Finally some time for blogging

 

Since my last entry, a lot of time has passed and a lot of stuff has happened. I hope my faithful readers are still with me! Here goes a summary of the last 2 months.

 

October

So you pretty much know the story of all that happened in October. I stayed in sunny California for 5 weeks, visited San Francisco a couple of times and worked at the Valley Fair Mall. It was an exciting time and I gained a lot of friends. Thanks to the wonders of E-Mail and Facebook, we stay connected.

But before and after I went to California, I stayed in New York City for the weekend. Since my flight to and from San Francisco International both went through Newark Liberty, I said to myself: “Hey, why don’t I take the plane a few days earlier (on my way in), respectively hop off the plane and stay for a few days longer (on my way out)!” So I spent two wonderful weekends in NYC together with my heaven-sent Angel who keeps amazing me every time I see her. On one day, we took the train to Beacon and visited the Dia art gallery there. You can see the photos here. On other days, we went to a party, saw Margaret Cho at the Radio City Music Hall, went to the movies, and saw a crazy show called Fuerza Bruta, which was simply mind-blowing. And of course we spent countless wonderful carefree hours together. In three simple words: I ♥ NY.

 

November

As soon as I got home, I started working at the Apple Store Glattzentrum, at that point the only Apple Store in the German speaking region. I must say, I think I found the job I was made for. The job I was born for. This might sound strange considering the fact that I only just turned 24, but at least for now it feels so right, it’s like I turned my hobby into my profession.

Not much more to tell you about November. Except that I bought Guitar Hero 3 (maybe I should have bought Guitar Hero 4 right away, but I settled with getting that later maybe as a Christmas present to myself).

 

December

And now, I’m in Munich, where the second Apple Store in the German region but at the same time the first Store in Germany itself opened on Saturday, December 6, at 10 AM.

IT WAS AWESOME. Simply amazing.

We were sent here as reinforcements to this flagship store at the Marienplatz, which is pretty much the heart of Munich (the Store itself is called Rosenstraße). We arrived on Friday and helped in getting the store ready for the grand opening, and then on Saturday, we were actually there inside the store and part of the team, cheering and clapping like crazy, welcoming and high-fiving the first visitors. I have never seen such a happy and cheerful crowd before, and have never felt so cheerful myself.

If you have never been to an Apple Store opening before, either find out where the next one is gonna be, or search for “Apple Store München Eröffnung” on YouTube.

 

So to sum it all up (trying not to sound not to much like an Apple fanboy): New York is the most exciting city in the world, even more because the most beautiful person on earth lives there, and working for Apple is simply great. Now if I only could combine those things and bring them together all in one place… rest assured, I’m working on it.

 

Stay tuned and may the Force be with you!

Advertisements

Concerning the new Microsoft ads

So Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld.

They make a great team if you ask me. The ads make absolutely no sense, and most people will agree with me on that. But they’re funny! Just the fact that Bill has a Shoe Circus Platinum Member Card is hilarious. And it has that super-old photo of him on it! I mean come on! If you’re a g33k like I am, you totally lol when you see that.

And the second ad, it’s so random, it makes you go o_0 but it’s so funny! At least that’s my opinion.

Whether the ads will make Vista sales go up or not, doesn’t matter to me. I’m sticking with OS X anyway, and hey, and least it’s good entertainment. And it’s free! Well it’s advertisement, so of course it’s free. OK some of you might point out that in the end, advertisement makes you buy stuff, makes you spend money, so in fact advertisement is not free! WRONG! Just don’t listen to the advertisement. Look at it as I do: free entertainment.

In case you haven’t seen the ads yet, here they are:


By the way: this counter-proofs that YouTube is not full of crap after all.
On the other hand, maybe it is. But at least some crap is funny.
