10 years ago I was 19 and had just finished Gymnasium (highschool). I was not very happy about it, because I would have liked to stay in school for a little longer. I really liked being in school and didn’t look forward to the new part of my life.
I went on a trip to the Canary Islands with my ex-boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend (the only time I have EVER taken a beach vacation!) and I had already applied at the Heinrich-Heine-University in DÃƒÂ¼sseldorf to study Geography and English.
5 years ago: I went to New York and on a two week road trip through New England with my ex-boyfriend. We had a great time and I was already planning in my head that I wanted to study abroad before finishing my degree
1 year ago: I was living in CA with Jon and I was working for the USGS… also planning out an extension of my J-1 visa for another 8 months. I was definitely having a fantastic time!
I was having a good time with Susi in KÃ¶ln, but I also couldn’t stop thinking about my visa trouble… I wish that only one time things would go through without a hassle :(
5 snacks i enjoy: red berries with vanilla icecream, apple pie, cheez-its, knÃ¤ckebrot mit teewurst, licorice
5 songs i know all the words to: thin air [pearl jam], sick cycle carousel [lifehouse], unwell [matchbox20], and all new kids and joe mcintyre songs :)
5 things i would do with $100 million dollars: pay off my parents’ debts, buy a nice house with Jon, treat my family and friends to something they need/like, donate some money for good causes
5 places i would ran away to: running away seems a little bit ironic with a world of boundaries, wars, visa regulations… but I would like to go somewhere where it is peaceful and where everyone is happy and loving
5 things i would never wear: socks w/ sandals, leggins, neon-colors, loafers, tapered pants
5 favorite tv shows: summerland, sex and the city, my so-called life, friends, family guy
5 biggest joys: to love somebody and being loved, having good friends, seeing kids explore the world, watching animals, being with family and friends
5 favorite toys: my notebook (mos def), my digi cam, www, stationaries, Jon ;)
