Tschüss, Berlin

Last week marked my last week in Germany. The week started off like every other week. I was given a few different tasks at work that I worked on consistently for the next five days. It was hard to believe that I would be leaving Europe in just a few days to come home. On…

Tschüss, Berlin!

I can’t believe I’m leaving Berlin tomorrow morning—the place I’ve called home the last 11 weeks. I remember how I felt when I first landed at Tegel Airport in May. I heard people speaking German around me, and everything was so new. For the short time I’ve been living here, I’ve grown overwhelmingly familiar with…

I Already Miss It

Dang. It’s all over. I do enjoy the air conditioning in my parent’s home, but I cannot believe the 11wks in Berlin is up. It all went so fast. The flight home was terrible 🙂 I really appreciated my time with Derdack. It was the perfect place to work as I transition to a career…

… And That’s A Wrap

Well, it’s been a while, but my last blog post has arrived. I will be leaving Germany on Saturday morning, and that will be it! I enjoyed my last couple of weeks in Berlin, but the city was also swamped in a heat wave of proportions that Europe isn’t necessarily meant to accommodate. A single…

One Last Weekend

At the beginning of this past week I was given the task of looking over my company’s interim report and analyzing whether or not it met all of the guidelines that the auditors from EY use when they are going over Sirius’s reports. This proved to be a lot more difficult and time consuming than…

Final Countdownnn

Hallo! Not sure if this will be my last post. Maybe I still have one more… but dang this went fast! Last week work was a little slow. My boss is still out of town. Work is also getting slower with  more people going on holiday. At a time when I am eager to get…

Tiergarten Tranquility

This past week has been tranquil and relaxing, to say the least. I had two vacation days from work, and it was nice to have some me time. On Monday morning, I visited one of my favorite local cafés in the neighborhood. There were quite a few people working on laptops and some just enjoying…

Potato Pancake Paradise

After spending over a month only in Germany, I decided it was time to venture out once again. Last weekend I travelled to Krakow, Poland—a country I never thought I’d visit before this trip. I can honestly say I’m so happy I did! I’ve never thought much about it nor do I have any ancestry…

A Nine Hour Bus Ride Later…

For most of this week I was working on two tasks. The first task was a bit boring, in my opinion, because it involved a lot of sifting through thousands of records of invoices that my company has received throughout the past several years to find specific invoices and copy them. The purpose of this…
