When I was in the second grade, I was introduced to the Beatles by my favorite teacher (shout-out to Ms. Tolbert!). I begged my mom to buy me the 1 | Beatles album on a Sams run one fine day in November 2000, and spent a concerning amount of time listening to it over and over… Continue reading All You Need is Love
This past spring, in addition to assisting in the general study abroad experience for our spring kiddos, I helped with a lot of the logistics for our summer custom programs (CPs)!

This past week I was able to host two of my friends from high school,… Continue reading We’ll Always Have London
It has been a crazy month! I came back to London at the end of January entirely ready for this semester but never anticipated all that February would bring. I have new classes, a new job, and a new flat. A few updates… My spring courses are all going great so far and I can’t… Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes!
