Well I was extremely dissapointed that I couldnt be at Grant Park on election night- But I cant really complain- being in Berlin. Thankfully- this election brought so much interest all around the globe, that Berlin was quite energetic and excited about the event. This theater had hundreds of people littered outside its doors celebrating before the decision was made. And the resturaunt/bar we had eaten at right before- had a live band singing original tunes poking fun at american politics and the current state of the country. It was all in good fun, and it really made me feel at home. The singers had a southern/ sort of folky twang that I could only put up with because of its hilarity. After this I went home-and went to bed-but Ike decided to party till the decision would be known. He finally wondered into the apartment, turned the tv on and began chanting Obama like things- 3 AM Berlin time- on a school night. Well I suppose I couldnt sleep on such a historic day!


I know im here for school, I love learning, and being in the German classroom, but I am just beyond ready to graduate. This is my 1st semester overseas, my 9th semester in College, and my seventeenth year strait in school. Enough is enough already. According to Snapple "Real Fact" #275: I could have walked around the world atleast 4 times in the amount of time ive been sitting in classrooms- imagine what could have been accomplished during that! With that in mind, I cant really blame myself for feeling a tad bit undermotivated to do my best. But, I have a 3.7 GPA, $40,000+ in debt, and 4 German Professors to impress, so I suppose, working for just a few more months will pay off.
