    Last weekend I had an amazing time and it was completely unexpected which made it that much better. I spent Saturday with the family I work for at their weekend house (La Quinta). It's about an hour away from the city and it's a part of a gated community (right?!). It was SO beautiful and reminded me a lot of the cottages my parents used to take us to when we …

    Today I have been in Buenos Aires for two weeks and I wanted to start my journal before I let too much time pass without writing :) The first week:  The first week here was CRAZY. And that's a complete understatement. I landed in the morning, got into the city in the early afternoon and crashed hard for a few hours before I had my first meeting. Yes, I had my first …

    Now that I have been home for a month, I have been reflecting on my study abroad experience. Since it's winter here and summer in Australia, I am definitely missing the weather. There's already been a few snow storms here. When I got back, I felt like I always had something to say about Australia. I'm sure people got somewhat sick of me adding things to almost every conversation, but I …

       A typical week here is nothing like that of a regular school week back home. Monday starts off early with a 9 am class which is on site. For an art class this is very typical and can consist of meeting at a piazza one week and the pantheon the next. Although it's difficult to wake up and find public transportation so early, the class is always eye opening …

                My greatest adventure would have to be skydiving. My friend Nikki and I had been planning on it for weeks, and when the day finally came, we had mixed reactions. I was impatient about wanting to be on the plane already, and she was extremely nervous. We finally got our gear on, met our instructors who would be on our backs, and got on the plane. It was a …

    At Bond University, I live in a building that people call “The A.C.” It’s formally known as the Accommodation Center. I love living in this building because it’s in the center of campus and is really safe.             Across from my dorm is a café called Juicy Bits, and they have the most delicious pancakes. They don’t take meal plans, just cash or credit. However, it’s so good; I love to …

    Looking back on my trip, I had the best time of my life.  After arriving in Australia, my pre departure jitters completely disappeared. I made friends, got used to my environment and the way Australia worked. I feel like part of the reason my jitters disapeared was because in the first few weeks, I was excited and overwhelemd with being in Australia. By the time it fully hit me that I …

    Today marks one week since I've been home and yet it still feels weird to say that. I'm home. Over the past week I've had the time to adjust  to being back, but it'll probably take me a lot more time to adjust to the idea that I'm not going back to Rome.. not for a long while anyway. That makes sense I suppose. After all, it's a strange thing …

    My greatest adventure was defintely going to Moreton Island. The snorkeling around the ship wrecks brought me the island was filled with a breath taking beauty and the adventurous yet relaxed feeling was hard to escape. While there, we snorkled around ship wrecks, sand boarded and hiked. The sandboarding was like nothing I had ever done before. We FLEW down a sand hill on a small wooden board. The first …

    Well, today I'm home.. but it's not the time to talk about that. Now's the time to put up the last entry I wrote while I was still in Rome. I've had so many adventures while in Europe. It's unbelievable that a person can make so many great memories in such a short amount of time.. looking back on these last few months will be like a neverending greatest hits reel. …
