Well, it's three weeks until I head to Sussex for session 1 this summer and I finally got the darned group flight forms in! Those were a pain in the butt to figure out, especially since my family only just figured out our vacation plans for after I'm done. And those plans are an epic jaunt around the UK, with maybe a trip to Paris! In the meantime, though, i am quite excited (and nervous) for Sussex. This will be the first time I am alone abroad, and I'll have to navigate and manage…Continue
Hey! Anyone else going to Valparaiso, or even Santiago for the U.S. Fall Semester?? I'm so excited to be going!
This morning at 11:35 I finished my last final exam for the school year. I am now a senior in college, and I will never take another June final again. Thank goodness! And though I am thrilled by both of those facts, my brain (after taking a good 2 hour break from any thoughts at all) has now completely occupied with England and new friends and world travel. It’s a busy place now.
I haven’t had many adventures, so it’s safe to say that in two weeks when I go to study abroad at the…Continue

Especially when they are always crowded buses.
In three more days I will have been in BsAs for two months. I tell you this because it still seems crazy that I am living here and even crazier that I have been here that long. Things for the most part are starting to develop a pattern. It starts to feel more and more every day that I really live here and am not a tourist here for a couple of days. However, there are still those occasions…Continue
