nyc again

My last trip back to the rents' was in July, actually, but we've already established my propensity for posting procrastination. I had recently officially stopped eating meat but Shake Shack makes a pretty good 'Shroom Burger & my iron levels came back totally satisfactory, plus my Vitamin D levels were so high I got an accidental farmer's tan. Also my kid cousin came for a visit, so you may think my camera roll is just full of well-framed photographic masterpieces like these but actually it's mostly unflattering creeper pictures of me sweating like Niagara Falls.

While I'm on a trips-I-forgot-to-mention roll, Budapest! A beautiful city with delicious food, most of which seems to at least resemble if not be some sort of goulash. The success of 3-day jaunt through the city was largely thanks to our wonderful Brazilian CS host, who probably knew more about Budapest and its history than any random Hungarian you might pester for insider tips on the street. Free tour guide! Hooray! Why I keep going back to the network.

Meanwhile in Berlin, Isa enters her first week of grad school and somehow seems to be starting already behind. I've been crashing each afternoon after marathon study sessions at the library (and marathoning your brain is at least as exhausting as marathoning your legs) and feeding myself rather haphazardly with cafeteria food, cookies, and too many avocados, if there is such a thing. Also partying like a pro, I don't even think anyone's caught on to the fact that I'm an introvert yet.

Time management is key, I know, I'm just still trying to figure out how to manage it. But my schedule has graced me with semester-long long weekends, which means Amsterdam this weekend to visit the boy and lots of studying on the bus.

museum highlight: mumok & leopold museum // vienna

So, obviously, when in the capital of Jugendstil/Art Nouveau you hit the museums in order to properly ogle Egon Schiele and Klimt's mad doodle skills. And, of course, all that beautiful concrete and marble that make art museums pretty much the best places in the world to just amble and admire the shadows.

Now I just sit at home and admire the photos IN MY NEW APARTMENT IN BERLIN WHAAAAA
Yeah that's right peoples, I live in Berlin now and I start orientation at uni today actually. This means that I can showcase my special talent of always being the awkward weirdo in new social situations. But we're (practically) old now, which means that people love that awkward weirdo sh*t, golly gosh am I glad I'm not in high school anymore.
