Wow, the big day is only 4 weeks away today - approximately of course. Because you can never say for sure when exactly the baby will decide to come out. Well, according to what my mother told me I however was born exactly on the calculated date. The story is easy to tell: My mother didn't feel well and walked (!) with my grandmother to the hospital and not even two hours later I was there, just without any trouble whatsoever. My mother even complained that she was hungry, but no one wanted to give her something  to eat, because I was...

Hi everyone! I'm really sorry about the lack of updates in the last months. Somehow I just didn't feel like writing much. And then so much has changed in my life as well: Last year in November Tom and me found out that we will be expecting a child. I was really surprised at first, not that I became pregnant of course XD, because we wanted to have children now and stopped using any birth control in late summer, I already stopped using Evra in late 2012, but since as you might know I was having a pretty hard time and had to...

Last Saturday Tom and me went to the Distant Worlds: music from Final Fantasy Event at the Wiener Konzerthaus here in Vienna. I heard about this concert only one week in advance when I received one of the many Square Enix newsletters. We more or less instantly ordered ticket from oeticket.com and got them via mail in the middle of the week. There were even special VIP tickets including a Meet and Greet with Nobuo Uematsu, the composer of these and many other great video game songs, and Arnie Roth, the conductor, but we decided to get the middle price tickets,...

Last sunday I invited some friends over for a summer BBQ party. I planned this date already 2 months ago and I was a little scared, because the weather has been so bad right before last sunday. Fortunately it was a wonderful day with a lot of sun, but it wasn't that hot on the other hand. Perfect for a delicious barbecue outside! I prepared some salads (greek, italian noodle salad and tofu-couscous salad) and we also had a lot of meat and grilled vegetables. Everyone brought something nice, so we had sooo much to eat and drink! The dresscode was: Colorful...

I took holiday this week (but I have to work on saturday again), so I have a lot of free time and will hopefully be able to catch some sun and get some things done. As some of you'll know E3 starts today! I'm already so excited about the next generation (well, at least for the PS4) and all the new games that they'll show or even might announce. Except for all the obvious stuff, I'm really interested if there are some new JRPGs. Ni no Kuni was great and we even get Tales of Xillia 1 later this year, but...

So in mid-May I finally visited my family in Hannover/Germany again for one and a half week. The weather was pretty nice. Not as hot as in Vienna at that time, it really felt like spring with occasional rain, that always stopped pretty fast again. We used a lot of time for gaming. We bought Persona 4 Arena and the new Naruto Shippuuden PS3 game, we played some Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and a PSN Bomberman (Bomberman never gets old!). We also puzzled all characters through "The Cave", a PSN download game by the Monkey Island creator. It was hilarious...

Hi everyone, I'm back from my vacation in Hannover again. I had a great time finally visiting my family again, but before I tell you about Hannover, let me first tell you about the beautiful wedding I've been at, just one day before our flight was booked: Tom's best friend from school was getting married and we were invited. I was a little bit nervous, because I know he is a perfectionist, and me with my new hair color and I also didn't know really anyone except for him >.<...

Hi everyone, how are you? Today, I just wanted to show you, my new baby: I finally saved enough money to buy a new photo camera ^.^! First I thought about buying a digital SLR camera. I really loved taking photos with SLR cameras, but they are so big and heavy to just take them around, and I'm someone who wants just to take photos every time and everywhere, so I was rather skeptical about buying one. With all the advertisement for the Nikon 1 camera, I really became interested in the new system cameras, which are not only as small as...
