February is over and it went by way too quickly. I feel like nowadays (I know I sound like a granny) time passes so fast, you just want to desperately grasp it and enjoy the moment as long as you can. I can’t believe that I’m in Munich for four months, already – it still feels like my first week here! But maybe that’s due to the fact, that I was busy 24/7, which brings me to a new category here on my blog. What do you think about monthly look backs? I love to read them and was inspired by Sunglasses and Peonie’s “Let’s Look Back” and Miss Getaway’s “Love List” to write down my own experiences each month! I hope you’re going to enjoy this.
My internship started in February, so that was when I took the big step and moved to Munich for a total of six months! Luckily, I didn’t move alone because my boyfriend got an internship in Munich as well. What can I say apart from how happy I am that I took this step. Now, I know that my decision to study Media and Communications was the right one and that I definitely want to work in this field. The internship is great so far – really nice people, amazing colleagues, and so many new things to experience.
Back to Munich – I finally feel home now. In the beginning it was a huge difference for me to live in such big city, share a flat with my boyfriend and live a full-on adult life. Let me tell you something: It is a lot harder to get Wi-Fi in your flat than you might think. So, I had to endure a few weeks of digital detox, which was so hard but also (kind of) good because I noticed that I’m a total phone addict. I mean, I was in a constant state of stress and anxiety just because the thought of not being available and maybe missing a few WhatsApp texts always was in the back of my mind. But hey, thanks to that involuntary digital detox I am a reasonably normal person now who can handle missing a few WhatsApp texts – so that’s good.
Short Trips and Visits
Another good thing that happened in February was my short trip to Innsbruck! I’ve wanted to visit this city for such a long time now and I am so glad I finally did it. This city is beautiful! But you can read everything in detail here.
Last but not least, a friend of mine came to visit me! We had the best weekend full of much needed girl talk, venturing around Munich, taking pictures (of course) and a going out fail, which might have to do with me drinking too much wine. Oops.
What I listened to?
I pretty much only listened to Ed Sheeran’s new songs, Martin Garrix ft. Dua Lipa ‘Scared to be Lonely’, Kygo’s new song with Selena Gomez, rap and a few Justin Bieber songs here and there. I think that’s a good mixture of everything, isn’t it? I also caught myself listening to One Direction’s first album ‘Up All Night’ (Guilty pleasures, anyone?), which made me reminisce about good ol’ times where everything was better and I was a hardcore 1D fan.
What I read?
Since I couldn’t use neither my phone, nor my laptop I had to stick to books. So I literally read four books in two weeks because I didn’t have anything better to do after work (yes, I’m a granny).
