year abroad :: frustration

*Disclaimer: This is along the lines of a rant.* I’m feeling a little regretful that I lost track of journaling my days here in Libourne, especially when it comes to a writing a new blog post, but when I’m alone, I just want peace. Or, my bed. I just want to shut my eyes and […]

year abroad :: short but sweet

Finally!!! I have time for a blog post. So I’ve officially been in France three weeks as of tonight. I can’t believe three weeks ago I was on a plane to Bergerac. I genuinely never expected to feel quite as home as this. Of course, it’s not simple. Every day there is something new I […]

I’m already absolutely shattered from such a long, busy, yet totally freakin’ awesome […]

So I have now officially moved back home for summer after a tremendously stressful yet enjoyable second year.  This year has tested me so much, but my faith is even stronger, new friendships have been made, and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.  It’s going to be a stressful summer with SO much to get […]

Hey lovelies, it’s so great to be able to post so much more often (thats a lotta adverbs there) on Kulayrosas.  I’m constantly looking for new material to write about, especially as my posts usually begin as a thought, are written out like a waffle, and then edited into something (relatively) cohesive. *face palm* So, […]
