No School Blues

I really miss school, particularly the academic part of it. Which has got me thinking seriously the past few days about grad school. Other than obviously God and my family and friends, the thing I love most in the world is languages. No question. Which has got me thinking that maybe I am supposed to…

Itchin’ to Go Somewhere

“I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby-I just don’t care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it’s mine.”-Elizabeth Gilbert

New Job(s) (continued)

I saw a posting on CraigsList on Wednesday morning to be an event intern. The posting said that it was paid, just thru the end of October (which is good because I want to go abroad soon), and would require some travel (you know that got me excited!). I e-mailed the lady my resume, not…

The Way of the Heart

I have read several books by Henri Nouwen, but The Way of the Heart may just be my favorite. It is a short book and I finished it today after starting it on Monday. This book is about the spirituality of the 4th and 5th century Desert Fathers and Mothers in Egypt. The Desert Fathers…

Embracing My Inner Hippie

Within the last two years, I have switched to using as many natural hair care and body products as I can. I have found that I love Burt’s Bees shampoo, conditioner, and face wash, Tom’s toothpaste and mouthwash, and Whole Foods 365 brand lotion. I have DEFINITELY noticed a difference in natural products compared to…

Other than its natural beauty, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Austria. It may have had to do with the cold and rain, both of which I was unprepared for, or the 8264 people that puffed cigarette smoke in my face over the course of 5 days. But I loved the little city of Innsbruck….
