Finally home from Spain! When iMovie decides to let me export, I’ll upload the next in my travel vlog series, but for now, I want to talk about exactly what this post is titled- being a young woman in a crowd, OR, more accurately, how I got sexually harassed while in Spain and why I no longer trust the majority of the male population because traumatic experiences make me paranoid.

It’s important to recognize that, before reading this, you might not like the same apps I do simply because everyone uses their phones differently. So this top ten list, in NO PARTICULAR ORDER, gives you the apps a 21 year old liberal arts student who owns her own website uses the most. Also, all the apps I mention are COMPLETELY FREE, so that’s also a plus. Read on »
After three days of Avila with just Kelly, Margaret, and me, today we met up with the rest of our travel writing and spanish culture group in Madrid. The feel is very different from place to place- Avila was much more old-fashioned and small-town, while Madrid is absolutely a bustling, modern city. I loved Avila, which if you’re my friend on Facebook you could probably tell from all the pictures I’ve posted (don’t worry, blogglings, I’ll have travel vlogs for you, and I’ll probably post a bunch of pictures later), but I think I’m going to equally love Madrid.
Even though I’m totally broke, I am so, SO glad I’m on this trip. It was worth it after the first day, and it can only get better from here. And in related news, my budget is working super well and I’m actually well within it! WOO!!
Just wanted to give ya’ll a quick update before my “real” blog goes up later today (which will be nighttime for me and late morning for you). Margaret, Kelly, and I made it to our hotel in Avila, Spain with no problems and plenty of time in the day to spare. It’s about 1:45pm here, so after catching our breath from traveling so far, we’re gonna find food and explore.
It’s colder here than I expected. It’s colder here than we ALL expected, so now we’re thinking we might need to do a spot of shopping to survive the rest of the trip. All of my clothes are sleeveless and the warmest thing I have is a thin, cotton cardigan. This should be interesting.
But Spain is beautiful, I already love it here, and I’ve found that I remember a lot more from Spanish class than I previously thought I would. Check in soon!
PS. I would have posted this five hours ago but the internet was being weird in then we all fell asleep.
I watch a lot of TV. I might even want to write for TV someday, since my forte is dialog. And so it only makes sense to give you guys my TOP TEN TV SHOWS in order (mostly)(I am bad at deciding the order for things such as this). Read on »
I go to college in Oregon, but I’m originally from Colorado. This meant that, when I turned 21 and my driver’s license expired, I was out of state and couldn’t gt a new, “adult” license. After a very rude DMV employee berated me over the phone back in January, I sent a $3 check to the Colorado Division of Motor or whatever, in Denver, to get a sticker that extends my license for another year, until I could get BACK to Colorado to renew it for real. I did this. Read on »
