________________________________________________________

My name is Patricia and I call Düsseldorf in Germany my home. I work as a project manager in IT services. I am a booknerd, daydreamer, fangirl at ♥ and a slytherin.

Next to spending time with family and friends, I enjoy music, cooking, reading and most of all travelling. I love to get to know different cultures and languages - that's why I spent a year in Michigan as an exchange student and I loved it. In fact I loved it so much that I went back to the US for a semester abroad during my bachelor studies and attended Arkansas State University (Go Red Wolves!). I have seen many places, but there are so many more on my bucket list. My favorite travel memory is walking the Camino in Spain. I started with my mom in St.-Jean-Pied-de-Port and we ended up in Santiago de Compostela a month later. It was an amazing experience for sure. We also walked the Caminho Português, partially the Camino del Norte and went a bit further by reaching the end of the world (Finisterre).

Speaking of the end of the world. Now I got IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT by R.E.M. stuck in my head. In Germany we actually have a word for songs that haunt you, which is "Ohrwurm" (earwig). So at least you know now that there is a word for it, while you are probably also listening to the song in your head.
When you have a song stuck in your head, do you actually hear it as if it was on the radio or are you somewhat singing the song to yourself? I always have to listen to songs in my lovely (well, not so much) voice, when I have an Ohrwurm. Even the instruments are "sung" by me.
