I talked to Amy, a fellow fiver1, about Hungary the other day. She did a study abroad there a couple years ago, so I though she’d be someone good to talk to. She was.

Here are my notes on Hungary. Specifically, Budapest:

  1. 5th year graduating senior 

  2. exhibits related to the fascist and communist dictatorial regimes in 20th century Hungary 

Everyone I know is Studying Abroad!

Not everyone. But a lot.

Jeff Staples is in El Salvador. Charlie Wyman is in Ecuador. Amelie Mabbutt and Hannah Bellinger are in Spain (although not with the same group…as far as I know). Julia Masnik and David Clausen are in London (together). Jessen Myburgh is in Greece. Alison White is in New Zealand. Katherine Staples is at St. Andrew’s in Scotland. Katie Shaiman is in Edinburgh, Scotland. Matthew Knowles was in France. Amy Dubetz is in Budapest. Amy Beck is in Buenos Aires. Lindsay Hansberry is in Europe.

There could be others, but I’m done looking through Facebook, for now, trying to figure out where everyone is. The point still stands though: A crap ton of people I know are not in the United States (or Canada or Mexico) right now.

Mesa Schumacher is in Peru. Kelly Nolan is Florence.

Next school year, Brittany Linton is going to Japan and Devan O is going to London.

Update II:
Lauren Rubinfeld is in Sydney, Australia.

Update III:
Dan Lecocq is in Japan!

Air Conditioning At Last!

Ben and I helped Laura L. and Amy Dubetz move in to their new apartment, which was air conditioned. Soooo nice. Ryan Thompson [thefacebook] and Kevin Reynolds [thefacebook] and we all got pizza, which was good. Links here and here.

After we helped, and ate, and then just sat around, Ben and I headed over to Target so Ben could get a new watch. We walked around the mall for a while because our house was still being fumigated for bugs so we couldn’t go back quite yet. I gave him my little rant on copyrights, trademarks, and patents.
