“I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”—Sister Joan Chittister, Catholic Nun (via timehasflewn)
The au pairs on tumblr are the best and worse people on this website. On one hand you have the cool ones, the ones that I follow, and on the other hand when you look in the tag you see all this whining and straight up tackiness.
I met this girl from China today who is an au pair for a friend of my HM and good god I pitied her. She wasn’t having a good time and she works on the weekends, which is unfortunate because she’s supposed to have those days off. I told her I’d take her out partying and shit, but I don’t think she drinks alcohol so I dunno how we’re gonna have a good time…maybe I’ll get drunk. Anyway, I’m pretty sure I have a pretty great set up here. Working no more than 5 hours a day, I can go out on weekdays and weekends are off, middle of the city. Free everythang.
My french friend and I were talking about dicks (penises) when we were in the Reeperbahn next to three of these german guys having beers. lol, she was telling me about this Moroccan guy who she boinked and she said his dick was so huge but she liked it and omg omg, she said she’s scared of sleeping with a lot of black guys because their dicks are so big and I told her that my dad had a big dick and we just both started laughing because she found it so weird that I saw my dads dick.
I’m going to try this thing where I try to be what other people expect me to be. Like, a lot of people tell me I look cool but I know they’re disappointed when they get to know me, so I’m going to try and be cool. I’m going to be like Grace Jones. My host mom told me that she went to Elton Johns party and sat next to Grace and Grace told my hm: DAHLING, GRACE IS GOING 2 GO WHERE SHE’S MEANT TO GO” And my hm asked her: WHERE? and Grace was all “ON THE DAHNCE FLOOR DAHLING” and she went on the dance floor with Grace jones and fucking danced with her. So, I’m going to be Grace Jones from now on.
Just finished talking to my host mom after dinner: We always do this. And she was telling me all about the cool places to go partying because I’m so over the Reeperbahn and so she’ll send me a message and then she was telling me how she danced with GRACE FUCKING JONES AND BETH FUCKING DITTO at Elton Johns party ffs, she’s so cool.
LOL, So here’s what happened. I went down I was like “yo, gurl you got me awl kinds ah fuqed up, y u sending me mixed signals Anne I thought we wuz homegurlsz” den she was lyke “gurl u gotta communicate bettah wit me, turn yo shitty azz phone awn gurl, gimme yo bank account numbah gurl” I was lyke okay you don’t has to feel weird around me jus tell me wut yu need str8 up i ain’t lyke dese other beechiz, its hard to offend me qurl, dw, i got yo back okey. So denn she was liok okay, yuh staying up in my crib for a year, and i’m liok, gurl i gotchu, we gon has dah tyme of our lives togethah. Yea boi, das what happen wit mah host mom.
sticking to your decisions is a big part of being an adult. you`ve given yourself a task - au pairing for this family. you spent time learning german and spent those weeks working for them and you stated several times that you love the children. walking out on this could lead to a pattern of quitting. and the truth is that most jobs have a disappointing aspect to them and no one can promise you that your next family will be better. +german guys are hot. so i think you should stay.
oh shiit, that’s so nice of you thank you for your advice. I KNOW THIS IS WHY I CAN’T CALL MYSELF AN ADULT. I’m so indecisive and my head hurts an everything hurts. But are the men worth it? JESUS, IS THE PEGGY SUE BARTENDER WORTH IT HIS HOT ASS. Come off of anonymous and I will private message you pleaseeeeeeee.
oh shit. I feel like I’m going to cry and throw up and now my shoulders really hurt because I am really stressed out about this thing. Shit, help me. I am both physically and emotionally distressed. Last week my host parents were telling me they’ll give me another two weeks to see if I will work out with the family, and so during this week I thought A LOT and I figured, hey we don’t work as a match, they’re cool as hell, young (40’s), easy to talk to (the mom) and generally alright but then I listed the negatives: lazy, complain about foolishness, overreact, don’t like my quietness/aloofness on the weekends, kind of clingy.
So now, a week later, my host mom is telling me she wants to take me to the visa office to get my yearly visa so that I can stay here for a year…what happened in this week that she suddenly decided that she wants to keep me around? I don’t understand where all of this is coming from. I made the decision to leave and now I’m questioning myself because of this. I CAN’T MAKE DECISIONS ON MY OWN GIVE ME ADVICE.
Germany is a wonderful country and Hamburg is a wonderful city. I would totally come to Hamburg/Berlin to study but I don’t think it’s ideal to be an au pair. Basically, the city is so fun and there’s things to do but when you’re an au pair you have to work. You have to spend hours watching children and 9 times out of 10 it’s not really fun, so you begin to feel like you’re trapped here and there’s no way out. I’m beginning to feel like this and really starting to wonder if I’ll feel better in another country with cooler host parents or if au pairing in general is not for me.
oh yeahhh, about the guy who gave me his number. Okay so I just finished saying goodbye to my French friend for the night and was reading my book. THe train would come in 7 minutes. Then 1 minute before the train came this man, He was soooooo tall, I would say 6’3 which is fucking perfect, blonde, with a white shirt and denim pants, said to me in English! (i think he was German, but how did he know I spoke ENglish? Oh maybe because my book was in English, whatever) “You dropped your bookmark” with this smile on his face so fucking charming FUCK IT WAS CUTE and I was all “Oh, thank you” with a short smile and fuck. Okay so we both went into the same train car and I stood up but he sat down a few seats away from me and I felt him looking at me lol, was so awkward. Then I went to go look at the bookmark and jesus christ what was on it A FUCKING PHONE NUMBER 12 DIGITS BRUH, I was like……oh shit, did he just give me his phone number! hahaha long story short, I can’t find that shit :D
