Now that you're in college/university, don't you have the posibility to do internships/international rotation or something like that?!

If you ever get the chance to go while you're studying, I'll really recommend it! You get you see everything in a whole other way when you have to live in a new foreign place instead of when you're a tourist travelling through...

There's a really good program where you can study in Prague for a semester. Several of my friends are doing that now, and they absolutely love it. I hope to do that maybe next year.

Cool!

I've only been to Prague once - in the summer a few years ago, it was 40-50C the whole time, hottest summer in Europe in I don't know how many years!

But I remember Prauge as a very beautiful city, with the Charles bridge and the old buildings and narrow streets!


What is it exactly you're studying? What degree will you get when you graduate?

Yeah, I knew it would be something like that! I was just thinking that you'd combined it with history or something along those lines - I don't know where I got that from...

I'm majoring in Government and Public Affairs (which is just a fancy title for political science) and minoring in Leadership.

History makes sense, it has a lot in common with government.

Sounds like a really good combination - and as an education you can use for a lot of things! Don't you have many employment posibilities once you finish? That's one of the things I really like about my education, it's so broad I can get a job almost anywhere as long as its related to health, chemisty, biology or something similar!

I'm hoping I can get a job with the governor or in the state legislature when I graduate...I've got the connections.

and I know... I miss my family and friends.


Nice to hear there's love in the air, Laura! You do know that before long everyone's going to be yelling "pictures!"


Merc, hope you have a good trip to Dublin. You sound like you've spent more time out of Denmark than in it.

People are already yelling "Pictures!"

He'll be coming this weekend so I'll take some

Will you be returning to the great country of Scotland anytime soon? You must be very homesick.

I took the U2 subway line to the Zoo Station and I was sooooooooo and my German teacher was the only one who understood why because U2 is also his favorite band. I forgot to take a picture in my excitement though


Have fun in Berlin! I absolutely love it there.

"Politics is not a science" - Thomas Jefferson

I love that quote (and I was a poli sci major, too... love the field / major, but it's a cool quote to work into essays once in a while, if a point is becoming too difficult to prove empirically.)

Poo. My boy called all disappointed because his parents want him home this weekend, and he lives up by DC. He's hoping he could maybe stop by on sunday but he's carpooling with other people so he can't really control the timing. Oh well...at least he was disappointed he couldn't spend the whole weekend with me
