My apologies for the lack of content lately, besides inflicting my musical tastes on you. My new job is going really well and my colleagues are still amazingly patient with my limited German. My understanding of German is getting quite good, but I’m pretty sure I have not said or written a grammatically correct sentence in the entire time I’ve been there. Still, I’m kicking ass at my job and have found that a) I really enjoy it and b) I’m quite good at it. Therefore, I’m quietly confident I will be kept on once my 6 months trial period (Probezeit) is up in January.
I’ve also had the good fortune in recent months to have found an awesome group of queer women who I can now call my friends and thus filling the void of knowing no queer women in Hamburg. We are a very international group spanning a considerable age range but somehow we all gel together. I’ve discovered that I can indeed dance until dawn although my recovery time is considerably longer than I expected.
I’ve had ‘fun’ dealing with tradesmen, building repairs and washing machines that decide to explode on a Saturday night. I’m back working as a sound technician for the Hamburg Players’ upcoming play “Treasure Island” and that is eating up all my spare time. I’m binge-watching my TV shows during the small amount of downtime I have available and spend my days geeking out on Twitter as well as getting stuck into some meatier topics. Seriously, if you want to know what’s going on in my life, follow me on Twitter.
Life is really good at the moment and I’m happier than I’ve been in quite some time. It’s amazing what a good job and an active social life does to your mood. I had no idea just how much my previous horror job was pulling me down, both mentally and emotionally until I no longer had to deal with it.
So, what’s going on in your life?
