Week Two in Greece

Our second week was spent exploring a few of Greece’s most beautiful islands! We took a night ferry from Athens to Santorini where we rode donkey’s, enjoyed a black sand beach, and hiked into a volcano crater. Santorini’s views were undeniably amazing and the group enjoyed evening dinners while appreciating the beautiful sunsets.

After two nights in Santorini the group traveled to the island of Ios. Our hotel here was right on the beach and everyone had a good time floating in the water and playing volleyball in the sand. Some of the girls even rode a banana boat in the Ios bay one afternoon! Nights in Ios were definitely the most interesting of all the islands and everyone enjoyed our nights out to some extent.

Our next stop was the island of Paros. In Paros we stayed much closer to the main village area than we had in Santorini or Ios. We spent our free time here laying on the beach, catching up on academics, or even riding ATV’s around the island.

I’m sure everyone would agree that our trip to the islands will be a real highlight of our study abroad program.

Although the islands were a lot of fun we continued to be academic while on our excursion as well. Each night we held seminars where a small group of students presented a synopsis and lead a discussion of a section of our assigned readings. Some of the topics we explored were Plato’s allegory of the cave, the influence of PR and celebrity on our perception of self, individuality, absolute truths, and how competition relates to validation of self in our modern society. We will be spending our third week in Athens and working on inviting community leaders to our seminar and researching for our independent research projects.

Enjoy some pictures of our recent excursion to the islands!

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

"Can a Muslim have more than one wife?"

The religion of Islam was revealed for all societies and all times and so accommodates widely differing social requirements. Circumstances may warrant the taking of another wife but the right is granted, according to the Quran, only on condition that the husband is scrupulously fair.
