Just a quick heads up, how are you friends doing? Hope ya'll doing great and enjoying the summertime. It's been a while I didn't write here so, thought to give a quick update just to say hi and let you know I'm alive. I am still in Berlin, enjoying the summertime with friends. Friday I was at philharmonique with my (girl)friend, it was a ghospel show, super awsome it blew my mind. Saturaday I was at a vernissage, then went for dinner with  some friends and after that went clubbin. Sunday it was mostly chill., went for lunch then headed back home and slept. Easy one :) life's good.
You win with my favorite use of parentheses this week with "(girl)friend."

The term, IMO is plain weird, sometimes it just makes me laugh because it fails so much at conveying the type of relation one may entertain with a female. It just seems dated so I did a little digging to see where it comes from.
A girlfriend is a female friend, acquaintance or partner, usually a female companion with whom one is platonically, romantically or sexually involved.

The word "girlfriend" was first used in 1863 as "a woman's female friend in youth.” In 1922, the word girlfriend was used to mean a man's "sweetheart".
