sheepworld

I bought a blanket yesterday, and it is adorable:

sheepworld blanket: ohne dich ist alles doof (without you, everything is dumb)

“Ohne dich ist alles doof” means “Without you, everything is dumb.”  The arrows pointing to the other objects on the blanket connect text that says, for instance, “Little flowers: dumb” (“Blümchen: doof”).

I’ve liked sheepworld (the brand of this product line) for a while; I first became acquainted with its products by, I think, seeing a pencil case with a similar design to this blanket that a German girl at my highschool owned.  I thought it was adorable yet meaningful then, and I still think so now.  Plus, look at that little sheep.  I think he needs a hug.  *hugs sheep*

The inscription kind of sums up the homesickness I’ve been trying to work through the past few weeks in a nice, simple sentence.  I’m slowly working through it and learning to at least appreciate that I’m here on a yearlong adventure I’ll never have the opportunity to have again.  I want to make the most of it.  But I miss you all at home.  My family, my friends, my hometown, my dog.  But I will do my best to make the most of it.  I will learn a LOT here.  And learning is one of my favorite hobbies.
