Exploring the City

Monday, December 2, 2013

 

For a city with the size and diversity of Istanbul, one semester is really not long enough. Even if I spent all my time exploring the different alleys and hidden streets of the city, it would take me years, and I do mean many years, to be able to feel like I had adequately explored this place.

A tourist again

Monday, December 2, 2013

            Such a fantastic week in Barca, my parents came into town on Wednesday, and we were busy from the time they arrived to the time they left for the airport. I was a tour guide to the best parts of the city, visiting many of Barcelona's many wonderful destinations. I felt like a tourist again, but sort of re-discovered the city again checking out some unfamiliar sports, and bringing my parents to all worth checking out, like some of the great restaurants in the city.

First Ski Day of the Season

Sunday, December 1, 2013

Hi all!

I hope everyone had a happy and enjoyable Thanksgiving!

As of today, there are about two and a half weeks of school left, including finals. For most people, that means study, study, study…and then study some more. While studying will most definitely consume my next couple of weeks, I took this past weekend easy and headed up to the mountains to do a little bit of skiing.

Let the Countdown Begin!!

Sunday, December 1, 2013

Happy Sunday! My Thanksgiving break was amazing! Even though I had a little bit of work to do, I had plenty of time to relax and prepare for going back to school. There isn’t only about 2 and a half weeks left of school until winter break. I consider this time to be the most stressful for a couple different reasons. The first reason is that finals are rapidly approaching… and this can be scary. I have never been the best test taker… so I start studying for finals very early.

A Wonderful Way to End the Week...

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is having a fun and safe break so far!  I’ve been enjoying mine a lot so far and it felt like I started Thanksgiving break early this year!

"Home is whenever I'm with you."

Monday, November 25, 2013

As the plan is getting ready to land in Barcelona, "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros comes on over the loud speakers, and it couldn't be more fitting. I've only been in Barcelona around three months, but this feels like home, and the thought of leaving soon is making me feel a little home sick.

The Internship

Sunday, November 24, 2013

This semester, I decided to get an internship! When I made my schedule last year, I noticed that I only had one class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I thought that I could either waste my time by starting a new series on Netflix or do something productive with my time.  I got an email from my sorority over Summer break from a former member who was working at a company in Louisville who was looking for some interns. I decided that this would be a good way to use my time. I went and interviewed and got the internship when I got back to Colorado for the school year.

Home Sweet Home!

Sunday, November 24, 2013

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and are as excited as I am for the upcoming holiday! Traveling home ended up being a little more crazy then I was initially planning. I woke up on Thursday morning (the morning I was going to fly home), to freezing temperatures and snow! I always check online to make sure my flight is still scheduled. Unfortunately… it was delayed! I started out only being delayed about 25 minutes… and then slowly the delay time increased. By the end, it was delayed a total of about 2.5 hours.
