You can see by my eyes that it is early.
I can’t look.
Good morning. I was lazy during the weekend.
I didn’t want to do anything. Honestly, I just wanted to watch series and movies
and I was practicing Portuguese.
because today I have a Portuguese exam, or test better said.
It will last for 2 hours.
So I have to prepare for it today.
This will be the topic of the next (previous) video, how I prepared myself and what I have learned so far.
I am staring my day with my oatmeal.
Maybe it does not seem pretty, but that is just because I did not make an effort to cut the apples properly.
Underneath the apples there are oats, goji berries?
What else do I have? Chia seeds and buckwheat.
And I cover all of that with lukewarm water.
I actually boil the water first
I wait a few seconds, or a minute or two and then I pour the water over it.
You could also use milk. Any type of milk.
Of course, plant based.
And there you go.
This will not be a mukbang
because I will eat in peace.
Anyway, today’s day will not be that interesting.
What I wanted to show is how my day functions when I work.
Monday is one of the worst days for me.
because I usually work very late (until 22:00)
This is because of my course, but usually work until 18:00 or 19:00.
So today I will show how stressed I am and what I eat.
As you can see, I usually take oatmeal in the morning. You can make it with anything.
With whatever you think of: with cinnamon, cacao
With any type of fruit, with peanut butter…
Really, with anything. You can even eat oats without anything.
Later I will go to Mensa. They always have something vegan over there.
At least they have side dishes, so I can always take rice with veggies.
What I have to learn is to prepare meals in advance, actually for the next couple of days.
Yesterday I cooked something, so I will have something to eat today.
You will see in a couple of minutes/seconds what I ate. And that’s it.
Does anyone even say that?
Alright, this will be my…
This will not be my lunch because I will go to mensa, but it will be my snack.
Something between lunch and dinner because I eat very often.
So here I have rice with veggies that I made.
As you can see, there is also some rice in the veggies. It all got mixed, sorry for that.
But the point is that I made veggies with coconut milk
and if you don’t know how to make a sauce, just put coconut milk.
And I have this container which is not made of plastic, yaaay.
You can use it forever, you just have to clean it.
That’s it. Very simple. These containers are maybe not the best when you have liquids.
But there are different ways to go about it.
Basically, if I have some liquids that I want to transport, I just use a jar.
But this will be enough for today.
I know I’ve already mentioned it, but it’s a really good song.
I forgot to film myself when I was in mensa, but this is because I was talking so much that I forgot.
I was there with my colleagues, and I just ate and talked. You couldn’t stop me.
But ok. Currently I want to eat chocolate, but I’ve brought food with me.
There you go. That’s my container. And now I will eat what I prepared for myself.
Rice and veggies. I hope I will not be hungry during the whole exam.
Because I have my Portuguese exam now.
Let’s see. I have some hour and a half left.
I have to et and repeat, because I have to go over some material again.
But ok. Always ready. Always ready for the exam – me.
Am I the only one that stores pressed plants?
I always put them in my notebook.
There are beautiful. Look. This is my herbarium.
I’ve finished with my exam!
I always wanted to do this.
A kiddo finished with her exam.
I have to admit that it was difficult.
It was really difficult because there was so much to do.
There were many tasks and subtasks, like a) b) and so on.
But ok. I already know. The worst thing is when you study, and you go over everything several times.
And then when you see something in the exam you don’t know. You are sure you have absolutely no idea what the answer is.
I had a question “What is the name of the person working at the restaurant?”, and I didn’t know how to say ‘waiter’.
And… I don’t know…Couldn’t think of it.
And I wanted to use the word in Spanish (camarero) and twist it to ‘camareiro’.
And in the end the answer turned out to be ‘garçon’.
Which reminds me of French.
So that was one of the examples I didn’t know.
I have a feeling as if I’ve gone back to my BA studies
and I would do my exam, and I would want to pass but also get a good grade
and at the end you are fearful of what will happen
But the fact if you’ve learned something or not, that’s not that important.
So this time around, I went thinking even if I get a low grade, even if I fail
It’s not that important. The most important thing is: can I use that language?
I’ve just been learning it for a few months. Who cares, honestly.
I can say what’s my name, where I am from, how old I am. That’s it.
And these are some things I’ve learned in these couple of months. I’ve learned the basics. But to have some deeper conversation…
So I was like, it was ok. I didn’t do everything as I wanted, but honestly I think I will get a good grade.
Today I actually wanted to film myself to show what I eat.
At the end I only showed breakfast, I forgot to show what I ate for lunch.
For lunch I ate broccoli soup.
And next to that I mixed various different kinds of salad
with veggies and with…what are they? Noodles
Something like that. With noodles that were also with spices. So I mixed that and at least I had something on the side.
Because it is important for me to eat salad every day.
And then I bought a chocolate bar which is…tasty, very tasty.
There are 3 kinds. One is with coconut, one is with hazelnut (that one is better).
People who love hazelnut:
Like nougat with some hazelnuts.
And aside form these two…The one I bought today is with
I can’t remember what is was made of
I think it was with rice. I can’t remember, I will put, if I find, I will put a picture.
And it was really really tasty. Really tasty.
And I bought this before my exam because I knew I needed a bit of energy, a bit of sugar to hit me.
And that’s it.
And now…what I will eat is…
Food from yesterday.
next time I will try to actually film what I am doing.
and not not to film myself, because that has no point, does it? I don’t know.
For people who want to learn, be it people from the Balkan area, but also for those who want to learn German
Yesterday I spent 4 hours watching a series.
Which is more suitable for teenagers.
But having in mind that I can’t understand everything in German
then the best thing is to start with something easy.
So if you want something easy, something like a soap opera
like a telenovela, but in German
You can watch this for free on youtube
But I genuinely enjoyed it. It’s good. I like it.
The name of the series is ‘Druck’.
I can’t barely pronounce it, but ok.
And yeah, you have here ‘folge’ which is kind of like an episode, or whatever.
It usually lasts for 20 minutes or half an hour.
And in this way you can watch it. The original series was from Norway, if I remember correctly.
And it became so popular, that at the end they made one in France, Italy, and now in Germany.
Ok, not now, it’s been there since one year ago.
And that’s it. I think it’s entertaining. If you want to watch something in German before you go to sleep, there you go.
These are all languages I know, I got no more.
See you in the next vlog. Bye!
