Thank you for these!

I'm currently watching Berlin Babylon on Netflix, I'm going to also try to take advantage of having Netflix in Germany and watching some regionally-restricted material (I have a VPN I could theoretically use from anywhere but I know Netflix is cracking down on that stuff more).

I've officially finished the entire Dino lernt Deutsch series, going to be going back and rereading many of them again to really help learn the vocab. Thinking about actually moving on to Bird Box now, but I might hold off until I'm more confident on a few reviews of the last few readers as they just now have barely moved into casual everyday language instead of beginner language.

Wooooo no update for a while! Been busy as hell for the last few weeks!

But being back in Germany has been great for my German. I'm taking a German class with my company which is also wonderful. The teacher is great and we spend a good majority of our time immersed in German instead of discussing things in English. Many of my coworkers are also supportively talking with me in German the majority of the time, even if it can be a struggle to get a waiter/waitress to do the same.

Taking some time off this week to see München and Schloss Neuschwanstein, which should be a wonderful experience as well.

Wish I had more time to update! I'll try to post more when I can now that I've pretty much fully adjusted to my new schedule
