i'm not in love with the modern world

it is weird to look back at 7 months, to think that three more or so and i will be home. it is odd now, because now that uni is sort of settled, i feel sort of... finished. finished like i was with highschool when i learned that i got this scholarship, finished like i am with knitting when there is less than 1/4 less, finished like when i finally put the dough in the oven.

but there is still time, and it is a good and bad feeling together. i have seen so much, learned so much, experienced so much, (cornily enough) grown so much that sometimes i wonder how much of katie there is left. i just spent two weeks hanging out with fellow exchangees and meeting new families and must say that germany is a beautiful, beautiful land.

this post is just going to be pictures, i think.

first off:

these are some of the bigger places I've been. The blue is homebase, the green is potentially planned travel, depending on time and money and so forth.

i understand what you mean about "being done." lately i've been feeling this weird "i've only got three months left, why make the effort?" feeling, and although that's annoying, i think it's pretty natural. i feel generally really good about what i have seen and learned and experienced. i think even if i were going home tomorrow i would feel good.

i love your pictures, and 'd like to make a similar map! nice that you'd like to visit karlsruhe, hopefully it won't disappoint. let me know about a weekend. the first two weekends in may i have plans, but other than that almost everything is open. it would be great if you could come visit.
