“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”
The last 7 days.
December. Charles Dickens would say: it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I would say: it was the season of julehygge, it was season of finals.
Who loves a good rhyme, family time, and stroopwafels?! This gal.
I think by now I have successfully hyped Wednesday up because its onsdagssnegle day, but it is also an awesome day because it is field study day at DIS! Some Wednesdays you will have a field study, or two field studies. These experiences take your learning out of the classroom into a setting where you can tangibly see your lessons in action.
Honestly I’m ready to send my resume to a travel agency now.
Within the last week, I’ve had two groups of friends come visit Copenhagen! My best friend from middle school, Bridget, and 4 of her university friends came the first weekend. Then, my friends from Villanova, Ryan (also high school!!!), Ian, Becca, and Taylor, came on Tuesday because they were on fall break. We had planned their trip to Europe back in July and I have been waiting for these three days since then. Here’s some things I did with mine venner, my friends.
While traveling to a new country each weekend seems quite glamorous on the gram, it’s important to not forget about your copen-home! The past two weekends I’ve spent in Copenhagen, checking things off of my bucket-list and exploring new places I randomly stumbled upon. Make the most of the weekends you have in your new home!
The oldest town in Denmark. Ominous statues by the ocean. A magical bacterial infection test. The tree of life. What do these things have in common? CORE COURSE WEEK.
Sometimes I forget I’m living in the city until I leave for a bit. Standing on rocks and smelling salty water reminded me of Rhode Island. Except this time I was looking at Sweden, not Block Island.
I bought these dark chocolate coated cookies at the store because they were the cheapest option and now I’m obsessed with them. Proof taking a leap of faith can have beautiful results. Buying cookies means…I went to the grocery store again! AND our shower is now fully functioning to a perfect warm temperature. Things are going well.
