The Last Month

After Christmas with the Rossmanns in Nürnberg and New Year's in Kreuzberg, I find myself all moved in in my room in Wedding, a Bezirk (borough) in northwest Berlin. Got used to the new place and my new roommate from Israel, Itay, pretty quickly, which is good since lately I've had very little time for anything besides work for my classes. I'm beginning to feel the end-of-the-semester stress, and can't help but think about my return to Middlebury in a month. Being in the last month of my 18 months abroad is very strange, to say the least.
