So I just decided to stay on board. My time on board the ship has had many moments that are reminiscent to those at Cottey, as community is a major aspect of life on deck.
I therefore wanted to sum up some of the travelling I have done during my semester. To say that I was excited is an understatement! We had originally planned on taking a taxi into town, but then we decided we would just walk to get away from everyone.
Here are some pictures from the day. When I was at school this fall, I was constantly reminded how much the students care for one another. We started off by first learning how to play the gankogui, which is the bell that sets the basic rhythm for percussion music.
So, now, I plan to make the most of the last couple weeks of my expedition, rather than mourning that it is nearly over. When I went, we hired a car for two days which was surprisingly cheap!!

"This semester has been an incredible. Thanks For An Incredible Semester, UD As I gear up to tear up saying goodbye to first semester, here are some things I am thankful for.
It has been a blast studying, crying, and learning with you, so thank you. Oh, and thanks for sitting next to me in class even when I drop all my books and make a scene.
I’m an embarrassing klutz, so. Here we are at Imperial College Business School’s Career Fair promoting the club and upcoming events! The next highlight of the MBA in my first semester has to be the cohort.
There has been no shortage of social events, birthday drinks, nights out, sports events, festivals and everything else in between. This will more than likely end at an end of semester transfer after the relationship has been tested for a month or two in college life.
So if you want to really enjoy your freshman year, make your own decisions and do what is best for you.
