Mah hair

is about 60cm long.. and I was expecting it to be 3mm. Kind of a bit of a difference, huh?

Well, let's get back to the time when I decided to let my hair grow. It was some when in in the later half of high school. I was more or less excluded from my class mates and I guess I wanted to express being different by growing my hair. Surely I was also influenced by my sister, who was taking a step or two in the direction of goth-style.

About when my hair started touching my shoulders I thought about what to exactly do with my hair. Dreadlocks was the answer, but I dropped the idea because these are rather expensive. I left them long, because I got used to it.

It's worth mentioning that some when around this time I also started wearing exclusively black. And I also got used to this.

Anyways, around summer last year two of my friends, who also had long hair (though not as long as mine :D), cut theirs down. One also got 3mm or something, while the other kept some of his length.
I started asking myself if I might decide to do this as well and was positive about it, since I now was doing sports in my free time and the hair gets in the way sometimes - especially when I'm fighting with Ionenbombe. And I'd also be faster when showering. The only disadvantage that might exist is loosing style. Whatever ^^

I still kept it though for Carnival, since last year there was a street band I was head banging with a bunch of friends to, since their music was sweet and I planned doing so again. I was also looking into maybe singing for a metal-band a few friends of mine opened, but I didn't take the time to take singing lessons, so I dropped that.

While I was lucky enough to not get invited to go on the streets on Carnival I had decided to take acting class in school for theater. Everyone in the 12th grade has to do something for your yearly theater; despite acting there's stuff like stage building, costume & make-up, editorial staff, organisational staff and technic staff (caring about sounds, music, lights and camera).
I decided for acting, because I was hoping to work against my shyness a bit and because Ionenbombe was in acting class last year and recommended it.

I regret this decision though. We had a new teacher this year; the last year we were playing classical theater and she wanted to do a more modern styled theater. Well, I thought I could get through with just blind obeying, but it still was shit since we should be like open and develop own stuff 'n shit.
Well, because of choosing acting class I decided to let my long hair stay till the theater plays are all over. This was a well made decision, since I was chosen to be Poseidon, the greek god of the see and earth-shaker.

Anyways about three weeks ago the last theater play was held. I was content that acting was over and it was time to let my hair leave my head. I also heard from some friends, that I can get money for my long hair, since wigs can be made out of it. So I phoned an hair-studio, but just to receive a message that this year they won't have any free appointments :(

Well, I'll try asking if I may go to another barber, take the hair and bring it to them to buy it, since your conventional barber won't buy it :P
I hope this is working so I can finally can get rid of my long hair, a plan I had over 1.5 years ago :S

Paramedical course

I went to a paramedical course for... well I have no idea what the US pendant is, but I'll get a batch with the Rod of Asclepius to put on my jacket soon (via Velcro, not by stitching :P).
I've spend 3 weekends for this, meaning 6 days from 8:30 to 17:00. These were the official times, so not taking stuff like staying up, getting there, overrun a bit (well, mostly it was just a bunch of minutes) and getting back home into account.

On the last day, there was a theoretical test and a practical test. Those who passed were to getting a certificate... every one but me got one ;_;
I did pass the tests, but someone screw up and forgot to bring my form or something. So I'll obtain it later via post.

I was actually planning on getting there by bike. The way's like 3km or something. But the first day I had to quit a bit earlier for theater play at school, so my mother drove me so I can get faster to my school. A comerade of the local red cross-union offered to take me with him in his car for the remaining 5 days. Of course I accepted.
The last day however I didn't drive back with him. They were searching for a guy who could be driving a vehicle of the red cross back where it belongs and still get home easily. As I have my driver license and live like 200m further, I reported in for that.

Now this vehicle was the widest, and possibly even the biggest one, I've ever driven. I was quite worried scratching parked cars or planted trees or hitting some contraflow, but everything worked fine. In hindsight is was a nice experience and quite fun.

And I also wanted to explain the Panzels-post. So when I finally got home on sunday, I thought "I gotta get out of these pants", because the red cross-pants I tend to build up their own high-humidity atmosphere. And for the lulz of corruption I thought "pantsls" (or something sounding alike). Then I thought that this sounded like "pencils" and somehow I got to the word "pretzels", which in combination with "pants" would actually result in "pantzels".

So, later this evening I was talking to a friend, who wanted me to test if his website works. I wanted to go to sleep, but I was friendly enough to wait to test it. I was bored and asked him what the result of "pants" + "pretzels" would be, the answer being pantzels of course. Before pointing out, that this sounds like pencils, I was thinking that "pencils" + "panzer" would also equal "pantzels", so I told him that and assured him, that the government was behind this.
Because I still had to wait, I decided to blog it.

Yeah, I get like this when I'm tired.

Pants + Pretzels = Panzels
Pencils + Panzers = Panzels
What the fuck ;_;

I'm tired, I'm going to sleep.

Busy weekend

Time to make myself useful and write a post again.
Last weekend I had a full schedule:

Friday - School (morning to noon), paramedical service (noon to afternoon), school theater (afternoon to night), sleep (night to morning)

Saturday - paramedical education (morning to afternoon), school theater (afternoon to night), sleep (night to morning)

Sunday - paramedical education (morning to afternoon), paramedical service (afternoon to early night), some free-time, sleep (night to morning)

And well... then school again. I really was jumping from event to event without any free time but about one hour before going to bed to check my mails and replying to some forum posts.
Therefore I know that I spend my time well. Yay :]
