My Letter to the First Year

If you're like me and about to start your senior year of college, you've probably been reminiscing about the past 3 or so years.

Schwimmweste. The only German word in my vocabulary. Aside from my last name. But after this school year, I'll hopefully be quite fluent. To a toddler at least. It's been a while since I've posted so here's an update: I've been to the beach. I've visited Rome, the most beautiful city I've ever seen next [...]
