Getting back in the swing of things

Hello. Hallo. Hola

Is it as freezing where you live as here.. brrrr.

When I was 13 I wish for a camcorder for my birthday. I got one and starting making silly little videos for Youtube. It was so fun only thing I didn't like was that I was so bad in editing but I enjoyed it. I would of proberly kept doing but it died down for various reasons.

I had a segment with my friend after I while she decide to quit. Telling me she had no time. Looking back I guess the people at school were getting to her.

No one told me if I kept doing to I would eventually get better.

My neighbor was in some of the videos, going to the same school he started getting bullied by his "friends". He begged me to take down the video or put it on private. I remember that being super hard for me because it was one of the "good" videos on my channel.

After stopping completely I eventually put all the video on private because for a 15 year so videos when you were 13 are super cringe.

For years now I have been joking with my friend that I would start a Channel again, when I had a concept, when I had more time when I had (insert excuse here).

This week I sat down, planned and filmed a video and just started editing it. I don't know if it will ever be the begin of a new channel but the process was fun abd I really enjoyed it.

Don't forget yur past it may be part of your furture.

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

GoT books vs. The series

Hello. Hallo. Hola

How you guys doing? Do you like reading, I do.

Recently my boyfriend started reading the Game of thrones saga eventhough we had already watch the series. At first I thought that it must be boring that way.

One day I caved at started the first book. 545 pages and I was eating it up. The story was as intriguing as the series at the producers literally took chunk of the book and created into the series. I was fasinated how well they had done with this development.

So I recommend that if you like the GoT series to read the books. In the book the points of view chabge between the characters. eg. chapter 1 Jon . 2 Eddard etc.

I don't really like knighty stories but GoT is so exciting that I can't get enough of it.

Have I peeked your interest ?

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

Does my uni suck ?

Hello. Hallo. Hola

As you know I study in Frankfurt and it is what I want to do. Discussing this topic with others i have found out that my uni has it's problems. Recently I have been considering a uni change. 

Firstly I WILL  study until I have my Exam for the main studies. After that I have a few options

1. Continue as is, realising that my uni will offer more after the 3rd semster
2. Change my school if I can continue for the 3rd semster onwards
3. Look for a job in my area and learn the craft in practice

The first option obviously depends on my uni. At the moment we don't have a computer coarse only a basic coarse taught by a student doing a work experience. I don't know what branch I want to go into yet but I would want to improve my skills in the techinal part. I could take a coarse away from the uni but I am paying a lot of money as is. 

The second option is more diffucult because there are no schools for my needs that aren't more expensive or just plan bad as I have already visited them before starting. 

The third option would be my go to option if my uni's generel offer doesn't improve in the specilised semster. Allowing me to get practical experience. This having the standard trouble of finding a job that will empoly a "unexperienced" girl. 

However until the time comes I have a lot of time to decide 

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

The day off

Hello. Hallo. Hola

Everyone needs some time off. The problem is not everyone has the time. As you know I have been work all summer.

Origianlly the plan was to go to Oktoberfest for one day. Looking into this, turned out the whole thing was more diffucult the I thought. The cheap bus ride were at the most awful times. So my boyfriend and I decided we would go next year and go to my grandparents house instead.

They live 2 hours away so I don't see them that often.

We drove there with a funny audiobook. As we got there we decide to go to a resturant with my grandparents have a lovely meal. Straight after we went to a wildpark, which is like a zoo however you can feed and stroke some of the animals plus they are more regional animals to see.

Before going to dinner we went home relaxed with my grandparents, decide to go watch a film and went to town for dinner and a movie. It was a fantastic day.

This proved to me, a day off doesn't have to be far away or expensive it can be as simple as visiting family. It makes them happy and it makes you happy what more can you want?

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

I'm Back!!

Hello. Hallo. Hola

It's Oktober and I am back with stories of my work, studies and life.

I have been working 3 months at the till now and have experienced a lot of interesting characters. But thats a subject for another post. Today I will tell you how I would would treat customers if I mirrored their behavoir.

The Wall

Some Customers will ignore me completely. Part of my job is to say hallo, work speedily, say the total, ask for a payback card, ask if they want a receipt and wish them a nice day. This would go like this:

Me: Hallo
*scan iteams
Customer: *says nothing
Me: That would be .... euros please. Do you have a payback card ?
Customer: *a nod/shake of the head/ignore
Me: Your change of ... euros. Would you like a receipt?
Customer: *a nod/shake of the head/ignore
Me: Have a nice day
Customer: *leaves

(really love these customers)

The Stripper Tipper

Some seem it to be aceptable to throw money at me. If I did that:

Me: *throws back change (which usally consists of coins) 3:)

The Runner

People will put their items on the till wait until I start scanning then go back to the aisle. The thing is I CAN NOT serve others before they haven't paid. So now I'm waiting. Other Customers are waiting. If I did that:

Customer: *puts items on the till
Me: *scan one item (now they can't leave or use a different till, basically stealing if the left.) and leave

You do not understand how many people do this. Someone did this and was gone for 15 minutes + because of one package of meat that wasn't 1.99 but 3.69. Yes there were customers behind him befor he left. Others had to take all their items off the till and go to another.
