About a year ago when I found out my school placement, one of the first things I did, as I’m sure every ETA did, was go to Uncle Google to find any information on the school I would be spending the next 10 months of my life. Luckily, my school had a website. Not only … More Class trip to Wangerooge
When I was a junior at Ohio State, I took a German class called Protest, Rebellion, and Revolution. As the title suggests, we learned about past, recent, and current resistance movements in Germany when das Volk banded together, expressed their opinions, and did something about it. If there is one thing I took away from … More Es lebe den Widerstand!
Happy 2015, friends and readers of this blog! I know I’m about 38 days late, but I just thought I’d check in here and write a quick overview of what I’ve been up to since my last post. I did actually begin to write a long, in-depth post about the Christmas markets, Budapest, and New … More Short, sweet update 😀
You’d think after neglecting this blog week after week, I would learn from my “mistakes” and take some initiative to post more regularly, but nope. Where’s the fun, or dare I say, spontaneity, in that? It makes the most sense to post, in this case, something about my autumn break travels only 2 days before … More Herbstferien in Poland (better late than never!)
Remember my last post (probably not as it was 6 weeks ago) when I said that I wouldn’t write long posts that span the course of weeks and that “I can 99.99% guarantee that this post [previous post on this blog] will by far be my longest”? You actually remember? Did you take bets on … More German Youth and a Home Away from Home, Sachsen
Well, if the title did not give it away, I am in Germany! It’s been a long time in the making, but I can finally say my year as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant is underway. Also, I can 99.99% guarantee that this post will by far be my longest. It’s been an exciting week … More 26. August 2014 – 7. September 2014: Leaving the States, Settling in, Orientation, and the First Day of School
A few posts ago, I declared that I needed to find a travel mantra. A group of words strung together that describe my outlook on new experiences and how to make the most of my time traveling. I told myself that thinking of this mantra would take time; it was not something to be created … More A Mantra and a Place to Live
For the past month now, I have been slowly gathering my thoughts to write my first “official” Fulbright-related post of this blog, but something more important recently occurred that is causing that blog post to be postponed til further notice: the 2014 FIFA World Cup. On Sunday the 13th of July 2014, Germany raised their … More ’54, ’74, ’90, 2014!
Just a little post to note that the purpose, for the time being, of this blog has slightly shifted. Before, my intent of this blog was to write about anything that came my way; if anything in the media caught my attention and I wanted to explain my thoughts about it, this was (supposedly) my … More Important (but not really) change!
Well, it’s been a few months since my last post, rendering my original intent of posting bi-weekly/month “ramblings” completely void. But, that’s okay! I may not have a lot to show on this blog, but my own personal life has been going swimmingly, and my prospects for the future are promising and beyond exciting! Since … More Let’s try this one more time…
