Alright, it’s been a while. At first there wasn’t much going on to write about, but then entirely too many things happened in rapid succession and I didn’t have time or energy to write. I still don’t, really, but I feel like I’ll go nuts if I don’t say something about all of this. Classes began a week ago (last Monday) at the university. The whole system is very loosey-goosey, chaotic, disorganized, and overall is the complete opposite of what I would expect a German university system to be like. […]

Korea University

Being a student at Korea University, I feel like there is always something to do, somewhere to go, or things to talk about.

The French Life is a Good One

Just a quick update on the past week or so: So classes here are long. Like really long. And they’re all in french. Which is hard. Like really hard. But on the bright side, so far week two is going better than week one. Better comprehension, better notes. Its all in the little things. The french must have very different views on the university system than we do in the US. Paul-Valéry is no pretty residential campus like I’m used to. Its dirty, a little bit graffitied, and I literally […]
