Fight for Class

posted in Natalie Zhang

Happy Tuesday! Today is the day for rising sophomores to register classes for this fall. It is both an exciting day and an extremely exhausting day.   Rising sophomores always register after rising seniors and rising juniors, which is reasonable, but it’s really stressful for us. Last night, I checked the spots left in each […]

An Open Letter to the Boy Who Molested a Hamas Rocket

You don’t know me, but this past January you did something that’s been rattling around my mind ever since. It was the middle of the afternoon in Sderot, Israel. We were on separate tours of the same local police station. I had no idea what our guide was about to show us, but I can […]

Hiya readers!! Guess what – I survived course registration! It’s always a fairly stressful time for me, but everything always works out in the end. This year, as a rising senior, you’d think everything would go as smooth as… as… well, something really smooth. It didn’t quite do that, but the final product that I […]

Blurred Lines

I have been around the world in fourteen days. Well, okay, so I lied—but after two weeks of trekking through four cities and two islands, sleeping in hostels and airport terminals, living out of a well-worn duffel and hauling it on ferries, trains, buses, and endless walks, it sure feels like it. I spent my […]

April sun, April rain, and April snow

posted in Natalie Zhang

For people who just came out of the cold winter, warm sunshine is so precious and huggable. Every time I walk into the sunshine, I just feel like melting in it and flying with the fragrant breeze. Grass is getting greener and greener, so the winter dull ground finally gets its lively wig back. I […]

Blind Booking

I know that Lafayette had theirs ages ago… but this week is Jacobs’ Spring Break. Casey and I decided to do blind booking. It’s a really neat idea. It’s like roulette with airplane tickets. It’s with German Wings and they give you a list of places that you could possibly get and you only know where […]

Our excursions seem to be more frequent now. It’s a little annoying sometimes because we miss a lot of classes and then have to make up classes the week after. The price you pay for traveling. For this trip, however, we left on a Friday so we didn’t miss any classes. Helgoland is Germany’s only […]

Struggles, Fear… Creativity?

Hello friendly followers! Isn’t it great how spring-like it’s becoming? That only took a few months struggling through the bitter cold… there really is something about greater enjoyment following hardship though. If it had simply stopped snowing in January/early February, and gotten a bit warmer in February and March, this lovely sunshine-y day would not […]

Ancient Religion in Modern Society

posted in Natalie Zhang

I was EXTREMELY surprised when I saw monks walking on the quad. Before I came to the U.S., I had been to a lot of Buddhist monasteries, but I never expected to see monks on campus! Well, to be honest, I don’t really understand why they came here, since monks are supposed to stay away […]

I love the French language. I think my ears sighed when they heard French as we walked off the bus in Brussels. German is just so harsh! Our second excursion was to Brussels, Belgium. It’s a city with Dutch and French as its main languages. We had European Union tours and talks for a majority […]
