College Hacks: Textbooks

Textbooks can be really expensive. But every new semester doesn’t have to break the bank. Here’s a video with some college hacks to save you money.

Prague Updates: Semester Bucket List

So while I was going to my different classes today, my friends and I got on the topic of trying new things. What with being in a new country, a new city, a new culture, and among new people, it seems natural to try as many new things as possible before we inevitably have to […]

Prague Updates: Internship Interviews

So class has started today. It was a nice weekend but, of course, they never last as long as you want them to and before I knew it I was back in class getting lectured at again. I finished before 1 though so I was able to come back and just relax, get some food […]

Prague Updates: Day Trip to the Terezin

So this weekend has been a relaxing one. After the crazy time we had in Berlin – which was insanely fun but also extremely busy – it was nice to stay in Prague for a couple of days and really absorb my city. Getting back here, I had the strange feeling that I wasn’t giving […]

Prague Updates: Roommates

So I just realized that I haven’t really talked about my living situation while I’m studying abroad and it occurred to me – super late in the game, as per the usual – that other students might be interested in this. So here’s the situation: I’m living in an apartment with four other kids my […]

As I mentioned earlier, we’ve already formed into groups but no one expected teachers […]

Prague Update: Don’t Knock it Till You Try It

I’ve done it. I’ve actually done it. I survived Intensive Czech. Today was the last day of our three hour Czech language classes and – ¬†even though I really appreciated the class and actually have become more interested in learning functional Czech, or what I like to call “Taxi Czech” – I’m also relieved that […]

Prague Updates: Studying Done Right

So I know it’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally got a few of my pictures on to my laptop so here they are, ready and waiting for you to gaze upon them. Here’s a couple pictures of my room. I share it with my roommate from American University. I know it doesn’t […]

Studying Abroad: A Guide to Homesickness

So I’ve been in Prague for a total of four days now but it feels a lot longer. I’ve explored the city a little bit on some unofficial tours and gotten to know some of the other people in my program so I’m definitely starting to feel a little more like I belong here. That’s […]

The Procrastinator’s Guide to Studying Abroad

So it’s been a while since I last posted anything on this blog – sorry about that. Last semester was a mess of different obligations; I took too many classes, signed up for too many work study hours, joined too many clubs, and by the time winter break rolled around I was so worn out […]
