It’s the Little Things
We all have our favorite shower stall. We also all have the same toilet we want. Communal dorms are a special experience for sure but that doesn’t mean it can’t be amusing! For the record, the best sink is the one on the far left (the one on the right is a little loose), the shower that gets the best heat and water pressure is the third one from the left, and the cleanest toilet always seems to be the third one down. The only thing about that toilet is that the toilet paper holder fell down on me once. Oops. It’s a give and take, right? Right.
That Food Though!
Oakland, California sure does know how to cook some food! As I mentioned before, my spring break included an immersion trip to Oakland, CA conducted by the Ignatian Center at Santa Clara University. It was more than an amazing time it showed me, yet another lens in which people view what is right and what is going wrong in our world today. And just to make the trip that much better, we were exposed to some outstanding food from all different cultures. And don’t get me started on the ice cream. That was fantastic.
