Worst. Blogger. Ever.

No but really. I think I deserve an award. Like a Razzie, but for wannabe bloggers. See, the problem with waiting almost 3 whole months to write a post is that so. much. shit. has happened that I literally don’t even know where to start. Should I attempt to go in chronological order? Or in my typical stream of consciousness… Read more →

One More Week!

   So in exactly a week I’ll be up in the air somewhere between here and the Netherlands. I could not be more excited! I do have a layover, which is a bit of a bummer, but still, I’ll be almost home. I keep telling Marcel that it doesn’t feel real. And it really doesn’t. It feels completely surreal knowing… Read more →

Almost Home

I officially have my plane ticket! I leave in about three weeks then I FINALLY get to be with Marcel again.  These last 3 months have been awesome and brutal at the same time. Awesome because I don’t think I’ve ever spent more time with friends. To the point where I think one particular hooker is sick of me. But… Read more →

Return of the Blogger..ogger..ogger

That was supposed to be like a cool echo by the way. Don’t think it came out too well though. Hmm. Anyway, updates! I finally started gathering my documents for the legalization process yesterday and realized I was missing one very important one. Yes I know. I should have done this a month ago. But I procrastinate. It’s the student… Read more →

Living in a Fairy Tale

So this post isn’t for any of you Europeans reading. It’s for my American friends. I saw a castle today. A true blue castle. With a moat and everything!   Now all you European readers are probably rolling your eyes. But you do realize that we don’t have castles anywhere in any of the Americas. Except for Sleeping Beauty’s castle… Read more →

First Impressions of Belgium

On our way to Bruges we had a stopover at Liège, where we had to get off and switch trains. It was here that I got my first taste of Belgium. Marcel made an assessment of the country that they were 50 years behind. That’s not true really. They’re only about 8 years behind. At the station I saw a… Read more →

Two Week Checkup

It’s been two weeks since I left the United States for the Netherlands, so I thought I’d give you guys a recap. I sprained my foot and reawakened an old rock climbing injury. I got an infection on my wisdom tooth from it coming out and breaking the skin of my gums. (Gross. I know. Sorry.) I ate something that… Read more →

Hola from Utrecht!

   Hello, hallo, hola from Utrecht! Today is the beginning of my third day here and I’m absolutely in love. The weather is gorgeous (yes I’m talking about the gloom and rain), and the company is even better. I’ve already tried a couple of typical little Dutch snacks, that I can’t pronounce or remember, but my mom and sister made… Read more →

Up in the Air

   6:15pm PST So I had every intention of writing a post from the airport terminal. Kind of like a “see ya suckers!” sort of thing. Naturally I nearly missed my flight. It wasn’t my fault this time though! Honest. The airline was having system problems and took For. E. Ver. Ask my mom, she would never lie for me.… Read more →
