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.
