More Tea on a Saturday

JAPAN | Tuesday, 8 Mar 2016 | Views [215]

I was starting to run low on tea, so on Saturday I decided to return to Mariage Frères. Only not the Mariage Frères that I'd already been to, because that would have been too easy. Recall that the website put Osaka as ... Read more >

First Line Game

JAPAN | Wednesday, 2 Mar 2016 | Views [246]

I haven’t had that much experience with different Japanese textbooks, so it’s hard for me to know what works and what doesn’t. But Tobira is starting to grate on me by not placing like concepts together. The grammars are grammars ... Read more >

Final Day in Vienna

AUSTRIA | Tuesday, 8 Dec 2015 | Views [355]

Monday morning, Delaney had a class, so I was left to fend for myself in Vienna. (Technically, I could have either remained in bed or attended her class with her, so I wasn't forced to fend for myself. But neither of those sounded like much fun.... Read more >

I never could get the hang of Thursdays

FRANCE | Monday, 28 Sep 2015 | Views [290]

Because I switched my French class, I no longer have a five hour break on Thursdays. Instead, I have a class from 10:45-12:45, and then I'm done. That class was topology. He didn't get around to defining homeomorphism, which means that the material ... Read more >

About suffering, they were never wrong, the old masters

FRANCE | Wednesday, 16 Sep 2015 | Views [240]

Sunday, Laure had to work, so she arranged for me to spend the day with some of the other anglophones from the day before. This turned out to be both Sarahs, because they were up and the other two weren’t. (To make matters worse, American Sarah ... Read more >

Aimless Wednesday

FRANCE | Sunday, 13 Sep 2015 | Views [140]

Wednesday I had no class. This was not a typical thing, but since most TDs were nonexistent the first week, it was true this week. This gave me a full day to myself. I caught up on the emails I needed to write (intended to catch up on the blog, but ... Read more >

A Saturday to call my own

FRANCE | Wednesday, 9 Sep 2015 | Views [260]

There was absolutely nothing I had to do on Saturday. No group activities or meetings with my landlady. No apartments to visit or courses to register for. Not even any homework, since the course with Christine had ended and the regular university classes ... Read more >

A Saturday not as lazy as I would have liked

FRANCE | Tuesday, 1 Sep 2015 | Views [150]

Saturday we had nothing to do until 17:00, when we were meeting at a cinema to watch Dheepan. Which gave us most of a day to ourselves. I woke up around 10, looked up a couple of destinations, and set off for Shakespeare and Company. It was ... Read more >

Dorm Living

USA | Monday, 8 Jun 2015 | Views [283]

I feel like I should begin by saying that, although I've lived on a campus for the past five years, I've never really had to deal with communal bathrooms. Maybe for a week or two at a time for previous summer programs. It's also been two years since ... Read more >

Technology and Trips

USA | Monday, 11 Aug 2014 | Views [211]

Nothing says “let's get this trip started!” quite like waiting eagerly for the mail, grabbing a new piece of technology, charging it and working to get new software on it hours before your plane to another continent leaves. Before ... Read more >

Last Opportunities

MOROCCO | Tuesday, 29 Jul 2014 | Views [247]

On Friday we met up together to go book shopping. It was either that or explore the Chellah. Erika and Cynthia had both wanted to buy books before we left, and I'm never going to vote against a bookstore.(Unless it's “who wants to go to the bookstore ... Read more >

Books and Cups

MOROCCO | Sunday, 27 Jul 2014 | Views [407]

 After class, I met up with Cynthia and Natasha for book shopping. Natasha was looking for an English/Arabic Koran for her brother and Cynthia was looking for 1001 Arabian Nights . I just like surrounding myself with books.  It had begun ... Read more >

I Miss the Mountains

MOROCCO | Thursday, 24 Jul 2014 | Views [422]

 On Saturday morning, we got up for breakfast at 8:30. They brought out orange juice and coffee and Moroccan tea. If it weren't for the orange juice and tea, the fly in the coffee would have been even more upsetting than it was. They also had a ... Read more >

Ftur in a House

MOROCCO | Monday, 14 Jul 2014 | Views [312]

 On Thursday, we were invited (several days in advance) to join Oussama at his house for Ftour. We told our host families we would be going out that night and waited around at the IES Center until 7. Fatima did come by to lock up, but this time ... Read more >

Something Next to Normal Would be OK

MOROCCO | Thursday, 3 Jul 2014 | Views [454]

 I was right. After a week of Senegalese accents, the politics class was much easier. I say that with the knowledge that I don't need to present this week- we get Friday off to “celebrate the 4 th of July.” So I don't need to worry ... Read more >
