One of the differences in the British curriculum is something I literally just learned about: they have three terms. The extra third term is there for exams--which, as an abroad student with the classes I've chosen, I don't have. Therefore, when the second term ends, we essentially have two months of "free time." I put that in quotes, because it's possibly the busiest time of the year. This is where all the traveling goes, the group trips, the bucket list items, all scheduled around final essays. I just returned from a three-week bender in Europe, and tried to document it as best as I could. Here's a taster of what I got up to. Now it's just time to hunker down and write before jetting off to Scotland in a week.

Take a break. Kenyon sometimes is too much, so take a break. Not from the college itself, but from your work, your activities and your responsibilities. Sit and listen to music, go for a run or take a nap, but make sure to unwind. Sometimes I listen to some Norah Jones or talk to my mom.
As I sit down to watch the UConn men’s basketball team play in the national championship I wonder….. Is it okay that I am a student at Kenyon, but support other colleges and universities? Here is some Erik Satie to listen to while you read.
