Uh oh. The Heimweh is starting in.

While I am loving it here, I suddenly want to be back home, camping or going to the lake, hopping on Mass, sitting in Aimee's Cafe doing homework, walking up the ridiculous hills to campus, snuggling in close to JB's neck, calling my mom on a CELL PHONE, sitting in independent, stand alone desks, being warm in a well lit room, having sunshine for more than one day a week, etc.

I MISS MY HOME. It wouldn't be so bad if someone who I love were here with me. But as it is, everyone who I really, really care about is 4,500 miles away and I want nothing more than to be with you (Ideally you would come HERE, as opposed to me goingTHERE, but I'm willing to negotiate).

I love you and misssss youuu!

HEllo to all. Again.

Instead of focusing on how I've been a lazy blogger, let's think of how nice it is that it's getting cold. Wait. It WOULD be nice if I had gloves. Or a winter coat. Oh yeah, I left those in Kansas when I was packing. WHAT A GOOD IDEA. :)

I've been in Bonn for a month and a half now and I heard a dog bark for the first time yesterday. How pleasant it is that dogs are so polite here. They make it so much easier for their owners to take them everywhere they go, and so their owners do. Even in the ritzy-est department stores (bras started at 67 Euro!), you will see dogs being picked up because they don't want to go on the escalators. It tickles me silly every time.

I had been thinking that I'd been getting pretty good at the whole accent thing, but two sentences out of my mouth asking to be able to take his class, my teacher asks 'Sie kommen aus Amerika, oder?'. Translation: 'you are from America, right?'. Daaaaang.
