Frustration is a good place to start

I had another blog, but I just prefer using blogger so I'll be copy-pasting some older posts. I think instead of attempting to limit myself to a fashion blog, I'll just post what I feel like and see what happens.

Let me start off by saying a few things. I’m prone to exaggeration, but probably not as much as you’d think. I love Germany, otherwise I wouldn’t be here, and I am about 95% integrated – as much as I ever can/will be. I speak German fluently and very much appreciate being able to study here for free and having health insurance. I don’t like it when people hate on Germany, but I do understand needing to let out frustration.
But back to the fun part, the things that make me want to tear my hair out!
  • Stores being closed on Sunday/crap store hours in general
  • Bureaucracy in everyday life and at the university
  • Professors/teachers not being there during their office hours unless you make an appointment. What’s the point of office hours then?!
  • Lack of internet (Angie, you did not give all people access to at least DSL by the end of 2010, which you promised)
  • All food advertisements mentioning how ‘creamy’ everything is
  • Crafting supplies being too expensive D:
  • Dubbing instead of subtitling
  • Apartments not coming with appliances
  • Lack of access for the handicapped
I wonder what initial/on-going annoyances other people have had here.

  1. Some of these things really are annoying :D I've lived in Texas for 6 months when I was 17 so YES store hours really do suck and I always buy tons of crafting supplies whenever I visit Texas again ;)
    But I actually never noticed the "creamy"-thing... gotta pay attention next time I watch tv.
