Let me just start off by saying all of you looked AMAZING at formal, and that scrolling through your 800 photos and snapchats made me miss all of you so much!
I officially have only one month left in Sevilla, Spain. I’m struggling with how fast the first 3 months flew by, but it has everything to do with how many amazing experiences were packed into them. April was especially fun because Brother Jordan Johnson and I (shout out to my roomie abroad) both had our families visit. They took us to Morocco and Portugal, and brought a little taste of home (literally Cheetohs, Chick-fil-a sauce and Ranch). We also got to celebrate Feria in Sevilla, which by far is the classiest, most unique carnival I have ever been to. It was a week-long celebration of wearing Flamenco dresses, dancing in fancy tents called Casetas, and drinking rebujitos. Taking part in it made me appreciate Sevilla’s energy and culture and overall, it made me feel more a part of the city I now call Home.
When I was deciding where to study abroad, a main reason I picked Europe over South America was to have the opportunity to meet up with Brothers. I am forever glad I made this decision because one of my favorite parts about Sevilla is the amount of Brothers I was able to share it with. I’ve now visited Alcazar enough times to make me broke, but getting to be a tourist in my own city again is worth it.
I can’t wait to see what this next month brings! I also can’t wait to see all of you soon and to meet many of you in the Fall. Seniors, congrats on graduating and please don’t be strangers next year!
