The Importance of Embracing Uncertainty While Living Abroad 02/11/16

Ciao Ciao!  I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a big fan of a scheduled routine. At home my days are constructed based off my to-do list, so there’s not much uncertainty in my everyday life! As you can probably guess, this is NOT the case while studying abroad. Unfamiliar situations arise daily, and there’s […]

Embracing My Inner Tourist 10/15/15
