Roma per Sempre (AJ Fedoruk)

Metaphors in Ecuador (Gwen Hasenberg)

Last night I had an interesting dream.  I was packing up my suitcases.   While I was packing I kept remembering more and more stuff that I needed to bring with me and more and more stuff just kept appearing out of nowhere that I needed to pack.   I was running…

Personal Growth (Alessandra Mendez)

Living Worlds Apart (Pat Pederson)

Final Week (Casey Olson)

Today marked the first day of my final week abroad.  With the gentle sound of rain hitting my window this morning, I didn’t even want to get out of bed.  I am pretty sure I have myself convinced that if I don’t go through the motions of my final week…
