I could sit here and ramble on about my self but that would bore even the most forbearing of us. But allow me to bring you up to speed. I'm just starting to figure out this business most call family -In doing so I've met some pretty amazing people along the way. Come join me as I awkwardly navigate through this conundrum known as life finding family, friends, and a home while trying not to be arrested, lost, or killed in Deutschland. Still learning deutsch alongside my man Ludwig. Let's watch and see what happens -Wir wollen gehen!
German soldiers, Stalingrad.
Stalingrad is one of my favourite WW2 battles (insofar as one can enjoy bloodbaths when one ostensibly isn’t Elizabeth Báthory) because it’s so… war. When I think of war, I think of Stalingrad. Battles being fought for a few inches of concrete, soldiers dying to defend a few feet of broken glass.

For Kel and her Greifswald lurv
‘The forest of dead at Katyn,’ a Nazi propaganda poster depicting the Katyn massacre of Polish officers at the hands of the Soviets.
On 5 March 1940, Stalin signed their [The Poles] death warrant—an NKVD order condemning 21,857 prisoners to “the supreme penalty: shooting.” They had been condemned as “hardened and uncompromising enemies of Soviet authority.”
Something like how I picture the take down happening
GO HOME KOSTIK!
I’m so hungry and no one will decide where they want to eat!!
Anyone have any suggestions for food in Munich?
Haven’t eaten since we got off the plane AND EVERYTHING SMELLS WONDERFUL!!
Any good food down near Zeneltistraße?
We might be having to leave sooner than I thought… a lot sooner
w-wait… wait what?!
No no no no no not yet! There are still so many people I haven’t gotten to say goodbye to yet! Like my sister or Kelsey or Canavino or East or or or ANYBODY FROM WORK!!
We can come back but that won’t be until later and I don’t know how much sooner than later! WHAT IF EVERYONE’S GONE BY THEN?!
MY HEART IS BREAKING!!!!!
Hopefully this is self-explanatory
THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER!
This is the picture of the day! CANAVINO YOU GET NO SYMPATHY FROM
So we just got back from dinner, now covered in tomatoes
Let me tell you something, I had NO idea anyone here, in America, in the southeast, in Georgia, took UEFA so seriously. Okay, yeah, that’s a little ignorant of me, but when redneck-racist-Republicans are all that’s around I never really figured there was anyone around here who knew what football/soccer was, nevertheless actually watched it.
I mean, Jesus, I thought the Yankee’s/Redsox rumbles where bad. Ain’t got shit on what we just came from.
Caz & Me
When Germany lost
Me: I told you I had a bad feelin’ about this game, bro.
Caz: Verpiss dich!
That terrible moment when Canavino calls you all the way from Chicago
JUST TO RUB IT IN
I HOPE SPAIN MURDERS YOU ITALY!
