DAY SEVEN (03.12.13): THE SNOW HAS FOLLOWED ME FROM KANSAS
It snowed. That is all.
I swear… I buy random foods and snacks that interest me, but it ends up being gross or bad. For instance, I bought some cottage cheese because I LOVE it. The bad part was that this cottage cheese was too sour. The taste being similar to original yogurt without added flavors. What’s worse is that I bought TWO! NUUUU!!! I also bought this drink I thought was apple juice, but it turned out to be apfelshorle, a very carbonated apple drink. I hate this! Lol… I nearly died drinking it.. I don’t think I can escape all of this carbonation. I don’t know what I’m gonna do with myself. I am gonna have to trust in what I buy.
DAY EIGHT (03.13.13): THE ELECTION OF THE POPE
I watched the election of the pope today with Mitch. He was very excited. I’ve never seen it before because I don’t keep up with the news and I am not religious. I am pretty out of the loop it seems. However, it will change soon because my roommates get the New York Times International Newspaper, which is in English :). I pretty much get a history lesson everyday from my roommate Mitch; he is a political science and history major and writes for newspapers and magazines.
After waiting forever for the reveal of the pope, I watched my Taiwanese drama called “When Love Walks In,” which stars Victoria Song from f(x) and Calvin Chen of Feilunhai! So far it is pretty good, I mean it is a typical Cinderella-like drama.. I hope the end doesn’t disappoint me. I haven’t watched a Taiwanese drama in a long time, or dramas in general. I actually only wanted to view this for Victoria lol…
DAY NINE: (03.14.13): MY LEFT FOOT
Today Bailey and I were finally able to climb up to the Hoschule (apparently the university was renamed) and receive our student ID’s. FINALLY! We can now ride the bus up the hill without breaking a sweat! The bus system is wonderful because it runs very late at night and students can ride for free. It was so weird because it started to snow and I swear it was like a dream. I've never seen more beautiful snow than what I saw today. Each snowflake slowly floating in the air, falling like a small piece of cotton.. After the snow hit the ground it would instantly melt. It is something I could never capture in a photo. When we walked through the city, the sun was shining and snow was falling... LIKE... WHAT?!? This is crazy and would never happen in Kansas. Snow is ugly there, at least to me lol... I hate snow.
Later Bailey and I went shopping around for random things.. Here are some truffles I bought from a chocolate store. Some of these truffles had alcohol in them! I invited Bailey to join my roommates and I for some salad and a movie! The salad is Stefan's 'specialty' and it was so wonderful! I know it had arugula, basil, sheep cheese.. but there may have been other foods added I didn't see.. For the movie, my roommates gave me some choices, but I ended up picking a movie called My Left Foot: The Story of Christy Brown which is based on a true story of Christy who was born with a severe case of cerebral palsy, but luckily had control in his left foot. Everyone thought he was as useless as a vegetable, until he showed them that he could write by using his foot. A specialized doctor visited him and helped him learn how to speak. As he overcame all these difficulties, his family realized that he had talent and interest in literature and art. He became well-known for his works. In the end, he marries one of his nurses named Mary Carr. Although we watched this movie in English, it was kind of hard to understand because of their accents. I think this is what happened at least lol.. The movie was pretty good and had a happy ending. However in real life (after some research), I found out that Mary is accused of Christy's quick decline and eventual death because she was an abusive and unfaithful lesbian.
DAY FIFTEEN (03.20.13): THE BLENDING OF DAYS
So far the days have really been blending together and I forget to write about what I did.. Such a bad habit, but I've already been here for about 2 weeks and my body is still kind of getting used to it.
