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 >

Rabat for the Last Time

MOROCCO | Saturday, 26 Jul 2014 | Views [301]

 When we walked out of the train station and into Rabat, I commented that it felt much cooler. It always felt cooler in Rabat than it did wherever else we visited.  “That's because it's hooome,” Natasha said. I breathed in the ... Read more >

Another Time, Another Town, Another Everything

MOROCCO | Tuesday, 22 Jul 2014 | Views [384]

The Moroccan consensus on Rabat, at least among people of our age, tends to be that it is a boring city. From the ftour on the beach: Fati (who has lived her entire life in Rabat): “What do you think of Rabat?” Us: “It's nice.... Read more >

Poli Sci Paper and Procrastination

MOROCCO | Monday, 21 Jul 2014 | Views [1995]

 On the syllabus for poli sci, there was a 8-10 page paper that counted for 20% of our grade. The good news is that by the time the teacher got around to describing it, the paper had dropped down from 8-10 pages to only 5. The bad news is that by ... Read more >

Midterms and Commercials

MOROCCO | Sunday, 6 Jul 2014 | Views [365]

 At the beginning of lit class, our professor handed out the sheet that had the questions for our midterm. There were four of them, each of which should be answered in “a small paragraph,” and each of them essentially asked “do ... Read more >

Chocolate for Dinner

MOROCCO | Saturday, 5 Jul 2014 | Views [258]

 On Wednesday, we handed in our papers for the Dakar trip. They were due to our two non-Arabic teachers. Our lit professor was delighted when Megan turned hers in and shocked when the rest of us also handed in our papers. Last year, the students ... Read more >

Something Next to Normal Would be OK

MOROCCO | Thursday, 3 Jul 2014 | Views [457]

 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 >

We'll Prove it with Reference to our Last Seminar

MOROCCO | Monday, 23 Jun 2014 | Views [298]

My host mother seems determined to make sure I learn “hamka,” the Darija word for “crazy.” She uses it nearly as much as she uses “Le bas?” and she asks me that every time I see her. It would be a fair trade, since ... Read more >

Empty Karaoke

MOROCCO | Saturday, 21 Jun 2014 | Views [1223]

On Wednesday, we didn't have politics class, going instead to the Center of African Studies. We got a short tour of the building, then sat down in a conference room. The building wasn't that interesting. There were pictures of Mohammed V right ... Read more >

Can't Get Lost if I Don't Know Where to Go

MOROCCO | Monday, 16 Jun 2014 | Views [271]

I'd figured that my host father had simply been one day off in terms of when he needed to pick us up. But the next day, he was waiting for Erika and I. He motioned for us to go ahead, and followed us at some distance, watching.   At times ... Read more >

Just Another Day

MOROCCO | Friday, 13 Jun 2014 | Views [292]

We arrived at the center on Wednesday a little nervous about what to expect. Everyone who was taking the politics class was nervous about not having quite finished the reading, or maybe finished but not read it as thoroughly and with as much focus ... Read more >

School then Work and then Life

MOROCCO | Thursday, 12 Jun 2014 | Views [234]

During breakfast Monday morning, someone made the comment that she was excited for classes to start. By the end of the day, I certainly agreed. My host family and Rabat were both so unfamiliar, I wanted something that I could understand again. And ... Read more >

Orinetation

MOROCCO | Thursday, 12 Jun 2014 | Views [321]

Not since Rome have I been so sure that I was going to get run over. In Rome it was the fault of the drivers. Here, it's because the pedestrians are insane. I'd noticed that a little bit with my walk with Nathan and Erika Sunday, and then a bit more ... Read more >
