Berlin Briefly

I'm just making a quick update from my phone before class starts because we don't have wifi in our apartments and we're pretty busy the rest of the time. I got to Berlin late Sunday night and met the eleven other members of my group. Most of us are in our early to mid twenties and have finished our degrees with no idea what to do next. I share my apartment with James from Seattle, Adam from Sheffield and Ben from Brisbane, the only guys on the project. We were all pretty apprehensive that this program is a scam because it seemed fairly unorganized but I think seeing how much work have to do in the next four weeks has made us feel a little more confident. I signed up to do layout with two others, more because no one else was volunteering than out of interest. We have to write two reviews to be handed in every week plus more just so we have enough for our 120 page guide by the end of the month. So I probably won't have a lot of time for blogging, sorry for those who wanted to live vicariously through me. I got my German sim card yesterday so my phone is fully functioning again. Let me know if you want my number. Sorry if there are more mistakes that usual in this post, blogger is not loading very well on my phone.
