Happy Holidays everyone! I’m sitting here at my parents computer in Massachusetts, looking at the snow fall softly outside the window and my small, curly hairded dog run in circles around my chair. Its nice to relax after a pretty rough semester. Now I am getting ready for my departure to Chile in Februrary! Thanks to the steady reminders from the abroad office, most of my materials are in. They’ve been really helpful over the semester with reminders of due dates and helpful tips to get ready. I’m getting more and more excited (and nervous) as the date approaches!
