So, I had a really relaxing summer. I spent a month remembering why I love Ohio, another month with some of the best co-workers anyone could ever ask for (not pictured sorry!), and a weekend in Palmyra, New York.
So I spent a month of my summer working for Kent State’s Foreign Language Academy in the Russian program. It was tough work, but also rewarding.

As I said earlier, it was incredibly stressful, but I was blessed to be working with some of the most amazing co-workers ever who kept me sane.
