I owe millions of thanks to the rockstars who helped make this move as painless as possible. (Is that a weird way of phrasing it? Probably.) I’m a lucky girl, blessed with amazing family members, great co-workers and wonderful friends. Thank you!

I spent the last hour of the day assembling my bed because that first night in a new house is very special to me.
(We have a saying in Germany that the dream of the first night in a new home comes true. I dreamed that I was bitten by a lion cub. Make of that what you want.)

A day of power-packing left me hopeful that mayyyybe there was a way I could actually make this move happen. It also made realize just how much stuff I have. Oh boy.
And with this, I was off. Goodbye, Potsdam!

I finally sent my thesis off to the printer! Weeeee! :) There were some last-minute hiccups (What is my ISBN? Where is my cover? Why is Word so uncooperative?), but I finally hit send and can’t wait for the proof which I’ll receive next week. Yay!

Sometimes (very rarely), I already know in advance what kind of picture of the day I want to take – say, when I have plans to go out with friends or take a trip somewhere. I don’t remember if I had planned something specific in mind for today, but I’m sure it couldn’t top the screenshot you see up there. Weeee PhD!

Halloween at my former house! It was so good (and weird) to be back at this place that I loved so much and to see people whom I’ve missed a lot over the past month. The party was great, lots of incredibly creative decoration, good music, and a really elaborate ghost tour. I wish I could go back more often.

What seems like a throwaway shot has a lot of significance to me.
I had brunch in Berlin (Hotel Honigmond offers a great deal for Sunday brunch, though apparently it’s not necessarily recommendable as a hotel). On the way back, I noticed the distinct cobbles that run through Berlin where the Berlin Wall used to stand. I wonder whether seeing this will ever cease to get me a little choked up. (I don’t know which side is which. And that’s just as well.)
