Home and the Holidays

Almost two months after my return home for the holidays, I look back on that week as a dream of sorts – it felt oh-so-normal to be back, but now it’s as though I never was. It was as though I had never been gone as soon as the plane touched down, and thus began […]

ABCs of: Denim, Easter, Food

The day of near denim overdose. (See how I continued the “ABCs” with the words in my title?)There is little to update anyone on during this frustratingly lengthy exam break (12 days between my first exam and my last two exams on the same day), but I thought it would be a nice time to […]
