Sunday was a lay around day, although I did have lunch with my neighbor! I think he felt bad because he never sees me cook anything (I don't have pots and pans). We chatted over beef and potatoes and he told me I can use his pots and pans if I want to cook something, so I was excited for that. My mom sent me a bunch of recipes to try out. 

Monday I got a real project at work! I'm going to be defining the trends between the trace of the bending stiffness matrix and the critical bending load of a composite. Lots of coding ahead! 

Tuesday was another normal day at work. I talked with another of my colleagues at lunch. After work I skyped with my mom for a bit then went downtown to buy a new camera. I went to Media Markt (where I got my phone) but everything was too expensive, so I went over to Saturn at the mall (basically Best Buy). I found a Nikon 5100, plus a soft case and a memory card on sale, so  i considered it a win (picture attached). I had planned to go grocery shopping and make some food at home that night, but I was ravenous and still downtown, so I decided to go to Doener Station and got a yummy Doener, which is like a Gyro but with cabbage. Basically it's super yummy and that's all you need to know. Blake and I finalized our plans to go to Amsterdam for our 2 year anniversary Tuesday night, as well. Super excited!

Wednesday I worked on my code some from home, the statistics part is the hardest so I spent a good chunk of time working on that. My boss also told me we have a help desk service for Patran that I can email to figure out my other problems I was having. I ran some errands too, went grocery shopping and refilled my mensa card (for buying food in the student cafeteria on campus but also for laundry. Kinda like boiler express) so I could do some laundry for Berlin. I only really have 2 weeks of clothes in some categories, so I have to wash or I won't have enough to pack. I also wandered around the nature preserve by my dorm and the city with my new camera and took a bunch of pictures! They're on the bottom :) Then I made my 5 minute steaks and root veggie combo I bought at the grocery store for dinner. Very yum! I shared with my neighbor who shared with me on Sunday.

Today (Thursday) I worked all day, and made some awesome progress on my code, hopefully I'll have everything done tomorrow! I got home and ate leftovers from yesterday's awesome dinner and did a load of laundry. Then I packed for Berlin and planned out stuff we wanted to do with Blake over Skype.

I leave on the 8:00 PM train tomorrow and am meeting Blake at the airport to spend a lovely weekend in the city. I will be sure to take lots of pictures and post how it went when I get back!
