UK: Up, Up, and Away

Today is the day. FINALLY. I am Scotland bound. Bring it on, bagpipes. I’m ready. First- let’s talk about packing. Some people will tell you that it’s “oh so easy” to pack 4-5 months of your life in 1 or 2 suitcases with a 50 pound limit each. These people can be put into two…

Easter Break: Headed to London

The Spring Break here in Switzerland is actually a week off for Easter. I’ve been going stir crazy, waiting for the break to come, especially after seeing pictures and stores from my friends at home during their break. It was worth the wait. I booked a trip with two of my neighbors and one of…

UK: Playing Catch-Up

Well, London here we are! Hard to believe I have been in this beautiful city for almost a month. It has been such a whirlwind of an adventure. My days have been busy, filled with school and exploring my new home. CAPA did such a wonderful job easing all of us into our schedules; they…

UK: I should be studying

Dang. I’m so over-due on a blahg post. I honestly couldn’t even remember what my last one was about until I just checked. That one was long. Ain’t no body got time for that, so I’ll spare you this time. It’s exam week(s). Yes. Exams extend for three long miserable weeks here. I keep telling…

UK: World Travelin’ Y’all

You know your life’s gettin’ a little too rowdy when your “reality check” is returning to your dorm room abroad in England—for the mere reason that it’s almost exam time and I do. not. want. to. study. Apologies for not blahgging in nearly 3 weeks, but my wifi has been super limited and that’s been…

UK: Ireland and Scotland Visit

Boring title. Sorry. Just gotta keep my travels straight n clear, ya heard? For whatever reason, I feel like there’s so much invested in this particular blahg post by you readers out there (I know I have at least SOME readers because you’ve been the ones telling me how anxious you are for this particular post)….

UK: It’s Art

Bear with me on this one, folks. I’m really trying to keep telling myself that when in Rome, ya gotta do as the Romans do. During the student government election party (which by the way is so intense compared to Ole Miss’s—believe that or not— 50 people are campaigning to win one of 6 spots…

United Kingdom: Skies of Blue, Clouds of White

What a wonderful world. The weather has been incredible. I had to share (even if it’s almost 1 a.m. here) because I am DESPERATE for it to stay a while. Maybe if I blahg about it, I’ll wish it into existence? Nah. So, take a lookie since I much prefer posting lots of pics on…

United Kingdom: Just LEEDing a normal life

Hello friends, family, strangers. Just thought it appropriate to fill you in on the average day here at my new school. Obvi these pics were not all taken in the same day, but I’ll walk you through the thrills that are my average weekday. Typically. This will probably be the most boring blahg ever, but…

United Kingdom: Willy Shakespy and friends

I’m no weather woman (although I did consider it for about a week once) but it looks like a dang blizzard outside. The snow is coming down so heavily and horizontally that I had to whip out my umbrella and carry it in front of me like a body shield. I’m so medieval. Figured it’d…

UK: Just dossin’ around

I know I’ve started every blahg entry until this one with “The one…,” but it’s getting to be a little awk—especially while I’m here and I’m imagining most titles will be stupid similar and confusing. So, RIP, “the one.” Ahhh, so I’ve been here for five snowy, snowy days now and it is just INCREDIBLE….

UK: The One from 30,000 Feet

I’m blahgging from my bed. In my new room. In Leeds, England. WAH! It’s on the mildy crazy side that I’m actually here. And that I made it alive— in one piece. With my sanity and all my luggage. I took notes during each flight (to make for the most accurate first England post) and…
