Hi there minna-san!

Here is some update on my life in point form:

+ Managed to do simultaneous interpreting in front of the whole company for the president from Japan (highest rank O_o)
+ Failed technical interpretation meeting, so no reason to become conceited, haha ;_;" *cries*
+ But actually improving
+ Love my colleagues, they're awesome ;_; Always so sweet and supporting.
+ And apart from that, they provide me with Calpis and Miso-ingredients and tons of Japanese snacks
+ Went to Karaoke again: Was forced to sing "I am Sailormoon", because... well I  am o_O" (I got told by several people  Also sang Cutey Honey, Evangelion and "Rosier" from Luna Sea (everyone was looking like o__O WTF)
+But actually ending up alone on the weekends most of the time because of poor planning skills and chores and cleaning
+Plus my physical condition is unstable lately
+But really want to improve the situation
+Drawing and Painting is going well again ;O; :heart:
+Successfully growing plants on my balcony *_*
+Still getting to work on my 17-year-old bicycle (I guess it's even older as I got it second hand back then...) at any weather...(headwind all the time @@)
+now on to the OOC part:
+Me. the non-gamer, is prepared to surrender: Borrowed PS2 from dear Yume-Sakurai and bought a Nintendo Wii o__O
+And is looking foward to playing GAMES (even RPGs... oh now it really gets OOC @@) (Tell me if you have any recommendations btw)
+Hope my neighbours from below won't kill me because of Dance Dance Revolution *_*"""
+Watching Anime again o__O (Recommendations? ... I barely watched anything in the last.. 5 years?)
+Got into watching really old American series like... "I dream of Jeannie" XDDD (deutsch: Bezaubernde Jeannie)

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 7, 2012, 8:54 AM
Hi everyone,

how have you been lately?

I am quite ok I think.

January and February were actually relaxing compared to last year, things have settled down a bit and I was able to lead a relatively "normal" life.
As you might have noticed, I've also found some time for drawing, but I'm still not satisfied at all. I feel that I need something like a shakeup. I really like my sketches and I do loads of them, but I think I still haven't found what I'm looking for (*lol* Do I have to credit U2 now...?) when it comes to the actual picture. I miss the lively untidy lines from my sketches and I tend to colour my pieces to death out of cluelessness . Maybe the result looks ok and others might not see the problem, but I do...
I have so much inspiration and ideas, but I always try to get around drawing complicated things and perspectives, and this is just... gnargh, I can't be content with that. What a waste, really.

So be prepared for experiments.

I hope I get something done as March will be a busy month at work.
I have been doing a lot of interpreting these days (and more to come!!) and I finally feel some sense of achievement. For a long time, I had the impression that I was not improving at all, but you always realize what progress you made at times when you least expect it.
But no time for complacency, it is still a long way to go...

oh, and some 'cultural activity'  *lol*:

♦went to Edvard Munch exhibition (I just love him....)
♦read "Die Einsamkeit der Primzahlen/La solitudine dei numeri primi" (Solitude of Prime Numbers) by Paolo Giordano (Beautiful title, that's why it got my attention - but I somehow can't relate to the characters, even though there were inspiring sentences and it was beautifully written)
♦read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows
(This was actually fun. Yes. Quite unexpectedly)

I rediscovered books. I was actually fed up with books since university, but I guess I'm ok now.

yes. that's all for now *g*

I did not have any internet and telephone for 3 WEEKS @@

SORRY for not replying to anything, I was really cut off from everything.

But I LOVE my flat *__*

Even if I don't have any furniture but only boxes, haha...

but 'm so busy at work that I don't mind when I return home. *g*

No really.

What kind of life am I leading?????????

But I'm kind of... really happy. In a strange way. Maybe stress is healthy for me.

(No, it isn't)

(It's rather good for my mental health)

Thank you Petrus ... my manga debut!

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 29, 2011, 6:13 AM

I had some beautiful summer days in Bavaria.
I'm happy. ^v^ (though I had a sunstroke because of the heat - no joke! o_O"" It was awful.)

And ...
I have an announcement to make *_*.
For all my German watchers, I've contributed to the Shojomanga anthology "Blütenträume" with a short story named "Love behind the panels".
My skills are not anywhere near professional (especially regarding inking & using screentones), but I would be happy if you had a look at it, especially because the other artists are very talented and it's definitely worth buying the book.


This anthology will be released at the Connichi 2011 (16th-18th September) and then be available for purchase at comic shops & station bookstores.
I will provide you with more info next time.
aaah I still cannot believe it o_o I mean, I thought I wouldn't make it because I was so stressed out because of other things and just could not draw properly...
I was VERY slow with everything, but I like the result, and everyone was being so nice to me... ;_; I've never been so slow and unreliable in my life and I really felt ashamed of it, but now I'm really really happy :heart:

Still busy searching a flat, but at least I still have one week off. I hope I'll also be able to do more creative stuff, I have plenty of unfinished things here.

August used to be my favourite month ,_,

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 15, 2011, 2:25 PM
note me

But now....?
What happened to summer in Germany, seriously? ;_;
My holidays start on Saturday.
You still have time, Petrus.

I've been working for 4 months now, but it actually feels much longer since everything has been so intense.
I guess I could even write a book about all the stuff that happened to me since April 15th.
I hope I will find the time to finish some pictures during my 2-week holidays, there are also some sketches that are inspired by people at work *g*
But it is really fun. It's hard at times and I still have so much to learn, but I'm happy how things have turned out. It feels right for me. I hope I can become a good interpreter someday. Until now, I was mainly stuffed with translation work, but since I've got used to automotive vocabulary a bit and my translation speed has increased,  I also have to make an effort towards interpreting.
Which is really hard.
Since it ought to become simultaneous.
And it will be mainly Japanese-English and vice-versa.
Neither of them is my mother tongue.
And the contents..............!

Sounds close to impossible,
but I've always been doing things that way.
I hope they're patient with me.
At least my manager thinks I have talent.

I hope you're all doing well?

I'm freezing ;^;
Good Night.

Insomnia or: I can't get no sleep

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 4, 2011, 6:54 PM


This is going on for two weeks now. I go to bed late, I wake up in the middle of the night (usually it's 3 a.m.) and I just can't get back to sleep until like... 5 a.m.?
There are so many things happening at the moment and I really feel I NEED a rest, or else I can't cope with everything...
but my head is just not helpful. Shut down system, please....

I  finally have a job starting on April 15th and I will go to England for one week for an introductory special training.
I'm MORE than excited, I actually cannot quite believe this is happening.
This will become challenging, but I will SO give my best.
It's what I've intended to become after all.

Birds and Cages

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 21, 2011, 10:34 AM

This is our true alarm.
This is reality.
We will do what we can.
We are just figurines
with a theology
that we don’t understand.

We can’t forget the beginning,
when He set our broken wings.

God, how much does it change
for us to be loved?
For us to be saved?
We all are birds
stuck inside our cage,
covered up with grace.
And behind our sins
we hide our face.
Oh, the numbers come.
Yeah, they’re dialing in.
We can’t help but to compare ourselves again.

I can’t believe in this—
this blue-lipped, lifeless kiss.
We can’t see past our thrones.
We fight for life within,
but our walls are wearing thin.
Oh God, where have we gone?

When I’m just one fighting indifference,
does it matter what I say?

God, how much does it take
for us to be loved?
For us to be saved?
We all are birds
stuck inside our cage,
covered up with grace.
And behind our sins
we hide our face.
Oh, the numbers come.
Yeah, they’re dialing in.
We can’t help but to compare ourselves again.

It’s not that there were ever bad intentions—
it’s more that we forgot where to call home.
From important things that we don’t know to mention,
it’s the uniform that we put on—the formula we have for love.

Beautiful intentions
Formula for love

It’s not that there were ever bad intentions—
it’s more that we forgot where to call home.
From important things that we don’t know to mention,
it’s the uniform that we put on—the formula we have for love.

What you can do

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 16, 2011, 9:53 AM

For the majority of us, there is not much we can do at the moment, and we feel helpless and incredibly sad about that.
But please, also take care of yourself. I'm writing this because I see what this is doing to me right now.
Live your every day life as well as possible. Treat others well.
Nobody expects you to smile or act happy if you don't feel like it,  but you also don't have to feel guilty if you distract yourself a bit. Everybody has the right to deal with the situation as they deem best for themselves, but don't get too absorbed by horrible pictures and news.
This doesn't help anybody. Not here and not in Japan.
At least I've come to this conclusion.
After a 24/7 news weekend and more and more shocking and confusing news, I just felt drained.
I found myself crying when I switched on the TV yesterday morning (and also today) because I feel like things should finally become better, but it seems  they don't. I cannot sleep well, I dream of horrible things.
And then I decided to cut down my news input. Of course I want to know what is going on, but I think it is better to watch or maybe even just read a news summary on a day or half-day basis. This also reduces perturbing information that proves wrong in the end. (I'm actually glad that I can also understand Japanese, that makes it easier for me to get a more... „objective" view)
In these times of abundant and ubiquitous information via internet, mobiles, television and radio, you also have to be aware of what images and panic can do to you and how to protect yourself. That doesn't mean closing your eyes to reality at all, but it is not necessary to be up-to-date in real time, at least for now.
Don't believe everything you hear.
Be critical.
Trust your inner voice.
I keep on hoping.

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 13, 2011, 6:31 AM

What a year. Seriously.
Every word I’d like to say about what is happening in Japan right now and how I feel about it seems too ‘weak’.
I think many of us feel like that right now.
I also think that I don’t have any right to say something like “Please don’t give up” or “Be strong” or “I hope everything will get better soon” because the situation is too severe and actually too much to bear.
And people in Japan ARE already very strong.
I am very impressed by that and I think not only me, the whole world is getting an example of how a country braves actually not one, but numerous catastrophes.
I wish I could do more than donate money and my heart and thoughts being with all those who have to suffer.
It hurts to see Japan and its people like this.
Our everyday life is so fragile.
But that’s exactly the reason why we should cherish it and never stop to make an effort.
We don’t know how much time we have left.
I’m saying this because I also forget about that all too often.
See below.

Some of you might have already noticed that I’ve been not active at all for a very long time.
This does not only concern updating my gallery, but also commenting and responding, or, if you want to put it like that, reacting to anything (even e-mails and messages on other communities).
I am so sorry for that, really, and I feel ashamed.
I ran away from everything.
I disappointed many people, I know, and I hate the thought of it.
Things were not going very well lately and I am bad at asking people for help or support because  I always think I’m strong enough to solve my problems on my own. And I think I often feel too ashamed to admit that I'm depressed or that I've failed.
Actually I think I also managed it this time, although I was really, really tired of making an effort.
I was always  asking  myself  “What for? There’s nothing that matters to me anymore. In the end, I’m always alone.”
I lost my optimism. I lost drawing. I lost my confidence.  I lost touch with even my friends. And with every day, everything was just getting worse, and I hated myself more and more for being so weak.
But there’s always a way out.  
I forgave myself.
Everyone is going through this, not just me.
That’s human.
We fall to rise again. That’s what it’s for.
And we have to learn that not just once, but again – and again - and again, and it seems so difficult each time.

This seems all so insignificant considering what people have to go through in Japan and I don’t intend to insult anyone nor by any means compare by putting this all into one entry.
There was just so much I had to get off my chest.
I hope you understand.
And maybe feel with me.

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 19, 2010, 3:57 AM

My song is love
Love to the loveless shown
And it goes on
You don't have to be alone

Your heavy heart
Is made of stone
And it's so hard to see you clearly
You don't have to be on your own
You don't have to be on your own

And I'm not gonna take it back
And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
You're the target that I'm aiming at
Can I get that message home?

My song is love
My song is love unknown,
But I'm on fire for you, clearly
You don't have to be alone
You don't have to be on your own

And I'm not gonna take it back
And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
You're the target that I'm aiming at
And I'm nothing on my own
Got to get that message home

And I'm not gonna stand and wait
I'm not gonna leave it until it's much too late
On a platform, I'm gonna stand and say
That I'm nothing on my own
And I love you, please come home

My song is love, is love unknown?
And I've got to get that message home.

First the Earth was flat
But it fattened up when we didn't fall off
Now we spin laps around the Sun
Oh the gods lost 2-1
The host of Heaven pointed out to us from lightyears away
We're surrounded by a billion galaxies

Things are not always, things are not always how they seem
Will you be ready (will you be ready?)

The interim of life has got you tiptoed
and pinning all your hopes on the top dog of dreams
you're not alone in this
The pollyfilla way looks strong in the weakness of the gaps

Things are not always, things are not always how they seem
They don't turn out always, don't quite
turn out always how we think
Will we be ready (will we be ready?)

I'm dying to know what's in your head
I'm dying to know how it all got in there
I'm dying to know, to help make some sense of it all
I'm dying to know, tell me is it my fault?

I care about you darling
And I care about you
Cause I care about you more than anyone else

Things are not always, things are not always how they seem
They don't turn out always, don't quite
turn out always how we think
Will we be ready?
