Greetings! My name is Emily. I have just completed my freshman year at the University of Michigan. No, I don't have a major, but yes, I have ideas as to what I would like it to be. I am currently hooked on linguistics.
While at school this year, I decided it was time to "live a little". I applied for an internship abroad. About a month and a half ago I received news that I will be interning at Girisim Factoring in Istanbul, Turkey between June 7 and August 15. Wowsers. 2 weeks till my departure date. Again, wowsers.
I decided to write a blog not only to document my time abroad but to reflect upon my personal growth while experiencing a new culture. I plan on writing about work, traveling, and my reactions from life abroad. I also plan on posting pictures to accompany entries.
Even though I am writing the blog, I would really enjoy it if you participated as well :). I accept comments! Yipee! I have set-up guidelines so things will run as smoothly as possible.
1. Comments are a definite yes
2. Grammatical feedback is a definite no-no. I know that I am not the best speler.
3. I LOVE questions. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about anything you read (if something is confusing because of grammatical errors, I will do my best to clarify - this is the ONLY exception to #2!).
