Holy Birthday

I know the law of birthdays is like, super holy in Germany, but I always forget how sacred it can be...

It's Time

Trying a different style out. While this is slightly truer-to-life depiction of me, I actually do have a nose in real life.

Scholle Satt

It was G's dad's birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday Martin!

How am I supposed to speak this language when even the Germans get it wrong?!

Hard to believe this was me two years ago. Definitely happy to be on the other side this time around.

Tuck it in

But it keeps my tummy warm...

Lazy 2.0

Sorry for the lack of updates -- it was a very busy last week of the semester! G and I had actually made plans to go relax at the sauna but we couldn't even bring ourselves to leave the house. I've vegetated all day today so now I'm feeling somewhat rejuvenated though!

Didn't someone once say something about a messy desk being the evidence of a creative mind? No? Okay.

Answering the phone à l'allemande

The rules for writing good, concise, German emails also apply when you're answering the phone. I learned this pretty quickly (and early on) because the long, confused silence that followed my "How are you?" was too painful to endure.
