Australia Update!

After the long and hard process of turning in all of my paperwork for this summer’s study abroad adventure, I am finally free of bureaucratic nonsense and can start actually planning my trip! Since my last post, I learned a few things about Australia and the places I will be going including: Since (almost) everything […]

Barcelona: Round 2

After our time in Madrid, we were feeling at least a little better so we were able to get up and go on our super early flight and not feel dead the rest of the day. After a healthy helping of Starbucks, we walked over to our hostel and got ready to go on the […]

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Since I have a really boring day of classes ahead and have spent much of yesterday just retyping my notes from these past three weeks (aka trying to do that every few minutes and then giving up and watching Whose Line is it Anyway? instead), I decided that I would make a physical list of […]

It probably happened somewhere around the middle of October when the other students were […]

Toussaint: Berlin

Toussaint: Prague

Okay, I am finally getting around to writing posts for the Toussaint week even though I have been back for two weeks…sorry about that! Classes are really busy after a break because they want to be able to cram in two weeks worth of information into one day of class, so I’ve been listening to […]
