Pokemon Go!

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

You must of heard about the hype called Pokemon Go. A game using GPS to track where you go and on the way you can find creatures named pokemons or stop by pokestops or gyms. Essentialy a game for evry passionate collector with a physical exercise feature. ( You can't just drive in your car because the app will notice your going to fast, humanly possible.)

My dog and I love this game. My dog loves the new place we walk to and the distances we go and this app is my exercise recently. However walking 50km extra isn't so bad. I have meant so many new people and talked to other players on the street. being competative at times is taken very light hearted in my area. Being level 13 and catched 300 pokemon isn't too impressive however it is a lot of fun. The app is new so it has a lot of bugs but I enjoy it nevertheless.

For the next update I hope that you can communicate in some way with the other players, not via chat (this could cause bullying etc.) but maybe training against each other for example. I hope that when you send a away a pokemone that you wouldget stardust and a candy. other then bug fixes the only other thing I would like is a better orientation on where pokemons nearby are.

Do you love this game too ?

See you next week. Bis nächste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana

Hello. Hallo. Hola 

The 10 of July and I have exactly 15 day until the end of my semster. Next week being the deadline for composition and nude drawing and have 2 weeks to print off my main semster project. 

Beginning my semster we weren't introduce to each other we had to find us. Now we know each other and have a active group where wee stress one day befor deadlines that we havn't finished the work.

Beginning the semster I didn't know how expensive it could be to have to buy arts and craft materials. Now I have job to come up with the expenses. 

Beginning the semster we didn't know how the teacher are. Now We have the generel jist of how each one thinks. 

Beginning the semster we were quite happy that we don't have to write exams in the first semster. Now we are interested to see how that will change in the second semster. 

Beginning the semster we had no real work to show for and now we do.

What is a cash Register ?

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

I had a practice job day at a supermarket. As i was looking for a job this was a way to test if i like thet job and to learn what to do. The first day the stuck me behind the cash register. On the first day I wasn't expecting that.

First of all I stoid behind my mentor and watched. After the first rush was iver she explained the basics and I got to give it a go.

1. Say Hallo
2. That the items and scan the products.
3. If the items don,t habe a barcode type in the unique number
4. Say the total
5. Ask for the payback card
6. Give in the total total that the custimer gives you
7.1. If you get cash. Give back the change while saying how much.
7.2. If you get a card the customer will have to type in their pin or sign.
8. Say bye

Simple steps. Now do it ten rimes fast and under pressure. Living in a village you will come by many people you know. On my first day I had 2 parents, a brothers friend, a neighbor, a teacher, my driving instructor and a friend of a friends. I guess that a given.

However I never knew how many people go shopping between 1 and 5 on a monday. I would assume everyone works then but no. Apparently not.

On that day I riped my jeans on the caser door. Broke the cashier buttons and had one customer who give to little money and "ran" away. She was in a real rush.

I had fun and I got the job in the end as well. Starting tuesday I will be making money. Woo.

Do you have first day stories?

See you next week. Bis nächste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana.

The job update

Hello. Hallo .  Hola.

Looking for a job that I could do aside of studying was the topic of the last few months for me. Finding something flexibel and enjoyable was as important as learning new skills and earning an adaqute amount of money

I had gotten some rejctions before being offered a practice job, this being afew days to see if one fits in the team and enjoys the work.Then Iwas asked a question. Do I want a 450€ job or a part time job.Welll I didn't know the diffence.

I did my research

450€ job - max. 20 weekly hours (Around 10- 15 hours) , with an earning limit of 450€ , without tax and you can be relised from paying to the retirement insurence

Part time - wanted: at least  20  hours weekly .  Earning limit 800€ Ffrom which taxs will be taken off and payments to the retirement insurence .  Here the problmatic being that I can lose student status , child money and get kick out of the family insurence .

I would prefer first offer even though I can't earn over 450. Let's see if  I fit in and get the job

See you next week. Bis naechste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana.

Central Intelligence

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

Firstly I liked to apologise for not blog very frequently rencently. I am not going to make excuses I have just haven't been home very often and my boyfriend doesn't have Wifi in his room at the moment.

Yesterday I went to the cinema and watched Central Intelligence. SPOILER ALERT!!

Bob Stone (The Rock) was bullied in school and after a horrific event he stopped going to school. At this event "the golden jet"/Calvin, who is a very popular kid at school, hels Bob out. 20 years later the two men met again and Bob turns Calvins world upside down.

This film is total comedy. It not very mentally challenging and you can guess the out come. However it is a lightheart film with some laugh out loud moments. It has what I call dumb humor.

The little Easter Egg in there is the reference to a picture of the rock with a belly bag which in this fil he cherishes dearly. The trailer doesn't give away all the funny parts of the film which I was concerned about at the beginning.

This film was quite good but not the best film I've seen. I'd give it a 6/10

See you next week. Bis nächste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana.

Love the same again

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

I love Spanish and as I was in Spain I wanted to continue learning when I came back home. In reality this didn't work out so well when I started studying. Not the way I imagined.

The first few weeks I did reading writing and listening exercises everyday. I found a fun trivia game that I can play in Spanish and tht work out well for the beginning. It started beccoming less and less. Until this day I still play the game everyday. I also wanted to meet spanish speaking people to continue my speaking however the plans never came to being because of this or that excuse.

As I started studying it became even less. I was recently thinking about finding a job and deciding if I wanted to do a work experience in a company in my holidays. This turned into a daydream how after my studies it would be amazing to work a year abroad. Spain being a place where I would have to speak the anguage daily and freshen it up a bit.

So I started reading and listening exercises again. Writing this blog should remind me that I LOVE Spanish and for a long time I wanted to learn it. Which I wouldn't do if I don't try. I should at least get good enough to start listening to audio books in the car for example.

I just need to keep my goals in sight to reach them

Do you have goal you want to reach which keeps getting put off ?
