Some call it the “City of Love” and I suppose that’s fittest place for me to go. After four semesters of writing Love Letters, I’m off to Paris to study abroad, which will, of course, result in a lapse of my writing for a time. While I hope to come back with knowledge that only

Whether you’re a wholehearted flag-waver or a casual fan of gymnastics, basketball or rowing with little patriotism, there’s a good chance you pay some kind of attention to your TV every four years when the summer Olympics
