So spring break has finally come and gone with it came two weeks of freedom. Well relative freedom. Admittedly, school has felt pretty open to begin with but I had no classes the last weeks which was quite welcomed. Anyway, I decided to spend the first week of my break in London, taking in the sights […]
This is something I’ve learned in the last few months: everyone has a safe place and in fact we all need safe places. Our safe places differ from person to person but they do have one unifying factor: it’s a place where you feel most at peace and at rest. Whether this place be real […]
So here I am. Three weeks in and so far so good. I’ve been making it to classes on time, going on day trips and excursions around England and just generally enjoying the moments that I encounter. There’s one thing that has definitely been very different from home. Church.
So it’s the beginning of my first official week by myself on this exchange. I’m settled into my room, hugged my mum goodbye for 5.5 months, met most of my house mates and had my first couple classes. It’s also the period of time that I’m the most nervous about. Why?
Okay so today is officially my last final exam for the fall semester. Like I’m done. Really completely done. I’m so happy. I just want a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked and my bed. I’m ready to sleep for a week.

This week, one of my very close friends has been going through a really tough time. She seems to be encountering one obstacle after another with no explanation whatsoever. As her friend, I want to do all I can to help her and support her in whatever way she needs. Why? Well cause that’s what friends […]
So I did this type of post a few weeks ago and I really liked how it turned out. There will always be songs and there will always be stories. I would simply love to be able to tell some of those here. Today, I’m highlighting a song from You+Me called Break the Cycle. I […]
So as I’ve established, the class that this blog started for is now over and now the blog is completely 100% what I want to write! Not that this wasn’t my blog before but the school related content won’t be around anymore. But this means that the responsibility for what happens is solely in my […]
Confession Time: (Pun Somewhat Intended) I started this journey with a very specific plan in mind: Start a personal website and grow a consistent and study audience — all within about 3-4 months. I have been taking this class that teaches about the publication of self and discusses how we present ourselves online. I was certain that by the end […]
