I was trying to write a brief summary of what I did in my study abroad this summer. Here’s what I came up with: This summer I went on a whirl-wind adventure to the wonderful and mysterious country of Greece. From Athens, to Crete, and the most beautiful island in the world Santorini, I ate, lived, and had adventures for five weeks. This included hiking the biggest gorge in Europe,...

First World Problems
This happened earlier this week, but I’m just now finding the time to write. When you think of thefts that happen around Athens, pardon me if this is ignorant, but you don’t tend to think of Target as the setting. In fact, I’ve never felt as though any of my stuff was threatened in any part of Athens I’ve driven through or stopped at. So please explain to me WHY and HOW...

What a crazy weekend
This weekend reminded me that everything happens for a reason, treat others how you would want to be treated, never assume, the joys of being at the right place at the right time, school spirit never dies, and that you’re nothing without the people around you that care about you. Ah, life. You never cease to surprise me!

Welp, its day one on my journey. Will it last four days? 10 days? Or the rest of the year? It’s interview day—no, not just AN interview. THE interview. The one I’ve been day dreaming about for six months. The one I have ran through my head 100 times. The one that made me lose sleep last night. The one that got me hopping out of bed at 8AM although the interview isn’t until...
