Sorry everybody that I haven’t posted anything on here for a while. Unfortunately, my internet stopped working for some unknown reason last week, and it still hasn’t been fixed. Hopefully this weekend, that will be changed. Since I’m here, I better tell you what has been up since last time I posted. Besides my internet not working, all my normal classes started last Monday; all of them in German. Surprisingly though, I understood approximately 70-80% of the lecture. Of course because of this revelation, I went into my next Personality Psychology class with great confidence. Come to find out throughout the entire lecture, I had no idea what the professor said. Fortunately, I have a tutoring session for all my classes to go through what was presented in class in English, and believe me, it helps. Other than attending lectures and tutoring sessions for 18 hours, 4 days a week, not much has happened. Hopefully, I will provide you with some more interesting content in the close, upcoming future. Thanks for your patience.
So yesterday morning, I started German classes. Apparently, I tested into the B1 class which is the second highest German class that the school offers. Because of this, I can officially attend classes in German! (phew). After our terribly long 3 hour class, I walked to the Döner restaurant for Döner Donnerstag. Those things are incredibly delicious. Other than that, I just hung around with my peeps: Andrew and Stewart and Leah. Tonight though, I’m very excited for. Why do you ask? Because it’s karaoke night,, that’s why. Talk to you all tomorrow.
Today, I slept… A lot! Until 1:30 in the afternoon! Considering I went to bed at 9:30 the night before, I had 14 hours of sleep, and for some reason, I was still tired! I was awake for 27 hours straight, so it maybe it shouldn’t be so shocking. After I had a nice breakfast consisting of bread coated in Nutella and strawberry jam, Mother and Daughter Pfingsten took me to Wiesbaden where Oliver and Caroline go to school. Since it was going to be the capital for the US Military during WWII, it was untouched by the war and still has its older buildings intact including the Lutheran church. Although the church isn’t as old or as fancy as the Catholic Cathedral, it was still fascinating! We walked around and saw the theater as well as the foot market. Afterward, we ate at a Mexican restaurant, because Carol was leaving for Kansas tomorrow morning. It is her favorite restaurant, and I had my first Mango Daiquiri there (can I say YUM!). Now we are home and sitting around the living room with Oliver’s family drinking a Latte and Jagermeister! Enjoy the photos while you wait for the next post! Gute nacht!,
Here it is everybody! The moment you have all been waiting for! Well, me in particular! I have finally arrived in Frankfurt, Germany on time surprisingly considering my plane bound for Philly arrived an hour late. Any minute later, they would have left me behind. Fortunately, it’s all done and over with, and have arrived safe and sound with a bit of fatigue. Although since my flight was late, my baggage won’t arrive here until tomorrow morning which is certainly a bummer. Good thing I packed some in my carry on! (Always be prepared. Boy Scouts motto!) Despite the fact that I am completely tired from my long flight, I still found myself speaking impressive German to the baggage claim lady asking about my luggage. Seems like I didn’t lose it all completely over the summer! Just waiting for my friend Oliver to pick me up at the airport at 12:30! I just can’t believe I’m finally here! What a dream come true!!!
