Sunday Post #7 | I’m graduating!

Sunday Post #7 | I'm graduating!The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This way, I can tell you a little about my week and sum up what happened on the blog and everything else that I find interesting.

This week on the blog

Coming up next week

  • August wrap-up
  • Review: The Martian by Andy Weir
  • August book haul
  • Review: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • On my bookshelf #11
  • Review: The Legacy Human by Susan Kaye Quinn


Alina’s back from Scotland, so we hung out Tuesday night. It also meant I could finally give her her birthday present, since she was in Scotland on her birthday.

Talking about birthdays, I’ve decided to no longer use wrapping paper. I’ll finish the wrapping paper I still have, but won’t buy anymore. Instead, I’ll use cloth wrapping, that can be reused. Also, I’ve figured out some great ways to make details with origami made out of old book pages (those that are so beat up, there’s no way they’re going to be reread). The picture above is how the present was wrapped.

I will officially be graduating tomorrow! Finally! I’m very excited to finally be done and to continue on to German bureaucracy. Ok, I’m not excited about the bureaucracy, but at least it’s going somewhere now.

I found out there’s such a thing as ‘key insurance’ in Germany. Sure, I already knew Germans have insurance for just about anything (I’m not kidding) and now keys have been added to that list. If you loose your key (from work for example), the insurance company will pay what it would costs to replace all the locks etc. Is this a thing in any other countries?

TMI warning – This week I decided to try to reduce waste in another way. As you know I’ve already decided to start a capsule wardrobe, don’t want to buy new wrapping paper anymore or get anymore plastic bags in stores. Now, I’ve bought a menstrual cup. I’ve yet to use it, but this should reduce waste from pads and tampons, as it’s meant to be re-used. Does anyone else have any experience with this?

  • Any bookish/personal/other questions? Let me know in the comments, through email, Facebook, Instagram and I’ll answer them! Maybe I’ll even do a Q&A post or write an entire blog post.

  1. Gefeliciteerd met je afstuderen! Heel benieuwd naar je ervaring met de menstruatiecups. Ik heb het ook overwogen, maar vind ze toch best prijzig en ik weet nog niet zo goed wat ik ervan moet vinden haha.

    1. Dankjewel!

      Ze zijn inderdaad niet goedkoop, maar de meeste mensen waarvan ik reviews heb gelezen lijken er toch blij mee te zijn. Ik hopelijk ook. Ik ga het ervaren.


  2. Congrats on graduation! I’m abou 60% finished with Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn, but it was getting REALLY predictable so I put it down for a bit. No I have NEVER heard of a menstrual cup. And while I support your reduction of waste the idea freaks me out! Good luck though, maybe it’ll work for you.

    1. Thank you! Too bad it’s so predictable. That’s luckily not at all the case with The Singularity series so far.
      Yea, it scares me a bit as well, but how else am I going to figure out whether it works for me or not? I definitely get the freak out part though 😉


  3. I haven’t heard of key insurance on this side of the pond, but then again it is believed that if the address is not on the key it won’t matter if it is lost. The cloth wrapping looks nice. We use and reuse gift bags in much the same way here.

    1. I’m just glad no one seems to have heard of key insurance (at least no one that’s responded). I was afraid I’d missed a whole new trend or something somewhere. Though the Germans are notorious for having everything ensured and having lawyers for everything.


  4. I don’t have experience with the menstrual cup but read something about it on a series of US health and fitness blogs last year… I can’t remember how / why it came up but it was something I’d never heard of.
