18 Days Left!

There are 18 days until I’ll be in Argentina! Yesterday I talked a bit at the end about talking to people back home when you are feeling frustrated or homesick and I want to expand on that a bit today.

If you are going to study a language abroad for a year, if your primary intention for your abroad program is to immerse you in a language so that you will become fluent, it is important that you do…

19 Days Left!

Ok! So if you’ve been following along with my countdown, you’re probably looking at this title thinking, “Hmmm I could have sworn yesterday there were 21 days left.” Well, I’m embarrassed to inform you that I miscalculated the days and I was a day off. I’m sorry!! But I have figured it out now and will be moving ahead with the correct number of days because the countdown must go on! So, I finally…

21 More Days!

There are 21 days left until I will be in Argentina and so my countdown of travel tips and language learning lessons continues. Today’s tip is a little more specifically for students traveling abroad, but can still apply to anyone traveling to another country.

Today’s travel tip then, is a little bit about how to make that happen,…

23 Days Left!

There are 23 more days until I will be in Argentina! Yesterday I talked a bit about food safety, the day before, I talked a bit about bringing your own medicine, so to bring this full circle, today my travel tip is about bringing your own food! Of course, I’m not saying that you should bring a suitcase full of goodies whenever you travel, that would waste precious suitcase space and you’d miss…

24 More Days!

There are 24 days until my trip to Argentina!! To continue in the spirit of getting sick abroad, I wanted to share some advice that my doctor gave me. A lot of people go to other countries and they want to explore all that there is to eat and there is a stigma that the best places are hidden hole-in-the-wall restaurants that nobody really knows about. What you want to be careful of, though, is…

25 More Days!

25 more days until I’ll be in Argentina! Today I have more travel advice that centers around getting sick. Before you travel to another country, check out the Center for Disease Control website, cdc.gov, where there is a section dedicated  to traveler’s health. It will ask you where you are traveling to and what kind of traveler you are (i.e. with children, extended stay, chronic illness, etc.)…

"Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box."

"All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity."

"I thank all Police, you are the ‘Thin Blue Line’ protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages. America is surely at the tipping point."

Just a few quotes (in case it’s hard to read) from that collection of donation messages for Darren Wilson.

Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?

"At least one member of the CHICAGO POLICE supports you brother"

This is why, white people
