Week 23-24 04-17/07/2016 # Eating, Sleeping, Drinking, Swimming In Screenplays

– 5 min – Greetings from the ‘Mothership’! All is well on board and the weather is good. The food is tasty, a little monotonous however: evening, morning, noon, there is only one item on the menu.

Week 6 07-13/03/2016 # A First Review…Of The Journey

– 4 min – Well, it had become pretty clear to me that, as often, I tried to do too many things at the same time. It happens when I’m enthusiastic about things or topics.
