Little update

It's time for an update. I'm often too tired to post something these days. What can I say? Life is good. I really like Cologne so far and I really hope to go out tomorrow night with some people from work. Work is great. It's still hard though but I'm pretty sure everything will be very good in a few weeks. Most of the people working there are very young and haven't been there for a long time so they remember how it is starting to work there. They help me and all the other new people a lot and so I get the chance to get used to everything step by step. Really, it's very good.
What's not so good is that it's getting colder outside and we don't have heating in our flat at the moment. Nobody really seems to care but it's really bad especially in the mornings and evenings when you don't really want to go into a cold bathroom and take a shower. And I already had a winter with practically no heating last year so I'm not going to do that again. My roommate tried to call the janitor a couple of times yesterday and today but he doesn't pick up the phone. I really hope we get to talk to him tomorrow because it's supposed to get really cold over the weekend.
Also we still don't have a hoover. I'm pretty bothered because with three people living here things just get dirty and I really can't relax after work in a dirty flat. As nobody's doing anything I think I have to go and buy one although I really don't have the money lying around... Anyway, I'll have to but I'm taking all this stuff with me if I move out (hoover, all the things in the kitchen, tv) and I won't even care.
Well, beside this, life is really good and I'm pretty happy. I feel a bit lonely from time to time, because I don't really know anyone here and most evenings I spend at home on my own (my roommates aren't home a lot). But I'm sure I'll make some friends here soon and everything, I'll just have to go out and be a bit patient ;-)
That's it for now I think and now I'm going to sleep. Tomorrow I'll visit my friend Julia in Düsseldorf and I am very excited!

There they are...

... the pictures I promised. My "bed" or the place where I sleep at the moment and my bedside table (even with special effect). How do you like it? I have to hide all those wires somehow, they make it a bit messy. Oh, and I brought the DVDs into the living room to make some space for more books there ;-)

step by step

I've been pretty busy during the last days. I started work yesterday and it was really good. There are two more new people on my ward so it's not that hard for me as I'm not the only one who has to learn everything and ask for everything and stuff. Very cool now I have the weekend off and go back to work on Monday. I'm pretty excited!
At the moment I try to make my room and the whole appartment more comfortable. First of all it needs to be cleaner here. I'm really not a neat freak and stuff but it wasn't very clean when I arrived, especially the kitchen and the bathroom. There's no hoover and nothing to clean with really so I was a bit helpless. But now my roommate accepted that it's disgusting and is helping me with cleaning and wants to buy a hoover. I hope it'll work.
Today I went to the flea market and it was so much fun. It takes place every Saturday so I guess I will be there a lot. Today I bought a children's chair which is my bedside table now (just needs some color soon) and a little shelf for the kitchen. It already looks better now. I'm positive that it will be pretty cosy in here in a few weeks.
I just tried to upload some pictures of my room but it didn't work. So maybe tomorrow!

xoxo, Jenny
