Okay, so let’s get rid of November in style. Here’s the monthly recap of the last four weeks before the last last four weeks of two thousand and eighteen:

November felt like the cold and bitter side of autumn, no one likes to talk about.
Especially the last half of it.

I mean, nothing like the glorious, colorful, oh – look – how – beautiful – all – the – leaves – are – falling – down part of it.

Just the grey in grey, all – the – leaves – are – dead – and – the whole – world – looks – like – one – big – trash – yard kind of autumn.

I tried to stay alive, riding bicycles whenever possible and in the process, I put the dust of The Fluid , which may or may not be THE bicycle for the not so glorious three, four or five months of the year.

On a side note, I’m not commuting to work via bicycle for the next few months.
There’s too much dirt, gravel and salt on the streets … already.
It was barely cold in november, not even close to zero degrees.
But for some reasons, all the genius people in town decided to throw all the salt, they had in store, on the streets, roads and pathways, great job!

The Vinyl was not designed for conditions like this.
Maintaining the bicycle everyday after work in the dark was kind of cool for a few days, but eventually stopped being cool … a lot.

So now, I’m commuting to work on foot, which means, I’m now able to have breakfast on my way to work. How cool is this ?
Just a few more days and the lady at the cafè around the corner, will probably be awaiting me at the entrance, holding a large coffee and a chicken sandwich all ready for me to just grab … and pay of course … I’m not a sandwich thief!

However, the rest of the month was life on infinite repeat.

Sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work
Sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work
Sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work
Sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work
Sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep, eat, work

Sounds great? Well, welcome to the real life…
But that’s not the whole truth. In fact, I was a bit creative in november… sometimes at least.
For example, there’s a brand new blogpost about how I try to deal with reeeaaaally smart, generous and kind people in everyday life and traffic.
I wrote it as an Thanksgiving Special Blogpost, but to be honest, it’s a psychological experiment, so you better prepare yourself for some heavy science stuff…

The “Thank You” Theory

Also, I managed to catch some decent shots on my camera.
Here are some of them:

Now, it’s about time to get ready for christmas and the festive season.

Santa? It’s your turn now! Let’s make the last month of two thousand and eighteen the best of ’em all!

By the way, are ugly sweaters still a thing? They seem to be everywhere on the net, so I might have to get one too…

  1. Not into winter sports either? I really do feel like I spend most of fall/winter, waiting for it to pass, just thinking about summer.

    Blogging is a nice way of passing time, but I’m not really doing anything exciting, so I just talk about my thoughts.

    Have you decided to only post about cycling?

    1. Winter around here is just cold and muddy. It’s kind of hard to really get into winter sports, when you usually just see some snow for a handful of days a year…

      I started this blog as a “cycling diary”, where I used to only write about each ride, including numbers and stats.
      After a while, photography became a bigger part of the blog.
      Then, I stopped posting stats and numbers ( which was a whole lot of work…), to write some “stories” ( if you can call it like this…) in the first place.
      Right now, I like the blog the way it is, but I can’t definitely tell you, what it’s going to be like in a few months.
      But, I always appreciate some fresh ideas!

      Are you interested in different content?

      1. It’s your blog, do what you want with it. I’ll be blunt though: your bio needs work! It tells me almost nothing about you: I had no idea you were located in Germany until I asked! What are your other interests? What are you studying or what do you do for work? Do you have pets? Can you lick your own elbow?

        I know those who follow me for the cycling/bike-related content are probably bored with the posts I’ve made over the past 2 months. I get the most hits (by FAR) when I write about deaf stuff, but I’m not going to let that discourage me from writing about the other facets of my life.

        Anyway, don’t worry about what I want to read from you.
