Abandoned Buildings Wherever I Go

At home, I love visiting abandoned places and it never crossed my mind that I would find one here in Ljubljana. Originally, I planned on going to the center of the town and attempting to find a bridesmaid dress for my sister’s wedding but my day turned out completely different. As soon as I hadContinue reading “Abandoned Buildings Wherever I Go”

Dancing and Desserts

First week of classes is in the books. My first class was Critical Theory of Culture and the professor dived right into his four hour lecture on human consciousness, Hegelian dialectics, commodity fetishism, phenomenology of the mind, and all sorts of other fun convoluted theories. Pretty intense way to start my semester, I’m going toContinue reading “Dancing and Desserts”

Settling into Studies

The past couple days have been very busy with getting ready for classes, filling out paperwork, getting a bus pass, signing up for student meals and other not very fun things. For quite a while, being in Ljubljana has felt somewhat dream-like, that any day I will wake up back in Kansas city. More recently,Continue reading “Settling into Studies”

Finding Narnia… Or Maybe Some New Friends

My newly found friend and her friends let me join along on their trip to Soča Valley where Prince Caspian from The Chronicles of Narnia was filmed. I was ecstatic to go along because I love Narnia and read all the books as a child. So after having some rough times in Slovenia thus far,Continue reading “Finding Narnia… Or Maybe Some New Friends”

Sunday Stressing

I woke up super late today, turns out my body is not yet acclimated to the time zone. Today is Sunday which means that everything is closed in Ljubljana. Luckily, I took some time today to stress out about moving into the dorms tomorrow. I’ve met a couple of people who are familiar with theContinue reading “Sunday Stressing”

Exploring Ljubljana

Headache central this morning when I woke up. Most likely from all the changes in my sleeping schedule. Jet Lag. Is. Real. Nothing stopped me from exploring the city today, not a headache that’s for sure. First adventure of the day was to see the Ljubljana castle. You can see this castle from all aroundContinue reading “Exploring Ljubljana”

Airports on Airports on Airports

Today is the day! Today is the day that is so long it stretches into the following day. Woke up late, car got stuck in the frozen driveway, left things behind(not my anxiety), fought with automated credit card menus, and also just all the stuff that comes with going to the airport. Luckily, I hadContinue reading “Airports on Airports on Airports”

Leaving to Ljubljana!

                          Only two days until I leave for my study abroad trip in Ljubljana, Slovenia! For those of you who have no idea where Slovenia is(I wouldn’t know if I weren’t about to live there for 6 months), it is a very small countryContinue reading “Leaving to Ljubljana!”

Before I Leave…

I know I’ll only be in Europe for six months but there is a long list of favorite things I want to do in Kansas City before I leave. First adventure included having a day of thrifting with my best friend. One of my absolute favorite things to do is go to thrift stores, findingContinue reading “Before I Leave…”

I Chopped Off All My Hair!

So I’ve been wanting to cut my hair for a long time but I have a long and complicated history with my hair. As a kid I always had really super long hair because that’s the way my parents liked it and I liked it that way as well. Like past my butt long, blonde,Continue reading “I Chopped Off All My Hair!”
