I know I have not posted in a lifetime!

Here is a quick update on what has been going on in my life.  I spent six weeks at home mostly eating and enjoying time with my family and friends.  I always enjoy being home because it is usually a time when I can decompress.  Unfortunately, I did lots of procrastinating and ended up writing some papers very last minute.  I did get to go to vegas with my parents and Analea, which was in fact so so much fun.  I also went to New York to visit some friends and my godmother, Leigh!  I got to go sledding for the first time in my life, which ended hilariously (picture me sliding down a hill of snow backwards).  Almost forgot to say that I was in DC for a day! I was finally reunited with my roommate Meg! (8 months is a long time not to see someone that I used to share a room with!)

Since my return I’ve been reading a lot and spending lots of time at my favorite bookstore Fahrenheit 451.  I also came back to a very clean room that is now filled with my 100 pounds of luggage I hauled over from the U.S.  I am taking a class on Russian Theatre and have seen both Diary of a Madman written by Gogol and Living Corpse written by Tolstoy.  It has also gotten quite warm out, hitting 30-35 everyday.  While that may not seem warm for Texas, it might as well be summer in Petersburg.  There is a photo of some ducks swimming in the melted part of the river.

I am making a promise to put up at least two blog posts per month (maybe more if I do something worth telling about)! Sending all my love back home ❤
