Yeah, I know, it's kind of lame for German speakers, but I couldn't help but freak out for half a second there!

Comforting Thought

I think everybody feels this way once in a while . . . but having a daily blog helps.

Winter Run

We've started to hit the negatives in Berlin. Brr! Winter really isn't the best season for bespectacled runners. (ps. The featured scarf is the one that my Asian head is too big for...)

Not Popeye

I don't think I've ever met anyone who grew up in a houseboat before. It might not be as romantic in reality as I imagine it to be, but it's pretty darn cool all the same.

Friday Night In

And this is why it's nice to be an adult. If I were a kid I'd probably get in trouble for drinking gin and tonic and eating junk food for dinner.

Art School Stereotype

I made this comic during my 8:30 anatomy class. And yes, lots of smokers at my school. It's funny to see everybody simultaneously bust out their rolling paper as soon as it's break time.

Runner's Nirvana

Et voila, and my mind was suddenly clear and I could organize the thoughts in my head. Nice.

(dis)orientation and (hoch)schultüte

Went to orientation day at my school and got disoriented. I guess I'll just wing it and see what happens...

And after my orientation, awesome G surprised me at home with an (hoch)schultüte! First graders've got nothing on my big-girl Schultüte!

First day of actual classes tomorrow!

First-Day-of-School Angst

I has it. Also, I am exhausted from the flea market today. But it was a success! Hooray!

Wish me luck tomorrow!

Sleep Laughing

Woke myself (and G) up a couple of times last night from my own sleep laughing. I also caught myself sleep bawling (and woke up the next morning with puffy eyes) a few nights ago. What's wrong with me?

Business Casual

...with an emphasis on casual.

This anecdote is actually from a while back, when G started his job. I remember arguing with him for some time before he somehow convinced me that (dark) jeans are okay for work. I just couldn't get my Japanese head around it.

Half Marathon: Done!

A special thanks to MM & K for their awesome support! My time was 2:08, and G's was 1:31. Whoop whoop!

Not Dutch

...and here I thought I could at least recognize Dutch when I heard it!

Happy 22nd Tag der Deutschen Einheit (German Unity Day)!
