Flats, University Courses and Primaries: 2016 Edition

Somehow, it’s just been 18 days since the New Year. Already, there have been so many so many changes and differences that fundamentally distinguish it from 2015. This is first year I have begun my full New Year in a foreign country, and it’s been such an incredible experience to implement change abroad. Attending my local…

Prague in Winter

Over the weekend, I recently visited Prague – all of the photos made me super excited to take with the newest app of awesomeness (VSCO Cam). It was winter… and January, so I admit it was slightly cold – but entirely worth it!

Welcoming 2016

Maybe the best way to start off the New Year is to procrastinate. At least, that’s what I tell myself as I write the post that was intended for January 1… four days late. There are any number of solid excuses for this: I’ve been busy, I’ve been traveling, blah blah blah. But ultimately, it…

It’s Almost Christmas!

In case you weren’t already aware, it’s almost Christmas! I could spend paragraphs upon paragraphs raving about how amazing snow is, and how cold weather is incredible, also how family and this season are my favorite things… but I won’t (given that I’m sure you’ve heard it from me, or like me already). But just…

Back To My Roots

What does going back to your roots mean? I would define it as doing something that embodies a former version of your present self. What I mean by going back to my roots is multidimensional this week. This whole last year has been a whirlwind of new experiences and being forced way out of my…

The Family Comes to Deutschland

As is evident by the title, some of my family came to Berlin this past week to visit for Thanksgiving and in doing so – made me late in posting my usual Sunday weekly overview (Apologies!). Crazily, the six of us did more sightseeing in Berlin than I’ve done in the last two months… quite…

Paris

I have waited a bit before posting any sort of reaction to the attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015. This is partially for selfish reasons; I did not want to sound overtly angered and I wanted to have all the facts in front of me before this turned into an all-out rant. This was…

Laksa, Salaman Rushdie and Berlin

I wouldn’t use the word momentous to describe this week necessarily, but I almost want to throw it out there, because this week was one of the better ones since arriving in Germany. Living abroad, while having its incredible perks, I have found can be incredibly isolating and lonely. This isn’t to say I don’t go…

It is cold in Berlin.

It is, as I said above, cold (really cold) in Berlin. Somehow, it has already hit 35/45 Fahrenheit temperatures, and it’s barely November! I can hardly believe it and I am in no way prepared for the wintertime! (i.e. did not bring a warm enough jacket) Otherwise, most of my week has been filled with…

The Literary Life: A Weekly Overview

Here we are, yet again, at the weekly overview post. And wow – this week has probably been the most literary one I’ve had in years (or months). For those of you who don’t know already, I started Nanowrimo 5 days into the month of November. What is Nanowrimo? It’s National Novel Writing Month! Basically the challenge is to…

The Streets of London

Like I said in my previous post, here’s a collection of my “street” photos in London. I absolutely love taking candid photos of street corners and buildings around cities, and London was (of course) no exception. If you’d like actual size copies of any photos – please contact me! Otherwise- scroll and enjoy.
