Not Wasting A Minute In the Autumn of 2014 I decided to not go to school, not get a job, and not renew an apartment lease. Crazy? Fun? Scary? Yes, yes and yes. But it's time to take a bite out of the world before it chews me up and spits me out like a bad taste

Sundays in Berlin

In front of the Brandenburg Gate where the Chancellor spoke a few minutes later

Today Matt and I woke up and went off to get some food and wonder around a bit.  He called up a friend (Melanie) and we explored around Alexanderplatz until we got hungry. Then it was time for some Wok to Walk restaurant for some noodles. Throughout the day we say things such as the Reichstag, City Palace, Tiergarden, The Brandenburg Gate and even the Chancellor of Germany (Angela Merkel) giving a speech in front of the Brandenburg Gate. There was a lot of walking the city. It was nice to have two guides for the day.

Also, I got an offer for a job, so I set up my phone to call back to the USA using Skype. I thought it was a good day to test out the app and surprised my parents with a phone call around 9AM Ohio time.

Later in the evening we went to another friend’s apartment and watched the Packers play the Jets via a slightly graining internet stream. The game ended after the metro stopped though so Matt and I stayed on his couch for the night. It would have been quite a long walk otherwise.
