Bye Bye Bangalore, Bangalore Goodbye…


I'm leaving early. I'm leaving early, after one session instead of two, and it's so bittersweet, because there are things I love about this country -- the food, the constant respect I receive, the way everything lights up and twinkles at night -- and things I truly despise -- the sheer number of people and cars, the...

I’m Not Dead…


...I just have E. Coli. So that's been fun. Almost better though! I know you were all worried (pff) so I thought I'd post here quickly. We went to a village yesterday and I wanted to stay forever. And I had aloo gobi for the first time yesterday and again today, and...India is much better when... Continue Reading →

God Bless You All (Day 3)

We went to a Catholic cathedral today and I was almost in tears because everyone there was so focused on their devotion. It was a truly beautiful thing to see. The churches... Continue Reading →

I'm sitting in the Frankfurt Airport eating pineapple slices and drinking beer. It seemed like a good purchase at the time. To be honest, it still... Continue Reading →

Oh. Bye!


I leave in 2 days. I don't entirely know how this all snuck up on me so fast, because it feels like yesterday I was pulling all my hair out studying for exams and suddenly...my bag is almost completely packed (full of malaria pills and anti-diarrhea medications). I've been trying to take mental pictures/videos for... Continue Reading →

I’m Still Alive


In case y'all were worried, I'm still alive! But I have had an exciting two weeks, so here it goes!1. I hate faxing. I have spent at least 15 dollars in the past week faxing paperwork to my doctor, my study abroad program office, and the other university I had to be "accepted" to in order to... Continue Reading →

India


So uh...in case you guys were wondering... I'M GOING TO INDIA. This summer. Study abroad. INDIAAAAAAAA. Whatevs. I found out today while I was studying for an exam (I may have been so heavily caffeinated that upon receiving the email I had an excitement- and caffeine-induced seizure in the library) and was immediately distracted, so...
