Helllooooooo internet world. I hope you’re having a lovely week and a great Wednesday so far. I’m a bit bummed today — it’s snowing here in the DC area, meaning that the public schools are delayed, meaning that it was for some reason a lot harder to find a substitute teaching job this morning, so I’ve been stranded at home — there’s $100 down the drain. … Continue reading Brussels (pt. II)
Holaaaaaa a todos! I hope your weekend has been lovely and your Monday isn’t too depressing. Luckily I’m not back at school yet, so I can laugh at all of you “adults” who have to work for a living! Ha! Ha ha! Ha! Thought I’d tell you another traveling story today, this time about my trip to Barcelona. This trip was a little different as, like Morocco, … Continue reading Barcelona.
Helllooooo all you lovely blog readers! I hope your afternoon is going well! I’m back for part two of my Madrid/Lisbon trip and to give you illiterate plebeians the photos that you crave! So we left Madrid on Saturday afternoon and arrived in Lisbon in about an hour by plane, which was really nice (easyjet was a surprisingly nice airline for the price). There’s a … Continue reading Lisbon.
Hey ya’ll– I do apologize for being absent for such a long time. I have to admit that I’m not the most reliable person in the world. I’m not even going to make excuses for my absence. Like, I won’t say that I did a lot of traveling within the last of my weeks and Spain and so didn’t have free time to write. I won’t … Continue reading The Capital: Madrid.
I’ve always walked through life with this skewed idea that I’m untouchable. I’ve been hurt before, yes, by many people and in many different ways. I’ve never thought of myself as immune to emotional heartache or physical pain. But in certain ways, I viewed myself outside the scope of normal human-human interaction in such a way that traditionally “bad” things couldn’t happen to me. When … Continue reading Being thankful.
Hola a todos! Welcome back to the blog — thanks for stopping by! I do appreciate it 🙂 Today I’ve got a fun post for you about my weekend in Granada. It’s been a couple of week since I’ve returned home, so sorry for the delay, but come on guys, I can’t revolve my life around ya’ll! But since I know how pick you all … Continue reading Granada means pomegranate.
Before leaving for Spain, I binge-read as many travel/study abroad blogs as possible and read countless buzz-feed type articles with titles like “10 Things To Expect From Studying Abroad” and “The 15 Things Nobody Said Would Happen When Studying Abroad”. I did my research, I read first-hand experiences, I watched Youtube videos. I was prepared … or so I thought. The truth is that nobody … Continue reading some much needed familiarity.
Dear Mons, You have really fun EDM concerts. My legs were sore for days. So thanks for that. Dear Mons hotel lady, I know it’s strange speaking Italian to us so we can sort of understand you and reply in Spanish, but you definitely ripped me off. Dear other Mons hotel lady, I get that you only speak French, but you’re sassy and I don’t … Continue reading Dear Belgium,
Today I bring you a story. A story about strength. Courage. Tenacity. And most of all….spirit. He started as a janitor. A custodian, if you will. A man with nothing but the dreams in his head, the crocs on his feet, and the vomit in the women’s bathroom. But he was a fighter. And the dreams in his head would come true. The crocs in … Continue reading a cinderella story…
Hey ya’ll! Another long one here, but don’t worry, lots of pictures! This past weekend my study abroad group went to Morocco. Let’s be real. How pretentious does it sound to say “Oh yeah, I’m going to Morocco for the weekend.” Casual. I really had no expectations for this trip. Other than the fact that it’s in Africa and is largely Muslim, I seriously didn’t … Continue reading New country, New continent: Morocco
