My weeks in Münster

Any of my initial expectations of what my time in Münster would be like were immediately thrown out the window in the beginning of the first week. By the first few days of classes I had already met so many other students from so many other countries. My classes started off pretty slow, and by…

A New Way of Life

Week 2 Settling into a new routine has been a fun and interesting experience; but it hasn’t been an easy one. Having to jump out of bed an hour early to catch my bus, or to try and make time to stop by a bakery for breakfast, is not something I would normally do back…

The Countdown

Week 3 Time is just passing by so quickly! I feel happy and sad at the same time. Student life at KAPITO has defiantly been interesting. Having six hours of class a day, dedicated to only the german language is no easy task. I feel like I have only one month to train for a…

Final Farewell

Week 4 When I first came to KAPITO, along with other Rollins students that I barely knew, I didn’t think saying goodbye would seem so sad. When looking back, four weeks seemed like a long time. Taking class day by day, along with any other chores I had to do on a daily basis, seemed…

Late? Yes, I know…

Week 1 What a journey! I am no new traveler here in Deutschland. When I was just eight years old, I moved to Germany for the first time. From that moment, I always new that I would come back to this amazing country. Studying at Rollins, I somehow tripped and fell face first into the…

Dear Diary,   This is my last day here in Münster and it is very bitter sweet. I think of all the people I met in this past month, all the German I’ve spoken, and all of the experiences I’ve had and it makes me glad to have been apart of this program. Although with…

Dear diary,   One of the biggest things that has interested me is the cultural communication, here in Germany. Not only in speaking German, but also in what is considered ok to demonstrate or speak about. In the U.S. There are various rules about what can be advertised and demonstrated to the people. One of…
