Tummy Trouble


Warning: Diarrhea talk below.It's hard to love this place when it's essentially eating your stomach. I've been having a pretty rough time for the last 36 hours, mostly sleeping and laying in my room, running to the bathroom every couple hours. But today is the first day of classes, so we walked 3 kilometers (about... Continue Reading →

God Bless You All (Day 3)


Religion in India is a way of life, and the people here practice it with an intensity I've never experienced before in America. 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 →

First Impressions


...aka a whole bunch of babbling about this beautiful, crazy city. I sent my family an email and figured instead of writing a new post, I'd just post parts of it here (lightly edited for clarification purposes) because I'm exhausted and it's only 8 pm. The sun sets here around 6:30, so...it's hard to stay... Continue Reading →

I guess I can cross "drink a Heineken in Germany" off my bucket list. While I'm at it, I could create a bucket list... So I'm halfway to Bangalore! 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...

Goodbye


I'm leaving Seattle and I want to cry. This has never happened. The Ice is Getting Thinner by Death Cab for Cutie came on my iPod, which doesn't help since it's full of tragedy and sadness and practically pulls the tears out of your eyeballs anyway. I've never had a great experience in Seattle. I... Continue Reading →

Randomly Selected


I'm flying to Seattle today! Yay! I'm going to Bumbershoot, a music festival in Seattle, and I'm also going to (surprise!) an international cat show. My gal pal Haylie and I are going to frolic and make flower chains for our hair and be generally delightful, so look forward to some fun posts about that!... Continue Reading →

Forget It, Cappy. It’s Just Chi-Town.


“Do you wanna stop viiiiiiiolence?” sang a man with long black hair on the street corner, waving a pamphlet in my face and doing a little leap/jig. That’s Chicago, now characterized in my mind by amazing food and crazy people. And train travel. I took the train across the country and visited my family north... Continue Reading →
