We’re halfway there… [Week 12]

This weekend marks the halfway point in my study abroad program. Isn’t that crazy? Starting tomorrow, I’ll be closer to leaving Geneva than arriving here. The days are getting longer as we creep closer to summer (soon the Sun will be up until 9pm! I can’t wait!) and the temperature is more consistently in the 60s. I’m itching to break out my sundresses…. With three months gone and three months to go, I feel I’ve done so much, but there’s still so much I have yet to do. The first half of this program progressed lazily, steadily, but now I’m afraid I won’t be able to accomplish everything I’d like to with the time remaining. I suppose it’s a nice problem to have.

Mid-Week Update: Week 10.5

Dan and I are about to fly off to enjoy a weekend stargazing on Tenerife in the Canary Islands! With all our planning for that trip, as well as a problem set due for physics yesterday, I still haven't been able to finish my post about the wine-tasting excursion and football game from Saturday. But I promise, it's coming soon! I certainly plan on blogging about our trip to Tenerife, but for now, here is a short post to update you on the goings-on of my week so far.

A Reflection + brief update (Weeks 9-10)

We have now been in Geneva for two months and 10 days. I acknowledge that I haven’t been the best with posting my weekly updates recently, and for that I apologize. I think a large part of the reason for that is that the excitement of the first couple months has largely passed and I’m starting to fall into a rhythm. I don’t do many new or exciting things during the week, so my weekly updates from now on will be shorter or nonexistent. Most of my travel or excursions occur on the weekends and I will continue to report on those as they happen. To make up for last week’s absence, I’m going to combine my “updates” from the past two weeks in today’s post. I’ve also decided that I’m in the mood for an introspective reflection on my time in Geneva so far.
