Don’t Break the Ice

Just as I was losing hope over having a snow filled winter season, Europe has been hit. It was only my second day being back, and I awoke to everything covered in a white blanket and frozen canals. It’s not often that the ice becomes thick enough for people to walk on, so to see ice skaters moving up and down the water ways has been a sight to behold. One of my professors gave us a little piece of advice about going out on the ice, “If you fall in, DON’T GO TOWARDS THE LIGHT.” (Supposedly the hole you should swim towards will appear black underwater.) The instant freeze has also coincided with my first week of classes this semester.

So far my class schedule consists of: 1) Art, Consensus, and Canon 2) Romantic Love Narratives 3) Identities in Culture and Images 4) Photography in Modern and Contempory Art and 5) Production of Culture.

With the whirlwind of changes not only in my life but also on the ground, I am so excited to get the chance to have another half year here in my new home!

About Tatiana

Hi. I'm Tatiana, a senior graduating in May 2013 with a major in Communication and minor in Art. I currently reside in Louisville, KY but I've spent much of my life growing up in Shelbyville Ky, Tampa, Florida and also Minnesota. I love to travel and embark on new adventures, and because of that I chose to spend my entire junior year in the Netherlands studying at the University of Amsterdam. I found great treasures that this wonderful metropolis has to offer, and discovered a case of wanderlust that I can't seem to shake. I will continue to travel and discover new cultures. Over the course of the year I'll be writing for Bellarmine Bloggers, journaling about my as a college student and a avid adventurer. In the future I aspire to jump into the world of advertising as well as pursue my love for photography, fashion, music, culture, and just creating. I hope that my travels will allow me to meet many inspiring people from a wealth of places so that I can truly broaden my horizons.
