So this week I just kinda did stuff. It was realllllllly hot mid-last week, like 30+ hot. And it really sucks when there's no air conditioning. Sitting in an office all day in that heat is mind-melting. And the worst part was that after work I got stuck on the train for an extra hour with a billion people because of delays.
Also, follow me on Twitter.
The weekend was pretty ok. Went shopping on Saturday and bought a new shirt. Not too terribly exciting stuff. Prices here are about the same as in Canada I think. Some stuff is a bit cheaper and some stuff is a bit more expensive, but everything is pretty standard.
Oh, I also got my haircut on Saturday. So before I came to Berlin one of my biggest worries was what I was going to do about my hair, because I normally cut it every month or so, and since I'm here for four months I wasn't sure where I would get my haircut. I honestly was so worried I was gonna get a crappy haircut.
Ended up ok.
My flatmate recommended me to this place, so I went and got my haircut. My hair was getting really thick and gross, so I had to get it cut. Actually the barber(ess?) even remarked that my hair was really thick and it was "amazing".
I honestly don't think it's amazing to have thick hair >_> Gets so annoying. But anyways I think my haircut is ok. It's a bit shorter than I wanted, but it's actually not bad. So I'm content. Yesterday I went to watch the movie Man of Steel in Potsdamer Platz.
Berlin looks pretty nice at night.
And omg. Guys. So the North American stereotype is that everyone is super fat and eats tons of unhealthy foods and stuff. Especially in theatres and stuff when you buy popcorn and drinks. Like the extra large popcorn in Hong Kong is like the same size as the small in Canada, so I figured it was a NA thing to have big portions.
But no, I was totally wrong. So we ordered popcorn and stuff yesterday, and when we got our food we were so surprised as to how huge it was.
And I almost single handedly finished all of it. God I feel so fat.
The drink that came with it was just as tall, but not as wide. But it was still really freaking big. Like my mind was blown. The movie itself was alright. I felt like some parts of it was too over-exaggerated, but overall I would say it was a decent movie. Dark Knight > Man of Steel though IMO, in terms of movies and heroes.
Also I got a StarCraft beer opener at Meltdown.
