I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Southern Germany has the best food! This includes Flammkuchen (which is technically French (maybe? Alsace is one of those regions that changed nationality quite often, so who knows what it was when they created tarte flambée.)), one of my favorite dishes. It’s a staple around here in fall, but just as good in the middle of winter.

On my way home, I found this little guy on the train. Poor unloved glove.

This means little besides being able to vote in municipal and federal elections (and probably a higher premium for my contents insurance), but I like the sound of it. :)

On a mission to explore the bar scene in our Kiez, my roommate and I went to train for cocktails. The bar is inside a former S-Bahn cart and has a great selection of drinks and very nice staff. (No food, though – sad.) Also, this place is a mere 10 minute walk from our house, so we’ll certainly be back.

After weeks of researching with which phone I should replace my slowly dying S2, I FINALLY bought an S4 (thereby continuing my habit of living behind the curve and usually buying whatever was just replaced by a newer model). I’m super bummed that I wasn’t able to move my Whatsapp conversations and most of my apps, but having a phone that doesn’t freeze once a day and that has working vibration is amazing! :) Also, my old phone wasn’t able to sync with my Fitbit, so that’s a nice bonus.

I’m a devout Mac user, but I’m always very weary of upgrading to a new version of Mac OS. Also, reviews always suggest you do a full hard drive back-up (which I should do more often anyway, ahum) and it’s taken me forever to put up the desk in my room and to locate my external hard drive in my mess of boxes.

But after my Macbook became extremely sluggish, I finally bit the bullet. While I’m not a big fan of the design changes, I’d like to think that my laptop runs a lot faster now, so yay.

While I’m not following any team in particular at the moment, I love me a good game of whatever team sport is hip wherever I go. In my hometown, that’s usually handball or volleyball. My mom had tickets to a volleyball Bundesliga game, so we went and watched the Schweriner SC girls (yellow) win against Potsdam. Well done, girls!
