I am back. With pictures. Finally.
So, for this post I am collaborating with Pascal from pascolsommerphotography.blogspot.ch (he needs a catchier name.) Basically we met and took pictures together. He is an incredibly skilled photographer; go check out his work. It’s divine.
Pascal the Great — as I call him — have been friends for a couple of years, but today was the first time we went on a photo trip together. We decided to go on the Gurten for the sunrise which was a good call; it was gorgeous. It was worth getting up at 5.55 am on a day I could’ve slept in. (And that says something.) No, we didn’t ditch school. Today all the teachers in Bern meet, chat, have coffee, and gossip about us. I wish they did that more often.
What connects Pascal and me is that we both did an exchange year. He went to England, though, so we always have that “Brit-versus-Murica”-thing going on. But we both love speaking English. We love it. We are those weirdos who talk English with each other and then switch to Bernese German in an instant to talk with the man in the bus. Today we admired the sunrise, consumed too many calories at Starbucks, took a random train to a random place, ate Chinese food in a cellar restaurant, hiked through a forest, and then unexpectedly turned up at our friend’s house to bake cookies and cupcakes with her.
It was a pretty awesome day.
I am — of couse — still super busy. I got a job yesterday at an old people’s home which makes my trip to Namibia in spring a lot more affordable. I am starting on Saturday. I am also going to a concert tomorrow, and this weekend I am going to film a very embarassing video with my best friend.
It feels surreal that I baked Christmas cookies today for the first time this year. December 1st is a bit more than a week away, and I am not ready for it to be here. Can’t it just be October again?! On the other hand I am soooo looking forward to the camp I am going to over New Year’s, a concert I am going to attend, and the end of this horribly stressful semester. (Yay for no exams. #thankyoujesus)
Thanks for reading.
