she won't let go¶
mareen: we seriously have a client who desperately wants their stationary to say street in the incorrect spelling, “strasse” instead of “straße” (a common but embarrassing + awkward mistake since the latest spelling reform, since this has never been changed). it is as if you spelled it stréyt. I know someone who kind of does the opposite… I went to German class with her here in Switzerland,...
Two of my American friends are having a going-away party tonight, since they’ll be moving back to the U.S. in just a couple of weeks. I’ve decided to “invent” a Swiss dessert with an American spin to bring there with me. I think the verdict will be cupcakes with crushed Toblerone and chocolate ganache frosting. Photos to follow!
Zürich Tumblr Meetup?
Would anyone come? (Just thought I’d get the idea out there!) Reblog if you have any thoughts.
Dear (most) Americans,
When you are out somewhere with me, please stop trying to speak German (or Swiss German). You are embarrassing me. I will take care of any needed communication between Swiss people and us. In the event that you do attempt to speak German, do not be surprised when I proclaim my non-Americanness after the fact. [edit: This post seemed to piss some people off! I thought it was quite clear that...

As my German gets better, my English gets worse
Last night while on the phone with my dad, I totally forgot how to say “apprentice” in English. It’s a good thing that I speak English at home or else I would have forgotten my mother tongue by now!
I guess this is the only place I haven’t mentioned it, but yeah, I got the job I applied for (even though my school transcript never showed up — guess they weren’t too interested in my grades)! So, now I’ll work for Apple in Switzerland. It’s weird to be able to say that. Not too long ago, I never would have predicted I’d even be living here…
Dear My Former High School in America,
You told me that an electronic copy of my transcript would be here on Friday. It never showed up in my e-mail inbox. You tried faxing it, but that didn’t work either, because apparently faxing a document to an international phone number is too complicated. As a result, I had to make an excuse at a very important job interview as to why I didn’t have my grades there to present to...
leeshiebean: STOP DRIVING DRUNK, ASSHOLES! The four teenagers were waiting at a red light at the intersection, when a woman driving an older model black van lost control of her vehicle and hit them. Police said they believe the 35-year-old driver of the van was drunk behind the wheel. She was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. (via) Why is it always the drunk...

I've had a rough year, dad.
Woke up this morning to an open sock drawer and...
…yes, Yoshi has not only figured out how to open the drawer on the night table (which is full of medicines), but he’s also opening the sock and underwear drawers now and emptying them onto the floor. Am I living with a cat, or a freaking two-year-old?
