Well to make myself a little less stressed I decided to skip my blog about Granada.  I have uploaded pictures to Facebook and I will be more than happy to tell anyone the highlights of the trip - but since it wasn't anything really excited I am not going to dedicate a whole blog to Granada at this present moment.  Hopefully this will allow me to get back on track with my blogs - I don't want to feel like I am always behind in regards to blogging.

Well the midterms I have gotten back on I have done alright right now - I will not be posting my grades on my blog... sorry.  I am glad the midterms are over and I can relax a little bit and start to prepare for the next round of tests and enjoy studying abroad and traveling.  I have been having some mood swings the last couple of days or the last week and I think I figured out why.  I have been spending a lot of time with people (the same people) and I feel as though I have always been doing something - I haven't really had Toria Time and I need that sometimes to just relax and not do anything at all.  I am planning on taking it low key this week.  Hopefully get caught up in the random stuff I have to do, keep up with blogging, read a little, maybe even watch a movie or watch some TV.  I am leaving for Malaga on Friday morning at 7:30am by bus - it is about a six hour bus ride.  Malaga is located on the southern Spain - I want to go to the beach and relax - we are hoping we are going to have nice weather - the forecast says rain at the present moment but we are hoping that will change.  I will be going to Malaga with Lisa, Kara, and Colin - a group I haven't traveled with yet so it should be fun and exciting :)

I sent the final application for my internships at UWM for this summer - I sent it by email however they wanted a hard copy so I had to mail that today.  I also sent out some postcards so be looking at your mailboxes everyone - maybe if you are lucky you will have a postcard waiting for you in the near future.

My book I ordered off Amazon arrived today - it is for my history class.  Instead of having a second midterm in class we are doing a book review of some sort.  The book I have chosen to read is about the history of sugar in the Europe and America.  I have yet to get farther than the first three pages, because I am really sure what the book review is on or if I need to take notes as I am reading the book so I am waiting to hear back from my professor before I dive into the book.

Today I was reading to rant/vent about my life and I knew I couldn't do it on my blog so I decided to write a nice two page single spaced message Kelsey True - it helped so much! Thanks again girl!! I love you!!

Well I believe that is all for today - I had a presentation in my EAS with Zack and it went well.  Nothing to worry about there.  I hope everyone had a good weekend and I want to talk to all very soon! I miss you all!! Oh I learned that daylight savings is different in the US and in Spain so I think for about 13 days most of your will only be 6 hours behind me instead of 7! Get excited.  Also tonight at dinner we had great conversation - I asked question on how to say different words in Spanish and about culture things - but I don't remember a lot of the words :/  I also taught Gloria want jimmies and a bubbler are.  Good dinner conversation for sure.  That is all for sure now.

Paz y Amor.  God Bless.


  1. Hey,
    I'm a prospective student and am wondering about the cost. How much does it cost to take a bus to and from these costal towns?

  2. Hello,

    It honestly depends on what city you want to go to, what weekend you pick and what time you want to leave. But for somewhere like Granada I believe I paid about 40euros round trip. It is a good estimate to believe you are going to pay around 40euros for the bus - it might be less though! Let me know if you have any more questions!!
