Dear blog, there have been a few times when I’ve been willing to give up on you, saying that you’re too hard. But this week, when Turkish author Elif Shafak tweeted about you it was so incredible. Note to self: do more posts about cats. Cats mean stats.
Dear Haagen-Dazs hot chocolate, you weren’t really worth the calories. I’ll stick to Starbucks’ lebkuchen late in the future.
Dear beer advent calendar, what? I just. What? Oh, Germany.
Here’s the thing about my weekly links – I read blogs and stuff both at home and at work so I alternate between linking to things I’ve saved at work and things I’ve saved at home. These are the things I saved at home, so some may be a little old now…
I really enjoyed this post about the differences between Ireland and America. It seems there are a lot of expats out there weighing up their adopted country with their home country right now. I guess it’s just that time of year when you assess everything.
I just…I find this hilarious. I’m sorry. I can’t even tell you why it’s funny, but it makes me cry every time I see it.
How about some tourism slogans that were full of fail?
Thought Catalog were pretty thoughtful once more and had a post on things to consider before living abroad. I agree with a lot of these. Expat life certainly isn’t for everyone.
This link on things an expat has learnt about German people has been making the rounds this week. I sent it to my flatmates and they agreed that they are all very true. I was on the floor laughing at some of them!
This secret cinema event in London sounds amazing – you get to LIVE the cinema experience! I wonder if they’ll do any of my favourite films.
Still looking for stocking fillers for Christmas? How about your loved one’s name written in beautiful Japanese calligraphy? My friend Jo is doing them and she’s SO good at it! She makes such gorgeous creations!
Last link – Bo En has been my soundtrack for the past week. I LOVE his stuff – and Miss You is my tune right now. He also does amazing video game music so if you like electronic music then make sure you have a click around.
No video this week. I seem to be missing all the good ones!
