What’s Next?

As some of you might be aware, I recently finished off my Au Pair year in Paris, and have since returned home for the summer to Los Angeles. To be honest I came home this summer not knowing where I was going to end up come fall, but now the decision has been made.

Andddd, I’m moving to Munich in exactly 11 days!! This girl is finally going to Uni to be an English Literature major. I have loved Germany my entire life, and am so happy that I will have a chance to live there for at least the next few years.

There are still a lot of preparations to be made. For one, I still don’t have an apartment come October, and I’m still waiting to hear back about my minor. But the mental packing list has started, and I can’t wait to dive head first not only into a new city, but also into my continuing life in Europe as a student.

And my dear readers: anybody from Munich? I have never been and would love to hear your tips about the city. Always feel free to leave comments in German, I understand them like I do English :)

Here’s to life changes and all that’s to come. I can’t wait.
