Thursday: We woke up at 4:30 and by 5am were on a bus to the airport for our last major group trip. The sky was dark, the stars remained hidden above smog, and the full moon shone brightly over the horizon. After arriving at the airport, making it through security, waiting for Cinnabon to open, […]

When you have a day off of school, you go somewhere. No exceptions. And when you have half of a day between two things, you use it. No exceptions. So one Friday we went to Valparaiso to explore and take pictures, returning to the apartments by 8pm. Then at 10pm, Lindsay and I went on […]

It doesn’t feel real. And as time goes on, will it feel less real or more real? I just flew alone to Ireland to spend 9 weeks in a little town, doing whatever work they wanted me to. I’m in Europe… That just doesn’t seem true. It’s hard to wrap up this past 9 weeks […]
