I’m quite literally begging her to do me a favour and take the shift I wasn’t supposed to get in the first place. Auuugh, I would just about do anything :(
ich vermisse dich… Also… “Ich bin das lebendige Brot, das aus dem Himmel herabgekommen ist, wenn jemand von diesem Brot isst, wird er in Ewigkeit leben und das Brot, das ich geben werde, ist Mein Fleisch, das ich geben werde fur das Leben der Welt” Jo. 6:51
I miss using l8banana… haha :P
So, I know I haven’t been updating here :( my bad. I hardly have time to write in my own personal journal :B ahh well, no excuses. Last time I updated was just before I left for Berlin and man oh man a lot has happened since then. Quickie update, I love this place but I can’t wait to go home. … I miss sushi a lot, my friends here aren’t fish eaters. They can’t stand...
I’m such a boring person :B well that and lazy… I need to go out more and spend more time with people. Experience more of Germany. :/ Langweilig.
Passive voice is ridiculous == Also, I wish I was more interested in history… Also, I feel like I don’t really know anything about linguistics… Yeah. I’m pretty sure CK and LR think I’m ridonculously idiotic :P Today was pretty usual. Met up with my tandem partner for lunch :) we were with LFRWKMDAG…(somehow we usually end up eating lunch together,...
Mondays are the same everywhere.. >< soooo tired :( Just a random thought.. I really want a German keyboard .. it’s really hard for me to type things with umlauts and eszetts. Blaaah. Word is okay since I can do umlauts but blaah. We barely had class today since we had to talk about Berlin. I’m really excited for it! Going to the Philharmonie, Konzentrationslager, some...
Today is Mother’s day! It’s also LJ’s bday and her family and bf came over. Definitely was anxious about having to be around deutsche Leute again especially since last night was overwhelming. It wasn’t too horrible, I’d say. I woke up a bit late but I arrive just as CJ started eating breakfast so I joined her. I said Happy Mother’s day around three times before...
Woke up super frueh this morning and walked to the Bahnhof. Gonna see some salt mines! :D The salt mines were pretty cool. I couldn’t really understand the guy talking though… luckily he didn’t talk too too much. We were on this truck this for the most part and the ride was very roller coaster-esque. Then our groups split up, one went on a Stadtfuhrung, one went to the Sprache...
So I asked LJ what “awkward” was auf Deutsch.. except I can’t remember so I have to ask again tomorrow >< Anyway because I asked, I told her that in Canada, we would say “awkward turtle” to point out an awkward situation. She loved it and she said that she would introduce it to her friends. WIN! :P She also thought it looked more like a whale because it only...
As much as I look forward to having no class.. I’m not quite sure I’m looking forward to weekends here :P Just because I don’t know what to do with myself. At home I’d work and then have meetings and then sleep the rest of the day away. Here, I want to go out and see things except it’s been pretty bad weather :( Anyhow, today after the break, the 400s and the 200s...
Okay, I seriously have never worked this hard for German before… it’s very ungewoehnlich ><
We had to draw this “comic” thing for a small scene in Adam und Evelyn… mine was horrible but it’s all good. It was better than discussing the stupid book like usual. Bleh, so I gotta finish writing my Tagebuch and then I have an Aufsatz to do for Monday. So much writing in German. I can’t believe how some people can blurt out words so quickly. I have to think over...
… also, why do I lose so much hair? Takes me longer to clean up after my shower than the actual shower itself.
I’m hungy… but I don’t really have anything to eat. I suppose that’s a good thing though. I have too much food at my fingertips at home.
3. Tag I think I’m gonna stop talking about how inadequate I am in class now. I think the whole world know how horrible I am :P Anyway, had lunch with a bunch of new people. Well not new exactly but different. LF gets tried of routine.. so she likes changing it up >< I am the complete opposite so we’ll see how it goes hanging out with her. I don’t know how but I ended up...
Second day is coming to an end :) Class was good. Everything “geht gut” according to us in CSSG, EVERYTHING. Except I think that’s usually the case: “How are you?” “Good, you?” “Good.” I feel very inadequate in class.. I don’t know how people can be so good at speaking and understand and so on…>< Don’t even start with...
Man, totally wishing I could’ve gone on the blending trip with everyone :B totally having a saints-withdrawal right now. I’m gonna try to go to Düsseldorf one weekend. Soon >< I’m really having fun here though. Being suspicious about teachers spying on us, waiting to give us eine Gelbkarte… and speaking in superdupermuch broken Deutsch.
Good idea ?
My mother just added me on facebook… I don’t wanna add her… whose idea was it!? Good grief.
"Germans love to walk"
Yep, it’s true. I haven’t walked so much in my life >< if I get fatter during this trip.. there’s something very wrong, especially with all the walking I’ve been doing.
Had our first day of class today :B we have a lesson book, a work book, and a grammar book.. they’re all really big and heavy. We went to Tor Cafe for our break and it was nice, I’ll probably end up doing some homework there after. After the break we had to talk about our novel… I hate literature. I can’t read >< or understand… not even in English. Good grief...
I was up at 5… and I didn’t do anything except break stuff >< until I was sure my host family was awake, which was at 10. Had a late breakfast, bread naturally. Today we spent most of the day at Oma’s. It’s only a 3-4 min. walk from where we live and it’s right by the supermarket so if I get hungry I can quickly make a trip there :) They keep asking me what I...
So.. I totally broke the pulley for the blinds here… crap. Es ist kaputt :( except I really wanna open it to see if I can tie it up again and fix it but my Gastmama says that I shouldn’t do anything to it. What a wonderful way to start the day .. and the rest of the time I’m here.
Uh.. I woke up at 5:00 >< but I had a nice, restful sleep… so yeah. I’m gonna be super tired by 21:00 though. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do with myself still. Gah, so supermuchies awkward.
I think that is mein Lieblingsdeutcheswort fuer jetzt. Sorry, I keep putting random German words/phrases in my post but it’s really hard not to because I have to be thinking in German the entire day. Sometimes when I’m typing here I feel like I’m putting English words in the German syntax structures (word order and stuff). So then.. what have I been up to since I left Canada?...
Immer auf Deutsch!
Liebe meine Freunde und meine Familie, ich muss immer auf Deutsch sprechen und denken. Deshalb habe ich immer ein Kopfschmez. Tut mir leid, ich hatte noch nicht hier geschrieben, weil ich kein Internet hatte. Ja! So, I’ve just met my Gastfamilie (host family) and we chatted for a bit. The mini-retreat-type-thing in Hann. Muenden was really good since we got to meet everyone in the program...
So, I’ve been doing the hashtag #upsettheworld for most of my trip related things. This idea originated from YL actually. It’s from Acts 17:6 where Paul and Silas were preaching the gospel in Thessalonica and the Jewish religionists were jealous because of the reception that they got from the people. Anyway, it’s a really good reminder to me about why I really wanted to go on...
Alrighty… all packed and junk. Hope I have everything with me. Don’t you just hate when you have that bad feeling that you’ve forgotten something? Yeah.. anyway. Really really really nervous/anxious/worried… etc. but it’ll be okay it’ll be fun :). My mama left last night and I was like …. nooooo mama don’t leave me :( I really wish I could bring...
Sorry guyzzzz… I don’t use tumblr very well :P SOOOO, you get the default bg and stuff. Nothing fancy. Just words and possibly some pictures once in a while.
Man's best friend...
My cousin found out a couple days ago that her dog died. Now, this dog was no where near old enough to die a natural death or anything so it was amajorshock. I know this wasn’t my dog but when I found out she died, my heart broke a little. For the past year, I’ve played with this dog once a week when my mother would go to my cousin’s house on campus to cook and clean a bit. She...
Oh tumblr, I know you don’t care but I’d like to tell you something since you’re here and all. I feel like everyone around me is so emo… or well, emo-esque… depressive - including myself. What’s wrong with us? And of course because we’re “cool like that” we write passive aggressive comments on twitter/fb to a ambiguous “you”. ...
Hello tumblr, I haven’t talk to you for a while… but now that I’m getting ready for the last final exam of the semester, I’m back. …
Not too long ago, I decided I wanted to use an agenda/planner this year to keep myself organized with dates…especially with work and school. I was too “lazy” to go look for one that I liked so I decided to make one. Stage one was brutally repetitive - making the layout. Stage two was excruciatingly frustrating - organizing (and re-organizing x384937498) the pages and finding the...
It boggles my mind how a person can be sooooooooooooooooooooooo two-faced. Seriously.
People keep asking if I’m tired and I keep telling them yes even though it’s not always true. Overall, I think I’m more upset or dissatisfied than tired.
So, I wonder… if something is “important” then I would assume it’s something you would not forget. But of course, as stupid humans, we all forget at one point or another; some more often than others (like me :P). Then I guess the main difference is between something that is “important” and something that is “important to you”. Funny how two little...
Dear Idiot Customer, Please realize that when you threaten to NEVER COME BACK AGAIN over a $0.25 charge (one I had no control over) because you’re a diabetic, it actually makes me relieved. Why you ask? Well it’s quite simple, I don’t have to deal with your cheap butt ever again. So, in conclusion, please do us both a HUUUUGE favour and live up to that threat. Actually, I...
I like hanging out with people I don’t normally hang out with because we’re not completely exhausted of our natural patience and we’re not extremely tired of seeing their face. I’m glad that that’s what happened today :) I expected it to be people I am usually with but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Even though our original plans weren’t fulfilled it...
I went to Innocent Coffee with CH today with the intention of going around W4th to look at snowboards. I already prepped myself for a huge hit on my wallet so it was all good. Went to the West Coast Sports and they didn’t really have anything cool so we walked down a little more to The Boardroom. There it was :D the awesomest snowboard ever. CH was like .. “Yeah, that’s...
Feeling kinda left out and out of place lately. Probably my own fault. Sucks.
pudding milk tea?
//edit: I’m considering putting all these on a different tumblr since the original idea of my getting a tumblr was to post my pudding milk tea adventures… except now this post is getting lost in the midst of all my ramblings :P I suppose there’s no time like the present to tumble some of my pudding milk tea adventures. Just a little background, I guess. I can’t remember...
back in business
Yay for brothers (especially ones who know how to fix computers)! So now I have my desktop back. Hehe :) and I don’t need to go and blow $500+ on a new computer. I guess that means my next purchase will be a guitar? :D Oh another note… I’m so awkward :P I don’t know how to talk to people. I had two girls from Emo, Ontario say at my place after SST and I really did not know...
I am by no means exempt from what I’m about to write but because I’m Judgey McJudgerpants-with-no-rights-to-but-I-still-do… well anyway… I think it’s funny when someone complains about someone being something. Recently, I’ve been noticing certain people calling others “self-righteous”, “selfish”, “stubborn”,...
Went to Aberdeen with PT and JL after work… (JM met up with us after). I really wanted a Viet sub so I got one… =_= I don’t think my stomach appreciated it. Stupid Aberdeen :( never get food there blaaaah. Anyways I really want sushi now. Rawr.
This post is going to be uberly jumbled. In fact, when I read back on it I probably won’t remember what I was referring to :P so here it goes… Hmm I guess it wasn’t so bad. I was definitely regretting going at first but really it was cool…except all the cancer that was being puffed into the air; yuck. Not to mention all the “skunks” running around; nasty....
I’ve recently gotten the inspiration to start writing a journal. Hopefully, it’ll be a consistent one. I have tried before but it didn’t last too long. I read through the short period of time I did keep a journal and man, I’m such a doof. Honestly, I can’t believe some of the things I wrote/said/did. Journals are a really good measure of how much growth has happened...
time well wasted
So I just found a link with all the episodes of Pokemon… good bye time. Things I want to take note of while watching: when voice actors change - ep.18 Ash when Ash catches a new Pokemon I want to make a list of when a certain Pokemon first appears… except that’s just too much work :P
in a pickle...
I wonder how anyone can enjoy work. Honestly, during my first year and a bit, it was fun but after almost two years, there’s nothing left to learn. It might also have to do with CB and MI being transferred, I really miss them. Someone asked me, “Is it that big of a deal that they got moved?” …now after four months, I can confidently say, “Absolutely, it changes the...
Oh dear, my computer seems to have broken down… ehhh I have no idea what to do with it.
What a bitter ending to two sweet weeks. It’s like one of those dark chocolate nibs that GL gave me; the outside was sweeter chocolate and the inside was bitter cocoa bit, in the end it left a bitter taste in the mouth. I know there’s a lot more dealing to be had but did it really have end like this? Now who knows when I can attempt it again. I just feel drained. Don’t know if I...
