I found my beloved Butt Bible on Youtube! Now watch it, get a "firm and perky butt", then watch it again and take a shot for everytime she says "Butt".

Hey guys, what's crack-a-lackin'?

I'm just editing photos here. The weather outside is a bit depressing and my coffee is cold now, but looking at these photos, I feel a lot better! I'm also posting bigger photos here on my blog. Let me know if you like it!

When Kev and Ky were here, we had Mexican Night. Naturally after we ate, we watched a completely random movie (Pitch Perfect). I would recommend it for laughs -- Fat Amy is the best!

Kyra and I got cute rings at Mauer Park Flea.

Lesley and I got Kinder Eggs!

 . . . and here's Lesley!

We also went to CORE, a Korean Restaurant in Prenzlauerberg. Naturally, the New Yorkers were running late, and my friend Lara (of BelleonEarth) was waiting inside holding a table. After we arrived, we quickly ordered some food and did some camera whoring.

Yum is the word.

We then headed over to Flamingo Bar to do a little drinking before hitting the hay back home. T'was a lovely evening.

I'm sitting in Cafe Morgenrot right now. I was awakened this morning by my landlord's incredibly audible music, and decided it'd be better to make my way to a cafe with wifi instead. Thanks to Yelp, I found this little gem.

-Free Wifi
-Fairtrade and Organic Coffee and Tea
-All Cakes are Vegan
-Cool Music
-Wooden Chairs and Tables with Dingy Hipster Lighting (you know what I'm talking about)

It's not very close to where I live, but it's worth a trek.

Today's Agenda
  • Finish emails to possible employers
  • Start writing my [next] short story
  • Clean the hallways
Not such a long list. I think I'll zen out to some Mumford & Sons in the meanwhile.

So the past few weeks I've had a few grand visitors i.e. AMAZEBALLS friends, who took a trip out to Berlin to see me!

The day they arrived was quite hectic - I cleaned my tornado of a room and went to pick up both Kev and Ky from the bus stop. However, they were arriving at completely opposite times and their bags went missing at the airport, so naturally, half of that day was spent trying to find them!

Ky being adorable at the neighborhood bakery.

Kev being a photographer (as usual!)

We had a little somethin' somethin'

The next morning we made breakfast: scrambled eggs with fresh veggies!

Amazing Chai Lattes at Cafe Krone in Prenzlauerberg

Pea Soup and Apple Strudels at Thomas Eck Restaurant in Charlottenburg
That was maybe the first 4 days or so . . . 

It was nice showing them around because I discovered some new places along the way. I also did a little dance on the S-bahn platform.

I hope you all enjoyed that one. Stay tuned for more!

Again. And I have no money on my phone (pay as you go plan, you're so inconvenient sometimes). Wish me luck with the trains!

I'm Late

Happy Belated New Years Everyone!

I know it's been a while since I posted. I've been going through a lot of stressful things, mainly with my living situation and employment. It's been so bad, and I feel awful that my dear friends from NY who came to stay with me in Berlin had to witness all the crazy. But what's done is done and it's time to move on. I know I'm going to be in a better situation soon, and I can't let negative energy bring me down!

Anyway, onto a few small updates.

1. The Most Recent Me
Here's me at Primark yesterday. I tried on two things, eventually not getting anything (the clothes I'm wearing here are all my own though). I like the idea of Primark, but alas, I never quite find items I'm willing to spend money on, because the quality is not where I'd like it to be. Cute things and maybe good for basics, but I think I'm more of a random thrift kind of girl.

2. The Most Recent Meal(s)
My Life in a Nutshell. Cakes, snacks, eggs, and salads. Oh, and if you're wondering what that brown mess is in that last pic, it's some warm Muesli (recipe coming up)

3. The Most Recent Trip
I went to Prague again, this time with my friends Kevin and Kyra from NY! It was a bit colder this time around because Winter was really showing his face, but somehow Prague seemed just as beautiful as ever. Here's a few snapshots of the wonderful city!

That's just a bit of how my New Year has been so far. How is everybody else's 2013 coming out?
