Oh my god the potato post has come back to haunt my ass.
spending 20 minuets to contemplate whether oatmeal was an emotion or not
I don’t like minuets but damn.

It’s interesting how easy it is to find the banal repetition of common household objects everywhere. In Germany this is most clearly seen in people’s homes: almost every place has at least a few things from IKEA (my place isn’t an exception to the rule, by any means).
Fluff rice with a fork, never stir it with a spoon.
Vaseline is the best night time eye cream on the market.
You can buy alcohol and chips with your parents’ gas station credit cards.
If you force something, you’ll break it. That could be good or bad.
It’s important to read the care tags on your clothing and follow those instructions.

It’s always worth reading the instruction manual.
Nostalgia, like any drug, can be a poison or a remedy.
Pets are like human friends but better in every conceivable way.
Good doctors listen more than they talk.
You can’t fix a burned roux.
Just because someone is an authority figure does not mean they are intelligent/competent/right.
Measure twice, cut once.
Get your nice jeans and dress pants tailored by a professional.
If you’re uncomfortable wearing it you will not look good.
You’re not required to drink alcohol while in a bar.
There are a few things that cure all ills: the beach, your favorite album on vinyl, and fresh garlic.

You can absolutely be too forgiving.
Real humor punches up, not down.
Reading the assigned chapters will actually help you learn the material.
There are no adults. Everyone is as clueless as you are.
Applying eyeliner well is a timeless art.
You can always leave. Awkward dates, suffocating jobs, hometowns that you outgrow, relationships that aren’t growing in the right direction.
You can always come home again.
But it won’t be the same.
Life is too short for bad books, boring movies, shitty people, and margarine.
Never underestimate the importance of eyebrows.
I am slowly going mad.
Every day, I go out. Travel. Travel insanely long distances.
For what, you might ask? For furniture. Household objects. Household objects for a low price. Some of the same ones I even had back in the US.
Armed with my trusty computer, I browse the classifieds like a mad man in search of good deals on fabulous objects. And then I go to obscure little towns like Biedenkopf and Lohra because I can get there with my semester ticket without any problems.
It just takes up time. A lot of time. At least I’m getting this shit out of the way now. At least my room is slowly looking like a place I can call mine.
