…I have my life back. At least for a few weeks.

I admit it.I might have worked a bit too much during the last few months considering the fact that my studies should be my first priority. Oh well, I guess money does rule the world. But besides working and studying I’ve managed to have a little fun as well.

We’ve also gone on a few trips. We went to check out Kassel, the hometown of one of my friends, during Christmas time. We had so much fun even though it was freezing cold and very slippery especially on the mountain. But there is nothing hot wine can’t fix 😉

I also became an aunt. My nephew and little prince Matti was born 10 days before Christmas. I was so happy when I finally could drive up north to see my family and Matti for Christmas.

I could have cuddled this smelly angel forever but duty called and I had to leave and go back to Gießen shortly after the new year had started. In January I started a second job. Not the smartest idea considering the fact that the exams and final presentations were coming closer. But hey, money!

Frankfurt

My other job is in Frankfurt so I have to use the trains to get there. And while doing that I also found out that the warning “mind the gap between platform and train” makes perfect sense and should be taken seriously. To my defense I have to say that it was very slippery (and I was in a hurry) so I slipped right into the gap with my entire right leg. I do not recommend that. It is scary and very hurtful. And time-consuming. And I am certainly not one of those people who have lotsa spare time to see doctors. Thankfully the train did not move until I was out of there but I smashed my leg and was not allowed to stress and use it so I could not work any of my jobs: bye bye money. And thanks to the pain: bye bye sleep.

I needed surgery but luckily my puppy eyes worked and I could convince the doctors to wait until after my exams. The pain faded a bit and I could attend the “it’s all over” party. Unfortunately I could not drink alcohol but I still had a good time.

Oh yeah, in between all of the above I also had to move apartments as my contract ended. But the painting and building the furniture had to wait until after the exams.

I finished everything just in time for my long-awaited surgery. I admit I was freaked out, scared and horrified and could not sleep for days. Doctors, needles and hospitals are not really my cup of tea. But the “chill pill” I had to take right before my surgery made the world pretty awesome and sparkly again and I was a bit more relaxed until they totally drugged me with the anesthesia.

time for surgery

First thing I did after I woke up again was to check if they took the right leg. They did but they bandadged the entire leg so the only thing I could see was a disgusting blood-filled tube coming out of my leg. And this is when I fell asleep again. Don’t remember the other stuff that happened that day. Except for the burning injection. Even though I have already been getting those for over a month now it still hurts and stings like a bitch.

Some of my friends came to visit me in hospital the next day. It felt so good to see someone I knew especially since my family could not be there. My friends got me a cute care package which made my eyes all teary. But after a few hours of happiness it was time for boredom, nurses and injections again.

I love my friends

Luckily, I only had to stay in hospital for a few days. Now I’m at home trying to relax and enjoying some time off-work. And next week I’m off to see my family and friends up north for a few days. Life is good…until it’s time for that stupid injection again.

or rather the golden arse?

I am working there again this summer cuz I “kinda” need money. I did not really like the job last year either but this year everything seems even worse. It is not the colleagues (most of them are actually pretty nice) but the customers who drive me crazy.

Everyone who has been to Mc Donalds knows, that there is a big amount of different meals and options you can choose from when ordering. At least that’s what I thought…

me: Hello, how can I help you

customer A: I want the meal *grumpy*

me: which one?

customer A: well, the meal!! is that so hard??? *grumpier*

me: it wouldn’t be so hard if you told me which one you want as we have quite a few options here…

Customer B has paid and everything is on her tray…

customer B: and silverware?

me: excuse me?

customer B: i need silverware. I cannot eat the burger with my hands. I’m gonna get dirty.

She was so mad and angry! If looks could kill then I would have died right after I explained her that it is a fast food restaurant and you eat burgers with your hands. I decided to give her a fork and knife we are actually just allowed to give away if somebody orders a salad…but I didn’t want that bitch to punch me in the face (cuz she looked like that)

customer C: how much is a small coke?

me: 1,10 €

customer C: ok, then I’ll have 3 hamburgers please

I actually think that one’s funny but still…?????

These are just a few examples of the things I have to cope with daily…

…and sometimes I just feel like doing that to the customers!!!

Most people are out of energy on Fridays but I am actually quite productive today.

I am already ahead of time (which usually never happens) and working on a promotion to be shot out in 2 weeks…pure awesomeness I’m telling you 🙂

Later on I’m gonna start off my well-deserved weekend with some shopping which hopefully won’t end up with an empty bank account 😉

Have a great weekend everybody!

Some of you already know what glorious job I have this summer…if not…don’t worry cuz here is a spectacular picture I took last night/this morning after my shift:

lovely eh?

I can tell you working at Mc Donalds really are no peanuts! Never would have thought that!!! And it’s unbelievable how rude customers can be sometimes! I really have a hard time not being too direct and speak my mind!!

I don’t like the job a lot but it’s nice money and who doesn’t need money? I could already book the flight to Lizzies wedding in Dallas,TX from my first salary!! I am so happy that it finally worked out!
