Difficult Reflections

My experience in India has been one of the most confusing and conflicting times of my life. Right now, I feel stuck. I’ve been going out and having fun more than focusing on school work. Hanging out with friends has become somewhat of an escape for me. It has been hard to emotionally handle all…

Unity in Diversity

I am so excited to get into the full swing of my classes.  I know I’m going to learn so much about Indian culture, politics, and tradition through having a lived experience in India as well as taking sociological courses.  During my Population and Poverty course last Tuesday, the teacher explained a phenomenon that immediately…

First two weeks

It’s been exactly 2 weeks since I first stepped foot in the vast and beautiful country of India.  I was exhausted from 25+ hours of traveling and a crazy 10 ½ hour time change from Indianapolis to Bangalore.  While I traveled on and off planes to India, I observed women rocking all colors of the rainbow,…

Ready to take off!

It’s here! At 5am tomorrow morning I’ll be boarding on the 25 hour long flight to India. I am both very nervous and excited.  I don’t feel prepared mentally and emotionally, but then again how can you be prepared for the culture shock of being halfway across the world? Tomorrow I’ll start my journey in Indianapolis,…

A Day in Pompei

Much too early in the morning, Brianna and I set out to get on the metro and then onto the train to take us to Napoli Centrale. Once there, we found a train which took us to Pompei. Sadly enough, the way to get on this Pompei train was not easy. The information desk is…

Many people go back to Gulf Shores or some other places with friends to party hardy, visit their family, and then there are those that simply don’t do anything and yet somehow still spend about the same amount of money. Well, I am that…

When You Reach Enlightenment

I stayed up for two days because I wanted to keep my Saturday night experience going and I believe the after effect of it all is that I got my enlightenment that I’ve been studying and reading about for over two years now. I want to share it with everyone because I’ve only read about…

Ending of Winter Term

Well, it has been a great semester thus far and I’m glad to say it ended with a high note….and me wanting to fall asleep. Finals week was tough for the most part, especially the last day. I had two finals in one day. The whole week was a little hectic and chaotic, but the…

My Roommate from Freshmen Year

When I first applied to Hanover, I didn’t know anyone from my high school that were thinking about going there too, or any of acquaintances for that matter. I remember over the summer that I got an email that said something about there being an app on Facebook where you answered a bunch of questions…
