Who the heck stole summer??? I want it back, dammit.

I know I was a tourist here myself at one time, but it can get a little overwhelming having to get around in areas that are so tourist-heavy, especially on some of the narrow sidewalks that we have here. Luckily I ended up at a nice quiet restaurant that was hidden away on a small street that has remained undiscovered by the masses of tourists. Think I'm going to say where it was? No way. It could be one of Berlin's best kept secrets ;)

I always know when it's 12pm or 6pm because of those bells. Ding dong.

Woke up today to yet another sore throat. What is up with this? This is the third "throat thing" I've had in the past couple of months. The same crap happened to me back in October last year. What kind of crud is in the air around here lately?

I guess saying I've neglected this blog is an understatement since my last post was over 5 years ago. But guess what? I am still in Berlin! I still like it here, even though the weather really pisses me off sometimes.

I've been thinking about moving to London someday. Too bad it's too expensive. There's no way I could afford it now. So Berlin it is for a while.

Last night I saw Depeche Mode at the Olympiastadion. The stupid weather sucked (raining through the whole show!!) and I got soaked, but a great show nonetheless.

(does anyone read this?)

Apparently some people did... whose comments I never responded to. Sorry about that! I don't think I was aware that there even were any comments.

On Halloween, we went to Kilkenny Irish Pub in the Hackesher Markt. This was the only place I could see any kind of Halloween celebration going on. We had some fun.

Oh and about the weather. It sucks. It's not terribly cold but it's always dark and cloudy all day long. It makes me feel very sleepy all the time.

Ich muss Deutsch lernen! Gestern abend war ich mit leute die nur Deutsch sprechen. Ich war frustriert weil ich nichts verstanden habe.

I'm sure I made some mistakes here.

I have to learn German! Last night I was with people who only spoke German. I was frustrated because I didn't understand anything.

I really felt like an outsider and it's all my fault!

Ich bin dumm. :(

here is a pic from the Mauer Park

It's been a while since I posted here, but it's been a pretty busy summer for me. Things are going well and it seems I'm working less and having fun more often. This is a good thing, however, it's been a little tricky for me to keep up with the work over the past week.

The weather has been so unpredictable, however, pretty decent over the past week in spite of all these wandering clouds. I've been spending a lot of time in the park because the person I am seeing loves to go there. Well I like it too. As long as it isn't raining.

There seems to be a wasp problem here. I've never seen so many wasps in any city before. I expect to see them at the park, but they are EVERYWHERE, not just the park. Fortunately, they seem to be rather harmless, they don't sting aggressively, they just seem to be looking for sweet things such as honey and jam. The bad thing is, I've got a horrible fear of wasps, bees, and all those types of stinging things, so even though I logically know they won't bother me if I don't bother them, I still run in a panic away from them. If anyone sees me dancing in the middle of the sidewalk, it's most likely a case where I am trying to get away from a wasp.

I'm so curious, what has happened to this guy? I was following his blog since we both came to Berlin from Seattle, but he seems to have disappeared since sometime in February.

I still suck at German. For one thing, I guess I am not practicing enough. The people I spend time with can speak English and it's just easier that way. (call me lazy). And another thing is, I really don't have the "gift" of being able to learn a language very quickly. I'm slow to pick it up. Time. I just have to be patient I guess, and maybe try a little harder.
