Prior Knowledge


Hey there- I’m Mel!

2015 was a year of big changes, but I’m really looking forward to diving head first into 2016. In the past 6 months-ish, I graduated from Syracuse University (bittersweet) and started a real-life, grown-up job in Boston (very sweet). In the next 6 months-ish, I’m going to move into my first real-life, grown-up apartment, and stick to my only New Year’s Resolution: DO MORE. Do more traveling, do more art, do more laughing… you get the idea.

In my spare time I enjoy doing anything that’s active, preferably outside. I’m always up for a day spent hiking, kayaking, biking, or anything promising an adrenaline rush. I love visiting antique stores and flea markets, coffee around a campfire, cold blueberry beer in the summertime, solving (or trying to solve) puns and riddles, and cute puppies (of course).

I love surrounding myself with interesting people, inspiring places, and entertaining things, so here’s to more of all that and the above in 2016.

  1. Hey, wanted to give you a shoutout that I love your passion and what you’re doing. Your writing is entertaining and useful. It’s always pleasant to find other students putting in the most effort they can into what they love.

  2. I will take the fact that you actually went to Granada and LOVED it, and are LIVING in Spain as time well spent in class when everyone knew they could get me to forego a grammar lesson to tell you all about my home away from home…..I am LOVING your blog–and SO JEALOUS of your beautiful adventures!

    • You were my favorite Spanish teacher and a huge inspiration for me to study abroad! I’m so happy you are loving my blog. Let’s catch up when I am home in December, I will definitely want to talk in Spanish and about Spain 🙂

  3. So pleased you enjoyed ‘mi pueblo’ (London) and also Spain, where I also now live and work. I wonder if you’d like a complimentary copy of my memories from teaching in España. The blurb is here: let me know and I’ll send you a no obligation Amazon voucher. All I’ll need is your email and preferred currency.
    Un saludo,
    Jeremy Dean
