Minutes before going to bed I read that Heath “BrokeBack Mountain” Ledger died – devastating!

Perez Hilton writes:

At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, police said.

The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger’s bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious.

They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they did not suspect foul play and said they found pills near the body.

Read the Google News on his tragic death. He was only 28 – 5 years my junior! It’s been a while that Academy Award winners died that young.

Life’s a to-do-list

Again today I am lacking the inspiration for a blog post. There are many many things on my to do list today – some of which are related to the fact that I submitted a proposal for a doctoral thesis yesterday. I am now looking for ways to fund myself – either as being self-employed or by taking on a part-time position (one may not work more than 20 hours a week to be able to enroll as a doctoral student in Austria – but thankfully, and as of January 2008, one may simultaneously receive unemployment benefits and pursue one’s studies).

EDIT: It seems as if this 20 hour rule does not apply in Austria, it’s a Germany thing (where there are special types of contracts and tax models for students).
