I'm back!

A lot has happened since my last post. I flew back from New Delhi at the end of May, through Qatar, back to Heidelberg. Qatar was interesting, even if it was just for two hours. The loud speaker announcements were in Arabic and it was gratifying/depressing to catch a couple of words that I understood every now and then. I definitely want to return to an Arabic-speaking country at some point. 

Then I was in Heidelberg! It was so great to see all of the friends that I made while I was living there. I stayed with an awesome friend of mine who was gracious enough to let me crash on his floor for an entire week. It was a nice relaxing transition back into Germany

Since then, I've come back to Berlin and have been trying to get settled and stable as it gets with me, I guess. I found a place to live starting in august until next august. Right now I'm living at another awesome person's place while they are away. I'm doing a paid internship for a digital media production company (workin for the man 9 to 6) and enjoying my time on the weekends. I'm only moderately stressed about my slowly declining bank account, the 8 million bureaucratic things I have to do to live here, and thinking about forming concrete plans after I'm done (!) with my masters.

I also managed to get out to Vienna on a perfectly unnecessary splurge that was completely wonderful. Here's the obligatory selfie in front of the Mozart house.

Sooooo yep. That's what's going on with my life. I managed to make it back to Berlin! After not being sure about my ability to do it, after a fair number of "what the fuck am I going to do?" moments, after stomach churning stress and grades and three continents: I'm back
