2nd time in Europe I’ve paid to conquer my ultimate phobia. For anyone that doesn’t know me, I’m terrified beyond words of heights. In high school I wouldn’t walk along the outside railing of the 1 level staircase because I was so afraid of falling. It’s totally irrational, but it is what it is. Today I went to the top of the freakin’ Eiffel Tower, y’all. This is such a big deal and I’m really proud of muh self.
Yay for not letting fear run your life!
It’s always kinda weird being in the most romantic cities in the world like Venice & Paris without your boo thang. Last time my mom was with me & now I’m with my best friend, but that isn’t the same as holding hands with the person you love in the greatest city on earth. I’ve shared these wonderful places with Mom & Andy so now I just have to come alone & with my man. I should be living in Germany around 2016-2017 so it’ll be easy to go to Rome, Florence, Paris, wherever I want. Now THAT’S exciting.
Life is unfolding before me and I’m grabbing it with both hands. Dr. Broder told me I had great potential after we discussed my plans last night & offered to be an academic reference on my internship paperwork & grad school apps. This trip is awesome, these people are awesome, my life is awesome.
Luckiest girl ever.
I give everything to other people and nobody ever… I never.. I don’t get what I want!

So many things are changing for me & it’s such a fantastic feeling. Europe again is the best thing to happen to me at this point in my life.
In the last 5 days my eyes have been opened, my world broadened, & my heart ached with the burden of a massacre of over 6 million people. Studying the Holocaust in Europe, in countries that were forever scarred by it, is an experience for which there are no words.
“It is not a Jewish problem, it is not a German problem, it is a human problem.”
