Returning home was a welcomed change. I missed a lot of things about Switzerland.

- The public transport

- Their efficiency

- The instant access to nature

- Stores being closed on Sunday (forced relaxation time)

- A sense of aesthetic appeal

 

On the other hand, I also find m...

Wow!!

 

I haven’t posted since the summer. Boy, a lot has happened since then.

I settled into a couple different jobs, alongside my internship at the Akron Museum of Art, exploring the vast possibilities a post-grad has at their disposal.

One valuable lesson I have learned while navigating the city of Basel: make sure you know where you’re going and then have five back up plans.

 

This city’s transportation labeled for dummies, and there are signs letting you know exactly when the bus/tram is going to ar...

My refined sugar challenge didn’t quite work out for me.

I finally did it!

 

I’ve been trying to make macarons for a while now.  Unfortunately all the recipes I’ve tried until now always required a certain delicacy that honestly, I just never had the patience for. However, while babysitting the other day a certain book caught...

Today, I’ve decided to take a moment to just decompress.

 

You would think that I had already done so, seeing that I have just received my B.A. with honors in both of my majors and a cum laude distinction.

 

Instead, I’ve spent the past two weeks trying desperately to find...

Reflections:

 

Going through high school you can’t wait to get to college, in order to truly begin the path toward your desired career. Everyone always talks about the opportunities you will be able to explore and embrace.
