Hello my dear reader!

Check out the NEW SITE!!

 A very wise man once said, there is only one thing that is everlasting and that is change, ha! Well, maybe he did not include the ‘ha’, but I will do it since it is such a good saying and has proven itself of being valid for as long as I can remember. And be honest, don’t we encounter change in every day in our lives? As an example, we learned (the hard way) that our job searching approach (we are always nice and polite) is unsuccessful, hence, we change it! And, I ask you, isn’t it so much more refreshing tending a tiny bit more towards borderline aggression? No?! Well, if not, you will change it and BINGO, here we are again: Change!

Talking of changing, if you are curious about how I changed my approach and want to read up on my drop-a-brick-experiences then check out the NEW SITE where you will find me from now on:

So, hope to see you in a click! =)

 

Hold on...

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of arguing over which one  should go and answer the doorbell, the wife gives up, quickly wraps herself up  in a towel and runs downstairs.

When she opens the door, there stands Bill the  next door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bill says, “I’ll give you $800 to  drop that towel that you have on!” Continue Reading »

Let's see what happens

There are countless ways to pick employees. Here is a revolutionary new way that ensures to pick the absolute right one:

Take the prospective employee and put him in a room with only a table and two chairs. Leave him alone for two hours, without any instruction. At the end of that time, go back and see what he is doing. Continue Reading »

Rejection

Gottcha!

Excitement brushed up to my cheeks when I opened my inbox that faithful morning and saw an e-mail from THE Company. My heart started beating and my fingers slightly trembled with joy as I touched the mouse to move the cursor over the feedback e-mail. As I clicked on the bold letters, the content of the e-mail was revealed to me like a magical secret. This must have been the exact feeling that King Arthur must have had, when he finally held Excalibur in his seeking hands.

I couldn’t believe it. Finally I would get the chance to show my true potential in a personal interview. I could finally earn the recognition I secretly longed for and do my very best for the company of my dreams. Finally, I would see a face to all the names that I got to learn about via e-mail over the last days. I was pure ecstasy. Continue Reading »

The Japanese team won by a mile. Continue Reading »

First of all, happy, happy New Year 2011 to all of you!!!

Hm … seafood!

Ah (sigh), isn’t it nice?! Champagne, family, friends, cold sea-food buffet, fireworks, old German comedy reruns (yes, there is such a thing as German comedy!), warm winter coats and New Year’s resolutions? Yes, it is this time of year that is as glamorous as fabulous. It is this magical time of year where you can wish for the things that will never come true but you are so happily naive and in ecstasy that you do not care. Now is the time to think about all these wonderful things you want to accomplish and in my case, there are plenty of things! Continue Reading »

Santa’s Bad Day

Streeeeess!!!

One particular Christmas season a long time ago, Santa was getting ready for is annual trip, but there were problems everywhere. Four of his elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her mom was coming to visit. This stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where. More stress. Then when he began to load the sleigh one of the boards cracked, and the toy bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys. So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. Continue Reading »
