VIETNAM | Wed, 27 Jan 2016 | By finally | Photo Gallery

NHA TRANG We finally made it to Nha Trang by 12h night bus from Saigon. Nha Trang is the Russian version of Miami! Tons of tall hotels lining a very long beach. Menus are sometimes only in Russian and Vietnamese, even not in English; unbelievable! We ... Read more >

I'm Getting Better at This!

FRANCE | Wed, 11 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [378]

In Integration, we learned a few more theorems about integrals and sequences of functions (such as Borel-Canelli Lemma and Fatou’s lemma) and defined negligible sets (having a measure of zero) and properties that are true almost everywhere (true ... Read more >

Is it the middle of the semester already? Because that would explain the midterms.

FRANCE | Wed, 4 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [377]

Intégration was dedicated to proving the Monotone Convergence Theorem. The previous week, he’d given us a statement of the theorem, but said we didn’t have the time to prove it just then. But, with the entirety of a two hour class ... Read more >

Tests and Reviews

FRANCE | Tue, 20 Oct 2015 | By kakimono | Views [380]

In Integration, we started looking at integrals. On the first day of class, the CM professor had explained that the point of the class was not to teach us to integrate better. Which is good, because if that had been the point, spending five weeks without ... Read more >

I'm still taking classes.

FRANCE | Sat, 10 Oct 2015 | By kakimono | Views [411]

If anyone has been quietly thinking to themselves “why is she always talking about classes? I didn’t know she actually intended to study abroad,” worry no longer. As of this week, description of what’s going on in my classes ... Read more >

And on Wednesdays I question my sanity

USA | Sat, 26 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [312]

I'd succeeded in changing my TD section, though it didn't feel like a terribly dramatic change. It was the same day of the week, same time, same building, and even the same floor. Basically, everything was the same except that the professor was different ... Read more >

FRANCE | Sat, 19 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [280]

You'd think that, after one week of classes, I'd have enough familiarity with my schedule to be able to match names to numbers. Certainly, when I'm looking up the classrooms for the TDs, I'd pay accurate attention to which class I'm going to be going ... Read more >

 Whereas Friday was full of Americans, Saturday was not. I was running out shampoo and conditioner, so I decided that I should go get some more. Since shopping by myself in the Mdina was still a frightening prospect (so much noise and so many ... Read more >

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Fri, 15 May 2009 | By hpmoon | Views [383] | Video

During the Orthodox Holy Week in 2009, I took a spontaneous pilgrimage of sorts to Russia. Moscow now is an extraordinary place to visit, so soon after the fall of the Soviet Union. Her dramatic renewal of religious expression awkwardly mingles ... Read more >
