Slovakia Day 33 – Sick

I am fairly certain that I had just finished telling someone this weekend that I hardly ever get sick, and that I don’t expect to be getting sick anytime soon. I guess I should have knocked on wood because lo and behold I find myself sick.…

Slovakia Day 31 – Invalid Money

Yesterday, I was talking about how I was worried that I would not be able to relax for quite a while, and I must admit I was wrong. I believe that this morning I made the right choice to not go on a very special trip,…

Slovakia Day 30 – Karate

Today I felt very rushed, and I don’t think I will be getting a break tomorrow. Not that being rushed is something that is bad, I just sometimes need a break. With the orientation weekend being long and exhausting, it has been quite tough jumping right…

Slovakia Days 27-29 – Rotary Orientation

I am finally back from my first Orientation meeting, and boy has it been a long weekend. Not to say that it was not fun, every moment had its ups and downs, and I am really looking forward to being able to see all of the…

Slovakia Day 20 – Castles, Trains, and Cake!

Today was amazing, and in many different ways. I got to experience so many firsts today, I am worried that I won’t be able to get it all in one post! I was able to see a fantastic castle and art gallery, and I was able…

Slovakia Day 19 – Baseball & KFC

I finally made a really nice, concise list of everything that I want/need to get done. Of course, I loose the list the second I make it, but it is the thought that counts. Either way, today was a really long, but short day as well.…

Slovakia Day 18 – Field Trip

I am extremely conflicted right now. Do I follow as my host family ask, or do I write as my heart desires? Screw trying to write an intro paragraph so it looks nice on facebook. It annoys me anyway. Wait, I think I just wrote one.…
