Ahhh don’t want to leave Berlin/really quite in love with this guy I met/and we saw the Hunger Games in German tonight and going to an opera tomorrow together.. but I leave literally on Sunday. That soon. Super torn between looking forward to being home/seeing family and missing the unique experiences of my semester abroad and the people I’ve met.
Last week in Berlin :(
Skipped studying for finals for a few hours to see the beautiful Philharmonie tonight for a concert and the Weinachtsmarkt am Potsdamer Platz. So wishing I could stay here just a bit longer, it’s been a great semester in Berlin.
“Spend your life doing strange things with weird people.”
this is a very good description of my semester in Berlin really. half the time we wander around Mitte while one of my friends acts as our bear tour guide whenever anyone says phrases like “bear in mind/bear right..”

Notes of Berlin!
Instead of a final test at the end, my German class in my study abroad program gave 20 min. presentations on a topic of Berlin culture. Yesterday I gave mine on street art and specifically the art project on the internet called “Notes of Berlin” that collects all the romantic/inspiring/angry/just for fun notes people post around Berlin. At the end we made our own and posted them outside our class building!
My personal favorite is the red: Ruf mich an :) Meine Nummer: 101
Today definitely started off right when I made plans with the guy I’ve had quite the crush on during this study abroad program to have dinner and see a play in German in Kreuzberg on Sunday :)
Reasons German is the most fun language:
building new words out of combinations of other words that surprisingly make sense when I try them in my paper
der Alltag, die Sprache: die Alltagssprache
gebildet, deutsch: deutschgebildet
