It's still all about my thesis..

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 08.29

I am still on and about writing my seminar paper, there is simply no end in sight. But I finally managed to compose a really good introduction.... cough cough.... I really like it!
Ramazan is over today, so we are all over happy, and my Lurve's Mommy surprised me in such a lovely way- she got me a present! I was really speechless and kept hugging her for three times at least! Than we had such a laugh about Seid's bro, when we were buying Kebab. The guy in the Kebaberia got a phone call from Seid's bro, who wanted to tell us, to bring him also one. Imagine, instead of calling on our cells... ha ha.. I couldn't manage- I was laughing for 10 minutes.
Of course it is again darn cold, raining and grey- autumn has arrived within it's full strength-I feel totally unmotivated! I just wanna cuddle and sleep! Anyways, I am off to wake up my Heart, otherwise he's up to a 12 h sleep again.

A tres bientot!

P.S Evelyne - Bonne anniversaire!

Best weekend for sure y'all!!! There is nothing better than a derby between AC Milan (the great and best club ever) versus the rednecks from Internazionale. Nothing better, espacially when we win it. And so it happened yesterday, when Ronnie (Ronaldinho Gaucho) scored after a great assist from Kaka. It was a fierce game, and we knew better ( than Mourinho- the coach of the bastards Inter). Sheva played and so did Maldini. Fabulous! I love AC Milan!! I love them so much!
Went out to test my Hunk's new Cam ( he bought one with his bro ), and I already hate it, coz I look like a lame farmer's daughter on all pics ( I guess it is absolutely not the fault of the cam...). Apart from that, the weekend's been pretty peaceful. We tried to get further with our homeworks, and were more or less successful. At least it was a warm weekend, unlike today.
Oh I hate autumn...
My dearest Ulla had her first day at University today, and when we talked via phone, she sounded pretty excited. That was so good to hear. I am glad at least she is happy to attend school, unlike me :-).
Off to work
on my fukced up thesis,


Back in Goettingen..

I just wrote (after a month or so) my first post in Polish.
I guess my Polish ain't the best anymore.
The glorious days of it are passe.

Writing my thesis... God help me out....

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 05.26

There is nothing worse than writing a thesis about the Inquisition in medieval Italy. It simply sucks. There is so little material for the specific topic I have to pen about! I will have to invesitgate in the National Library again. Sucks big time.

I am currently at my Lurve's. Yesterday we went into the forest. We got lost. It was not funny. I was scared. It was cold. It rained. It was foggy. It was muddy. One tree had in it's middle- exactly on my eye-height something that looked like a ghost-face. I nearly suffered a heart-attack. I saw two roes. That was it. Afterwards I got banana juice with wheat beer to calm down. Next time I am gonna think twice before wandering around with my Hunk. Twice if not three times....
In parallel to my thesis I am working on a little book- some art thingy- for my boyfriend. Drawing and writing things you know- to show him some affection, since he claims jokingly or to enkindle me, he misses it. For now I made only six pages full- which means I have to find some ideas for 90 more pages at least.... Love my

And some electrifying news for the end : Kanye West realeses his brand new album one month earlier- that is in ...November! Brazilliant!!!!! Can't wait. It MUST be pluperfect! I mean Graduation was simple amazing and perfect... It's truly a masterpiece... I can listen to it again and again and again...
Back to work.
Though I hate it....

Impero..impero...e davvero impero...

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 14.46

I hate studying, I really hate it! But what you have to do, you have to..or so. I am just done with L'imperfetto, Futuro Semplice, Trapassato Remoto, Il comparativo, Il imperativo, let's say I know il passato remoto and now I have to learn only il condizionale presente, and I am done with grammar. Tomorrow I have to learn some (a few pages only) vocabulary, and on Monday in between I have to repeat everything I know , about Seta.... I am so cheesed off mentally.. and also physically- we got up at five in the afternoon! Imagine that?! If my Mom knew, I'd be dead right now...
Talked to Ulla a bit on the phone, and also to Tita... She actually reached Susi, who seems to be fine, so I am relieved... (we did not hear from her for ages, so we were worried..).
Okay I am back to imperare (= to study in italiano), so is my Love. And while I am doing this, I am listening to Kanye West. After Can't tell me Nothing, this one is one of his very best (well all are outstanding actually).

Jesus Walks
- Kanye West

Yo, We at war
We at war with terrorism, racism, and most of all we at war with ourselves
(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the Devil trying to break me down
(Jesus Walks with me) with me, with me, with me [fades]

You know what the Midwest is?
Young & Restless
Where restless (N*ggas) might snatch your necklace
And next these (N*ggas) might jack your Lexus
Somebody tell these (N*ggas) who Kanye West is
I walk through the valley of the Chi where death is
Top floor the view alone will leave you breathless Uhhhh!
Try to catch it Uhhhh! It's kinda hard hard
Getting choked by the detectives yeah yeah now check the method
They be asking us questions, harass and arrest us
Saying "we eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast"
Huh? Yall eat pieces of shit? What's the basis?
We ain't going nowhere but got suits and cases
A trunk full of coke rental car from Avis
My momma used to say only Jesus can save us
Well momma I know I act a fool
But I'll be gone 'til November I got packs to move I Hope

(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the Devil trying to break me down
(Jesus Walks with me)
The only thing that that I pray is that my feet don't fail me now
(Jesus Walks)
And I don't think there is nothing I can do now to right my wrongs
(Jesus Walks with me)
I want to talk to God but I'm afraid because we ain't spoke in so long

To the hustlers, killers, murderers, drug dealers even the strippers
(Jesus walks with them)
To the victims of Welfare for we living in hell here hell yeah
(Jesus walks with them)
Now hear ye hear ye want to see Thee more clearly
I know he hear me when my feet get weary
Cause we're the almost nearly extinct
We rappers are role models we rap we don't think
I ain't here to argue about his facial features
Or here to convert atheists into believers
I'm just trying to say the way school need teachers
The way Kathie Lee needed Regis that's the way I need Jesus
So here go my single dog radio needs this
They say you can rap about anything except for Jesus
That means guns, sex, lies, video tapes
But if I talk about God my record won't get played Huh?
Well let this take away from my spins
Which will probably take away from my ends
Then I hope this take away from my sins
And bring the day that I'm dreaming about
Next time I'm in the club everybody screaming out

(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the devil trying to break me down
(Jesus Walks)
The only thing that that I pray is that my feet don't fail me now
(Jesus Walks)
And I don't thing there's nothing I can do now to right my wrongs
(Jesus walks with me... fades)
I want to talk to God but I'm afraid because we ain't spoke in so long

Studying, studying and...studying

Yesterday we celebrated Assal's and Jana's b-day's. And today I am totally cheesed off, especially since I literally fucked the whole-biorythm-thingy I had been working on for weeks. Gone and gone. The bday itselves were more some sort of Ladies Night, with Grey's Anatomy and stuff, some champagne and chatting. We got home around 2 a.m and I was supposed to get the first train to Hannover at 6 a.m! I had to pack first and than I fell asleep- imagine that I woke up 5 minutes before my alarm clock went off, which is a miracle! Things like this only happen, when I am überexcited and/or travelling somewhere. Apart from that I put on my hardest efforts into staying in bed as long as it gets. Anyways, I got to the station a few minutes before the train left and my Love picked me from the station. Imagine that he attached a pretty sunflowe pic to one of the walls at the station, because I love them so :). It was so wonderful seeing him again after almost three days ;). I really do love him much!
Now I am learning Italian, since my Love went to work and have to write a special poem. Oh Geez. Okay back to work!
AC Milan won 3-1 against Zürich in the first stage of the UEFA Cup. Thanks God!
We are the best!

Can't Tell Me Nothing
-Kanye West
I had a dream I can buy my way to heaven
When I awoke, I spent that on a necklace.
I told God I'd be back in a second,
Man It's so hard not to act reckless.
To whom much is given much is tested.
Get arrested, got some chili, get the message.
I feel the pressure, under more scrutiny,
And What I do? Act more stupidly.
Bought More Jewelry, More Louis V, My momma couldn't get through to me.
The drama, people suing me,
I'm on T.V. talking like it's just you and me.
I'm just saying how I feel man,
I ain't one of the Cosby’s I ain’t go to Hill man
I guess the money should've changed him,
I guess I should've forgot where I came From.

La,la,la,la wait till I get my money right
la, la, la, la then you cant tell me nothing right
Excuse Me, is you saying something?
Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothing
(Haha) you cant tell me nothing
Uh, uh, you cant tell me nothing

Let up the suicide doors.
This is my life homey, you decide yours.
I know Jesus died for us,
But I couldn't tell you who decide wars.
So I parallel double parked that motherf***er sideways
Old folks talking bout back in my day
But homey this is my day.
Class started 2 hours ago, oh am I late?
You know I already graduated
And you can live through anything if Magic made it.

They say I talk with so much emphasis,
OOOO They so Sen-Sa-Tive.
Don't ever fix your lips like collagen
Say something were you gone end up apologing.
Let me know if it's a problem man,
Alright man, holla then.

La,la,la,la wait till I get my money right
la, la, la, la then you cant tell me nothing right
Excuse Me, is you saying something?
Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothing
(Haha) you cant tell me nothing
Uh, uh, you cant tell me nothing

Let the champagne splash, let that man get cash,
Let that man get past.
You don't needa stop to get gas,
If he can move through the rumors, he can drive off the fumes cuzz
How he move in a room full of nose?
How he stay faithful in a room full of h**s?
Must be the pharaohs, he in tune with his soul,
So when he buried in a tomb full of gold.
Treasure. What's you pleasure?
Life is a, uh, depending how you dress her.
So if the devil wear Prada,
Adam Eve wear Nada,
I'm in between, but way more fresher.
But way less effort, cause when you try hard,
That's when you die hard.
Ya homies looking like "Why God?"
When they reminisce over you, my god.

One of Kanye's best songs ever. Do you get the message of it?! Everyone's a bit Kanye I guess.... As for it- I adore this song, and could listen to it the whole day. He is one of the best artists out there!

Believe it or not- but we have wonderful sunshine here in northern Germany! That gives you as a person so much extra-power for the whole day. It is so beautiful outdoors! Anyways, I am again at my hunks' parents' house, studying, while he is at work. I have a guilty conscience, since I kept talking to him throughout the night, and he must be half-dead now. But these were higher powers, meaning I had to sort things out. And I am so glad he thaught me to talk, and not to keep things for me, that bother me. It feels so much better now, even though I think I am a way to vain sometimes.
Just talked to Stephan (my friend from Chile)- haven't seen him for weeks!!!!He is one of the most positive persons I have ever met. Once you see him, you feel some good spirit, and he can't help not to smile!
Anyways, I am now back to study and read for Italiano. Just wanted to mention, that Federer won the US Open (he faced Britain's Murray in the finals). Congrats Roger!
I am off, but with one little thing - one of my favourite songs ( I love Kanye!) :

Day 13 - Noosa

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 23.00

I got up early to catch a bus to Noosa. I checked into the YHA hostel, on top of a steep driveway.

Noosa Beach

I'd been strongly recommended to see Noosa National Park, so I headed out to go there. But on the way, I got a glimpse of Noosa beach and it was packed with people! It was a lovely day, sunny and warm. Aussies love going to the beach, so they can't wait to go back as soon as the weather gets warm after winter.

Tourists turned immigrants

Walking on the streets, I ran into an older man from the Netherlands and started a conversation. A long time ago, he came to visit Queensland. He liked it, so he kept coming back for holidays for several years. He was so impressed by its weather, beauty and lifestyle that he finally decided to move here permanently with his wife.

Curious Jade

There was a Jazz festival in town, so I went to see it. I met a friendly Australia girl named Jade there. She was a university student in the arts who wants to become a designer for stage productions. She was very curious about my country, Iran. We talked at length about women's rights, fundamentalist Islam, my views on Israel, etc. But she was in town with her family so eventually her sister came to get her.

Noosa National Park

This park was so beautiful I thought to myself, "I want to live here."

Australia, you bloody beauty!

Jeg elsker deg!

Gorgeous weekend!

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 15.25

It's Sunday, and I must say that my resumee of this very weekend is better than perfect! My <3and me came back to Gottinga on Friday (after missing three or four trains). Assal was still in Kassel, so we had the flat for us only ;). Got up at 5 a.m the next morning, to catch the first train to Hamburg, to spend the whole day there. I must tell you- it was amazingly great. I can tell you one thing- Hamburg is the northern's Munich! After 7 hours of shopping we went back, to find Funda and Assal drinking Nemiroff (Ukrainian Vodka) a la maison. So we joined the girls- the eve was so great. We eventually ended up playing "Flaschendrehen"- a typical German teenie-game, ni which you use an empty (optical) bottle, turn it around and ask the person on which it points whether he/she wants to answer a question or do something. It was really great, since we were only four it was let's say quite intimate, and we learned a lot of stuff about each others (and some things made me love my hunk even more). After that we went to bed, and my Lurve just told me how much he loves me and that he wanted to eat me for my answers I had given during the game:). Today was goodie, Funda came over and we played "Risiko", escorted my Love to the station (he comes tomorrow to fetch me) and talked for hours (accompanied by some white wine) with Assal. Now it's time to go to bed. I have some stuff to do tomorrow, plus pack, since I am gonna spend two day's at my <3>house. Nighty night!


Day 12 - Fraser Island

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 23.00

Fraser Island is a World Hertiage listed site and the largest sandy island in the world, measuring 120 km by 15 km!

We were picked up at our hostels in Hervey Bay in the early morning and took a 45 minute ferry ride to get to Fraser Island.

Dutch Company

I was with a group of tourists from all over. I met a couple of PhD students named Johanna and Wim from the University of Twente in the Netherlands. We were all postgraduate students, so we got along well and stuck together for the rest of the day.

Hilarious Bus Driver

Our bus driver on the Island, Dave, was talkative and very entertaining. In between the stops he would share with us his amusing stories and funny ideas. For example, he explained that the world's increasing population is straining our natural resources to the limit, and so our problem isn't global warming, but "global bonking"! lol. His approach was very scientific and factual though, so he had obviously done a lot of reading.


This is a picture of the koala Dave showed us. It was the first koala I'd seeing outside of a zoo, so naturally I got very excited. I looked closer and the koala was wearing a backpack! It didn't look very life-like either. It turned out to be a fake koala that was put there just to tease tourists like us! Hahaha... There are actually no koalas on Fraser Island.

Sand Dunes

This is a sand dune where the aboriginals used to live. The sand gradually moves sideways with the wind, killing the trees in the adjacent forest.

Sandy Highway

The beach on the eastern side of the Island (the side facing the Pacific Ocean) is very long and surprisingly straight. It's a 75 km stretch of sand about 20 m wide that serves as a sandy "highway" for the 4WDs and buses that drive up and down at high speeds.!

Eli Creek

This massive stream of water originates from the freshwater lakes on the island. The water slowly seeps through the surrounding banks and flows outwards, finally merging with salty seawater at the beach.

Flat Tyre

Mid-way, one of the bus's tires went flat. I helped replace it with the spare tyre.

Maheno Shipwreck

This ship was sold by Australia to Japan to be used as scrap metal. As it was being towed to Japan, the towing rope snapped and brought the ship to shore. Now it's a tourist attraction! I was impressed to see the steel structure of the ship was still in good condition after being hit by waves for all these years.

Lake McKenzie

This freshwater lake has crystal clear water with a beautiful blue colour. Johanna, Wim and I spent most of our time here swimming. We swam all the way to a different beach without a person in sight. On the way back, I raced Johanna and lost! :-( She does triathlons so my ego isn't crushed too badly.


We did a 30 minute hike through the rainforest. The trees here are very tall because they have to compete for sunlight.


At the end of the day, we took the ferry back to Hervey Bay, and were bidden farewell by a magestic sunset. It was an awesome sight!
