Resolution #1: stopping to smoke.

web 2

Being on the run-up to my 50th, I am pursuing a few projects and resolutions all to be completed by this symbolic birthday next year. Some are on-going long-term resolutions, some are stop-short, black-and-white and on the spot projects to be instantly put into practice, one of which is stopping to smoke. I have been stopping since last new year and am doing quite well….

2016 – what a year!

Auge 1

Whilst 2016 started smoothly, it constantly picked up speed to ultimately find its own staccato finale. I had not known before but if I had, 2016 wouldn’t have taken the course it took.

Studies moving forward


What a relief! The result of the first partial exam was communicated: mathematics. And I gloriously passed with 1.3 according to the German system.

Which is what? 18/20 in French terms and an A/AA in UK-terms?

Anyhow, it is a brilliant result and I am very happy, because I was not sure at all. All previous tests were quite good, too, but I thought I had made some minor concentration mistakes, which apparently was not the case.

Now let’s wait for the part „Scientific Working Techniques“, where I think I have not really excelled.

Keep you posted!

But for those who speak German, quote:

„Das Gute ist: Teilklausuren, die bereits vorliegen, können bereits eine Aussage über bestehen und Nicht-Bestehen der Gesamtprüfung treffen. So können Sie gar nicht mehr durchfallen, egal wie WiAr TK (50 % an der Note) gelaufen ist, da GLMS TK (ebenfalls 50 % an der Note) mit 1,3 absolviert wurde. Daher hätten Sie schlechtstenfalls mit 3,1 bestanden (nämlich: (1,3+5,0):2). Wir gratulieren!

Shit happens …


As you may well know, I have started my studies of an MBA this November. For somebody who is used to comment and judge others it is quite a thing to get used to being commented and judged. But it is the main purpose of a study: you have to learn, move forward and simply advance with your knowledge and get used to be criticised. You are going for a study because you don’t know things yet but want them to know….
