I'm an American who wandered into Berlin several years ago full of stary eyed dreams of going to a free university. Fast forward to today, and I never went to school, because I'm the special kind of procrastinator that allows me to cross oceans in the name of my dreams, only to stop short and just sort of hang around once I actually get here.
But I wouldn't stay if I didn't love it here. I like to eat food. All of it. And that's good, cause it's all here. I love to read; any stories. I love to write; any (stupid) stories. I like to move. Dance, climbing, yoga, bouldering, walking, whatever, really. I drink enough where if I wasn't a self described "writer" there would probably be some heartfelt interventions, but since it's for work it's ok. I love people and meeting them, learning from them maybe not liking them so much but that's ok cause you don't have to like everyone. I'm a big geek and make my own cosplay props. I like to cook anything I can find a recipe for.
I'll try anything, and like to bring that mentality to my day to day life. I also make my own chocolate truffles and if that doesn't impress you then you're made of stone.
The endless potential for whatever. Whatever you want to hear, it's here. Whatever you want to eat, it's here. Wherever you want to dance, they've got your style. However you want to dress, you can.
This city lets you be who you want to be, and it doesn't care whatever you decide.
It's surprisingly affordable, has room for everyone, you'll never run out of stuff to do, and we have a swimming pool that floats in the river. Because we can.
