Hassie: Poor but Sexy

Mullets, Museums, and Mail

No, that's not the future; it's a library It’s Fashion Week here in Berlin. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an invite to the festivities. But seeing as I like to wear scrubs on a fairly regular basis (not out of necessity, mind you, but rather for comfortable), I guess I can’t blame them. Fashion here in […]

Just J-terming It

Life these days is moving at a fairly leisurely pace (J-term-esque). I’ve got time to play sports, cook, read books that are simply for enjoyment, etc. It’s kind of nice, but I really should start figuring out my thesis stuff… oh well, in due time. On Tuesday night I went out with a friend of […]

Healthy and Happy

And we’re back (said like the Jimmy Fallon skit with Man in the Can and all those other great characters). I’ve now recovered my strength (and control of my bowels). A worthy accomplishment. Anyway, this week we finished our epidemiology module and with it, our introductory courses to public health. On our last day, we […]

Worst Week Ever

Now you may be wondering, what kind of title is that for a blog about returning to Europe? Really, it’s quite a simple explanation. Diarrhea. No, not just going to the bathroom slightly too often, but rather it’s so bad that a 30 minute reprieve from the toilet feels like a gift from God. I […]


I’m currently back in America for winter break for about two weeks. It’s pretty surreal. But I’m not sure if it exactly feels like Christmas seeing as all the land is a dull brown rather than gloriously white. Hopefully some snow actually comes, but who knows. Maybe we’ll have to resort to throwing ice cubes […]

So, So Close

This beard made from cotton balls was more realistic than "Santa's" Just completed my last full week of school before heading back to America. Not going to lie, ridiculously excited for those two weeks of glory. It’ll be amazing to see my friends and family, and to top it off, my sister-in-law is due to […]

Gusties Galore

Rachel There was a major influx of Gusties into Berlin this week. By major I mean two, but for me that’s pretty huge. We’ll get to that shortly. Shopping. Some people love it. Some people hate it. I’m more the latter (unless it is for ties, but that’s neither here nor there). Since I rented […]

A German Thanksgiving or Two

Hagrid's coat is so warm Oddly, being in Europe for Thanksgiving, I was actually lucky enough to have two Thanksgiving meals (neither of which were actually on Thanksgiving, but you have to be understanding when the fourth Thursday in November isn’t a federal holiday in Deutschland). On Tuesday my scholarship association was throwing a Thanksgiving […]

Haulin’ It to Holland

With all the canals, Amsterdam better hope Global Warming is made up. Sadly, it's not.   I like to think I’m at least a fairly decent writer and have pretty good English (I’m hoping having worked at the GAC Writing Center gives me some credence to say this). With that said, I got OWNED this […]

Wonderfully Glorious Success

This week I got one of the best calls ever. It was about 11:30 at night and naturally being the grandpa my early morning classes have turned me into, I was in bed sleeping. In the deep recesses of my mind, I hear my phone go off. I answer it with nothing more than a […]
