Summary

Fall of junior year was my first semester back from Germany. It was good to see everybody again, but of course I missed my free sprited European lifestyle!

I shared a suite with a bunch of awesome sophomore girls (Joy, Jes, and Christie) quite near where I used to live (still Burton 5). Other than just day to day living, I also made some fun trips to NYC with friends. It was a wild semester!
