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.

First Things First

About two weeks ago, my study-abroad adventure @Hobart and William Smith Colleges, located in Geneva, NY, took off. Geneva is located at the deepest of the Finger Lakes, the Seneca Lake.  My journey was off to a rocky start. After spending some time in NYC beforehand, we wanted to take a Greyhound bus to Geneva. Since our bus from NYC was delayed, we missed our connecting bus in Binghamton. We, my companions an I, were left with a decision: wait 5 hours for the next bus to Geneva, or take an uber. We decided in favor of the latter.

Settling In

It’s been an interesting couple of first days for me. After spending a week rather off the usual touristic places in NYC (my highlights: thrift shopping in Brooklyn and exploring freezing-cold and almost completely abandoned Coney Island) I have finally arrived in Geneva, NY — the place I will call home for the next 4 months or so. The journey upstate was exhausting and frustrating. The bus from NYC was delayed 1.5h, which meant that we missed the connecting bus in Binghamton, NY.
