Bored in Paris? Check These Out!

There is an endless list of things to see in Paris, that even a whole month is not nearly enough time to see it all. From museums, to parks, to restaurants, to simple performances on the street, there really is something for everyone to enjoy! 1. One of my favorite places I went to, which ...

WTF: What The France!

Now that my time in Paris has concluded, I have seen multiple instances where it would make people go “WHAT?!”. In fact, our school ESCE knew and even acknowledged how weird France can be, to the point where they opened a contest called “WTF: What The France!”. For it, we could submit pictures of unusual ...

So much FOOD!

Since being in both London and Paris, I have been trying my best to eat as many different foods as I possibly can. I did fail the first couple of days by only getting McDonalds. I couldn’t help it, I work at McDonald’s back at home and needed to try out the menu. The McDonalds ...

Brick Lane: Multiculturalism & Street Art

For my British Life & Visual Media course, we often take field trips and guided tours to have a better grasp on British culture. For one of our classes sessions, we took a tour of Brick Lane which is a long street located in East London. Since the first time I went there I was ...

Exploring San José Solo

This week was a bit slower than others, so I took the opportunity to explore new activities in the city on my own. I happened to come across an art gallery across the street from Costa Rica’s National Museum on TikTok, and I saw that they offer sip and paint sessions on the weekends for ...

Bombazar in San José

This past weekend, I was able to go to an annual thrifting event named Bombazar. It was essentially like one big pop-up shop for different vendors and thrift stores to set up- everything ranging from clothes, shoes, accessories, to even old radios and keyboards and general antique items could be found! I was on a ...

Weihnachtsmarkt

November 29 Feeling confident for the interview! November 30 The Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) in Germany is something I have been looking forward to ever since I was accepted into the study abroad program. However, Germany has been hit heavily with the next wave of COVID-19, and things are getting quite grim over here. My original ...

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 22 Today it day 89 of 90. No residence permits means I’ll be living illegally in Germany starting in 2 days. I really hope nothing it wrong with my documents. And…good news! I won’t be needing a physical residence permit- instead it is a piece of paper that indicates that I have left Germany ...

Zoom Fatigue, Broken Fridges, and Technoseum

November 15     Everyone’s most likely heard of Zoom fatigue. I’ve had some online classes before the pandemic, but now it’s starting to hit me real hard, much to the point where I keep blanking out during class. How many years has it been? Like two years? I’ve been working away at my laptop ...

An Uphill Battle

November 1 There is no class today because it’s All Saints’ Day (Allerheiligen). This public holiday occurs every first day of November in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria (Bayern), North Rhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen), Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz), and Saarland (Saarland). As much as I want to relax, there is still work to do. A few days ago, positions for co-op at Drexel opened up. That ...
