Chinese Zodiac Horoscope - How true it is?


Chinese Symbols :
Animal Symbol - The Dog

Element Symbol - Water

Ancient Symbol - The Eleventh

Dogs will never let you down, they are honest, and faithful, they put others first but often worry too much.

attentive, well meaning, helpful, warm-hearted, altruistic, modest, devoted, philosophical, dutiful, discreet, intelligent and enthusiastic
nasty, mean-spirited, disagreeable, bad-tempered, self-righteous, judgmental, quarrelsome, accusing, nervous, anxious and impossible to live with

General Description of All Dogs:
"Dogs can be a bit overwhelming, due in part to their attentive natures. They can march in and take control of a situation, even when it doesn't involve them directly. This can lead people to think Dogs are nosy or gossipy, but in reality, he just means well. Money and status don't matter to the Dog. He is more concerned with the welfare of his family and friends and will do whatever it takes to help them out of a tight squeeze or a rough spot. Once Dogs determine a subject of interest, they usually master that before taking off for a new adventure. They like to finish what they start. They are honest and trustworthy people, ethically strong and morally kept. They make loyal friends and companions."

Detailed Description of The Water Dog:
These Dogs have great foresight and are well-educated on many different things. This quality helps them appreciate other points of view, making them quite flexible and liberal. They are easygoing, but this can cause them to be too spendthrift with money and less loyal with friends. Still, because of their flexible natures and their ability to appreciate difference, these Dogs always have friends and are usually popular people.

Name analyser

Acording to some crap analysis reflecting my feelings and personality 'they' came up with this:


Stupid or what?

Romanians in HH

In September i went with Aurel ( the 2nd romanian from my uni ) to a romanian evening. It was my 1st one, Aurel's 2nd one. What brought me there? Most of it..the couriosity to see how are the romanians who live in HH, if they are high class or any other type of class :D.
The 'meeting' took place in a restaurant called 'Wappenhof & Dubrovnik'..
When we arrived, we saw something like 50 people there, different ages, different 'categories'. Some eating, some drinking, some laughing and a guy singing some romanian traditional music. The atmosphere was nice..
The bad part was i had a little cold, so i took only 2 cups of black tee. If i would hv know it will cost me a fortune, i would hv asked for a cup of water..tap water. Anyway i took some pics, had some small conversations with some of the people around there, the guys danced a little on 'perinitza' (national romanian dance) and at 11 pm we decided to leave the place and go to another party. Much more interesting than this one :D

Will it be a 2nd time?

Ostsee - Baltic Sea

Already 1 year gone since i am in HH.
Went twice to Lübeck ( Hansestadt Lübeck ) but never to the sea. Actually i never knew it was that close. When i told Lore ' hmm.. there is also the posibility to go to the Baltic Sea. It is close.' (without knowing where exactly it is) .. Me and my big mouth. :D

So.. we got used to this idea so we started searching for the way to get there. With short moments of adventure ( we thought we lost the ticket..and it was 'only 30euros'), i can say i never regret going there.
If i have to characterise it in 1-2 words: 'A different world'.

Again.. a selection of photos:

At the beginning presenting a little the city Lübeck.. for the architecture style that i like so much.

Holsten Turm - One of the towers garding the old city.
Great photo :D
City hall square.
A bronze devil sits on one of the slabs of stone used to build the cathedral. The legend says that he helped to build the church because he thought it was going to be a wine bar and when he discovered it was to be a cathedral he began to tear it down. The workers promised to build him a wine bar across the street. I didnt find it :D

And a short moment spent at the seaside. Maybe one of the reasons i liked it so much was bcs you couldnt find so many people at that time there. It wasnt only almost 7pm but also pretty cold. In spite of these 2 aspects we saw a man swimming. hmm...

Who can explain this? I refuse to think that :)))))))) . Women not allowed to swim?
Ok..I think it isnt that cold.
Deutschland ist für die Leuchttürme berühmt. Hier nur noch ein.

50m away from it.. every person felt pretty insignificant.

In center of the white area is Lübeck. Far east is Travemünde, where the sea beginns.. or ends.

For those who somehow will get there too.

Wildpark Schwarze Berge

I've chosen not to attach this story to the one about the visit of my childhood best friend bcs it is a nice one that deserves to be told separately.

As Lore asked me 1 month before coming here where are we going to go, what are we going to visit, i've started to look for nice places around HH. And i found this one: the wild park 'Schwarze Berge (Black mountains) '.
10 min by S-Bahn and another 10 by bus.

So, for the ones who dont know germ, there it is written: 'Here please dont feed the animals.'

On the hill, L got tired. And it was only the beginning :d

V V nice. My 1st time when i go inside the bat house. Dark but R caught them in the pic :D

Feeling free like the deers behind.

In the tower u could seen the view. A huge forest and lots of families of animals acting normal in a normal day (for them at least).
Can u jump? How long? I jumped like a rabbit :D
Is that good?

hehe. the animals, as people, love me. :D:D

Our friends, the ants, and their home. A huge one. But wth? In a wild park with a fence around it. Hmm.. I hv to admit it isnt the 1st time when i see this here in germ.

Swedish party-Communication problems

As the new students arrived, the parties have started.
(I will post randomly bcs of lack of time).

One of the parties was organized in my dorm in one of the Erasmus flat ( as people are used to call them, although they are students not only in Erasmus contingent ).
The organizing committee: 4 swedish students ( 2 girls and 2 guys).
Here are 3 of them and the 4th one in the 2nd pic.

But why did i want to mention this particular party.
Bcs of a conversation i had with 2 guys. The characters: K, A and M. Why was this conv for me funny?
K speaks with A in english. M doesnt know english. ( only basic )
K speaks with M in german. A doesnt know german. ( not yet at least :D )
A speaks with M in arabic or french. K doesnt know arabic ( only i think 3 words ) and can understand 5 out of 10 words in french.

How do we communicate? =))))))))))))))))))

Becoming famous ( Part 3 i think )

Location: Club LOVE ( nume sugestiv =)))) )
Date: 29.09.07

As i love to dance more than many other things i went with 2 good friends to Reeperbahn ( the famous area in HH with 'clubs', pubs (kneipen) and other things that may look interesting for some ) on a saturday night when you cannot get inside a place in a group. Even the bodyguards hv their preferences. :)
The owner of the place is a french guy. Now it explains why also the french people from last year liked this place. Ehh.. this would be one of the reasons.
The entrance is usually 8 Euros. Pretty much for a student life. On saturday ( i dont know if also on other nights) with a cuppon of 3 Euros you can get also a drink.
The music also not one of my favourites but i discovered i know how to dance on it :D
The stile: Electro House, Funky House, House, House, Soulful House, Vocal House ( as i have noooooo idea what is the difference between them :-s )

Inside lots of people. All types of people. It depends also on the theme of the evening.
On this particular night it was Gin Tonic party. I hv no idea why :D.
As also a fashion back home, there are some people ( pros??? ) who have to earn some money by taking pics of the people. As i agreed to appear in one pic ( usually i hate being in pics, i like only taking pics ), i looked for it a couple of days later.
Apparently at a certain moment the 'guy with the camera' started taking pics randomly ( was he bored ? ) so i've discovered another 2 pics of me.

Well, they are ok. fiuuuuuufff..
i mean they could have been worse :D

PS: pls notice the difference between the persons involved. hmm

Being involved in diff events

As an opportunity offered by the International Office in my uni and being lucky to be a key person around there (as i like to believe) i had a chance to take part in an important event on the 22nd of September: the 75th bday of the president of a foundation that has connections to my uni.

A nice experience.

And as the people involved were satisfied with our work, we will take part in another activity in Nov. :)

What can one give to a person who has let's say almost everything? Hard to find something.

A picture of the official photographer of the event

Visit of another good friend

After the time spent with Lore and Radu another good friend came to visit me, Stef, with her BF, Vlad. On their trip to Belgium they stopped for 2 days in HH, being brought here by Gigel, later discovered as Marcel, the best modern friend a person could have ( i hate him/it for not letting me earn money. I love being a guide :D ). Unfortunately, because of some unpleasant incidents regarding my dorm, they couldnt stay one more day.
I really hope they had a very good time here and that they understand it doesn't depend on me.

I am grateful i have the chance to see my friends from home. I am still waiting for a weeding to be forced to go home. :D
Kiddddddddddin' guys :-s

The name on 3 lines. The design klasse. The taste hmm... The place the best in Harburg.

As i said.. love playing the guide role.

Stef & Vlad. Great to see u guys.

The visit of my childhood best friend

My childhood best friend (L) payed me a visit at the beginning of September.
Except some small incidents and obsessions/paranoia (better to exaggerate in being caution than to get caught without a guard) the time spent with her and her BF (R) was truly nice.
I got to visit some new places and i am grateful for that. To mention are. Wildpark Schwarze Berge and the Baltic See. But i wouldnt forget to mention also the trip to Berlin and the time spent here in HH. It is nice to play the guide. Even when sometimes you think you know the city, you can still discover new things that maybe make you like it (more).

People say that HH is better than Berlin. It is in a way unique not only in architecture but also from the life and surprises that one can live each day. Anyway i will let those people with their idea and still stand by mine and say Berlin is truly one of the best cities in D.. at the moment my 2nd favorite city here.

We took thousands of pics. Too bad i cannot put them all here. Not even all ones that i like. I tried to make a selection and here it is:
