Things that I've always wanted to do #76:
Sit with a notebook and a friend in a coffee shop and share ideas over cappuccinos.
itux: I just looked out of the window and saw all the stars creating these constellations. It’s one of the most beautiful things in life. Something you need to share with someone special. :D
I hate it how 90% of the blogs written by English-speaking expats living and working in Switzerland make Switzerland sound like some crazy, backwards land that is only good for a laugh. Entries consist of photos of mountains taken while hiking/skiing, laughing about “crazy” Swiss customs, and whining about how much stuff costs here. It’s like these people don’t even enjoy...

My workplace had an incorrect phone number for me in their computer system. They’ve been trying to get a hold of me for a week to tell me that the class that I am supposed to begin teaching tomorrow, which I was all ready to do, has been cancelled.

Sometimes I wish I lived a little further on the outskirts of the city, instead of in the middle, so that I could see the stars at night. My dad taught me the constellations, and I used to look for them in the sky to help me fall alseep. Even when it’s not cloudy, I can’t do that here because of all the light pollution — right now the sky looks like a faint, pinkish-orange haze....
I finally have 100 followers
I want to say thank you to those of you who find my tumblr interesting enough to follow it! I’m really happy that I can get my voice out to so many people :) You are all the best! (also, I’m sorry for not updating in the past couple of days!)
I love it when I sneak up behind my sleeping cat, give him a big hug, and he starts purring. I guess it’s really true that everyone likes to wake up to a hug, even cats!
