06 September 2011


august brought with it laughter, a bit of homesickness, new friends, wonderful moments of growing & many, many miles of exploring.

i had my first experience at a diskotek: we danced (with new friends) until 6 in the morning. i danced on the table to Party in the USA. i laughed so hard when this song & this song came on, i couldn't even dance. note: it was a popular club, with lots of teenagers. this type of playlist would not have gone over well in america.
i embraced german hits such as this.

i went climbing in the forest: i climbed obstacles that were both exhausting and terrifying. i only lost my shoe once and had to tell only one group of teenage boys to find something else to watch and judge.

i got accepted into uni.

it was a great month. 

Suddenly I realize
That if I stepped out of my body I would break
Into blossom.

-James Wright, “A Blessing”
