i owe you the story of my move but it’s 4 am and i am too tired for that. i’m at my moms now for the next 3 weeks until i start the new chapter in my life.
i just woke up and had to go potty. on the way back to bed i realized i was wide awake AND hungry (tummy churning big time) so i took a detour to the kitchen. how i can be hungry after having had a huge carb-filled dinner is beyond me but i guess my body knows what it wants.
in this case it’s potato salad at 4 am. i try to ignore the fact that i am supersore and i don’t even want to think of tomorrow or the day after (aka the aftermath of moving doom). right now it’s just me and my bowl of food. what a great way to start a saturday.

last year i went to sushi university and learned how to make sushi. since then i’ve tried to pass on the newly found knowledge because making your own sushi is SO MUCH FUN!
tonight i had my friend A over and she brought blueberries. don’t ask why, i think there’s a weird addiction going on. anyways, we had the blueberries and needed to do something with them. so we decided to make a blueberry sushi roll - with a nori leave, rice, cream cheese, and blueberries. i was sceptic, i admit it. but boy was i wrong! these blueberry sushi rolls were yummy! it’s got more of a dessert-y touch but together with other berries, like raspberries or strawberries, i can imagine to have this berry sushi in the spring or summer time. just for fun. if you make your own sushi at home give this one a try! nothing to combine with wasabi or soy sauce though. that just won’t work.
what’s next on my sushi list? i finally want to tackle those inside out rolls. they are a little bit more tricky to make which is why i’ve skipped them so far. i make sushi when i’m hungry and when i’m hungry i’m in no mood for experiments.

…really, where have i been these past two weeks? i did not travel the world, i didn’t go anywhere and still did not blog.
i even missed to share my bagel anniversary! happy 10 years of bagel-eating to me!!! i love sesame bagels though i highly dislike the seeds getting stuck in my teeth. and i love salmon cream cheese. that on top of a sesame bagel AND if i get really lucky some fresh spring onions on top??? YUM, YUM, DOUBLE YUM! i like plain cream cheese also.
but the real downside to bagels (and i found this out way too late…about 10 pounds too late) is that one bagel without any topping equals five slices of (german) bread. who in the world eats five slices??? i don’t. but do i eat a whole bagel? you bet it do! that stuff is dangerously good!
work has been crazy. we moved office today and i spent the last week packing the stuff of my colleague who was on vacation (ok, we packed 75% of it together on her last day before the vacation) and the things of a colleague who was sick. oh, and i packed my things as well. in all it was a shitload of boxes. sorry for the profanity but there is no other way to say it. there were easily more than 60 boxes of various size and weight. as we all know, i cannot lift more than 37 pounds so lots of the boxes were placed next to each other instead of on top. i am the weakest link in this office…
the movers stacked the boxes in four tiers (thank you dudes) and in the process of trying to get them down i got numerous bruises. a big one on my knee is bothering me right now and it’s turning all shades of purple blue. and did i mention it hurts? because it does! the pain i am going through for work, it’s unbelievable.
i’ve also been studying so so for the gre. actually, i was a good girl because i even took my book to the lake and studies while i tanned in the sun. how is that for ambition??? math is still a bugger. in my last test i got 8/10 of easy, 7/10 of intermediate and 5/10 of advanced questions correct. the first ones were thoughtless mistakes but i have to admit that for some of the advanced questions i had no idea what they were even trying to ask… and my friend anne didn’t know either. even when we translated the questions they did not make sense. if half of my questions are like these then i’m screwed. gotta study more and harder! people, stop distracting me! should i call in sick to have more time to study? the move is done, i did the work for everyone else, isn’t it time i consider my needs?
