When I left the office this afternoon and went to the university library to get some textbooks for my termpaper I was highly motivated to continue to work on said paper tonight. Somehow that motivation vaporated on the way home though and was replaced by some strange lightheadness and dizziness. Not just like a low blood pressure, but also low on blood glucose. Self-diagnosed hypoglycemia ;-) Well, at least that’s the first thing that came to my mind, and it wouldn’t be a surprise because I ate and drank way too irregularly today. And I’m not sure if chocolate really is the best way to treat this ;-) I’m exaggerting, I know.
Looking up the right english term for “Unterzuckerung” at wikipedia at least taught me a new english term: “brain fog” (=cognitive dysfunction). I honestly can’t think of a german equivalent at the moment. Brain fog is pretty accurate for this state of mind. Not that I’m suffereing from a cognitive dysfunction right now (or if, it’s a very mild one), but I guess we’ve all been there once, wether it’s because of a lack of sleep or hormones or a heat wave…
I actually wanted to write a longer post about some new (or newly discovered) TV shows, music and more, but I’m not quite feeling up to it. So I’ll keep it short.
I’m still very much enjoying the Outlander audiobooks, because they don’t let me skip over things like I might have done if I had read the books again. While listening to the audiobooks I come across parts of the storyline or events I have already forgotten. It’s like discovering the whole Outlander universe all over again and it’s such a pleasure.
I’ve spent the last two evenings with Sherlock. Yes, Holmes. But the modern one from the new BBC series and I absolutely fancy him. The second episode wasn’t quite as fantastic as the first one, but still a lot of fun to watch. Why can’t the publically owned TV stations in Germany produce TV series / movies like this ? *sigh* I also started watching “The Big Bang Theory” and totally love it. I have no idea why it took me a few years to actually start watching. But I’m sure I’ll catch up with all three seasons until the start of the next one in September.
And I actually also had a few thoughts about some music, but I guess that has to wait until tomorrow. I still want to watch White Collar tonight and doing laundry and other stuff kept me occupied most of the evening.
