The instant cure for the blues, I have discovered it. If you are feeling down for whatever reason (particularly if it is wedding-related) sneak away and take a few twirls in your wedding gown/dress/pantsuit/whatever.
I am an American ex-pat living in Berlin. I left a very small town in the South and moved to Germany very spur of the moment. I knew no one, had no place to live and didn't speak the language. It was the best decision I have ever made. What was supposed to be a 6-month once-in-a-lifetime experience has turned into my everyday life. I have never felt so connected to a city and culture as I do here. I'm currently working as a kindergarten teacher and once I get my residency, hope to continue my studies in Reformation History.
