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 class 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 class. 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

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 […]

Hi there! It’s been a busy, but exciting, week! I actually spent this past weekend not on campus, but at a camp in Newville, PA. DiscipleMakers, the organization that runs our campus’s Christian Fellowship, had their annual Women’s Conference! I had previously attended their Fall Conference and end-of-the-year conference known as ‘Focus’ last year, but […]

Extravaganza & Art Trip

posted in Natalie Zhang

The past week has been really tough. Mid-terms, assignments, painful transition from spring break to intensive studies… But in reality, “intensive studies” are not that bad, the worst thing is feeling lazy and tired all the time plus procrastinating guiltily. Well, at least everything is getting better now and life is as great as it should […]

Here’s a fun fact: Moroccans consume about 37 kilograms of sugar per capita each year; during Ramadan, that number jumps up to 95 thousand tons overall. This is why Morocco has become one of the world’s largest sugar consumers and, after two months living on a purely Moroccan diet, I can wholeheartedly vouch for this […]

Meaningful Saturday

posted in Kofi Boateng

  Once upon a time, there was a queen bee who lived in a hive of familiar bees, full of sweet, sweet honey flowing here and there…seemingly never ending. But one day, things turned for the worst. All of the honey that was produced was taken away by unwelcome strangers. Frightened by what might become […]
