Willkommen Sie meinen Blog

Welcome to my Blog, I'm glad you stopped by. I thought a little introduction was in order after I reviewed some Blogs of others and didn't have a clue what it was their Blog was about even after reading the last several posts. Not that it matters, if you like what I write, read on, if not, no harm no foul.

I began writing again after one of my grad classes last summer inspired me to do so. It was a class on the world famous author, Stephen King and it was incredible. In 2011 I received my Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. My undergraduate degree is also from UNCW in Sociology with a minor in Gerontology which I obtained in 2005.

A lot has changed since I began writing this Blog in 2010. I am rediscovering who it is that I am and what makes me happy. Feel free to read through from the beginning and see where I have come from and continue to follow along as I begin a new chapter in my life, one that proves to be interesting and filled with exciting challenges that I can't wait to share with the World. So for now, "Das ist Leben"...this is life!

Have you ever had "just one of those days?"

September Sunset, Böblingen
I'm pretty sure I can say "It's been one of those WEEKS!" Matt and I have been sick on and off since we arrived in Germany (exactly 1 month ago today!). It's probably due in large part to the weather since we came from hot and sunny eastern North Carolina where it almost never rains (I understand there was a bit of a down pour last week and all car dealers in the area were bought out by boat salesmen). Since our vehicle has yet to be delivered, Matt and I walk everywhere and when you consider our wardrobe and the sudden drizzle every other day, paired with a significant drop in temperature, it's no wonder we keep getting sick. But that isn't what the title of this post is about...

Both of us failed the German driving test last week (we didn't study), I "blew up" my blow dryer at the gym (it said "Wigo Europe" right on it but must not have been able to handle the 220 voltage here), the BX/PX (exchange) is always sold out of umbrellas, and they do not carry my favorite socks or stay open late enough . I'm sure these things don't sound like the end of the world to most of you but when they add up all in one day it gets to be a bit more than I'm happily able to handle when I'm sick and having to walk all over the place in the rain, while carrying everything in a 2000 cm backpack.
