here's a little summary of the last few days
Thursday last week
Met Maria Jésus, who had arrived the previous day. We just went to Feuermelder to have some Cider and catch up on the things that had happened the past 2 years (since i'd visited her in Madrid...long time ago...)
Shopping with Maria. She got a leather jacket from that second hand store I love so much (cause they have kilo prices there and things are sooo cheap because of that). I tried on some jackets myself and decided to come back the following week to buy one. Didn't have much money then. Afterwards it was sightseeing, Checkpoint Charlie and Parliament, with a Latte in between. Oh, and cocktails at Mas y Mas.
Just chillin'. Ramin and Maria came over for coffee and cake, apart from that just pure laziness ;)
The first spring day this year. It was amazing, all sunny and really really warm. I went swimming and afterwards spoiled the success with a McFlurry Smarties *grins*
Incubus!!!! First time I ever saw them, and it was sooo good! It's been a while since I've been to a concert that's been THAT sold out (hardly any space to stand and dance at all) and with fans going completely nuts. The show was great, almost two hours, a long encore, little cute details on stage (like rugs, and Brandon Boyd wearing gloves with little lights in them), and perfect sound. It was fun to watch and sing along, and when they played Megalomaniac as their last song I went nuts, too ;)
It was just a nice introduction to my birthday
My birthday. My parents had sent me a ticket for Juliette & the Licks, and some money. So first thing in the morning I went back to the second hand store and bought a black leather jacket for only € 5,35.
During the day I got calls and text messages and just relaxed.
In the evening I picked up Daeva at Universal Music, and she showed my around a bit. It was really cool, but also intimdating in a way. Maybe just too cool for me ;)
Afterwards we had dinner at a Persian restaurant, and then went to Mas y Mas to have cocktails. Although my "official" b-party won't be until next week, about 10 people showed up, and I was very happy. I got presents, too. A book, voucher for a book, CDs, sweets, and a yellow rose. Oh, and an old box from Daeva and Steffi indicating that I'm sort of an old spinster now. 25 and not married... shocking! ;)
Bought cake and celebrated with my colleagues at the office. And got more presents: An IKEA voucher and a huge bunch of flowers. Even my bosses boss shook hands with me and gave me a cute little flowerpot. So now I have a very colourful "presents table" in my flat, just like when I was a child.
Next week there'll be the real party then, and I'm looking forward to it. And the week after (28th) I'll have my very last exam. Can't believe I'm looking forward to that, too :-o
