My dearest Sara,
I love that we now have a Skype schedule (#ThursdayNightsS&SChats). Yes, I just made up that hashtag. It sounds like there have been a lot of exciting developments in your life. Advent Illustrated is beginning soon, you get to see Ken in a month, you are enjoying fall at Wellesley (and at Starbucks too 😉 ). I love getting to hear about your life and as always, I miss you!
Oddly enough, finals are here. At the university I am attending in Amsterdam, we take two classes for two months and two for the next two months. Therefore, finals hit right around Halloween and then again at Christmas. In fact, in one week from today I will be taking my final exam for my Secure Programming class. I am a bit stressed but also excited to start my new courses. I didn’t particularly enjoy my first two so I hope the next two will be better (that is the perk of getting to switch midway between what is considered a “semester”).
I feel a bit like I don’t quite have my life in order right now. I just returned from a five day trip to Italy and while it was incredibly beautiful and enjoyable, I came back to reality with inboxes full of emails, blog posts to catch up on and three assignments waiting for completion. In fact, yesterday I almost missed my flight because I was so absorbed in writing a new blog post that I didn’t even realize my flight was boarding (whoops!).
Overall, things are going really well. Dani arrives in a little over thirty days and we are traveling to Germany together which I am really looking forward to. I actually really miss Wellesley a lot especially because fall there is my favorite time of the year. There is nothing like being away that makes you appreciate it more!
I know midterms are happening at Wellesley right now so best of luck and I can’t wait to talk again soon!
Love & Liefs,
