Back in Time in Lincoln

I feel so lucky every time I sit down to write a blog post about being in England. I really cannot say it enough. Back at the end of January, the entire school took a field trip to the historic town of Lincoln.  They split us into groups by last name, which meant the core…

Betty’s Cafe York, England

Before each school sponsored trip, they give us a briefing. The professor who gave this briefing loved York for it’s charm and gates and also for this cafe called  Betty’s that had “artery clotting scones with curdled cream and great tea.”  When we got to York, and found the cafe, the line was around the…

Yoking around in York

Waking up in England is still like waking up in a dream for me. I know that it has been almost a month now, but it still doesn’t seem real.  This past weekend, we layered up and set off for the town of York. It started off as a damp morning, but we fueled up…

Taking on London

When I first knew I wanted to go to England, I knew I had to visit London. It looked like such an amazing city, since we didn’t actually see any of the city other than when we flew over it, I was excited to finally be there. My screensaver on my camera has been a…

Mushy Thankful post

Thursday November 24th was Thanksgiving here in the United States, and while I got ready to greet all of the guests that would descend upon my home, I thought about what I was thankful for. As a lot of people do every year. I know I have been writing more list-posts than usual, but I…

Study Abroad Series: The Big Question

There’s always that one big question that comes up in the beginning, before applying to study abroad. And that’s why? Why should you study abroad,it’s going to cost a lot of money. You’re going to be away from, home for more than one week. So why should you, or anyone else look into it? Here’s…

Study Abroad Series: Goals

By now you would have read this post and you will have read that I am going to be studying abroad (I leave in 2 months!) and while there is a lot to do until the moment I step onto that airplane, I thought I would start a study abroad series, as I will be there…

Where Will Life Take You?

I’m not really sure how to start out this post. So sit back, grab a cup of your favorite warm beverage, (I’ll have a chai tea) your favorite snack, relax because it’s time for a little story. I promise it won’t be too long.  9 years ago in 2007 (yikes that’s a lot.) students in…
