Looking to Join the Real World; My Job Hunt so Far

I’m assuming most of you have caught onto the fact that this is the last semester of my Master’s degree. Just last week I sat my final lecture and all that remains is a group project, two finals, and my Master Thesis. As I do not have the luxury of a full bank account to…

Field Trip to Switzerland

Now that the semester is drawing to a close, my professors have made a switch from lecturing straight out of the book, to more hands-on, real world examples. One course took this methodology to an extreme with my first college “field trip” since my Geology of the Pacific Northwest class in community college. Mind you,…

Sunrise… a New Beginning – A Weekly Photo Challenge

Sunrise is very symbolic; often meaning a new beginning, a fresh start. It’s very fitting for where I am at in my life at the moment, applying to jobs that will be the first steps in my career. At this moment, the sun has not yet risen over the horizon, not quite. Instead, it is…

A Mid-Semester Update

As I get ready to head off to Berlin for spring break, I thought now would be a good time to update you all on how my semester at Bocconi is going. Overall, things are going really well and I’m really enjoying Milan. If you just wanted the quick and dirty answer then there you…

“Story” – A Weekly Photo Challenge

Conveying a story in photo is very difficult especially for those like me who tend to take photos of the surrounding city as opposed to myself (selfies don’t count here haha). But after scrolling back a few months I remembered this photo my friend took of me and thought how well it conveyed a sense…

My Last Day of Class at Frankfurt School!

My how time flies. Literally just yesterday I was updating you all on how my last quarter went and here I am posting a vlog of my very last day of class. In just a couple of days I will be taking my last exam and then I’m off for a month of vacation/work/moving prep….

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…

I’m Moving to Italy!

I’ve been hinting at this huge news for the last couple weeks and if you follow me on any of my social media you probably already know this, but I’m moving to Italy in February! Why you might ask? Just like my previous hop across the world, the answer is education. I have secured a position…

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…

A Taste of the Real World; Hell Week at Frankfurt School

Boy oh boy does this semester just keep getting better and better. If you saw my last post then you’ll know that last week I was a busy bee working on my uni’s advisory project. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then read on. Last Monday the entire Financial Advisory concentration of the…
