Globus Notebooks – Awkward English

Globus Notebooks – Awkward English

It is a glorious time here in Germany, even though students in Rheinland-Pfalz just got out of school, it seems, due to the staggered vacation scheduling (which I will probably post about in more detail later), students in Nordrhein-Westfalen are already heading back! This means that, even though everyone here is deep into vacation, there are school supplies everywhere!

Awkward English #4 – And other discount store finds

I guess they were going for a Boyz II Men vibe… I love going into discount stores in pretty much any country, because you always find the weirdest crap – I say crap, because it will likely break on you in a week.  It still looks hilarious, though. You can turn your iPhone into an earPhone! (cue awkward laughter) They look suuuuuper creepy though. Inspirational throw pillow anyone? The first line threw me off, because it’s a little demanding. I’ve…
