Mein Erste Post (My First Post)

Welcome to my blog, where I hope to chronicle my (mis) adventures learning to live in Dusseldorf, Germany. I moved here from Brooklyn, NY on New Year's Eve 2004 to live with my long-distance boyfriend, F, and to start a job as a teacher at an international school.

Before you think, "Oh, wow, the word 'post' is the same in German and in English," I must inform you that the title of this post is an example of 'Denglish'. Not to be confused with Esperanto, Denglish is an amalgam of German & English words and phrases. If you want a more thorough explanation and some other examples of Denglish see: http://www.wordspy.com/words/Denglish.asp

As I am new to the German language, I make liberal use of Denglish, and will most likely continue to do so, much to the amusement (and occasional chagrin) of F.
