Windows facing the Tübingen marketplace

It’s been a week and a half without a post! Where went my resolution? What happened to the promise I made myself to post three times a week? Perhaps that’s a bit much, you think. Perhaps you’re right. But there should be some consistency, should there not?

So here I have a post that’s not even really a food post. I’m so sorry! I should really take my camera to work and show you all the random Japanese sweets and bento lunches I eat every day. It’s pretty impressive, but I’m falling apart from being so super busy.

Four jobs you’ve had in your life (all in the past!)

  1. First job ever was in a hamburger trailer at the Oregon State Fair. I quit halfway through the two week job, because of the unappetizing conditions and my over-friendly boss. I have not eaten at the state fair since.
