My (relatively) bum days are finally over! I would call this week that passed an adjustment period and at the same time, making the most out of the free time I have. As usual, let me round up my week’s highlights.
Movie of the Week
Isch kandidiere. It was a recommendation from someone in my class and I surprisingly enjoyed watching it. Quite timely too since today (Sunday, September 24) is Germany’s national election. Here’s the trailer :
and speaking of elections…
Germany’s far right party AfD (Alternative fur Deutschland), got 13,5 percent of predicted votes… which basically translates to racism. I can’t believe we live in a world where we normalize and tolerate racism. These 13,5% never learned from the Nazis and the same way that some Filipinos never learned from Martial Law. History is being rewritten and heading to destruction.
okay happy thoughts happy thoughts
Balik-aral. I love to learn but I’m not really the studying type. Yet this is where I’m heading in my new home I call Hamburg.
Dreaming in German. Two straight weeks of dreaming in German and each time, I felt like I was watching German movies I often watch. This is, of course, a good sign of fluency (according to people and unscientific internet articles) but on the other hand, the language is following me even in my sleep!! I have to work a lot on my communication skills and I look forward to speaking the language without hesitation and fumbling through my vocabulary.
Chikas of the weeks
Kylie Jenner is pregnant! Popoy found her Basha-g!! Why am I shouting?!!
Most Productive Day
Friday. No, I didn’t have a Friday-night-out but I stayed in (as always) and fixed important documents. I also applied to five-six different jobs, printed materials for our children’s church and edited a video for my brother’s girlfriend. Yes, all in one whole day!
The *2nd-cheesiest video I’ve ever edited
It’s a given that I’m the go-to person when someone in the family needs a video presentation or photoshop problems or general computer questions etc etc. My brother asked me to make a video for his gf’s birthday last Friday and worked with some of the photos/videos he gave me. It was honestly a cringey process since that’s my Kuya!!! Haha. I was just laughing in between. The photo above is a screenshot since that’s invasion of privacy but believe me when I tell you, it’s hella cheese.
*The cheesiest video I’ve ever edited was the one I made for my ex ten thousand years ago (jk in highschool) and I used Windows Movie Maker with Daniel Bedingfield’s If you’re not the one as the background.
Kilig of the week
I watched this proposal video today before I went to church and wow! This is really the goal. Someday, I’m gonna find someone who loves God first and we’re gonna honor Him together. It has always been a part of my non-negotiables but being single for quite a longggg time makes you think of changing some just to accommodate what’s available. Hahaha but I thank God for convicting me every time and telling me to wait. If this happened to her, it’s gonna happen to me. Besides, who’s in a hurry? #grabstissueandcry #ikidddd
Why am I suddenly getting so emotional? Okay back to highlights
Most relaxed day
Saturday. The German family I babysit for is on a vacation which means, I finally have a free Saturday!! I went to hang out with my friend Abbie, went grocery shopping, prepared materials for the kids’ church, and sang songs from the 90s. It was a fun, chill day.
1st Highlight of the Week
My university’s orientation week. Check out my previous posts. 😉
2nd Highlight of the Week
Children’s Church and Church’s Potluck. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to serve Him through my new home church! The years I spent serving for the toddler’s ministry back in the Philippines make so much sense now that I’m helping out with the children’s liturgy. Our church also had this annual potluck event and the turnout was really great! Blessed to have fruitful fellowships over the years.
3rd Highlight of the Week
As I’ve said, I had a very productive Friday. I was finally able to finish editing my two months delayed video from July aka Coldplay concert. I actually started editing it last month and left it hanging. I was in the work-mood so I breezed through the editing process, and here it is! Enjoy the short video.
What I’m looking forward to this coming week
PHOENIX CONCERT! My voice is ready.
I’m gonna go back now to listening to the news… or watching a something on Netflix. Let’s see. Till next Sunday!
