I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”
Thank you for this
"I gave him one of my DJ necklaces, where it has headphones, and I gave it to him, and I guess he was showing everybody, like ‘Look what Paola gave me!’ And then he’s so cute, ‘cause he’s like, ‘This is the only thing I can give you.’ And it was really sweet and I made it into a necklace."
