1. As I struggle to say goodbye to this beautiful country, I keep reminding myself of the priceless memories that have been made here. I came here with a group of people who I called friends, and I am leaving with a group of people who have become a family. Something interesting happens when you spend two intense weeks with the same people. You develop bonds that can not be expressed with words. The sights you saw and the experiences you had together form the glue that will hold you together forever. We may not all go back home and keep in touch with every one, and that isn’t what matters. What matters is that we had this brief moment in time to share, we experienced something beautiful, and no one can take that away from us.

  7. Students gave presentations on their research and had class discussions about what they learned from Greek activists during the trip. These sessions usually happened in casual spaces like parks and cafes. Their research topics ranged from the LGBT rights movement in Greece to a look at queer-identified Greek gods. We will post summaries of their findings soon!

  8. "Live as if this is all there is."

    A few of my favorite moments from this trip have been the ones I spent alone. I have made an effort to take time to take everything in, and I can’t believe I have to leave in a few days. I won’t be able to see the world in the same way anymore, and I can honestly say that every change made has been a good one. I am more comfortable with myself and the world around me, and I realized while standing on the deck and watching the sunrise that I’m officially ready to come out.

    I also realized that I’m fully capable of being on my own. You see, preparing for a study abroad trip and finding your way when you get there is a lot like preparing to come out to your family. You prepare for what could go wrong, then things do and will go wrong - but somehow, you manage to get through it. And I will.

    I’ve always imagined that I would live my life as a man who helps people in his line of work, travels, and has a lot of good people around him. I never actually thought it could be my life, but it will be some day.

    I’ve never felt more ready.

  9. We fight sleep for ambitious as we try to absorb as much as possible into the spaces in our mind we have chosen to leave open for knowledge. The crashing of the Aegean Sea against sun kissed sand erasing footprints as we create new ones in this cycle of change on this beautiful journey. Yesterday was a time of reflection as the collision of waves echoed into our ears. Looking at this photo is a reminder of all the beauty the world has to offer.
