Jul 13

Hey Everyone! My uni schedule works out that I have no class on Tuesdays! In order to take as much advantage of my time here in Melbourne, I’ve dubbed these days, Touring Tuesdays. (Actually my host Mum came up with that one!-Thanks.) Naturally, I decided to do the most tourist-y thing of all which is […]

“How are you?” “How are you doing?” “How’s it going?” These questions sound familiar and are an appropriate way to greet someone and inquire about their well-being and current affairs. In America that is. Not in Australia, (or should I say “straya,”) where words are always shortened, intonation does not necessarily  indicate meaning and people […]

International Student Orientation Trip

Posted in Australia...AUSome! Study Abroad, Comments Off on International Student Orientation Trip

As an international student, my Australian University offers a three day beach trip before the semester. It was simply sublime!

It’s really cool that I am in Melbourne. I love it. I’m currently getting over jetlag, but you can expect more fun and exciting things from me, like starting Uni– which if you don’t know- stands for university, or simply, school. Enjoy, Lilach (or as I have been nicknamed, Lil! rhymes with Bill.) 11

I can’t believe it’s in five days! In just five days I’ll be going to Australia for a four-month study-abroad adventure. And I can’t help but be excited about the silliest things and nervous about the least consequential things as well. Like seeing the international terminal in JFK that I’ve never been to and who […]

I made a friend…on the INTERNET!

Posted in An Hour In A Minute, Australia...AUSome! Study Abroad, Comments Off on I made a friend…on the INTERNET!

I made a friend! If you’d have asked me what was the least likely of all places for me to make a friend, I’d give youtube as my answer. But I did! After being a slow and hardly-steady stream of videos I’d post on my channel on youtube, AnHourInAMinuteLG, I finally decided to be proactive […]
