Going Home

It is finally time to go home. I am really excited. I don’t think I’m as homesick as some, but I am excited to see my family and to sleep in my own bed. No offense to those I traveled with, I am just sick of you guys. We have been together for a tad […]

Finals at Jacobs

This week is finals week and it’s a bit stressful. I will probably just end up on a rant about my one class, Bioprocess Engineering. They do things a bit differently here at Jacobs. At Lafayette they give you many chances, in most classes, to bump up your grade, whether it’s with problem sets, quizzes, […]

Goodbye: it sucks in every language, you know. No matter what noises you choose to emit from your mouth in order to express it, goodbyes will always be bittersweet, full of endless hugs, tears, and “remember that time”‘s. When I hugged my host parents goodbye, they smiled and said, “Until next time, N’shah Allah (God […]

It’s All Frarabic to Me

Two weeks: that is all the time I have left in Morocco. And after all the time that I have spent here, I still feel there is so much I don’t know about this country. For one, I still can’t comprehend how Moroccan girls manage to stay so slim on a diet that consists primarily […]

Russia Orientation

Our last excursion as a class was to St. Petersburg, Russia. I’m really happy we went. It’s a whole other world out there. We got a lot of Western Europe; it was time for some Eastern Europe. I think people in the States are so against Russia and Communism; we are taught to fear both. […]

To follow up with my post about blind booking, I might as well let you know how it went. Stuttgart is the capital of Baden-Württemberg (a state within Germany). The city is in a valley between hills and hills covered in vineyards. It’s actually in a really beautiful location. Anyways, because we did blind booking […]

The Day I Got Married

It’s a hot, sunny day in Rabat. The busy souks and white medina walls, usually vibrant, look pale and dingy in the brilliant sunshine. I blink at these passing sights from the back seat as Fatima-Zahra, the director of my study abroad program, inches her car through the bustling streets. We finally find a parking […]

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 […]

Blind Booking

tagged with , , ,

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 […]

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 […]
