This is a fraction of what I've been receiving the past few days/weeks through the App Store and email. It sucks, and it's impacting sales massively (to the point where it makes me question whether continued support is even worth it), but just got to hold it out.

My flatmate's alarm clocks have been running at weird times in the past few days - once at 12.30am this morning and now at 6.30am - now starting to get a tension headache out of this. That's in addition to her 2 to 3 am alarms that so far I havrn't been also awake for for a few days.
Last night coming home was a nightmare.
For example, with trying to get to Ostkreuz from anywhere on the east: You need to get out of the SBahn, walk a few minutes, wait along with a large bunch of people to take a bus and you are dropped off only near the Ostkreuz SBahn. Then it's about a 5 minute walk to Ostkreuz.
On the way home, someone trapped a beer bottle on the SBahn doors making it delayed. Then I literally had to change trains again because of line restrictions on the way home.
The meetup with several other Aussies 🇦🇺 was OK had some nice conversations with folks, my first with 'my kind' in the 15 months that I've been here (and in total, my second Aussie meetup ever after being overseas for different years in various countries).

Ich weiß das wird knapp, aber Immoscout und ähnliche Plattformen sind echt schwierig, deshalb will ich es trotzdem mal hier versuchen:
Da ich im August/September eine Ausbildung zur Fachinformatikerin in FFM anfange, suche ich dringend eine kleine Einzimmerwohnung oder einen Platz in einer autismusfreundlichen WG in #Frankfurt, bis zu 500€ kalt.

Am dritten Tag hinterließ meine Mitbewohnerin ihren eigenen Müll an der Tür. Es ist fast so, als würde sie erwarten, dass ich ihn wie eine Dienstmädchen herunterbringe...

Ah my WG life here is now affected by a new loud neighbour (I'm guessing someone in their 70s) and my usually sour flatmate being back,
Just realized what those super large cone things (Schultüte) are for when I was at Idee! Cute tradition.
> The Schultüte tradition goes back to the early 1800s in Germany. On their first day of school, children traditionally receive a cone shaped bag or “Tüte” filled with treats and toys, to make starting real school just a little bit sweeter. Before the beginning of the School Year in Germany, the stores are filled with a variety of cones… both filled and unfilled…

"Death lists", body bags, quicklime: Nazi group prepared further attacks
