Summer is Here III

Two weeks ago I had my last day at the consulting agency I've now been working for 2 1/2 years. Recently I've been working quite a lot, always after a workout in the gym in Zurich. Now I can focus on my bachelor thesis and after my holidays in Italy together with Valentina I will work for Unilever for half a year.

Besides I got some exam marks back. Actually I was really good this time, got a 6 in Marketing (this exam I had just an hour after my job interview at Unilever), a 5.5 in Human Nutrition and a 5.25 in Food Processing. Now I write on my bachelor thesis to get the final 17 credit points.

Almost two week ago, Valentina and I went on the Rhine by boat. Her cousin drove us to Stein am Rhein, where we pumped the rubber boat and soon set sail! It was a hot day, but the water was still a bit cold at 15°C. Nevertheless we jumped in to have a swim. We stopped several times to have a cup of ice cream or something to drink or eat. Especially when the evening sun lit everything in a beautiful red color, it was pure pleasure to float on the Rhine!

Last week we went to Herisau AR, where a sport meet was set. Valentina once trained in a local club and wanted to support her friends. As they had their first performance early in the morning, we left on friday evening and slept in the car! This was quite funny as we slept in the car trunk with plenty of space! We had blankets and pillows in there, so it was like a normal bed! :-)

The day before I went to eat a Pizza with my friend Michael, as we didn't meet for quite a long time. He's now going to Lanzarote with his girlfriend! I kind of envy him, as I have beautiful memories of that little island!
