Irish Aid Funding

Advice from a “Seasoned” Traveler

Hello again! After having experience traveling both to and within Australia, I figured I would share some advice I learned about packing for study abroad. Here is a list I created in no particular order but is split up into two categories. This list is ideal for a 6-week program such as the one I…

Work Coming to a Close

With only one week left, I’ve just been experiencing a strange phenomenon at work. After 8 weeks of constant things to do at work, my task that was given to me at the very beginning of summer is finally slowing down. At the beginning of the summer I first learned how to do inland freight…

It was actually harder…
