Friday letters – the OMG it’s September edition!

Just how is it September already? I know I’ve said that practically every month this year, but seriously, how?! On Monday, my little brother turned 8 and it was 5 years since I started working at my current company. Five years! That’s longer than it took to complete my Bachelor’s degree! It’s also 8 years today since I moved to Germany “properly” rather than just for an exchange year (if you’re wondering how I know that so precisely, I checked the diary I kept back then ;-)). I can’t believe I’ve actually managed to stay in one place for this long without getting restless! Anyway, enough of my rambling… it’s Friday, so letters is probably what you’ve come here for. Here you are:


Dear September. I sincerely hope you pass by slower than you arrived. I’m not ready for it to officially be autumn yet! (Although according to the weather, autumn actually arrived about a month ago…)

Dear little brother. I hope you enjoyed your birthday and liked your present.

Dear German supermarkets. Displays of Lebkuchen and Spekulatius are not acceptable at this time! At least wait until the kids go back to school before you start trying to wish Christmas upon us!

Dear Taiwan. I hope I get to visit you again some day… a week just wasn’t enough time to explore! We didn’t even get to see all of what Taipei had to offer, not to mention the fact that we only made it half way down the country!

Dear bubble tea. I tried you because when in Rome (err, Taiwan) and all that, but I definitely don’t need to experience you again. So weird!

Dear work printer. I do not appreciate your decision to eat paper rather than printing on it! Half an hour to sort out a jam was not in the plan for my first week back at work. Let’s hope our IT guy can fix it, or I’ll be running up and down stairs every time I need to print until we’re able to purchase a new one…

Dear Facebook. Has it ever occurred to you that if I upload photos in a certain order it’s because I want them to be in that order? Stop changing them around!!

Happy weekend everyone! I hope you all have a great one, and that the weather where you are is better than here! (It’s supposed to improve at some point… I’ll believe it when it happens!)

Friday letters: bye bye March

This is the last Friday in March. Monday is the 31st and on Tuesday we enter April. The thought that the year is already a whole three months old makes me want to cry… how could I have done so little in three entire months?! Not cool! Oh well, at least I have a few things planned for this weekend. In the meantime, have some letters….


Dear Spring.  According to the weather forecast, you are set to return. Please hang around this time… I don’t want to have to wear my winter coat all through April again!

Dear scales. Since I had to move you to hoover, I can no longer trust anything you say. Curse you, uneven floors! How am I supposed to track my progress now? *sobs*

Dear boyfriend. I will probably be out when you get back from Turkey on Saturday night, but I’m looking forward to spending some time with you on Sunday!

Dear mam. Your Mother’s Day card will be late because I’m an idiot and didn’t leave myself enough time to stitch it and get it posted in time, but I hope you like it anyway (once it arrives…)

Dear Green Day. I read yesterday that your American Idiot album will be ten years old later this year. How is that possible?! I’m sure I only received it as a gift a year or two ago… (and yes, I was given it the year it came out).

Dear Easter. Why are you so late this year? I want my long weekend already!

That’s all from me for today. Happy Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

*Note: I am entering this post for Kate’s Daily Diaries linkup. Technically, the idea is to write a post about what’s been going on with you over the past week, which I haven’t really done here, but if you read between the lines it sort of is about what’s happening right now soooo into the linkup it goes.
