Mountain`s top


Last weekend I was in the Alpes and today I'll share all these moments with you.
Maybe you know that I'm a total amateur with the snowboard and it need a lot of practice until I'll drive like I want.
Therfore I decided to take the chair lift after having paid my ski pass. It have taken its time until the finish. At the finish line I have been relaxed because in another ski - area I'd already had a lot of practise with it. Nevertheless I didn't recodnice that I had to alight and than suddenly the ground was lower than one meter before. The result was that I was falling out the chair lift and had tried to be an acrobat so that the chair wouldn't hit my head.
Subsequently somebody told me this piste was a black one. For a beginner the best (not).
Another memorie I had at the button lift. It's really difficult for a beginner to go by them on top. Especially for a snowboard beginner. It needed around one hour to go on the top, because I plunged frequently out of it. Sometimes I had to walk down or ride down when the piste is beside the button lift.

If anybody read this and had experienced a simular situation with a lift , please write a comment. 

Furthermore I was at the mountain's top. The feeling to be the hero over the landscape was amazing and the view either. When I was sitting there beside the summit cross, I had plenty of time to order my thoughts. Thinking about the past, the present and what will happen in the future reminded me that the landscape is a part of our lives.

The moment when you are at mountains top 
and have a fantastic view. 
It's like the alpes represent your life 
with deeps and tops. 
In the distance something special,
 nobody knows what will happen 
and in front of you one challenge.

I think that little text could be a nice quote for this special moment in the alpes. I invented that while I was sitting there on the mountains top with its descent to vale as challenge for this moment.

Every point counts!

I've finished my first semester out of 4 senior semesters. I read that in the USA students from the 12th grade are called seniors but it's there the last grade before college or university. Here in Germany it's a little bit different, we have grammar schools (here called Gymnasium) they takes until grade 12 and 13. There is a big differencial between the single schools.Do you want to know more about the education system in Germany?

I already told you that I'm going to a vocational grammar school and why I've choose that school. Click here and read more about it.

Last year I was in year 11 and today's year 12 but my higher education entrance qualification will be in year 13. It's the graduation here in Germany which that you are able to study at University or college. Nevertheless I like to call these two years 12 and 13 senior year, because they are important for my graduation.

Last year we've got marks between the numbers 1 and 6. One was the best and six the worth. This year the grading changed a lot. In every test you are writing you can reach 15 points if you are good enough. The skale is between 0 and 15, the more points the merrior.

Hence the points will be count for every single subject and divided by the number of test. The result is than your subject points in this semester. However sometimes your points you reached in a test can change your whole points a lot.
I was really good in sports until the last performance where I only reached 5 points, so sports fall down to 9 points although I've had another performance with 15 points.

All your points from every semester will be count. That will be one part of your graduation grade. You can reach in every semester 150 points, so all in all for this part 600 points. The other 300 points you can reach with writing 5 exams.
It's really importat to reach points because one point can decide about everything. One point less than 5 means that you failed when you have more fails than liced, you won't have the graduation.

In this semester I reached 87 points out of 150 and admintally I'm not pleased with that result. Hopefully I'll learn the next semester more than now.
Do you also have your grading in points and are you pleased with the semester result?

Hello 2017!

 How could I start my first post in the year 2017? I mean I have been ill since 31st December 2016, so my start into 2017 wasn't that a dream. Today I'm better and decided to write a little bit about my goals and wishes for 2017. 

2016 is in the past but the memories we undergoed influence our present, today the 4th January 2017 and the future. Everything will be one time in the past, tomorrow the present day will be history. 
Like Budda said: 
Do not dwell in the past, 
do not dream ofthe future, 
concentrate the mind
on the present moment.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment

He has been absolutely right, we can only archieve something when we do it and we are capable to do it in the present. Think about this quote, in my mind it's really wise.

I've reading the goals I wanted to archieve in the year 2016. Admintally they were me, nevertheless I couldn't do every. The most I also want to do this year as well, but I'll list there here either.

1. Save money. One year ago my main problem was that I've spent to much money on unless things and have them twice, this payment behaviour I improved the last year. Every months there were a little sum which I could save. So I've got around 500 euros available for spending into point 2. 

2. Remodel my room. I have this furniture since I can think. My parents say they bought this room when I was around two years old. In my opinion it's time for something new.
The monentary I've already spared wouldn't be enough for reform there everything but it's a good inception. Furthermore to save money furniture could also be bought in a second hand shop or on several internet platforms where humans sell things they need no longer. There I'll buy a study desk. 

3. The more structure project is still working in my life. It's working better than in 2015 but not by a long shot structured.

4. Participate in a marathon. That's such a silly goal, because for years I want it but the motivation to go jogging wasn't that big. Nevertheless in september I started running because of points for sports performance. Before training it was horrible and afterwards fantastic. My motivation is here, one light after a dark tunnel. So I hope this goal will be archieved this year. Wish me lots of luck.  

5. Have fun by trying new things. I love to try things, food or sports. This year I would like to improve my snowboard skills  ( I could be a perfect person for a comedy show in that case). Furthermore my aim of tries is about a billiard play, drive a wakeboard, make something out of wood and the list is a lot more longer.

6. Learn in school. Every year the same goal. In the end I hope I'm not the only one who will never archieve this goal like this human wanted. So it's one more time a point for this archievement list. 

7. Have an amazing project paper. This year I'm able to write one about the history of the University in my hometown. It's pretty interesting but hard work, of course. The best thing is that which that I could cancel one exam for next year's graduation. That's the reason for why it is necessary to have a high points range. 

8. This point is about blogging. There are a few things I would like to reach. One thing out of these is something where you can help me: my dream is it to reach 3500 pageviewes at all in my whole blog history. The second point is that I'll try to be more professional, so that increase regular posts and interesting themes. If you have ideas I can do better, please write that to me. Every feedback is welcome. 

9. Read books. I'll make a list with all books I'll read  2017. I think the list would be as long as toilet paper, so that there will be another post with the listed books. Have you books you can suggest to me? 

10. Maybe a silly point but one you are able to archieve in every side of view. Make it the best year 2017 in your life. We humans doesn't have a timemachine, so it's possible. 

I wish everybody a wonderful remaining year 2017!
