Anybody home? YES.

Sorry for two months of radio silence.

I’ve been busy getting used to a full time job in which I have to concentrate a lot – during the first month I just came home and went to bed, too exhausted to survive even one full capoeira class per week. Now after a little more than two months I’m starting to build a routine of juggling work, 2-3 capoeira classes/week (one week I even made it through 4 1/2!), household chores (though I still neglect these a lot), weekly choir practise (I cut myself a lot of slack here, too), and much needed down time. We got a sofa and I enjoy just sitting and reading in peace for an hour or two instead of filling my head with random internet stuff. I’m rereading A Game of Thrones so I’ll finally be able to get to the second volume, but there are some other books I started reading as well.

Today we came back from a short trip (four nights), some first photos are up on instagram.com/starfishskies. We hiked up rock formations and down into forests, slept and read a lot, we even watched normal TV. Yesterday we spent the evening in a swimming hall where they have different fun things like a pool that leads outside where they put on fog and lights at night, and a pool with salt water where you can float, watch lights and listen to underwater music (totally my thing, so relaxing).

 

Eyes and Exciting News!

Recently I’ve been asked again about my eyes, whether I have two different colours or what.
The short answer: I have sectoral heterochromia in my left eye. Before I recently learnt the word I always told people it was like a small birthmark, just in the iris. So one of my eyes is completely of this weird, changing blueish-grey colour that looks different everyday, the other one has a brownish section.

I’m really excited right now – I’ll start a new job on Monday! My first real full time job! Luckily I don’t have to move to a different city. I’ll be working in a language project for an internet company. I won’t tell more because I’ll have to sign a NDA and whatever, but yeah, totally excited and a little bit scared.
