I don't know if anyone is interested, but I've started a blog of my study abroad in St. Pete. It's going well so far, I highly recommend that any Russian Studies kids traveling abroad in coming semesters consider it!
It's HERE, under "From Russia With Love" <---cheesy and cliche, I know, but deal with it.
I hope Stetson is having a good first semester! Make sure you all go see Lend Me A Tenor at Stover Theatre when it's on (even you Dr Denner), because it is a BRILLIANT show, I have a lot of EXTREMELY talented friends in it, and you will not regret it. It's the only thing right now that is making me regret being in Russia -that I can't be in Deland to be in/see Lend Me A Tenor. I'm serious, it's that good.
Ok, shameless plug over, check out the blog maybe,
Loves to you all!
