I’m baaackkkkk! a quick update post…

Well, hello bloggy world! It’s only been like 2 months since I last saw y’all. Apart from downright laziness, I feel I have a few good excuses as to why I haven’t updated lately:

1. My German course started back up this fall, leaving me with fewer free mornings and much more homework.

2. I spent a couple weeks back in the States in October. (blog posts about my first time back home in 10 months coming soon)

3. I have a boyfriend now. This really shouldn’t be an excuse, as he actually encourages me to update my little blog, but I think it kind of counts as an excuse, because I mean, it just does.

4. (and probably the main reason) I’M LOOKING FOR A JOB! And to anyone who has searched for a job, you know that it takes up the same amount of time as having a job. I feel guilty anytime I’m on my computer if I’m not sending in my CV, filling out applications, or doing research on schools. For those curious, I am looking for teaching jobs in Munich, mostly at bilingual and international schools, because yes, I want to stay in Germany. (ps if anyone knows of a school/has connections with schools in Munich- let me know!)

But apart from all that, we had a beautiful golden fall here in Germany, complete with all the colorful  leaves changing and crisp, fresh autumn air. Unfortunately winter has started and it’s already. so. cold. There’s snow on the mountains here in town and I’m just praying this winter won’t be as long and miserable as the last one.

Posts Coming Soon:

-My trip to Texas, seeing family and friends, and my friend Emily’s wedding.
-St. Martin’s Day: a holiday for the kids in Germany

Until then, here’s a photo dump of my life lately:
