Execution Hedgehog is Back

It’s true. I’ve been in Berlin for almost three days now, and even though I felt like I was falling apart on my first day, things are going great so far.

Here’s an update on what’s been happening in my life up to now:

-I finished college. Yippee.

-I took a break from school and worked full time. I like where I worked, but I really don’t feel like doing data entry until I die. Also, there’s apparently not much you can do in the Southwest with a degree in German and no relevant job experience. I mean, writing all those papers gave me a good typing speed, which is why I got the data entry job, but it wasn’t exactly what I was picturing when I took out all those student loans.

-I have a boyfriend. We met last year volunteering at a comic convention and it’s been rainbows and unicorns and purple Zakus ever since. Sieg Zeon.

Mr. Purple Checkpoint Charlie

So what am I doing here? For the next month, I’ll be getting certified to teach English as a foreign language, but after that, who knows? Maybe I’ll find a job as an English teacher, maybe I’ll work as a freelance translator, maybe someone will pay me to walk their dog, or maybe I’ll be a prostitute until I pay off my student loans.

I have no idea what’s going to happen, is what I’m saying.

    It’s amazing to hear that you’re doing so well. I always figured you would get back out abroad. Degrees in linguistics do that sort of thing. I just met a linguistic missionary the other day who translates the Bible into the native languages of Nigeria. Enjoy Berlin!!! My favorite thing to do there is grab a backpack full of beer and go drink in the lawn in front of the Berliner Dom in the evening. I highly suggest that you try it if you haven’t already! Just stay away from the Reeperbahn if you go to Hamburg.
