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 ?
