Hello! I’m Julia and in 2 weeks I’m turning 24. I was born in the city of Sumy, Ukraine and the last 7 years I lived in Kiev. Now I study at European College of Liberal Arts in Berlin. I love this city and my university and want to show you how I usually spend my workday. It’s going to be Decenber, 3rd. But since it’s Friday, along with studing, some other interesting things are waiting for me!
So, the first thing that I see when I wake up is this wall with photos and postcards from my friends. By the way, I don’t need an alarm clock to wake up.
I share my room with a girl but she’s already left for school. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to see her and she’s pretty.
I open my window and this is what I see. That building is Dormitory 2. The one I live in looks about the same.
Heading to take a shower. The only thing that makes me upset about the dormitory is that the shower is located on the main floor and my room is on the third floor. But these huge windows compensate for that.
My body butter helps me wake up fast.
My tram leaves in an hour which means that I’m not going to have a normal breakfast/lunch. My stomach will hate me!
Checking my mail…
And checking the schedule. My first class is taking place in Hamburger Bahnhof Museum and I have to find the way there. This web site helps me a lot.
I am a poscard freak and keep sending Facebook postcards to all my friends. The one I sent to Kiev’s safely arrived.
Now I have to paint a woman on my face…
My bycicle. Not today, friend, sorry.
This is my cafeteria.
There are so many tasty things here! But I have to take my lunchbox and run. Each student whose classes take place outside the university are provided with lunchboxes. Mine contains a croissant, an orange and some other stuff which I don’t really like.
My neighbourhood is called Pankow.
I stopped by at the Lotto store to get a month-ticket. It costs 53$ and 50$ will be payed back by my university.
This is my tram. Right on time.
This is Ira, my Russian-speaking friend from Odessa.
Taking an electric train.
Next to Ira there is Asya, a Russian American.
I’m at Hauptbahnhof station. There are all kinds of stores here and all of them are decorated for Christmas.
The Hauptbahnhof from the side.
This is the museum. It used to be a railway station, by the way.
In the center you see my teacher and the class is called Representation which in fact is History of Art.
My American group-mate Paris.
I don’t really like modern art…
This class flew by.
Passing by a fashionable cafe by Sarah Weiner. I haven’t been there…
A parking lot near the museum (our teacher kindly offered to give us a ride to the university).
It is convenient to have your own car but you may get caught in a traffic jam and miss something. That’s what we did and missed 15 minutes of our next class.
This is my favorite class, it is called Outsiders. Here we watch movies about outsiders and discuss and analyze their problems. Yesterday we watched the Legend of 1900.
And I’m eating my orange…
Reading the information stand.
It’s 5.15 p.m. and I’m going to take my 50$ back.
Back in the dormitory. This is our common room where we hang out with friends. Do you see that fir tree? They are going to install it for Christmas!
I still have some time before dinner so I go read news on the Internet.
I found a picture of me posted a professor who visited our university some time ago. It feels good, you know!
A photo taken by a web camera.
Packing up some stuff for the gym. It’s free for all the students.
Back in the cafeteria. This is my first meal for the whole day! I’m so hungry!
I’m back at the university. Now we are going to watch cartoons and one of them is ‘Winnie-the-Pooh’ with English subtitles. It’s going to be fun!
Considering the fact that about 50 students study at my university, a real crowd has come to watch the cartoons!
After that I go to the gym. It’s 9.15 p.m.
There were very few people there, as if I trained in my private gym! I’m done and it’s 10.30 p.m.
Check out my dream abs!
Quickly go home and take a shower.
Before sleep, I decide to sing for a while. Yes, I sing in the choir. I love singing no matter what song our teacher chooses.
