Inter-semester Travels

Whew! Well, after weeks of studying and three two-hour exams, I’m free! Exams weren’t as difficult as I was dreading; I think I did pretty well. I was really intimidated at first because I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I went into a University exam, but I feel a lot better about them now. I’m still a bit nervous about the results, but they should be posted any day now so my anxiety will be relieved.

At my University there is a two-week break between exams and second semester. It’s a kind of weird system that they’re changing next year to coincide better with other US and UK schools but I’m not complaining this year; a vacation is always welcome. I don’t have enough time to go home again, plus two sets of transatlantic flights and jetlag so close together would be tough, so I’m traveling around Europe for a little over half of the break. I really enjoy traveling so I’m really glad to be taking this trip. I’ve spent a few days in Edinburgh, which I have only ever flown into. It was lovely. Tomorrow morning, much earlier in the morning than I would like, I take off for one of my favorite places in the entire world: Paris.

I’m an art fanatic so I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the home of the Louvre and D’Orsay; the abundance of crepes doesn’t hurt either. But I’ve somehow managed to find a way to bring work along with me. I agreed to write a few articles for newspapers back at the University, mostly ones reviewing art exhibits, during vacation. Usually I wouldn’t let anything in the world interfere with my precious vacation time but I’m going to see the art anyways so I am more than glad to contribute.

Have a happy second semester!
