While the title of this blog post is a 1987 movie staring Steve Martin and John Candy, it’s also quite a succinct description of how I have traveled home over the various breaks throughout college.  Not having a car makes trekking the 300 miles home to Chicago an adventure each time a break rolls around.

Last Friday, November 21, the International Club put on the 28th Annual International Bazaar. Fellow Schroeder school ambassador Suhrob and I hosted the event. In total, the event raised $1,900 for UNICEF. It featured about 20 performances, food from so many parts of the world and booths representing the regions that U.E students come from. Great success! 

Swim Meet in Indianapolis

 

Just arrived in Indianapolis for a three day swim meet! We've been training since the first full week of school and the entire team is very excited to compete this weekend at the beautiful Natatorium at IUPUI. The Natatorium has hosted various world championships and Olympic Trials! We'll be swimming in the same pool that great athletes such as Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte have competed in. So you can imagine we're all very excited! Next week is home to one of my all time favortie holidays, Thanksgiving! As an Evansville native, I don't have too far to go! I'm very excited to relax at home with my family and eat a lot of fantastic home cooked food! I'd love to hear back from you guys as to what your Thanksgiving plans are! Feel free to comment below!

As part of International Education week, I presented on Tuesday about my experiences  studying abroad last semester in Peru. I really enjoyed the presentation. On one hand I was able to share my experiences abroad with people who truly wanted to listen and I it also gave me the opportunity to reflect on some of the happiest days of my life. It put me in a great mood for the rest of the day.

Baby, It's Cold Outside...

Well today I woke up to a couple of inches of gorgeous white snow. It's the first snow of the season and it came much earlier than I was expecting. While I wasn't quite ready for this crazy cold weather, it does makes our campus absolutely beautiful. It also makes me realize how close the holidays are! I love the holiday season, so I am already excited for winter break!

Whirlwind Adventure

 

A couple of weeks ago, I was able to go to the beautiful Songyang, China where I learned how to make tea (it is harder than it looks!), ride bikes through the tea fields/mountains, and see some ancient towns. I had such a great time! A day after my roommates and I got back from Songyang, it was off to the next adventure – Beijing and Xi’An. What a whirlwind!!

You (Yes, You) Can Do It

We're nearing the brilliant feast of Thanksgiving and the luxurious days of Winter Break, but we're not there just yet. 
We still have papers to write, presentations to present, exams to study for, books to read, and finals to take. And isn't it remarkably convenient that every paper from every class is due on the same day? It's the best. 
So now's probably the time when the stress begins to bubble under the surface, when procrastination kicks into gear, when sleep is just a fond memory of the past.
But hey. You know what? It's going to be all right. You can do this. We can do this. We're all in this together (or so I've been told).

What to do one random Saturday in Evansville, Indiana with a few of your bestfriends? Well, if you are bored, and all else fails, you can always go explore. This past weekend some of my best friends and I decided we did not want to stay around campus, or head to the movie theaters, or do anything ordinary.
