'Reflections at the halfway mark'

67 days.

67 days I’ve been in my new home of Costa Rica.

67 days until I go back home the U-S-of-A.

I have a lot of mixed feelings about that revelation, some of them clichés but all genuine.

I’d also like to name this the theme song for last week, as it was also the High Holy Day week, the most sacred week of the year for Jews.

“We’re halfway there, livin’ on a prayer.”

'Why I quit my internship'

It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that I’ll be leaving PBS MediaShift (and it’s podcast, Mediatwits) on Sept. 4.

Long story short, I realized I needed to spend more time on my academic pursuits (especially when all of my homework is in Spanish) and exploring Costa Rica to its fullest extent.

Read this post on IFSA-Butler’s Study Abroad blog on my reasoning to give up the best internship I’ve ever had.

Thanks to Steff Dazio, Paige Jones, Rachel Karas and probably other people who told me to do this a long time ago and waited for me to make my own decision. I appreciate your patience and your concern for my well-being.
