Hey you. Yeah, I’m talking to you. You’re in a foreign land, immersing yourself in a new place and learning about super rad cultures legally buying alcohol as a twenty-year-old. And we want to know about it. Besides that, we just really miss you, and we know you miss bragging to us about how cool your life is. So basically–send us your study-abroad blogs abrogs right now. We’ll show you off and make sure the entire Wesleyan community jealous of you.

If you’re documenting your abroad experiences on a blog of any kind (i.e. WordPress, Blogspot, Twitter, Tumblr, Flicker, Instagram), we want to know about it. Fill our inbox (staff[at]wesleying[dot]org) with links to your blog and we’ll showcase you on Wesleying! Make sure the subject of your email is “ABROAD BLOG,” and don’t forget to write a bit about what you’re doing this fall. You rock!

I’m a junior at Wesleyan University, CT currently studying abroad in Denmark, thus the recurring Denmark-ey theme in this here blog. I’m actually from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which makes me being on this American-centric DIS program a little more curious. I’m skinny, nondescript, and relatively harmless (unless if found without caffeine).

—- Wesleyan Interfaith Justice League: Obviously breaking from the “Wes person goes abroad, decides to write about it” theme, this is a new blog for the Interfaith Justice League (who recently brought you the Fast-A-Thon). Carmen Yip ’12 writes:
