‘Til Next Time

So I’m going through pictures on Facebook when I realize that I never officially ended this blog. In fact, I think I left a lot of things out, mainly Berlin, my birthday and the days leading up to my departure. But you don’t need to hear those. All you need to know, dear reader, if…

Thrills and solitary adventures.

Yes, yes, yes, I realize now that posts have become a monthly thing. So much so that I have lost a bit of my following (which was probably made up mostly of family. Is that cause for abandonment? Lol no I’m joking kbye…). And even despite my promises that I’ll try posting more frequently and…

Osterferien

Don’t hate me. Yes, yes, I know it’s been a while. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t have life-changing experiences everyday. I mostly just go to school. Just like you. Except, you know, in a different language. Although life-changing experiences do happen. ;) SO. Let’s get going. In Germany, or at least, in Baden-Württemburg, there…

Frühling kommt!!

Spring is coming!! It’s getting warmer (hopefully it will stay that way) and the birds are chirping, and I’m wearing less layers. WOO! And with spring comes new beginnings. :) So after some (a lot) gentle pushing (shoving) by my mother, I have started going to classes in the 11th grade (I used to be…

Tschüss, bis Morgen, schlaf gut!

So one of my friends left for home  today. I mean like back to his home country, and it’s got me thinking. Which is a really bad thing right now. But I’ll get to that later, because I have a story to tell. :D So me and my friend were on our way to our…

Faschingsferien

Yes, yes, I know it’s been awhile. Usually, long intervals between posts mean there’s really nothing especially special going on. But this time, I don’t know. I started writing the last one about the midstay camp we had during the last week of february, but I never got around to finishing it. I’ll give an…

Paris Looks Better in Black and White

Hey, it’s 2013! Weird huh? Years ago, all the science fiction books were saying that around this time, we’d have those flying car things and teleporting everywhere. Like a Back To The Future part 2 kind of thing. But we don’t have flying cars and we don’t teleport. We do have all these high-tech cellphones…

Frohe Weihnachten!

Hello readers! It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Not that I haven’t had time. I’ve just been lazy. Some things don’t change. But anyway (I’ve been officially banned by life to say the word “anyhoo”), sorry about that. I’ll try to be more constant from now on. :D So the last thing I posted was a…

Deutschland Eigenarten

That’s supposed to translate into “Germany Quirks”. Someone correct me if I’m wrong. Just things I’ve observed, things that confuse me, things that amuse me, things that I find strange. Just… things. I must note that this is from a Filipino’s perspective. Wer means who and wo means where. Nur means only and ohne means without. (It’s like they do…

Bonds

Someone told me that the best relationships you will have on your exchange year will be other exchange students. Currently, I’m finding that out to be true. One characteristic you have to have as an exchange student is to be open. Open to different cultures, different personalities, different people. You can’t close yourself off. You…

Negative Degrees and Other Things

Hey y’all what’s up. I’m currently watching The Avengers with Stepan and all he can think about is that the plane that The Hulk just destroyed is really expensive. He’s wondering why the laws of physics are not applying to Thor. Anyhoo, so this past week, I’ve been hearing about how the weather forecast for…

Deutschkurs

Sorry, haven’t been updating much. :D So so far, I have started my Deutschkurs. Which is my German course, if you haven’t already figured it out. So far it’s been okay. I mean, I’m actually doing things, not just doodling on every surface. So far the topic we’re covering, I already know. Like introducing your…
