Chances are looking slim that I’m going to get a Student ID. Which means no stable internet connection, no stable laundry, and no free public transportation. This is a major bummer. I thought this was something I had taken care of before I left, but apparently not. It could be worse though, because I can have internet when my neighbor is here, I just have to do my laundry in another dorm or borrow someone’s ID, and continue to be a ‘Schwarzfahrer’ or just give in buy a very expensive train pass.
I’m about to get picked up by Sylvia to go dancing. I thought at first she said ‘Folk-dancing’, like western country style. I was like, ok this is something I have got to see, Germans doing Folk dancing. On the way home from work, Martin [the new guy], starting laughing and redirected my thoughts, that this was in fact ‘Volk-dancing’, like the Waltz. Ahhhhh what have I gotten myself into. I didn’t really want to go, but I figure if I say no, the invites might stop coming. I don’t have a partner or anything. And it’s in German. I don’t know any German dancing words haha
***Edit: I just got back from ‘Folk-Dancing’. Yes it was Folk/Volk… I don’t really know. What an experience. There were 8 of us. We danced and twirled in a circle and threw our hands up in the air like we were love struck hippies. For 1.5 hours.
Went for a run, came back, and found out my hair-dryer is fried. I might cave and buy a European one. Birthday present?
Hopefully I’m going to get Friday off of work, and then Diane and I are going to go to Amsterdam and Belgium. I’ll finally get to walk the lands of my ancestors.
