Mainau island

Yesterday was one of those real German sundays. For those who haven't found it out the bad way (Sunday hunger games, that is), school, work, shopping and such just not gonna happen here on Sundays. Everybody is supposed to stay home and have fun with the family. I don't really have my family here with me, but I do have Matt and Kyle, haha, so after hosting about 10 people over for pancakes in the morning, we went on a bike trip to Mainau. Turns out, I have been doing injustice to this paradise island the whole time! The flower parks and butterfly house and all can be so much fun. And the Mainau-puns, of course. :)

We're also second week into the new semester now. UniKonstanz is just so behind with the academic calendar, that while still sorting out what classes to take, my home Uni is already reminding me of reporting my grades. Everything hasn't gone as smoothly as I was hoping it would, though. Basically, University of Konstanz for dummies, Chapter One: Registration for classes here goes by the simple rule of some students being more equal than others. Erasmus people sadly aren't very high on that food chain. Whereas in E-Stonia, if you're too slow at the online-registration at midnight, you're simply out of luck, the period in Konstanz is a pure madhouse. So far I have witnessed the following methods of getting your name in the list: online registration, emails to the professor, complaining to the coordinators, showing up and lottery. And in the end, the one who figures out which one it is this time, wins. Fun times. :D
