Hello all! Sorry for the dead space which has been this blog recently. End-of-year celebrations, finals, and prepping to leave home for six weeks can keep a girl pretty busy! As a result, the pre-trip posts I had planned to write didn’t end up happening, and I don’t foresee them coming anytime soon. Mostly because … More Hello from #thesfest16!
“Senioritis: noun. A crippling disease that strikes high school seniors. Symptoms include: laziness and an excessive wearing of track pants, old athletic shirts, sweatpants, athletic shorts, and sweatshirts.

Ah it’s that time of year again. Oregon can’t decide what season it is, classes are slowly disintegrating into seas of chaos, prom anxieties dominate hallway conversation, and students around the country are dreaming about the magical summer that’s only just out-of-reach. With 29 days of school remaining and five weeks left in the school … More Coming Soon: Summer 2016
Hey, remember when I used to do this blog thing? No? Well that makes sense because it has been FOREVER since I’ve updated you all on my international experiences! And, believe it or not, there have been quite a few over the past few months. I’ve interacted with the awesome exchange students who are at … More Hey Look, I’m Back (Hopefully)
Hi all! So, I have some not-so-great news to share. Because my area high school is at capacity for exchange students, we won’t be able to be a Welcome Family this year. We were really looking forward to this opportunity, but it was out of our hands! I’m very much looking forward to being involved … More Sometimes You Speak Too Soon…
Hello lovelies! I have missed writing for you all so terribly. I still miss India a lot, and am so grateful to have social media to connect me with friends and family on the other side of the world, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about. Today, I am thrilled to announce that … More A Brand-New Chapter!
Hello everyone! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I miss writing over 1,000 words everyday. Hopefully at least one of you kinda misses reading them. Maybe not, but that’s okay. I had mentioned wanting to do a “what it’s like to come home” post and since I’ve been dying to write something, … More Bitten By The Travel Bug
**I wrote this on the plane from Delhi to Newark. I’ve since flown another six hours to San Francisco where I saw my dad (he’s in SF for work and happened to fly in around the same time) before getting on a plane to Eugene. My mom picked me up at the airport and I … More This Isn’t Goodbye
Today’s the day. I leave India in less than 10 hours. Honestly, it hasn’t even sunk in yet. This. Is. Crazy. My time in India has been wonderful, insane, hilarious, confusing, exciting, and fascinating. From the amazing people I’ve met and grown to love to the new foods and experiences, I wouldn’t change a thing. … More This Is It…Again
My last day in Ahmedabad is over. I say Ahmedabad, not India, because we’re spending the day in New Delhi tomorrow. But I don’t care about that. The best and most important part of my trip is ending and I don’t know how to handle it. Today was full of reflection and, sadly, goodbyes. But … More There Are No Words
