From Far Corners of a Sphere

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and I’ll admit that I’m drawn back to the page for a combination of reasons.  This Friday marked two occasions, one much sadder and more important than the other: a series of terrorist attacks in Paris that shook the world, and Northeastern’s 10th (and my final) Husky Hunt.…

The Power of the Exhibit

I’m eight years old.  It’s my first time in New York City (aside from that one time I was so young I don’t remember) and my brother and I are taking in the sights and sounds of this amazing, bustling place.  It has so much energy, there are so many people, and my family is happy.…

Part III of the study abroad blog.  Part I can be found here and Part II here. Almost five months ago, I walked into Pooley House #42, Westfield Way, London E1 4PU for the first time.  It was a bit before midnight, the air was cool and damp, and I was severely jetlagged after a…

Late-Night Essay-Writing

Sports (from London)

As you may know–or have sharply assumed–I am currently studying abroad in London!  It’s cool, I love it, and it provides quite a contrast to my normal thoughts/assumptions, which I find quite intriguing. So last week a few new friends and I went to a professional soccer game (my first ever), the FA Cup Round…
