Hello, Hello from the city of amazing food (no I am not talking about fish and chips!) but more like colorful rainbow(l)s and heavenly chocolatey desserts on your plate. So in case you haven’t seen my blog post almost entirely about the food here, make sure you check it out here.
So let’s go a little bit back. I successfully started my work at Google, which was so overwhelming and impressive that I struggled to do anything else besides eating and sleeping. So for those of you who don/t know this: The food at Google is free. And it is not just some kind of food. We are talking serious business: means: Fruit and Veggie station for self-made smoothies, vegan chocolate, sushi (every damn day!), vegan meals, fresh bread, coco cojo yogurt, Chia pudding….You name it.
As a balance to all the great food, I madly fell in love with the gym in the building. The view is phenomenal and there is nothing I enjoy more than to do my daily yoga sessions while watching over London. Besides, there are such great courses such as rainbow Yoga, Xtreme Body Camp (omg I died!), and Friday morning rave. It’s so much fun to move my body and getting into new activities, it definitely doesn’t feel like working out at all. If all the training goes well, I am thinking about participating in the UK marathon.
And besides that, we actually do a lot of work 🙂 Here’s what I learned the first day at Google: think long and hard before choosing to become an Intern. It takes 100 percent commitment. You have to be on your A game every time you walk into that building. People around you are so smart, it’s almost more impressive than all the free food!
Well, this first week was overwhelming, not only in a good sense but also in a very sad and gloomy one. I think it was while I was preparing my dinner when I got a call from home that my grandpa died. Everyone that has lost a loving person knows the feeling and the stages you are going through in such a moment. I don’t want to talk a lot about it but I also don’t want to blur the reality. The good the bad and the ugly things.
Welcome to my life.
Talk to you soon <3
