Okonomiyaki and Yarn

JAPAN | Saturday, 13 Feb 2016 | Views [296]

Saturday morning and afternoon were calm and uneventful, at least for me. We'd received word (via email, so it is used for something) that Return of Kings was planning a large gathering in Umeda, so we should avoid it. If you don't have enough Facebook ... Read more >

Let's Take a Train to Anywhere

JAPAN | Saturday, 23 Jan 2016 | Views [409]

Wednesday the first few hours were dedicated to train vocabulary. How to buy train tickets, how to buy shinkansen tickets, commuter passes, etc. After a little over an hour in the classroom, we headed out to one of the nearby train stations to get tickets ... Read more >

I'm Getting Better at This!

FRANCE | Wednesday, 11 Nov 2015 | Views [244]

In Integration, we learned a few more theorems about integrals and sequences of functions (such as Borel-Canelli Lemma and Fatou’s lemma) and defined negligible sets (having a measure of zero) and properties that are true almost everywhere (true ... Read more >

Is it the middle of the semester already? Because that would explain the midterms.

FRANCE | Wednesday, 4 Nov 2015 | Views [246]

Intégration was dedicated to proving the Monotone Convergence Theorem. The previous week, he’d given us a statement of the theorem, but said we didn’t have the time to prove it just then. But, with the entirety of a two hour class ... Read more >

Tests and Reviews

FRANCE | Tuesday, 20 Oct 2015 | Views [243]

In Integration, we started looking at integrals. On the first day of class, the CM professor had explained that the point of the class was not to teach us to integrate better. Which is good, because if that had been the point, spending five weeks without ... Read more >

I'm still taking classes.

FRANCE | Saturday, 10 Oct 2015 | Views [291]

If anyone has been quietly thinking to themselves “why is she always talking about classes? I didn’t know she actually intended to study abroad,” worry no longer. As of this week, description of what’s going on in my classes ... Read more >

Topology and languages part two: the easy version of Wednesday

FRANCE | Sunday, 20 Sep 2015 | Views [302]

Thursday required me getting up in time to be at a 10:45 class. It is one of only two morning classes I have this semester. Life is rough. The class in question was topology. I think it won the dubious title of most comprehensible topology class ... Read more >

The end of the week (not to be confused with the weekend)

FRANCE | Tuesday, 8 Sep 2015 | Views [161]

After finishing the test, I did not want to sit down. So I just started walking, with the vague plan of going until I got tired, and then maybe catching a metro back from wherever I ended up. I got hungry first, and stopped for lunch at a crepe stand ... Read more >

Nothing like a three-hour French test to get your day off to a good start

FRANCE | Monday, 7 Sep 2015 | Views [156]

One of the classes I’d registered for was French, so that needed to begin with a placement test. We were told to show up at precisely 9:00, and expect it to take about 3 hours. Because I can never get enough of French placement tests (why else ... Read more >

French 3010 comes back to haunt me

FRANCE | Sunday, 6 Sep 2015 | Views [201]

There weren’t any morning activities scheduled on Thursday, so I slept in, walked around Paris for a while, and finally worked my way back to the university around two. This had given them enough time to respond to my e-mail, first to forward ... Read more >

Turns out Carthage students particiapting in Brown study abroads aren't typical Brown students

FRANCE | Wednesday, 26 Aug 2015 | Views [213]

There are several cities where, the night before I leave, I stare out a window and make a promise to myself and to the city that I'll be back. Paris is not one of those cities. Rather, it's one of the cities that it seems like I keep returning to. It's ... Read more >
