“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.
5 cities, 4 countries, 3 gelatos, 2 macarons, and 1 fried pizza. And too many espressos to count.
That’s me trying to recall all we ate the past 9 days so I can remember to review it all on Yelp.
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.

I never realized how north Helsinki was until I zoomed out on a map. Then I started to understand why the Finnish people love burning hot saunas.
Actually, it was more like 46.
