I’ve remarked on this more than once to my friends and family: I am somehow busier with a 14 credit load than I was with a 24 credit load.  All the myths Hollywood spins about senior year (whether it be about high school or college) are utterly false, I’ve discovered. It’s also probably one of […]

Growing up, I was the epitome of a bookworm. I inhaled books at a startling pace and would rather spend a sunny afternoon reading in Barnes and Noble.  At my parent-teacher conference in fifth grade, my teacher shook her head and said, “I have never had to tell a student off for reading too much […]

A Student’s Best Friend

February 10th, 2013 · No Comments · Amanda Ekstein '13, Three-Year Degree Program

Looking back on my three years at Arcadia, much has changed.  Yet, as I sift through a treasure trove of memories, I notice one constant.  Something that has been with me through thick and thin, has stuck by me through finals and papers, and taken more beatings than a WWE wrestler for me. Of course, […]

A Treatise on Travelling: Knowing When to Stop

January 23rd, 2013 · No Comments · Amanda Ekstein '13, Three-Year Degree Program

There is an idiom that we Americans borrowed from the Brits (who borrowed it from the Romans): “A rolling stone gathers no moss.” We use this saying to express the notion that we ought to always be striving forward, improving ourselves, so that we might not stagnate and run out of creativity or become rusty.

Hello, hello everyone! You all may faintly recall me, as it has been awhile since my last post. I’m Amanda, a senior International Business and Culture student in the 3-Year program. You may realize that I’m the girl who always uses quotes in her titles. As this blog is mostly about students enjoying study abroad/preparing […]

Thanksgiving was relaxing.

So I’ve been in Connecticut for the past few days, since my friend had let me stay with her over the break. We just had Thanksgiving dinner/lunch, sine both she and her mother had work on Thursday.

The time left until Thanksgiving break can now be counted in hours. Unsurprisingly, my first class of the day was sparsely populated; much like how Christmas creeps up on Thanksgiving, students tend to leave early for break.  Still, I can’t really blame them. When even Black Friday sales start on Thursday, the notion of waiting […]

That weekend went by so quickly…

November 19th, 2012 · No Comments · Lawin Miclat '15

Whew! I almost forgot to post one today. My head is throbbing really badly so I apologize if this is much less coherent than my other posts. Anyway, this weekend was fun, went places and did things with people. I’ll talk about it more under the cut.
