In case you were wondering: yes, I am as awkward on camera as I am in person. My final exam essay is due in less than 36 hours (yow), so of course that means I finally get around to putting something substantial on here for the first time in weeks. I bring you my first … Continue reading Live and In Colour
Selected photos of my weekend trip to Gothenburg, 8-10 November.
I recently traveled to Gothenburg, a city reminiscent of and yet so unlike Aarhus. Plus: giant cinnamon rolls. I know I've spoken before about being a meticulous planner of sorts, so a couple weeks ago when a friend from Asheville reminded me that he and his fiancé would be within the Scandinavian vicinity for a few … Continue reading Gone to Göteborg
Norwegian singer Emilie Nicolas and Danish noise pop band Lowly play at Aarhus's young venue, Radar, on 17 October. As promised, my favourite photos from the LOWLY/Emilie Nicolas show at Radar last Friday. I grew up around a lot of musicians in my hometown, and know how important it is to constantly be trying to … Continue reading Lowly and Emilie Nicolas

A look at one of my favourite hikes in Wales, first in 2012 and then again in 2014.
Between 7 and 16 October, I did a bit of traveling around Great Britain, and, once again, missed my flight out. Yesterday I finally made it back home to Aarhus! I haven't even been to the grocery store yet; as soon as I got in and had a shower, I headed off to an academic group … Continue reading British Holiday

Not to mention the innumerable little puns and plays on words and whatever that people come up with attached to that first expression. I have tried to attach a lot of meaning to a lot of things since I've been here. On … Continue reading Great Expectations
What does it mean to be a Mundusian? With a purpose largely centered around getting my head straight for this exam essay topic set yesterday and due over the weekend, here is another prolix post on some recent observations around the Mundus programme. I tend to over-think and over-analyse everything. Actually everything. I go into … Continue reading Stereotypes and Cultural Relativism: Nothing is Definitive
