My apologies for not blogging in, oh about 3 months! Sometimes I get so distracted by all that I have going on that I forget to keep you all updated with things going on here back at Witt.
Since my last blog, I was still in Spain (sniff, sniff), and now am back at the wonderful Wittenberg! I can say I am very happy to be back into the routine of being a regular student and seeing all my friends everyday, instead of just through a little screen on skype. I do miss being abroad about everyday, but rather than making me sad, I am so happy everyday that I made that decision around this time last year to make that journey. Like I always say, and I believe with all my heart, it is such a great opportunity and one that I think any student that can should take advantage of here at Wittenberg. I’m going to throw in another quick plug about study abroad and then I swear I’m done with the subject!
I know I was very gung-ho to study abroad alone and try a program not affiliated with Wittenberg, but I know quite a few students to whom that is not in the least bit appealing. Well good news for those people because Wittenberg offers a bunch of great study abroad programs through the school, with Wittenberg professors and students. Right now I know there are students in Wittenberg, Germany, and there are trips to Lesotho, the Bahamas, Paris and Hong Kong this summer. So if any of that sounds interesting, make sure to check out the study abroad pages ☺
Back to Witt— it’s finally good to feel at home again. I love being able to see friends whenever I walk to class or go to the gym, and actually knowing what my professors are saying in all my classes. It’s finally starting to feel like spring again here and I cannot hide my excitement. Although it’s midterm week and I have more work than I know what to do with, I can’t help thoughts of after spring break and the start of springtime at Witt. As soon as students get back from spring break, there seems to be a shift in students attitudes, that’s more laid-back, time to have fun and enjoy being outside.
Time to stop my rambling and get back to studying. Back home to Minnesota for spring break and a quick few days in Arizona and I get to drive back (12 hours!) to Witt, my first time having my car here!
And as they say in Spain… Hasta luego!
