Curiouser and Curiouser.

Well, I'm actually here now.  For realseis. this time


Or, as my muse Alice would say, "Curiouser and Curiouser."

I've been waiting the past year and half to be here, and now I actually am.  IT'S SO CRAZY. Unreal, even.

Portantorchas is absolutley beautiful.  I'm so excited to share some of the pictures I took of the campus....they're purely to show how frickin' GORGEOUS it is here...not so much to showcase my artsyness. :)  So, take a look at my new home!

 Looking good.

 This is where our classes are held.

 And THAT is the view I get to see everyday.  Everday.

MUSIC TO LISTEN TO: She Got Dressed Up by the Fleet Foxes, a current favorite of mine. It's ever so catchy :) Below is the link. You should click on it.

To my darling friend Jenn Fry, I love you more than I knew!  I'm so sad I'll miss the midnight premire of Harry Potter with you.  :( To my most favorite big sister, thank you so much for coming all the way down to Costa Rica to make sure I made it alive.  Love you all!

Peace and Blessings,



  1. Wow Kelsey, I love your pictures. I'm so happy your dreams are coming true. Your room lots great and your morning view looks awsome. We probably can't skype wtomorrow because dad and I won't be home. Grandma Horst bday is so we're getting together. Daddy and I went today to get our passport stuff done yea!!!!!!! We love you baby girl, Have fun speaking spanish. Talk to you soon

  2. Kelsey!! I miss you sooo much! It looks like you are in for a REAL adventure, not just the wonderland kind:)
    And I think you took all those pictures to make the rest of us who are stuck in the snow, jealous!
    I too am sad about HP, BUT Lauren is going to come along! She has been watching the movies, but I'll work on getting her to read the books too!
    I am thrilled to see I made it into your blog AND I saw you hung the picture of us up:)
    I am also super excited that you are still able to share your taste in music with me! Surprisingly, I miss having you make me listen to your crazy new bands:)
    Glad you made it down safely! Love and miss you!

  3. Kelso,
    I wrote to you on Facebook earlier, but decided that it was time that I joined and read your blog. Being me, I read this one first, and then decided I needed to go back and read the first ones. Needless to say, all the pictures are beautiful and it looks, and sounds, like you're in for an amazing year. Also, I've been holding it together, but reading the Shing Light shout out made me miss you tons. As I said on Facebook, I miss you, and love you, and hope that you are having TONS and TONS of fun.
    By the way, I watched the fat kid on a rollercoaster video, and nearly peed my pants out of laughter. JANICE. JANICE IT HURTS. :)

  4. Hey Kels,
    It's a sleety, cold, dreary day here ~ enjoy your sunny south for me! School was canceled today, we'll see what happens tomorrow a.m. with our cold overnight temps. Lys made cinnamon rolls, yum! I know she'd share with you if you came through our door today.

    Just wanted to let you know I'm praying for you and wishing God's anointing on your study brain and new relationships. Love ya ...
