He estado evitando escribir mi último post. De hecho, he estado evitando hacer muchas cosas antes de irme de España. Pensaba que, si no escribía, si no decía adiós, si no hacía mi equipaje, no tenía que marcharme. Sé que no puedo quedarme, pero me siento tan cómoda y contenta viviendo aquí que ése sería […]


So You Miss Chipotle?

I was recently reading through past blog posts and I noticed something. Or rather, I noticed the lack of something: ANY MENTION OF TIERRA BURRITO! If God hadn’t rested on the 7th day, He would have immediately created Tierra on that day. Well I guess he did technically create “la tierra” on the first day […]

Stress takes a toll on the brain.

Stress and Self-Care

In this post I’m going to talk about self-care and mental health. Finals period is here and obviously, it’s stressful. I am someone who has always been able to function well with stress, but recently, I’ve been having a very hard time managing everything I have left to do. So, in today’s post I want […]


My internship: Fulbright Commission Spain

This semester, I’ve had the pleasure of working as an intern for the Education USA branch of the Fulbright Commission Spain. The Fulbright Commission is housed within the State Department, but the actual goal of Education USA as its own entity is equipping Spanish undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in pursuing studies […]



An artist’s depiction of my heart today. I hate goodbyes, I hate them so. Even with acquaintances I get sentimental. It’s mind boggling to me that in less than 3 weeks I’ll be home. WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?! I feel like I blinked and now my semester in Spain is over. Of course looking back, […]

It is getting close to the end and it is time to start saying goodbye and hello to this adventure and to future travels and new experiences. I’m sitting in my room trying to write a final paper, but instead I find myself writing this last blog post. My time here in Spain has been […]

Una nueva generación española lucha contra los prejuicios más arraigados en la sociedad.

La otra cara de España

Hay infinitas cosas de ti que me encantan, España. Tanto como quiero el café con leche y la abundancia de comidas con huevo, la diversidad geografica en el país, y la belleza extraordinaria, hay alguna cosa de la que te quiero hablar. Voy a ilustrarla con una historia. Durante esta semana, estaba caminando por el […]

Biblioteca de las Escuelas Pías

Cozy Cafés

With finals coming up you’ll probably be looking for a place to study that isn’t your room. I know from experience that studying at home results in me crawling into bed napping extensively. So, my solution to this problem has been to study in public places where there is easy access to caffeinated drinks and […]

¡Semana Santa!

Spring break here is a little later than the usual U.S. spring break, ours starts the second week of April. For Semana Santa you pretty much have to travel, for one because that’s a whole week to explore a new place! And secondly, the program doesn’t pay for anything that week sooo… You’re pretty much […]
