Sometimes I wonder what we've done to deserve #kleinbl00batshittery. We are unworthy
Currently sitting in the ICE from Regensburg to Passau, writing the Berlin trip report. (It's coming, I promise!! Just a bit difficult to find time since I'm still unterwegs.) Thankfully, we booked 8 seats together and 2 separate, so I'm next to my prof enjoying a bit of a break from the others' chaos. It's been... a lot. I like most of them as individuals, but when 10 non-native German speakers spend all their waking hours together, it not only becomes annoying, but also actively harms my language skills. (We become an echo chamber of grammatical errors and broken German.) And we're on the road for almost another 3 weeks. (Anyone in Austria, Berlin, or Leipzig, shoot me a message if you wanna meet up!) So I'll be doing my best to split off from the group as much as possible :) Fortunately my prof is very understanding, so it should be better from here on.
On a larger timescale, I don't want to go back. Or, at least, if I have to go back, I want to come back to Germany after graduation. That is, however, made difficult by the fact that I'm also less and less interested in anything resembling a stable job, and definitely anything resembling sponsorship for a work visa. So we'll see where that goes.
Mauerpark is home to one of the only legal graffiti walls in Berlin, if you have any interest in watching graffiti artists work. I found it super interesting and met a great guy from Denmark, so I'd recommend a visit. Other than that the Gorki theatre has a studio space where they put on all sorts of experimental theatre & performance art, if you're interested. I was there 4 times and it was always great.
10/10 would recommend spending the night & following day with a random stranger from the internet in a foreign city :)
Seriously though, we had a lot of fun. And Cumol and his roommates were all very patient as I practiced my German, which was nice. We're already planning to meet up again at some point!
Caring for a living thing is a small comfort as the Boomers' world collapses around us.
