The Thrill <3 Instagram


I’m back on the blog beat, but we’re marching to a new drummer.

I spent years studying photography, and now everyone can just pop some selective blur and a filter on their photos and hey wait okay this is kind of fun! Did you see how this looks with a border?? I have to post this and share it on my Twitter, too!

Here is a list of some of the of the most enticing and electric blogs from first-semester study-abroad experiences.

1. Ally Schmaling ’14’s In the Land of Fire: If you have missed Ally’s radiant Facebook photos and general Owl Creek-esque beauty, then y’all should spend some time on her study-abroad Tumblr where you can explore her life in Cork, Ireland through the eye of her camera. The photos are so stunning and inviting that before you know it you have wasted a hour of designated study time getting lost in Cork. Continue reading

Blogs on Blogs on Blogs: Volume IV

Admittedly, the weather here in Ohio has been so damned gorgeous that I almost couldn’t be bothered to go indoors during the daytime to write this post. Thankfully I managed to work it out, and I’ve found more friends who have also been indoors blogging (shout out to those of my friends who are also addicted to the internet)!!! Follow me after the jump for links and pictures.
