The Sonic Screwdriver

After it was „Bank Holiday“ and I had one day off I had to work again on tuesday (the 30th). At work I installed Windows 10 on a laptop and finally encoded it with the help of the safety-tool „BitLocker“. Of course, the 3D printer was in use again. I printed a screwdriver, a sonic-screwdriver! And what does a sonic-screwdriver do? Exactly, it sonicscrew drives. Well… in german it sounds funnier. To paint our printed objects, Konrad and I put some money together and bought some spray cans. I lacquered my sonic-screwdriver and I must say it looks really great!

After work Konrad and I realised that we forgot our food, as before which we bought in the break for the evening and therefore we had to buy something new. This time we ate chicken cutlet with sauce and rice and I drank a german beer to that. I was wondering why the bottle was so big and then I saw it was a six hundred and sixty millilitre one. I also noticed that my beer i not imported? It was brewed in the UK! Scam!

What Belfast’s residents eat

This topic (refer to the title) was requested by my dad and I honestly have no idea what to tell you about it. I see and walk by a lot of people eating many different things. But I can’t tell whether they are real Belfastians (let’s use that term from now on). They could be tourists. I had lunch with a couple of co-workers a week ago, only one of them was a true Belfastian. He ate pizza. Adding someone to the sample: An Irish colleague in the bureau – desk facing towards me – always has some snacks stored on his table. What I see there right now is a half of a dark (70% cacao) chocolate bar, a banana, an orange and some package on which „organic“ is written on. Mysterious. Oh, and of course there is tea. Tea is probably the common ground for all Belfastians.

Rainy Days

So after I was in the hills on Friday the weather was so rainy and much colder than the other days I just spend most of the weekend at home. I facetimed my friends and talked to them, they kept told me what I am missing and what happened in the past 3 weeks in there live, although we are texting on the daily basis. Apparently the weather in Berlin is very nice by the time now and we having a lot of rain right now here in Belfast. Some of my friends in Berlin were in there Pool outside maybe because it’s like over 30° there. I would rather have that good weather right now in Belfast than 14° and the whole day it’s raining. Normally at this time in year my friends and I play basketball outside and listening to music. My friends sending me pictures of their BBQ and Basketball sessions. I know when I am back the first things I do is playing Ball and doing a BBQ with my friends and enjoy the sun. My friends and I stay connected over the whole time here in Belfast which is really good.
