The Small Stuff Makes A Big Difference

Living in an unfamiliar place can sometimes make you feel like a little kid again. Not in the sentimental “life was so simple back then” type of way but in the “I don’t know what any of these adults are talking about” kind of way.  Nothing is particularly difficult but you just don’t know how…

Catch Me If You Can

Hola, Hello, Hallo and welcome to my blog. These are the respective greetings of Spain, England, and Germany the countries I will be spending this semester in. But first, let me introduce myself.
