Long before we even had dinner, first pictures of fireworks, and happy-new-year greetings covered my Facebook newsfeed. Hong Kong and many other countries in Asia were already in the new year while I still finished my U.S. university applications. Because we were hosting a rather large amount of small children, my family and our guests finished our firecrackers before midnight. At 12 o’clock then we could watch the New Year Celebrations in Berlin, and the wonderful view over the center of Dresden. The colorful wafts of mist and the shower of red and blue sparks over opera, castle and co. were simply beautiful. Now the time is set. 144 more days till graduation. May this year be a blast. Happy 2013!
