It's been a long couple of weeks. I haven't had much to say and haven't been wanting to think about the news. I'm currently a bachelorette living in this big apartment since my roommate went to Australia for two weeks. I've got a lot of school work to do and a lot of work work... Continue Reading →

It now involves driving through a few kilometers of the West Bank; I can hear some of you cursing me out while some of you are cheering me on. I'll choose to ignore both reactions for now.
