I am seriously considering just not coming back next year and working as an au pair or something.

Oh, you want content?

Yesterday Erin and Carlye and I discovered this place totally by accident.

Why didn't I come abroad for a whole year?

I studied abroad for a semester and then came back to do something completely irrelevant that I didn't care about over the summer. It's one of my regrets in life.

Are you available to Skype sometime "today"? I might steal Jeff/Rachel's computer to do as such.

Great to hear that you're enjoying fair Deutschland, though, and feeling good being there. All the German (& Dutch, and Italian, and various other continentals) students I've ever met took aaages to get their undergrad degrees, so a year out for you'd just be getting into the spirit of European life...

well i mean you could very well take a year off... almost everyone i know who took a year off came back refreshed and ready to work more (note: the exception is when you take a year off to do heroin, or take a year off and decide that you should be doing something else with your life). also, perhaps you should also think about grad school in germany? instead of condemming yourself to a life in academia, you could also get some kind of translation job after school. or write about germany for some american news outlet. could be cool times.

Liebe Lauren Stokes,

Ach, mein Gott--bist du jetzt in Deutschland, mit einer Goethe-Institut-Programme?
Obwohl ich nicht so viel Deutsch sprechen kann, möchte ich sagen, daß ich nach Deutschland
diese Sommer oder in Oktober gehen werden--die Universität Michigan hat eine Programme
in Freiburg, aber ich weiß nicht, ob ich in Deutschland für eine ganze Jahre lernen soll. Ich kann
nicht so viel sprechen, und ich mache vielen Fehlern!

Was denkst du über Deutschland? Und Swarthmore? Wir sollen uns sprechen--vielleicht ich kann
auch ein "Skype-headpiece" kaufen, weil ich habe Fragen über deine kleine Universität für dich, und über
die "Status of Intellectualism in American and the ethics of the ivory tower" und Ontologische
Frage in allegemein. Entschuldigung eine zweite Mal, daß ich wie ein richtige Aüslanderin spreche.
Ich habe keinen Kopf für die Grammatik. Nur für wichtige Gespräche!

Deine Alte Genossen,

Woah! My friend, [ profile] humanfemale, showed me these things in August 2007 when I was living in Berlin for a short while and I took a shit-ton of pictures and showed everyone!

Did you see the crazy graffiti on the back walls?

We got scared because we heard dogs growling (or rather, she did; haha) and left after about an hour or so, but it was fun.

I'm so sorry, I totally don't mean to be stalking your LJ or anything, but it is really fucking awesome that you're as in love with Berlin as I am and we have the other stuff in common. Just got excited!

Isn't it great when other people love German? I feel like there aren't enough of us sometimes, but then other times it's nice that it's like a little clique.
