My Final Quarter at Frankfurt School

Boy has this semester gone by fast! I feel like it was just yesterday that I started this post only to put it down for a moment and realize that nothing I had written is relevant anymore. I mean,¬†my semester ends next week! How the heck did that happen? It seems like just yesterday I…

Small-Town USA to City Life in Germany; How it Happened

I’ve gotten a lot of questions like, “why Germany?” or “how’d you get here?” during my time studying in Frankfurt. It’s a pretty straightforward story that, on the surface,  perhaps lacks some magical feeling of destiny or magic but I think that once people get to know me and where I’m from, they start to…

Twitch-be-Gone (I went to the Doctor)

Dead Week = Studying + Exams

Well this post is going to be short and maybe a bit boring. Last week was a break for students to concentrate on studying for the upcoming finals week.
