Anyway, school was especially fun on Friday because Matt's capstone partner was gone so I got to fill in. Right now they're working on building something that can get this 3.7 million pound machine:
In and out of this one safely & easily:
(Trust me, it's a lot more complex than it sounds--I just wanted to spare you all the gory details.)
It was fantastic! We had so much fun making friends with everyone, hanging out with Matthias and gaining 7 pounds each from the delicious German food. Matthias immediately became one of my favorite people in the world when he told me that I'd be able to get around Germany saying "ick" instead of "ich." (I've been trying unsuccessfully for the past year to learn how to hock up a hairball to pronounce "ich." It means "I" in German, which means my learning has been stalled while I've focused on trying to learn that basic little word haha.)
Matt's taking Matthias to school tomorrow and we're hoping we'll get to see him in Munich next year!
