I would like to apologize for not updating my blog in a while, I’ve been pretty busy with exams and I also managed to travel to Greece for a week while I had time off during the exam period. I had four total exams, I am so glad that they are finished and I am excited to beginning the new semester next week. Overall, I think my exams went alright, although I haven’t received any of my grades yet. I feel comfortable about my sociology exam; even though it was pretty difficult and there was a large amount of material on the exam, I studied a lot and I’m now awaiting my grade. Meeting with my professor on a weekly basis and borrowing notes from other students in the class was definitely very important so I’m hoping that my hard work will pay off. As for philosophy, my professor gave Kelsey and I a separate exam from the rest of the class and I feel pretty good about it. Philosophy is definitely not my favorite subject but I’m happy that I stuck with the class in the end. My last exam that I had was for Latin American fiction and it is the class that I am most worried about. I already know that I passed the class, however, the professor grades the exams very rigidly and does not give any partial credit. I am hoping for the best and am anxious to see my grades.
On another note, I would like to tell you all about my amazing time in Greece! Since we had a break during exams, Kelsey, Brooke, and I decided to go to Athens and Santorini, one of the Greek islands. It was incredible! We saw the acropolis in Athens as well as the other ruins throughout the city. We spent the first three days in Athens in a great hostel, explored the city, and ate Gyros every day for lunch. We then went to Santorini for 3 days which was absolutely beautiful. It was exactly what I had pictured of Greece, with all of the blue and white buildings overlooking the mediterranean. We went to the beaches which had red and black sand, and even went for a swim one day even though it was a bit chilly. It was well worth it though! We spent our last day in Athens walking around the city and enjoying the best baklava I had ever had. Overall, it was an awesome trip and I am so glad that I had the chance to go.
As for right now, I am enjoying a few days off before my classes start up for the next semester. Also, it’s hard to believe, but I’ve already been back for a month! The time really does fly!
