Yes, I realize I haven’t posted in a while. No, I don’t particularly care that much.
A bunch has happened lately, or maybe it just seems like a bunch to me. But, it’s definitely a mixed bunch, if it’s one at all.
Firstly, a couple friends took me to a local punk show (the first I’d ever been to) and even though I started out super awkward and standing in the back; I soon got into it all and had a LOAD of fun! I had a sore Sunday the next morning, but that wasn’t so bad. Also made some plans and things that might be cool. I’ll post later about that maybe.
Secondly, my 18th birthday was last Monday, and meine Über Freunden threw me a birthday party on like, two minutes notice and turned it into literally the best birthday I have had in my entire life. I know I say this a whole lot, but it’s true: I LOVE MY FRIENDS MORE THAN ANYTHING.
Third, emotional breakdowns FTW. And by ftw, I mean ftl. Yeah, see the last sentence of the paragraph above. Today was one of those days, but when I got home I could look myself in the mirror and got back around to ooh-ing and ah-ing over my boobs and generally thinking I’m adorable again, so it’s not all bad. Again, friends are the best thing ever.
Lastly, I’m leaving for Italy very soon! I’m pretty excited about that, and I won’t stop mentioning it until I’m out of breath and my cheeks are pink from all the giggling I’m doing about it.
Anyway; There’s my longish comeback post. I’m going to have fun hiking tomorrow. I hope you have a wonderful day, and I love you!
Oh gosh! First day of German class today! I can already tell this is going to be all sorts of fun! Had a bit of confusion when asked to pick my Deutsch Name, as Petra was already on the list, and he seemed to imply he wanted us to pick a different name, so I went with a non-listed nicknameish short form and am now Petzi in German class. Also, I was full of all sorts of internal grins and happy squeeks when the instructor (totally intentionally, but it was still awesome) used feminine pronouns to inform the class what my German name was.
That was all fun and cool. I got to see my friend Demitrius before he leaves for the rest of the semester to live in the woods, or some related hippy stuff, and that was definitely welcome, because I thought I had said a last goodbye yesterday, and then was pleasantly surprised to see I got one last hug before his departure.
My friend Brooke gave me a hug in the hallway after German too, and her shoulder hit me quite hard in my already sore chest. But, at least that’s a good sort of pain. It’s a pain that reminds me my dreams are slowly coming true!
