I had a lovely weekend including a festival (live music, petting zoo, bouncies, real pizza, etc.), BBQ at my former neighbors place (it was so much fun that I spontaneously spent the night), lots of brainstorming and improving of my application documents (Thank you Mike! You are the best!), went to a ballet-show and started watching LOST & DEXTER. Can't believe that I have only been here for a week. It feels like home already.

I keep hearing that you can "wash your hands" by using hand sanitizer. Oh well, I still prefer to get the "real" clean feeling of washing my hands the old school way with water and soap :)
