  • A Reverse Cultural Adjustment

    It is a weird concept to be home, but feel an aching for a foreign place. I think about Prague everyday, and all the wonderful experiences I had there. In the short time I spent there, I feel that I matured a lot. I was forced to be independent, and adjust to an entirely new…

  • Wishing I was still in Prague

    I arrived home in the US yesterday evening at 6pm. However, I left Prague on saturday July 19th, and traveled to Budapest, Hungary for a few days. I really really miss Prague. Last night showing my family pictures from my abroad experience, all I could think is I really want to go back. Only after…

  • The end is near

    My study abroad in Prague experience is ending in two days, and I am quite upset by it. It is funny to think back to crying my eyes out for the first four days, asking myself how I would ever make it through the month, and now I do not want to leave. I had…

  • Two Weeks Until Prague!

    Today officially marks two weeks until I leave for Prague, Czech Republic. It is finally starting to sink in, that this trip is actually happening. I believe my transition in thinking is fueled by the research I have been doing as of late, to make the most of my Prague experience. My dad purchased a…

  • Getting Ready for Prague

    A couple of weeks ago, I was knee-deep in finals, staying up well past four am night after night, hoping to finish off the end of my sophomore year successfully. The fact that I would be boarding a plane to Prague, Czech Republic in a less than month, was the furthest thing from my mind.…
