Adjusting to Life in Munich
Aside from the expenses, Munich is such a beautiful city.. somewhere I could see myself living long term. This month has gone by fast already and I can't believe I only have nine months left. Classes started last week and getting back into the rhythm of studying after five long months of vacation isn't easy. I'm taking three German classes through my American Program (JYM) and two art classes in German at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität. Most of my classes are only once a week, for 3 hours at a time, which is really different than at my home University. Students are expected to study more on their own time so there are less assignments. And I love the fact that I have Fridays off so I can plan some long weekend trips to different cities in Germany.
