Just watched the "Goodbye Michael" episode of The...
Probs shouldn’t have watched that right before I go out with everybody for the last time and say bye. Darn you Steve Carell!!!
Dinge Ich Liebe - Jewish History
Last night I went to my first Jewish service, specifically for Shabbat. My wonderful friend Amira arranged for some friends on my program to go to services at the Neue Synogoge and then have Shabbat dinner afterwards. It was not only interesting to finally go to services, especially considering how many Jewish friends I have in Berlin and even more so at home, but the Neue Synagoge has a lot of...

Read the first couple of profiles. I, for one, can’t stop. But I’m an International Studies/potential Human Rights major nerd. Or just read it all.

3 and a half months of movies I’ve never heard of? gold mine
The Royal Wedding was today? Seriously, who gives...
Nobody in Germany, that’s for sure. But maybe it’s just because I don’t watch the news here. Wouldn’t have known if i hadn’t seen the fb status of whatever poor person felt it necessary to wake up that early in the US and watch it live. Guys, we aren’t English. And you’re not going to marry a prince.

There are some Columbia people that better show up in my life really soon. Screw your schools and jobs. I miss you guys. and I should probably turn off this playlist :) BUT HOLY CRAP. EMMA AND I NEED TO FINISH ARE WORK AND GET OUT OF THIS ROOM. There are too many people I’m not ready to say goodbye to yet.

My professor will love my exam
For a slide comparison showing a picture from a movie and something I clearly didn’t know: “Honestly, I’m not even going to BS this one. I think the bottom right is a picture from Bladerunner showing a creepy futuristic city? I can’t really be that creative on this one” That was horrific.
Things I didn't do before I moved to Berlin...
I’ve only worn jeans once this week? Ew.
princesamwise asked: How's Europe? :)
So this is what it's like having internet after...
Good thing this didn’t happen until the end of the semester. And good thing it happened when I had shit tons to do for finals.
Two Exams done. Two Papers done.
One more of each to go.
Sitting in Emma's apartment at 2am.
Working on a papers/projects. Missing the solidarity of campus-wide finals at UD. My host just called me in what sounded like a sleepy daze asking “lebst du?” aka “are you alive?”. eh. Maybe?
Dinge Ich Liebe - Cafes
So yeah, obviously I’m a cafe rat now seeing as I generally attempt to be in my apartment as little as possible. But still, I love these random privately owned cafes filled with weird, interesting people. They give me a really great place to get work done (or attempt to do so). I love that they are everywhere here. I also love that they generally have pretty good food, beer, and legit fresh...
ahhhhh, the comforting feeling of failure.
I’m just never happy after a final.
One paper done tonight!
Two more papers, Three more finals, then done entirely. Yay for paper parties with Holly and Chelsey at the cafe. Which is blasting Madonna. Freaking exhausted after a busy weekend. So excited not to go back and sleep in a hostel.
From my smelly room in a moderately sketchy Munich hostel. Just got back from Salzburg and leave for Berlin in the morning. Should’ve charged my phone before I left because it’s only lasting 5 minutes for Internet. That in mind, this post is to say: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life....
Somebody wake me up when we get to Munich
Because of course we had to book a 6:45am flight to Munich, we are basically just staying up all night so we don’t miss our flight. 90s party at Fritz club, flight to Munich, train to Neuschwanstein, sneaking into a Hostel because I couldn’t book a room with everyone, Munich for the day, Salzburg (Austria) for Easter Sunday, flying back to Berlin on Monday and writing 3 term papers. ...
Turns out Finals suck no matter what country...
Finals, Ich will dich im Gesicht zu stanzen.

Dinge ich liebe - restaurant culture
Just met a family friend of my host, who is a college student in Vienna, and got dinner. Basically a blind date set up by her mom and Julia haha. Sat outside for two and a half hours talking and didn’t leave till the place closed. I love that you can sit at a restaurant for hours and no waiter will ever bother you. Going to miss not being rushed from your table.
Dinge Ich Liebe - SchockoCroissants
I love that no matter where I walk or what kind of hole in the wall store I wander into, I can find a chocolate croissant/butter croissant for breakfast. Bakeries. I will miss you. EMMA RICHARDS. You can make fun of me for posting on Tumblr, but you just strolled into class 25 minutes late claiming your washing machine broke. Lies, I just watched my Dashboard blow up with your 30 reblogs.
alittleboyinspain: angry i didn’t get this internship i really wanted. can’t do another summer without work! aargghhhh freaking out about da future please someone help me find a job Oh hey real life that I’m 100% avoiding for the next 17 days. You make me freak out. Go away.
Dinge Ich Liebe - Things I Love Series...
In honor of my last two weeks in Berlin (and of current procrastination - Madeline and Anna FTW), I’m going to start jotting down things about Berlin/Europe I enjoy for later reference. Dinge Ich Liebe……Weißbier. Wheatbeer is great and is a Bavarian (southern Germany) specialty. I hope they make this in the US.
This thing has service here?
“schöneberg bar crawl” tonight. But come on, it’s a Sunday. How far did you think I would get? By far most confusing part of the night was charging my iPhone when I got back and suddenly, for the first time in months, getting a text from America aka Sasha Nader. Miss you!! Less than three weeks until free texting? Free communication = cultural readjustment.
Too early to choose the official summer song?...
2am? At least 2 hours earlier than last night. Win. This bench just collapsed while I was responding to a message. Eff you Oreos I had for breakfast.

Sometimes I think I freak people out
with how talkative and energetic I am even if I don’t know them. Went to a presentation with my Econ class and there were some students there from Stanford in Berlin. Potentially those three cups of coffee I consumed made me a little more extroverted than normal? Psh whatever. Econ in-class exam=DONE. Beautiful weather=Biergarten! Good thing I got so much work done yesterday when it was...
