today's christmas eve! yay! not that i'm religious or anything, in fact i'm atheist, but it's just nice anyway. it's a bit strange without my family, but i've got moto, so that's ok. we tried to find each other some presents and we gloriously failed. we even had some ideas and also searched the whole city back and forth, but since we both wanted to have a perfect present, we now ended up not having anything. haha.
this week i had a job interview at shimada design, whom i had applied to months ago and who i also met in frankfurt at an exhibition they had designed (less and more - dieter rams). my boss called them last week and told them about me and so i went there on tuesday at 8 pm (strange time). we could communicate thanks to a volunteer interpreter, since they don't speak english. it went really good, and they said even though there was the communication problem, they still would like to employ me somehow, maybe part-time. woooooh!! i hope it'll work out. and they gave the catalogue of the exhibition in germany to me as a present. :)

and this morning on my way to work there was this guy feeding gulls on a bridge at doutombori river:
