Letters From Exchange: Thoughts on the Flight Home

Man, do I have to pee.  That's it, that's the end of my year (10 months, whatever) of exchange, of adventure. I flew to Oslo 10 months ago and had one of the toughest days of my life, sleep-deprived and hungry, pushing my body weight in luggage around a foreign country on one of the … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: Thoughts on the Flight Home

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Traveling A LOT

I meant to blog more while traveling all month, so let me just apologize for that. I always think it'll be easy to keep up with things, but then I actually go and travel and even if I have consistent wifi, I just get so tired that it's hard to focus. I'm struggling just with … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Traveling A LOT

Letters From Exchange: The Beginning of the End

This is it, this is the moment it all starts. Okay, so, "it" has been going on forever because "it" essentially is life, but this moment feels particularly...momentous.

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Done With Classes

Three years can sure go by faster than you'd expect. I suppose it hasn't helped that I've been moving around … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Done With Classes

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Struggling (Again)

Oh, I know, I'm always struggling. Honestly, what else is new? I guess I just thought that I was doing better after my trip to Paris, and I am comparatively, but I was only really doing well for a couple of weeks. Now it's been a month today that I've been back and the last two … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Struggling (Again)

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I Only Have Two Months Left

There are only two months left to my exchange, and I have to say, I'm rather conflicted about it. On the one hand, I'm very excited to leave. That sounds bad, but I won't lie about it. I've chronicled to a silly extent how much the Norwegian winter affected me, and I am excited for … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I Only Have Two Months Left
