People, work is taking its toll. After almost five weeks I can feel that working so much is driving me crazy. The last couple of days were full of stress and emotional ups and downs and eventually yesterday it happened: my keys were gone.
I came home from work, stood in front of the house door and my keys were gone. Nowhere to be found. I was close to tears because it had been a really crappy day already - but the missing keys were the icing on top!
I rang my neighbour's doorbells and someone let me in so I was at least able to enter the staircase. Lo and behold! My next door neighbour had left a note for me on the notice board: I had left my keys on my apartment door in the morning!
I'm such an idiot! Luckily she kept the keys until I came home. You can't imagine what horror scenarios of an empty apartment and all my money and stuff gone went through my head! I actually keep my money in the bank and not at home but I was panicking so whatever.
Now I've decided to go to bed earlier, get more rest and pay more attention to my physical and mental state of health until this stressful time is over. Over the last couple of weeks I've simply tried to get too much stuff done all at once. To avoid key incidents or similar catastrophes I'll write to-do lists and categorize them into different levels of importance.
Speaking of work: my internship has been awesome so far! I've optimized our company's event pages on XING (German version of LinkedIn), created posts for different event blogs, learned a lot about SEO (search engine optimization) and - drumroll - I got my own intern blog, so cool! The website will be launched next week and I'll blog about my experiences as an Online Marketing intern. Doing blogger stuff as a real job and getting paid for it is pretty much everything I was wishing for. Now I definitely know what kind of job I want for the future.
So as you can see my life has been full of positive and negative things (in turns) lately but in general I'm still doing okay enough to push on through and make the best of it until the end of September.
Nevertheless I really can't wait for October because I'll have so much more time again. I'll only work 2-3 days a week and use my spare time to spend it with family and friends to have some farewell celebrations before I hop into the plane at the end of October and leave Europe behind.
By the way the outfit is autumnal just like the weather here. I broke my shopping ban to buy this beautiful floral dress last week... I'm speechless in my own defence here, just couldn't resist the lovely print.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
