I’m going to get real for a moment. Life is crazy right now. It seems like each day I have one million and one things to think about and get done…and then more gets added on top of that. In fact, it’s so crazy that I am starting to get excited about going to workout … More A Tornado of Craziness Called “Life”
As most of you know, I am currently in Spain studying abroad. While it may only seem like I’m traveling around and having fun via all the pictures I’ve posted on my Facebook, I am “studying” also while I am here. I put studying in quotations because the classes that I am taking are not … More Slow and Steady Wins the Race
As our class comes to an end, I am sad to think about how almost a month has gone by, yet I am very excited to see what the rest of my time in Spain and Europe holds. We have officially booked all of our trips we are going on and although it will be … More One More For The Road..

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine and I went to Madrid solely to go to a new coffee shop that I had … More Celebrate every small…adventure
A week, I was wandering around Barcelona, Spain with my new friends. This was our first venture outside of the Madrid area and I was excited and eager to see what all of the hype was about. Now, for those of you who may not understand my title for this post, the Cheetah Girls were … More My weekend as a Cheetah Girl
As the end of day 5 draws nears, I have walked for 33.5 miles, explored two major cities in Spain, started class at a new school, took the train for the first time, made some new friends, and learned so much. I started class on Thursday. It went really well, I thought! We took a … More Vamos a Madrid!
I took the personality test and answered all of the questions honestly and my result was that I am a “Consul”. Consuls are extraordinarily caring, social, and popular. They are also always eager to help. It was crazy to me how accurate the results were. “Consuls want to make sure everybody is happy.” Yep. “Consuls … More Personality Test
I have been in Spain for 36 hours and I have four words to sum up my thoughts so far: beautiful, compact, and culture shock. I am studying in Alcalá de Henares which is a suburb of Madrid, the capital of Spain. The city is full of history, beautiful old buildings, cobblestone roads, and plenty of … More So much change, in so little time.
