Every semester there is that one class you hate and love at the same time. For me, professor Hamilton is usually the common denominator, representing such class on my schedule. His classes are very challenging yet fun and practical. Today, I would like to share my experience with the Communication in the Digital World course, which has been another terrific class, combining theoretical knowledge with practical skills. Besides all the interesting information about relationships in the digital world, communication theories, and the Internet, we have learned how to create a website from scratch. Usually for me, team-work projects are a[…]

The Peculiar Czech Easter

No matter how many times I describe how the Czechs celebrate Easter, the surprised face of Americans remains the same. Laughingly, I admit it does sound a bit barbarian. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I understand people’s astonishment. To me however, it is just another Czech tradition inherently embedded into my country’s history.

To continue my technology blog from last week, I have decided to reveal another lovely effect of technology combined with simply being gone from home.

It is almost like the old rumor about marriage I just made up, “the less spouses see each other the less they will drive each other crazy.” So much true in such a short statement, isn’t there? Nevertheless, let’s dive into depicting my beloved sister. I can describe her as a[…]

The Miraculous, Joy-Bringing, and Family-Bonding Technology

Being an international student, displaced from everything and everyone I love, taught me how lonely some days across the pond can be. Especially those days when everything seems to go wrong. I cannot imagine how hard these situations had to be ten or twenty years ago, when no technology, able to connect people around the globe instantly, was around. . . Fortunately for me, nowadays, we can reach our loved ones anytime in a blink of an eye. Although, from my personal experience, it is rather desired to text before calling because your sister could have, for example, just succeeded[…]

My Path to MNU

Last week, I wrote about the unique leadership that guides our Track&Field team. Today, I want to reveal some of the events of my track career that slowly but steadily paved my path for MNU. It all started 13 years ago, when my parents finally realized that soccer or any other team sport was not the right fit for me. Imagine a seven year old who never passes the ball to someone else and yells at his teammates for not passing the ball to him. YES! That was me. Consequently, my wise parents chose an individual sport for me, and[…]
