I was at the German coffee hour tonight when this happened… So first, I need to provide a brief explanation to make this joke make sense. So in German, when you say goodbye you say “auf wiedersehen” which means “on seeing again.” That is standard German. “Sein” means “being” as in to be alive when […]

My last semester

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

So my semester is welcomed. The new year started out rough, breaking up with my girlfriend and then going through the fallout of all that. Then I came back to Minneapolis and took it easy for the first 2 weeks, and after that I went back to my old internship to help them migrate their […]

A slacker culture at Austrian universities?

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

Streber is the German word for someone who is an overachiever, or a showoff. It is definitely a negative word, as described to me by a friend, who spent 4 years in the US and has no accent. Whenever she speaks, people give her dirty looks because they are jealous that their English is not […]

My (mixed) feelings about being abroad

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

So, I probably haven’t told you guys this.  Pretty much the only person I’ve told is Danielle.  I really do love being here, I think its a great step for me, my education, and towards developing my skills and personality.  At the same time, its the hardest thing I’ve ever done.  It is so difficult […]

Reading on the decline in the US?

Friday, November 30th, 2007

I’ve read a number of articles lately about Americans are reading less altogether now than they did in 1982.  The first thing I find a bit funny about this is that these are in print media, and while I’m reading it on the Internet, the fact is, I’m reading it.  I still believe that a […]

So I took a trip to Salzburg with some friends yesterday.  We had to leave at 6:35 in the morning, so I got up at 5 to leave and make it to the train station by 6:15.  Turns out I was the first one there.  Everyone showed up shortly after, we bought our tickets, and […]

How to get back at the Recording Industry

Monday, October 29th, 2007

I didn’t write this, it is a small section of a larger post about the Recording Industry slowly killing itself, which you will find here. ————————– 1. Stop buying music from major labels. Period. The only way to force change is to hit the labels where it hurts – their profits. The major labels are […]

Because this had to go somewhere…

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Thanks for nothing, you stupid bitch.  What a way to tell someone not to worry… (To all the people I used to work with who read this…sorry for all the swearing lately…)

The latest from Austria

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

So I realize I’ve only been blogging semi-regularly for last month or so.  Sorry.  I don’t really get comments anyway, so how do I know that people actually read this (for years, even, Judith!) but I’ll just write about what’s been going on anyway.  My intensive German course started on September 5th and then just […]
