The Day My Life Changed Forever

When I started college as an undergrad, there were a number of people who were certain I would quit. To this day I still have no idea why – it’s not because I’m a bad student, I actually enjoy academia. If I were to guess, I believe they always thought I would realize I didn’t need a degree as a performer and would drop out...

Culture & Cuisine | Brie en Croûte Recipe

Quite a while ago, La Marinière asked me what foods I prepare for picnics in response to a post I wrote on inexpensive date ideas. I promised her that I would write about it, and so today I’d like to share a recipe for one of my all-time favorite picnic foods. This recipe has become pretty popular amongst my family – my mom even made...

A Trek Through California Mountains

Southern California is home to several beautiful mountain ranges including the Saddleback Mountains and Mount Baldy. M and I decided to adventure through both at different times and I thought I would share some of the photos from our trek through the California Mountains.

An Introduction to the Eurodictionary

When my blog was over on WordPress.com, I had a section called the “Eurodictionary.” It’s moved here with the rest of my content to Eurolinguiste.com, but I have yet to write about what, exactly, the Eurodictionary is for those of you who have recently joined me. I live in a bilingual household and so there is a lot of code-switching that goes on (the shift...

Photos of Giant’s Ring in Northern Ireland Ireland

One of the great things about living in Europe is that you don’t have to travel too far from home to see some pretty amazing things. While living in Belfast, I went on a walk one afternoon with a few friends and we visited Giant’s Ring, a henge monument in Belfast. The monument is said to have been built 2700 BC during the Neolithic Period....

The 13th Warrior, Mythology, Film and Language

A while back, I re-read Edith Hamilton’s Mythology – a classic, of course. I’m actually quite glad that I read it again, finishing it exactly when I did because immediately after, by coincidence, I watched The 13th Warrior. Mythology had a brief introduction to Norse Mythology, and I had a better understanding of the characters in the movie as a result of reading the book...
