                In comparison to the Northern excursion, the following week was fairly laid back. Besides a good bit of class work to knock out throughout the week, that Thursday held a particular reason for excitement: Southwest Spin University of Limerick Race Day. As my professor made fun of us, “it was a day to ditch class and go watch horses run around in …

    I have been reading a book written by Eric Metaxas about Bonhoeffer; a man who assisted in plotting an assisination of Hitler. While reading, "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Prophet, Martyr, Spy" I ran across a passage Bonhoeffer had written about his experience in visiting American University and the hostels (dorms) the students lived in. Living together day by day produces a strong spirit of comradeship, of a mutual readiness to help. The thousandfold …

    The last few days have been absolutely beautiful. Bright blue skies and warm weather. Makes me think of home because all of my friends are at the beach for a music festival. Friday we had a high tea at work. We all brought a different dish and drank tea. i made a vegan mini pumpkin cake becuase most of the people I work with are either vegan or vegetarian. Then yesterday Hilke …

                Prior to arriving in this splendid county I will admit the level of ignorance I had about Ireland and its history. And again, I will admit to this lack of knowledge that I recently gained its newer history, and with that newly possessed information, a new realm of respect and appreciation for this tiny county and the loveliness of its people.             …

    I am so excited to me a part of this program and get the opporunity to study abroad and travel while I am in Europe. I hope to experience while I am abroad the different cultures and lifestyles, food, religion and traditions. I can't wait to meet my host family and learn from them as I live with them throughout my time abroad. I think Spain will be an amazing …

    A post about the “greatest” things of London according to me, here we go. Greatest adventure: On a large scale I would say my greatest adventure was my trip to Ireland with my girlfriends Callie, Cami, and Rocío. It was such a great time. We were only there for 3 days, but we had so much fun. We spent a day in Dublin enjoying the city, spent a …

    I have begun to talk to Katinka about what may interest me as far as ideas for my research project for school. This is only my fourth day, so I realize that I have plenty of time to decide. I do, however, have an interest in the difference between the public and the farmers' views on live animal exportation. The WSPA are not radicals seeking to stop people from eating meat. …

    I thought that I would not only remember, but be dying to write, every other day, if not every day. Somehow this has not happened. I have gotten so caught up in each day and all that is going on every day that by the time I drag myself up the Empire Hotel's stairs at night, I have less than ten minutes before I am out. I have seen so many things in …

    Four days until I leave for Ireland. I can’t believe it’s really here. I have been planning this trip, daydreaming about it, freaking out about it, for months. And now I am actually going. I am nervous. My bag is nearly packed, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve packed and re-packed it. I constantly daydream about what it’s going to be like stepping off that plane in the …
