Weekend side hustle

Man. This weekend was pretty intense.

I decided to go out (I know, right?) and ended up waiting in line, getting hit on by a French chick that said she liked "brown sugars", found twenty Euro while waiting, danced until 5 in the morning and then went home and slept for like 6 hours. It was wild.

Also, this Saturday I worked the coat check for a friend's party randomly. It was exactly as hard as you imagine it would be: not very. Except for when people get all uppity because they don't want to pay a Euro fifty to have someone watch their stuff. Or when people want to get something out of their bag but then have me put it back. Or when people have like 10 layers, their girlfriend's purse, a fanny pack, and two-and-a-half scarves and only want to pay for one thing. But, other than that it's mostly just sitting around and whatnot.

Now, my weekend is coming to a close. I should probably do something but, that would require energy that I spent being a young person doing young people things.

  1. Hi there! My name is Cynthia, I'm a fellow Californian who had discovered your page from doing some research on the Global Studies Programme at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. It would be so wonderful if we could get connected and if I could ask you for some guidance on applying for the GSP (in my case, for summer 2015 admission). To give you a little bit of background information, I just graduated this May (B.A. in Sociology, Minor in Business Marketing) and am working to save up to make the big move by the end of this year (December 2014). I was born and raised in the Bay Area, but moved with my family to Sacramento, Ca at the age of 8. After completing my two-years at a community college, I moved to Long Beach, Ca to finish my undergrad at CSU Long Beach. I have recently moved back home and am currently working to save up for the big move!

    The plan stands now as: be in Berlin, Germany by the start of next year - Jan 2015 - to enroll in a 3-week language intensive course at Humboldt University (now, although these particular courses are a bit pricey but they also host social events for students enrolled and I figured this would be ideal for me to integrate a little easier). At the conclusion of the course, I’d enroll in the local VHS courses for the following two months after (up until April), to finally start (hopefully — if admitted) my masters program in April for the summer semester! Now, I'm planning to apply to alternative masters programmes as my primary intention is to be a master's student in Germany by the start of the summer 2015, although the GSP is my very top choice.

    I would really appreciate any suggestions and guidance you could offer me. You could connect with me
