I’m not sure what to write on my ‘About’-page because I don’t want it to be boring or standard because while I can be a tad boring I am definitely not a standard person (Let me check that again very quickly…nah, definitely not standard or normal. See!). If you don’t believe me, well then I can’t help you.

I am as clueless a blogger as I am about living my life. It makes it more fun though, not knowing where you’re headed and let’s be honest, nobody really knows what life will throw at them.

I squee with delight when it snows, have a slight(!) obsession with striped socks and don’t see myself as a grown-up woman at all despite the fact that I’m 25 years old and on my own. There’s always a melody caught on my mind that I tend to sing out loud when I believe there is no one listening or just don’t care if there is.  I love books and TV shows and live too much on the internet for my own good.

The name of this blog is actually a pretty accurate description of the moods I go through in a day, or maybe just a few hours, depending on what kind of day it is.

I try to be an optimist but I’m only an optimistic-realist on my best day and a pessimist on my worst.

I just finished my degree in Industrial Engineering from a German University and am currently looking for a job. As you may guess, English is not my first language and I still live in my non-english speaking home-country so please keep that in mind while reading my posts. If you find a typo, it’s yours to keep.

Please feel free to comment or follow this crazy ride, some people may call life. Don’t forget to fasten your seatbelt because the way is most likely to be a bumpy one while we find out together where I’m headed, because I have no idea where this is going!

P.S. Wilhelmina Upton is a nom de plume but everything else about me on this blog is real.

    Well thank you for the follow! Industrial Engineering eh? I can only imagine how intense that must be…Oh well, English is also not my first language!! So I can understand you on that one! But just from looking at your posts I would have never known :D

    Anyways congrats on being tagged, and continue those great posts!

      Most of the time I really like stduying Industrial Engineering but not when I have to write exams. But I think that goes for all studies. I actually prefer the engineering part over trhe business part, which I guess is a bit strange for most people.

      • onwindydays February 26, 2012 at 22:30 #

        Well the engineering part is probably the fun part! Who wants to do business?? Haha, just kidding :D

        I’ll start to study but I get distracted so easily…it’s terrible! But on the other hand it is quite a stress relief. I don’t really care if anyone reads what I write as long as I have the chance to share my own thoughts. I think that’s all that matters. And no worries! I like the atmosphere here!
