Five candles I just realized that it's been more than five years since I first started my blog. Back then I mainly wrote to pass time until the sun came up because a viewing of The Ring had left me unable to go to sleep before sunrise (and even then I closed my laptop just in case some raven-haired dead girl was using the screen as a gateway to my dorm room).
I have finally gotten over the silly horror movie (and the near-extinction of VHS has helped, too) but still maintain the blog, even though the post frequency has gone down. The old adage holds true, no news are good news. My new year resolutions consist of "Drink more water" and "Sleep more". I have definitely become a happier person and who would have known 5 years ago that Copenhagen would be the place to be that person? Thanks to all who are still reading. Stay tuned, I might have an accidental spooning story in work.
Death by shopping I decided against Japan. It's just bad timing at the moment (especially as I won't have saved up enough holidays until April) and the money can also be spent in Europe as demonstrated by last weekend's trip to Berlin.
During my shopping frenzy, I managed to stab myself in the neck with a turtleneck sweater (or rather the giant price tag inside of it). This confirms again that I can turn anything into a weapon of self-destruction (among others: parked cars, beds and cans of beans). In the end I did not buy it (neck wound + turtleneck = blood infection waiting to happen) but I still took home tons of stuff and the warm afterglow of the company of friends (sorta like sunburn, just more pleasant).
