It’s been a long, long time since I have blogged. My apologies. But I’m really not sure what I want to blog about these days. I’m coming up to 6 years in Germany and life here is no longer different. Germany now feels like home. This is great in many ways, but it does significantly reduce the blog fodder when you are not undergoing culture shock on an almost daily basis. That’s not to say that I don’t encounter things that makes me think ‘What the hell, Germany?’ but they are far and few between these days. I’m open to suggestions about what you want to read on this little blog of mine, that is if I still have readers. Is anyone still out there? But, seriously, if you have topics you want to read about, let me know.
As way of an update, let me quickly recap my year. It’s not been a great one, truth be told. I’ve now experienced German hospitals and will now travel through life minus one fallopian tube (fuck you, endometriosis). Depression has also regularly decided to kick my ass. But there have been good stuff as well. I visited Norway for the first time ever in June and am now dreaming of life living in a traditional Norwegian farmhouse up in the mountains.
I’m also getting more active in the LGBT community here and took part in the Rainbow FlashMob to promote acceptance of queer folk.
The German language still continues to be a daily battle, but one I’m struggling with slightly less. I’m still nowhere near fluent and my grammar continues to be atrocious but day-to-day communication doesn’t seem as daunting as it once did.
So, yeah, I’m still alive and kicking over here. Once again, I really want to know the topics that you want to read on this blog.
