I’ve Come Full Circle…

I've come full circle, I can die now.  You've been to Paris before?  No. You know full circle, like full circle in my dreams. Coming to Spain, I didn't know anyone, I didn't even know my program mates except one. I was so excited to be going to Europe for the first time, that I [...]

Wooohoooo…

Ahora es oficialmente Agosto! Que emoción, venga vamos!  I can official count down the 21 days until I embark on my adventure in Spain. Woohooo!   I'm super stoked and excited to see what this year brings me. I have already started making contact with folks who are moving to Spain or already live in [...]

I had just left 24 hours of rain/snow and tons of Nutella Crepes back in Paris. This was it. My last [...]

No Te Preocupes, Siéntate…

Roommate gone. Spanish terrible. Lonely pea. Seven months later, I can really say that I'm glad things happened the way they did. Had my roommate never left, I don't think I would have ever put the idea of coming back to Madrid in my head, or at least not yet. I would have never gotten [...]
