The Daily Grind

As I’m writing this, my fourth week in the US is coming to an end and I’m slowly finding my rhythm. I want to use this post to write about it. First of all, studying in the US is very different from studying in Germany: It is more time-consuming. (At least that’s true for my studies (American Studies), I guess studying medicine for example is always very time-consuming.) During the regular semester in Leipzig, I would set foot in the library maybe three times per week to read or work on assignments. At HWS, however, the library has become my second home.

May I introduce to you, a close friend of mine, Hand Sanitizer

It’s that time of the year around here - flu season. To counter the flu, the Colleges offered free flu shots for everybody, which seemingly not everybody, including myself, took advantage of. Luckily, I did not get infected yet, but there’s lots of people not that fortunate. There’s advice everywhere on how often and in which way to wash your hands, and hand sanitizer everywhere.
