Ahhh the first late post of my project! It was bound to happen!
I had another pretty good week. I had to figure out a ton of boring, bureaucratic paperwork but it was sunny and warm all week and that made me so much happier. :) As I mentioned last week, I received my internship contract and learned that I'm not starting until April. At first I was a little bummed that I would start a month later than I thought but now I think it's good because that way I have time to visit my family and enjoy life. On Monday I had to go to uni to get my internship approved which luckily worked out right away. On Tuesday I had to get some insurance stuff figured out and then I met my mom for lunch and we hung out on the beach by the river since the weather was so perfect. I visited my friend Anna and her baby on Wednesday. Last time I saw them was in January and the baby has since learned to crawl, sit and mumble - it's really great to see her grow up so fast. :) On Thursday I went to the tax office for a certificate I needed and learned that they stopped issuing it the day before - just my luck haha after that fiasco I went out for coffee and walked around the city which was nice.
I took a train to Cologne on Friday to visit my grandparents who I haven't seen since October! I'm having a great time so far! My uncle and little cousin came to the train station to welcome me and my older cousin came over later. There was a carnival parade where my uncle lives on Saturday so my grandparents and I rode our bikes over there to watch a bit of the parade. I feel like I'm getting sick ever since and I'm doing everything I can to fight it :/ It was so sunny on Sunday that we went on TWO walks - one before lunch in the Wahn Heathland and one in the afternoon down at the river - and we got our first ice cream of the year :D How was your week?
