Last winter, I studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina for a little over a month. While I was there, I explored the city, the rest of Argentina, and parts of Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay — and blogged the whole time I was there. My trip to Argentina was life-changing, and not in the way that most kids talk about their study abroad experiences. After returning to the States, I decided to transfer universities. I just finished my first year at Boston University, and although I sometimes regret leaving the University of Delaware, I am so happy to be living in a city.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be re-blogging some of my posts from my trip to Argentina last year, as well as some new pictures that I haven’t put up.
Some people can get a thrill
knitting sweaters and sitting still.
That’s okay for some people
who don’t know they’re alive.
Some people can thrive and bloom
living life in the living room.
That’s perfect for some people
of one hundred and five.
But I at least gotta try—
when I think of all the sights that I gotta see
and all the places I gotta play,
all the things that I gotta be at.
