Some buildings on the campus of the Università di Sapienza in Rome, Italy. They were built during the fascist era in Italy in the 30s.

I think they fit in quite well with the political ideology of the time because the architecture looks stark and functional at first glance, but is actually suffering from a seriously inflated ego…

The castle in Stuttgart, Germany.

 

I was reminded that I had these shots when I watched The Avengers in my habitual after-work coma. I could easily fix myself some dinner during the first thirty minutes without missing any crucial information. Anyway, there are some scenes set in Stuttgart. That really surprised me because Stuttgart usually isn’t among the top ten of the coolest European cities – rightfully so. At least they have a baroque castle with a fountain.

I’m experiencing a little pre-Monday anxiety, so I really needed a window. These pictures remind me of me past and future vacation in beloved Rome.

Right at this moment, I’m enjoying the last beautiful minutes of a very relaxing Sunday, filled with nothing but sleeping late after an evening of wine and friends in the town square, then reading for an hour, getting a surprise visit from boyfriend, taking a walk through the breezy park at twilight, some TV and finally some dishes and loading the washing machine. Oh, and lots of eating in between. This day was pretty perfect.

I have to work tomorrow, and I’m not looking forward to it at all. I won’t be in my usual department tomorrow, which is men’s clothing in a department store.

Instead I’ll be helping in out in the young ladies’ department, where a group of insecure, perpetually ill-humored females works. With one exception, they all delight in taking out the ennui that marrs their dull lives on helpless (because inferior) university student interns.

There are a lot of us working there on on-call basis, because the job pays well, even though folding clothes and manning the cash register can be a tiny bit repetitive.

What can I say? I need the money. Whenever it gets really boring or annoying, I tell myself to remember the salary I’ll be getting. That’s my mantra.

What do you guys hate about going to work, and Mondays in particular?
