boy, no less.

I've been dying my hair for about ten years now, and it's mostly been black. pretty much everyone who does know me with my real hair color (with the exception of my dad...^^;) says that 'dark' looks better than the unspectacular mid-ash brown that would be my natural hair. Those who don't know my real hair color usually don't even notice it, unless the roots are showing badly because of my laziness to re-dye. XD

Anyway, the boy has been whining at me to grow the dyed hair out and leave it natural. No. Out of the question (I really dislike my real hair color). But I was willing to compromise and went from black to dark brown, and it wasn't all bad, really. It's a bit softer than the black, especially when freshly dyed, and it's still dark enough not to clash with my beloved red clothes. However, a little while ago I came across a couple of photos where I had my hair all black, and I fell back in love with it. So, the next time I bought dye, I went for the black again.

Now, one good thing though, that came from the experimenting is, that while I was too scared of the black dye to dye my hair myself (black is REALLY black, and any mistake, be it blotches on skin or missed spots in the hair, is just very very visible), I did dare doing it with the dark brown.
That was not a problem. And this time? I DID IT AGAIN. WITH BLACK DYE.

---> IT TURNED OUT FABULOUSLY! ^__________________^ *is very proud of her mad hair dying skills*

thus, not only back to black, but BACK TO SPOTLESS BLACK! Huzzah!


*cough* post-Christmas/New Years entry shall follow tomorrow. er. later today, that is.

bed now, appointment at the dentist in...6 1/2 hours. Yikes.

[hahaha... I didn't get around posting this on Monday (when I finally got home after 10pm), and totally forgot about it yesterday. ^^; so, you get it today...]

Monday morning, 10.30 am, and I'm sitting on the train back from a wonderful weekend in Frankfurt where [personal profile] iniq and I stayed at [personal profile] gwy's place.

Much fun was had...and what's about to come )

Awwwww! Just saw a couple of deer running across the field. Yes that needed mentioning. *smirk*

There are more things I should probably mention, but I'm running out of time and frankly, I also don't know where to start anymore. that's the thing with being absent from LJ for long amounts of time - you have so much to tell that you don't know what to say. ~.~

[Edit as of Wednesday morning] There IS something I have to mention! THANK YOU, [profile] merith, [personal profile] gundamnook, and [personal profile] ronsoftie for the lovely Christmas cards! ♥ ♥ ♥!

OMG, there's a new "Grand Designs" series airing in the UK! ^___________^ *downloading NOW*


Also. OMG, I need to go to bed....@_@ early start tomorrow. like. early early, even for me. *siiiiiiiiiiigh*

farewell, my "one-day-off-a-week"-life...

...not dead...^_~

There is a softly snoring boy on my shoulder, twitching in his sleep occasionally and holding onto my arm as if he was afraid I would leave ♥♥♥!
There is also something weird/boring on tv because I can't reach the remote because of said sleeping boy. oh well.

it's good to be home. ^_^

however, I had a most lovely weekend in Munich with [personal profile] gwy, who I decided to visit spontaneously as I had an additional day off on Friday (my company moved to another part of Zurich and they decided to give us the day off while they did the major moving). We talked a lot and caught up on many things, including loooooooooooooads of Merlin stuff. *laughs* We had yummy food every day (sushi, blueberry pancakes, fresh dates, and butterkeks ice cream being the highlights), had a most wonderful walk in the English Garden and an old cemetery, and did everything to ignore the nasty weather that held up for most of the weekend.

Munich needs to be closer, so I can see gwygwy more often. *firm nod*

I also got to meet [personal profile] chaosmaka and [personal profile] ronsoftie and spend a fun afternoon with them ^______________^ *waves* hey ladies! More time next time, yes?

And I met up with a really old friend of mine. We've known each other since we were about two years old but lost touch over the last couple of years (it was actually ten years ago that I met her in person), and it was great to finally see her again and catch up on ...the last ten years. XD

We are not mentioning the insane amount of money I spent.. but hey, new stuff! *grins*

Anyway, it's back to work tomorrow, so bed time now. *sleeeeeepy*

morning has broken

Sunday morning, 5.15am.....

...the boy's fire pager goes off and out the door he is....

and now I'm sitting here, not sure if I should go back to bed. Since I usually get up around this time, going back to bed now is probably just resulting in my being tired and sleepy all day.
On the other hand... it's a Sunday and it's STILL DARK OUTSIDE! ~.~

hm...curl up on the sofa and catch up with some of my shows? might be an idea. ^_^

I know I should probably use the opportunity to make a real update on here, but I have this strange feeling that there is so much to tell...that I have nothing to say. Or maybe better, I'm not sure where to start.

So...while this is not a meme, ask me any question (about my life or fandom or something else), and I'll try to answer as truthfully as I can. ^_^

i are ninja...

... because I'm actually not here, really.


I'm technically on vacation in the apartment up in the mountains with the boy until wednesday. we took off late friday night after both working overtime... as we've done pretty much daily over the past two-three weeks...

I thought I would have internet up there, but alas, my new computer does not seem to be dial-up compatible anymore and that's all we have there. XP

So, why can I post this entry? well, I had to come down for a couple of hours to take over the new apartment (I HAVE THE KEYS! IT IS MINE NOW! mwahahaha).however, there was no chosing the date, unfortunately, so, instead of sleeping in and then going skiing with the boy this morning, I had to get up early and drive all the way down here. however, since we did forget a couple of crucial things in the rush late friday night ( like...half of our food. >.<.) I used to opportunity to use the internet real quick, get a couple of things done that were long overdue, and in a couple of minutes I'm gonna get back in the car and drive back up into snow, sunshine and loooooove. XD

Also? I'm gonna move in two weeks! ^_____________^ Yay!

The not so yay? I haven't packed a thing yet. *cough* But that's what the upcoming weekend is for. Yes.

as I said, I'll be back wednesday night, but I fear that that thursday and friday will be crazy as I will have to make up for my absence at work. augh.

I'm very much looking forward to the move being over so I can settle down at least at one place....

miss you guys. ;_;

I JUST got the confirmation that I got the apartment I applied for on Monday. ^__________^

Long story short:

Although I LOVE my apartment in Bern, I got REALLY fed up with commuting (2 hours one way) and, therefore, never being at home since weekends are also spent at the boy's place.

So...about 3 or 4 weeks ago, I started looking for a new apartment, which would be no more than 50 minutes (by public transport) from work and the boy's place, respectively.

And now I've got one. ^____________________________^ *does the uber happy dance* it's a nice place, almost twice the size of the one in Bern, 2 1/2 rooms (which in this case means small bedroom and large living room including a little dining area). There is also a bathtub and a terrasse/garden outside, which were two of my requirements. \0/

Now I need to find someone to take over my old apartment (otherwise I have to pay rent for both places for 3 months...YIKES).

Busy days ahead... (I am also working 100% at the moment...), but oh, oh, OH! EXCITEMENT! NEW PLACE to furnish and DECORATE! Living close to work and the boy (and some of my very close friends including <lj user="belina")! Whaaaaaaaaaa!
haraamis: (can't be serious)
I am very...very...puzzled right now (and rather amused, too.

I just received a message from an old classmate from grade school on facebook... asking me how old my baby was and how I'm enjoying being a mother?


ah...beg your pardon?

I'm not quite following...

(I wonder who he confused me with or where he got the information from... XD and no, I haven't been keeping secrets. not as far as I know...:P)

Today, the boy and I have been together for half a year.


and we had an absolutely perfect day.
haraamis: (Natsume - gentle breeze)
first of all, since I didn't get around doing this yesterday:

happy belated birthday, [livejournal.com profile] aka_anonymous!
*hughug* I hope you had a wonderful day! ^_^♥

I had my (early) birthday party yesterday, and it was so much fun! ^_^ It was the first time that I actually had a party at my apartment (gotta test the limits at one point, right? XD), and it worked out just fine. Looks like I can keep having parties here... *GRINS*.

There was lots of good food, tea, punch, and presents, much love and attention and even a bit of sunshine, so a perfect afternoon if you ask me. ^________^

I even managed to get my apartment ready with all the new stuff I bought/made (courtesy of not much sleep and neglecting school last week. *cough*), which made the day even more perfect. *smile*

Right now, a friend from Japan is visiting and we went up into the mountains today, enjoying the sun and the snow and the absolutely wonderful scenery.

The only thing that's missing now is spring. I'm sick of the cold. I want spring. NOW! With flowers and birds chirping and lots of warmth and sunshine. Please?
haraamis: (VK - Kaname)
... in which I realize that it's been way too long since the last entry. again. *sweatdrop*

clicky click for a bunch of bullet points )
Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Happy Holidays!

Friday, 26 December 2008 10:50 pm
haraamis: (H/D - Mistletoe)
I hope that all of you who celebrate it had wonderful holidays! ♥♥

I got home tonight from spending the last couple of (great!) days with my family and the boy and his family, and was greeted with a bunch of mail in my mailbox. ^_^

So, first of all, a huge thank you for absolutely lovely Christmas cards to: [livejournal.com profile] okaasan59, [livejournal.com profile] meritjubet, [livejournal.com profile] btamamura, [livejournal.com profile] damoyre, [livejournal.com profile] whimsy_chan, and [livejournal.com profile] just_ruth!

[livejournal.com profile] damoyre, thank you so much for the additional postcard *beams*. I've actually been to Philadelphia, though it was before I joined lj or I would have let you know. ^_~ I'll just have to go back one day, I guess.
[livejournal.com profile] gwy, thankyouthankyouthankyou for the beautiful earrings *glomps and smooches* I totally love them and I think I'm gonna wear them tomorrow night. ^_~

Tomorrow is gonna be insanely busy with preparations for our trip to Helsinki as we're leaving on Sunday around noon. There are still a couple of things I need to buy and stuff to take care of before I leave... *busy busy bee* and then there shall be packing, of course. *sigh* I hate packing.
And tomorrow night I'm gonna go out dancing with [livejournal.com profile] belina and a couple of friends. ^___^ no chance of getting bored, you see.

Anyway, I'm not sure if I'll manage to update before I leave, but I certainly will when I get back from Finland.

You guys take care, be good, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
haraamis: (santafied)
Oh man, it just keeps snowing and snowing and snowing... there's about a foot of snow outside my window, and it doesn't look like it's gonna stop any time soon.

White Christmas? There's hope, there's hope.... ^_____^

so, that update last night didn't happen...obviously. :P

There was so much I wanted to do last night, really, and NONE of it happened. ^^;

I came home from school, made and ate dinner, puttered around the kitchen for a bit and then decided I needed a hot bath. took said bath, put on my jammies and called the boy, as promised earlier.

Embarassingly enough, I had to cut that phonecall short after a while because I was too tired to talk which made the conversation somewhat...difficult. *sweatdrop* He just laughed and told me to go to bed. ♥

Not quite ready to give up the fight, I tried to watch one episode of Tytania, but had to quit after about 10 minutes as I nearly fell asleep with the laptop still on my bed. So I put everything away, turned off the lights and went to sleep.

That was all before 10pm.


Week from Hell is halfway done, but I've got only one final left tomorrow. I had 2 exams on Monday and one yesterday, plus a presentation last night. Everything went reasonably well, I think, so that's quite a relief.

I'm a bit afraid of the one tomorrow, though. >.<. The lady who held the course made such a mess of things, it's not even funny. No one knows what's going on, exactly, and we haven't got a book to rely on, just her script, which is made of ppt slides that show looooooooots of pictures but rarely any explanations. *SIGH*

Oh well, it will be over soon enough.


On a happier note (because, you know, despite everything - cold, finals etc - I'm still feeling happy and christmassy XD)

THANK YOU, [livejournal.com profile] merith, [livejournal.com profile] lil_1337, [livejournal.com profile] dysis, and [livejournal.com profile] gundamnook for the Christmas cards! ^____^ *snugsnug*

Also, [livejournal.com profile] nee_chan, I sent the Christmas presents for everyone to your parents' place (in one package), so please hand them out to the others when the package gets there? Also, this is A Mission! I'm not sure if it's gonna be there in time for Christmas, but I'm pretty sure it'll make it before New Years, so you are responsible that everyone gets his or her present while we still have the year 2008! :P


And since I haven't posted anything fangirlish in so long: I'm totally and utterly in love with the current Naruto opening (Closer) and the Bleach ending (Hitohira no hanabira) ♥♥♥!

I'm also very much looking forward to catching up with anime things - the only shows I'm up to date with are Skip Beat and Bleach. ^^,


Last (but not least): YULETIDE!

I'm looking for someone who would be willing to beta my yuletide fic for grammar and general formal things on the 20th. I'll probably finish it sometime late on the 19th or early 20th (my time!). Upload deadline is 9:00 pm Eastern US time, so it would have to be before that. ^^;
Volunteers? Please?

haraamis: (flail)
... I just handed in the application for my masters thesis. o.O;; seems like this is getting real.

also, final #3 in half an hour. *flail*

and I've got a nasty cold. -.-"

hellllloooo, life. :P

update later tonight, I think, when the worst is over...
haraamis: (Contura 08)
Er... a warning in advance... upon reading what I wrote, I've realized that some of it might sound quite random and disjointed. Feel free to either skip or ask as many questions as you want. ^^; Not sure what's going on in my brain there.


So, I'm back, have been for a couple of days, actually. I've been sneaking around lj here and there, but I haven't really felt like posting. To be honest, I'm still not sure if I feel up to it. I haven't been online much in general, but I also think this break away from the computer was really good for me. Sometimes I feel as I'm missing out on life, spending too much time online. At the moment, all I wanna do is spending time outside or putter around the apartment, do crafty things, cook and bake, visit with my parents and friends, or just watch movies or anime without having to do something (and, of course, there's still the evil papers I need to finish >.<.).
It's not that I don't love and miss people online, on the contrary. And I'm sure that you know that. Right? ^^; I'm just not sure if I don't need to set priorities differently for a while. I'm not gonna disappear. I'm not going on hiatus. And maybe I'll change my mind as soon as the camp euphoria has worn off a bit more. Who knows? I'll probably be around a lot more again once winter keeps me inside again. And as I said, I'm still here. Maybe just not quite as much. Anyway, enough of the emo and on to the facts.... or something like that.

Camp has been an amazing experience - one of the best I've ever had, I think, and I've been to a lot of camps - but I don't think it's possible to convey with words all the feelings that go along with it. I'll give it a try, though. For those of you who got a postcard from me, some of the following might sound familiar... ^_~

I'm gonna do bullet points, because there is really no other decent way to do this... )


Also, tomorrow afternoon, [livejournal.com profile] nereidaia is arriving from Germany and she's gonna stay for about 10 days. ^__________^
haraamis: (twitch)
Dear (beloved, though not so much right now) Body of mine,

I would like to inform you that this not the right time to show weakness. I thought we were clear on the fact that a cold such as the one you are developping since yesterday does not fit The Schedule.
Papers have to be written, work has to be done, and the scout camp needs to be prepared. We do not have time to feel crappy. So, please to be returning back to normal ASAP.

Sincerely yours, with no love but much sniffling

haraamis: (Contura 08)
So. I'm still not done with the damn paper. *cough*

But. I'm at work at the moment, waiting for my boss to send me something I know he's working on, so I thought I'd use the time to write something about the big scout camp I'm attending in less than 2 weeks BECAUSE I'M ALL EXCITED ABOUT IT NOW. I might have mentioned it to a few people, but I don't think I've talked about it here.

there be a lengthy explanation for my excitement and stuff about the camp under the cut )

Anyway, that's my current light in the dreariness of writing papers and working full time. ^_^♥


Tuesday, 1 July 2008 06:03 pm
haraamis: (Broken)
All I wrote last night on my paper... is gone.

I have no idea why. I turned off the computer this morning before I went to work. Nothing out of the ordinary happened. It didn't freeze, it didn't crash, it didn't ask me if I wanted to save....

And now it's just not there anymore.

I think I'm gonna cry.

[Edit] OMG, I'm so lucky! I just remembered that I sent myself an email to my work-addy last night before I went to bed, so I could write on the paper if I had some spare time at work today.... and that email's got the full version attached to it! ^___^

I still don't know what the hell happened to the version on my computer, but hey, I'm not about to complain now.
haraamis: (lifestyle)
5.45 am, my stereo system goes on with music I know will make me happy. I turn around, sleepily, basking in the knowledge that I don't have to get up just yet. It's already light outside and you can hear a bird's voice now and then. Other than that it's pretty quiet because it's Saturday.

I spend the next 45 minutes dozing lightly, snuggled under my covers because the window is open and the air washing is cool and fresh, the music a soft background noise.

6.30 - I roll over and get my laptop so I can check email, torrents, and lj. At 5 to 7 I decide I'm up for a run, so I get up and ready. I leave the house at 10 past 7. It's still nice and cool outside, but warm enough for shorts and sleeveless shirt. The sky is a happy summer blue, and the sun paints patterns on houses and streets, wherever it can reach. I have to go back inside once more because I forgot my sunglasses, but then I'm ready and off I go through the streets past apartment buildings and sweet little houses with deep green gardens, along fields, through a little forrest and a park, and then back. On the way I pass a little bakery that's already open, with a couple of tables outside, and I think that one morning I should go have breakfast there. I have to laugh to myself when I come by a middle aged lady in a morning robe, who's walking around her garden, bending down a couple of times to talk to her plants (seriously! XD). And above all I'm enjoying the sun and the crisp air that smells wonderfully like morning.

I get back home about 35 minutes later, ready for a shower (because ew, sweaty!). I shower, get dressed, and write this entry. And now I'm hungry and going to make breakfast. ^_^

*sigh* now I just wish I could spend the rest of the day in the same manner, but I've got a paper to write. Ugh. Evil, evil, EVIL.
