So I stayed in US during my Christmas break. My sister came over from Poland to visit me. We stayed couple days in Chicago , then came back to Purdue and after that went on a trip to NYC. We spent the Christmas day in my apartment on campus, I had my Brazilian friend staying over and my American roommate, so we had an international dinner 🙂 It was a big relief after waiting for the final results. Yes, the first semester ends before Christmas break, as well as the final exams. Luckily, I passed everything 🙂

It was an amazing experience, cos we used Couchsurfing everywhere we stayed. I highly recommend that way of traveling. We met local people who show us not only the tourist areas and attractions. 🙂 We stayed in Brooklyn. Visited most of the districts in Manhattan. My favorite one is Little Italy, all these Italian restaurants are just adorable. You can really feel like you moved to the Godfather movie.

New semester at Purdue started very rapidly, I didn’t even notice when. The only thing that I can complain about is the weather – it’s SO COLD in here! All the time around -15 degrees and the snow. I have enough…and the spring should come hmmm in April! That’s why I can’t wait for the spring break to go to some warm places.

Sorry for a long delay! It’s been a crazy time. 🙂

I have exams every week. Sounds scary, but if I focus during classes I don’t have to revise much. Ufff, love my memory!

Ok, so I can say that my life here is pretty much a good comedy 🙂 So many funny things happened that I sometimes wonder if it’s even real.
I’ve also joined the Western Horse Riding Team. I had to dress like a real cowboy and actually ride a horse in a show. I managed not to fall off, so I felt like a winner. haha The funny things happen also in the Vet Hospital. Most recently I was walking a dog from a medical ward to the examination room and he managed to escape…yes, I had to chase him through all of these corridors and everyone was looking at me. So embarrassing!! hahah  Continue reading

So after 2 weeks I can say that I’ve already fallen in love with this place.

School: The University campus is huge, literally huge. It takes about half an hour to walk through the whole place. The main building is called Purdue Memorial Union – these is the place where you can take some rest, get food, coffee, play pool and go bowling. There are many computer labs and libraries in different buildings. The most exciting place for me is the Sport’s center – it’s gigantic and everything there is new. Continue reading
