Yesterday’s date was August 1st which means I’ve been here for a month! How amazingly exciting is that! I had two distinct thoughts yesterday because of this significant “monthversary” 1. I proudly realize just how adaptive I could be. I love Melbourne as much as, if not more so, than I expected I would. Like I […]

In my previous “episode” of My AUSome Adventure” I discussed the different public transportation options in Melbourne. For me to get to Uni every day, I have to ride two trams. It’s a near hour commute each way and the way I’ve spent that hour has evolved from week 1 to now, in week 3. […]

Turns out that one of the things I’m really enjoying about Melbourne is how creative, expressive and colorful the architecture is. Just walking around the  city, I’ve been able to capture some beautiful buildings and wondering just what was going through the designer’s mind while picking colors, angles and materials for their buildings. When I […]

So what does one do on the last day in their home town of BK before leaving for 4 months?!? Go to the apple store of course! I had a surprisingly emotional time walking through manhattan with my Mom and Dad, realizing that I will not be seeing the exciting hustle and bustle of trying […]

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’ve been meaning to make a day-trip out to the Guggenheim museum for a while now. Given the vacation days (and my oft-professed love of all things Manhattan) my parents and I made our way to the beautiful building. We didn’t know what to expect in the way of what type of art would be […]

Grand Station Terminal Tour (FREE!!!)

Posted in Family Fun!, Observations->Philosophical Thoughts, Comments Off on Grand Station Terminal Tour (FREE!!!)

“What to do in NYC for free?” has seen the white of my google search bar. Even without a clear destination, my family and I love riding the train into the city and seeing all the tall buildings towering above our heads and into the blue sky. Just walking around and seeing the multitudes of […]

My First… Conference!

Posted in Observations->Philosophical Thoughts, Uncategorized, Comments Off on My First… Conference!

This past Friday, I presented the project I am assisting with that is studying Emergent Literacy in Bilingual Hebrew/English Preschoolers in the Cuny Graduate Center. The Student Research Poster Day in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences was so enlightening; I enjoyed hearing other students and professors present their research and I got a sense of the scope that […]

As part of being a JFEW Scholar, I went to the JFEW Spring Retreat today in the Thirteen Studio at Lincoln Center. It was a real treat! I enjoyed hearing all the guest speakers and was happy to see the scholars from the other campuses again. Starting off the day with Michelle Ward’s coaching served […]

End the year with a blast of WINTER!

To some, the snow is a lousy nuisance, and to some it is joy in its whitest form. It’s all in how you look at things.

My dream is coming true!!!

“We are the dreamers of dreams, and we are the makers of music” ~ Willy Wonka. Hey, so I hope you like this “mural” that I painted on my wall. It has always been one of my favorite quotes about taking your life into your own hands and dreaming up your own dreams. I feel […]

Seems to me that planning to study abroad has led me to seriously consider studying domestically (see previous post about this concept). I want to take advantage of everything New York has to offer, as if I were a real tourist/exchange student. In other news, my spin-jump is broken. Enjoy, Lilach 6
