Poem

Prospective Immigrants
Please Note

Either you will
go through this door
or you will not go through.

If you go through
there is always the risk
of remembering your name.

Things look at you doubly
and you must look back
and let them happen.

If you do not go through
it is possible
to live worthily

to maintain your attitudes
to hold your position
to die bravely

but much will blind you,
much will evade you,
at what cost who knows?

The door itself
makes no promises.
It is only a door

by Adrienne Rich

My final exam

Hi, today was my final exam! It was horrible!!!
I think I have passed, but can’t be certain before the 6th of April.
Right now I am sitting at my desk at IND. I am waiting for my supervisor to come back from lunch and discuss the corrections on my thesis with me.
I wish you all a nice day and happy holidays!

Life is not always fair

HI everybody,

I just got a mail from my supervisor. And guess what happened again, lots off corrections necessary in my thesis (Studienarbeit). That means I have to work over the Easter Holidays. Life sometimes really sucks!

But the really good part for now is my girlfriend! She helps me a lot with the crazy stressed part of my life!
I am really going to miss her while I am in the US.
