SIDE NOTE: I began writing this post on September 19th

I’ve officially been in Barcelona for two weeks and I absolutely love it. I started my first class at CEA my program and had orientation for my three other classes at Pompeu Fabra, a local university here this past week. I am excited to start my Spanish course at Pompeu Fabra (UPF) because every day I’ve been learning new words and finding more locals to practice the language with and I know that starting the class will just be another big step in getting better and better at speaking Spanish.

I got a cute black maxi dress, a funky stone bangle and obviously a macaron because  of course they happened to have a vendor selling them lol I simply can’t be tamed around french pastries.

My First Two Weeks in Smashville: Festivals, First-Time Jobs and FAR too many Cowboy Hats

Moving to a new city is pretty overwhelming. You can research about the best restaurants and bars as much as you want, but nothing prepares you for the amount of inherited ignorance you assume when you make your first wrong turn down a one-way street. The sign is clearly there ( ONE WAY ONLY) but you were too busy looking down at Google maps on your phone trying to figure out how to get to the closest gas station, because you literally don’t even know where that is.
