Today, something hilariously strange happened, while I was working at the coffeeshop:
The customer, a woman in her 40s, wanted a Café Latte. I told her, that it costs 1,80€ and waited for her to pay. She gave me 1,70€ and…a TOOTH! This really happened!
My mind tried to process this situation. I was confused and wanted to laugh at the same time! And I only thought…why the hell would someone pay with a tooth!? I thought maybe it wasn’t her intention, maybe her eyes are bad or something like that…
So I told her, that she gave me a tooth and that I need 10 cent from her.
She only looked at me with wide open eyes and just said: I know.
I have a job!
That means, next to my study I work at a coffee shop.
I’m pretty happy about it. :)
Oh and also: I have a blog. Don’t know why, but I kind of like the idea to have a blog. I’m thinking about only uploading my original artwork, ‘cause I feel like tumblr just appreciates fanart.
I want to have this blog as a motivation for myself to draw more not-fanart related things and to develop my drawing style.
That doesn’t mean that I will stop drawing Fanart. NO WAY!
Just sayin’ - I kind of want to seperate my art.
Tumblr is for Fanart. This Blog is for Original Artwork. Mostly.
So, if anyone is interested in…I don’t know - following me? I’m still figuring out how this blog works… Just, take a look or something! ;D

Thanks for reading this.
Have a lovely morning/day/evening/night…or whatsoever!
I feel so awfully mainstream to have a brand new twitter account to stalk celebreties.
But seriously, i can hear the tune of “Once Upon A Time In The West” while scrolling through my own profile and my non existent tweets.
Wondering when a tuft of grass will come in sight and knock me over while a tiny cricket will accompany the silence with its chirping.
Well, silence is golden, so they say…
Where’s the summer? There is no sun, no warmth…only clouds and water en masse!
And it’s so dark and really kind of depressing.
So anyway, a few weeks ago I was at the Hamburg Airport! :)
It was a rainy day, too, but I made a few pictures with my iPod, when the sun came out and I want to share them with you, because I was sooo stunned by the beauty of nature and really you have to see this:
Isn’t that gorgeous? You should have seen it with your own eyes!
I was simply standing there with my mouth open for - I don’t even know - how long…
Now, that I’m out of school and waiting for the beginning of my study (which starts in October), I have much time to practice my art skills and this really makes me happy. :)
I am so, so, so, so, so, so happy right now!!!
God, it feels so good! I’m finally done with school! Now, I can look forward to the date where I get my Abitur certificate and than I’m free. Free. FREE!!!
And what really feels awesome is the fact that there is no stress for me in the near future and I can completely concentrate on my drawings and be creative without a burden on my shoulder! :’)
I’m planning also to paint and to set up my room and it’s so brilliant that I have enough time to do all that, because my study begins in October!
When I got home earlier, I cleaned my room and especially my desk. I threw nearly all of my booklets from school away and I am not done yet!
But right now I feel really tired and exhausted.
I think I will continue my cleaning tomorrow. :)
I wish you all a good day (or what remains from it) and a good night! :D
Oh. Oh! OH!!! I forgot something! :D My parents bought me the Second Season of Sherlock!!!! Isn’t that brilliant?? With this, my day is truly complete!!! <3
Okay, I will be lying in my bed, then. ;) Bye bye! :-*
The translator says “mündliche Prüfung” is called “oral exam”. Sounds weird. Is that right?
Well, I must hold a lecture in front of 3 examiners. My presentation is about the comparison between a book called “Der falsche Inder” (The wrong Indian) and the movie “Catch me if you can”. I have to talk 15 minutes and after that they will ask questions, also 15 minutes.
I am terrified and bloody nervous!!!
I already passed my written Abitur exam and have enough points so that I will get my certificate anyway, but I can improve my grades even more when I do this presentation. I have to do it anyway, but it is on me how much effort I am willing to put into my work. I started to learn and to prepare myself for this 2 weeks ago and I can’t even sleep anymore. My mind goes just round and round and all I can think of is this stupid exam!!!
So at the moment I am a little bit exhausted. Exhausted of thinking.
God, I look forward to the 15th of June. That’s the date where I get my Abitur certificate and it is the last day of school. It’s my school degree. And with this in the back of my mind, I feel like I have enough strength to get through these coming days…
By the way…just read the German newspaper “MOPO” and look who is on the last (why the last?????) page: Benedict Cumberbatch! Aww. It says he has been voted the sexiest man on earth. Cutie-pie… <3
I’m pretty happy since yesterday! :D
The reason is the following: Yesterday I went to an art university to present myself and my portfolio to the headmaster of this school.
And guess what? After seeing my portfolio and talking to me, he told me immediately that he wants to give me a place to study at their university, because he’s convinced about my talent! He was so enthusiastic about my art and he said so many nice things to me.
He also said that he loves that I’m not drawing in Manga style. (Well okay…? Personally I don’t have something against Manga, but I grew up with Disney. And Disney was always an inspiring example, or else, a role model for me. And with this as an example, I figuered out my own style. Which is something between realistic, Disney and Comic style. Well, I would define it that way…)
Oh, I wish I could show you some things from my portfolio, but I would have to scan and revise everything. And my scanner can only scan in A4 format and many of my drawings are bigger than A4. Well, we’ll see.
By the way, the day before yesterday I drawed something Sherlock related. So those of you - who have read my whole blah anyway and is now reading this - who likes Sherlock, be prepared! I will upload it soon. :)
While you’re waiting, here’s a picture of hot coffee/tea:
So today, Mesdames et Messieurs, I got the notification that I PASSED my written ABITUR exam! This means I’m authorized to enter the last examination, which will be a presentation and when I’m finish I have my Abitur certificate and I don’t have to go to school anymore! Isn’t that brilliant? I’m so happy and excited!!!
Abitur isn’t known in the English language, right? So my translator gave me this as a translation: Abitur means graduation from high school. So there you go… :D Now it’s time for me to celebrate myself with a nice hot cup of tea. ;)
