My Moral Hazard

"Your best bet may be to just go uninsured." I sat in disbelief. Is this really what it had come to? I thanked the insurance salesman and pressed “End” on the Skype call.  He had just informed me that it will take three months to get me onto Medicaid or ... read more

London or Nothing

It's crunch-time. The perverbial period of overly caffinated, underly rested students, but all I can think about is London. To be on the Tower Bridge again. In Picadilly Circus. To be anywhere but here. I would pay anything. Ironically, that seems to be the only thing possibly preventing my London adventure ... read more

Why Am I Studying Abroad?

  Foreign exchange students always fascinated me, and it wasn’t just the accent. It was because they contained something I didn’t—a courage and independence that allowed them to do something that I knew I never could—cross an ocean and land in the unknown to study abroad.   But as we ... read more

American, Bro

 Lately I've been doing a little experiment. Not for money or any actual scientific data, just curiosity. After my year in New Zealand I've contracted a nameless rare disease which renders me incapable of calling people anything else except "Bro." Pushing myself past the borders of the small island nation ... read more

California Dreamin'

 Mark Twain allegedly once said, ‘The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer at San Francisco.’ An overstatement, perhaps, but two months of living in the Bay Area was certainly enough for me to declare that it was my coldest summer ever.  I was on a six-week study exchange ... read more

Pondering the Rabbit Hole

If Alice knew there was a destination beyond the rabbit hole, would she have been more curious? Or would she have been extra cautious not to fall in?     In forty four hours, I will be waking up in Chicago. My bleary eyes will scope out the room I'm ... read more

Wrapping up DC

After spending a casual Friday on the 23rd wrapping up a paper for Foreign Policy, putting on some fun clothes to apparently go nowhere, and passing along some of my limited Latin dance knowledge on to Tschuna (keep practicing! :D), the last weekend to finish up the DC checklist had ... read more

JAPAN: T-Minus 11 Days

So I've never lived outside the country. Going to Cabo San Lucas is the extent of my travels outside the US (the little tail that both Mexico and California share). I was about six or seven, chubby and (obviously) well mothered when my family took a trip there and indulged ... read more

The Sky Is Falling

Yesterday August 15th 2010, I took a skydiving brigade to Middletown, OH to lose their skydiving virginity.  But do my dismay Mother Nature was bipolar as ever.  So only a handful of people dove, while the rest of us – apparently backed out.  Here’s the scoop on Cincinnati weather: After ... read more

Predeparture PT 1

Getting Around

Save money on the New York subway

For those who frequent the City, and by City I mean New York City of course, the subway is a convenient and quaint way to get around, avoiding shrouds of tourists AND the cold. However, that hefty $2.75 per ride isn't exactly the cheapest price, and you never know exactly how many times you'll be popping in and out of the train. Clairebear's tip of the day: Buy a one day fun pass! For $8.25 you can ride the subway up and down both ways as many times as your heart desires. At least four rides will make it worth it and because there's just so much to see, you'll be surprised at how many times you will need to use it!
