Sometimes You Should Talk to Strangers (Within Reason) Because they Will Buy You/Give You Free Stuff:

As I’m currently riding back into London from Stanstead airport after a weekend in Ireland I can’t help but think how blessed I am. My passport is half full of visas from countries I’ve travelled to that a lot of people in America can only dream of. Ireland is officially my second favorite place after London. It was beautiful. They really mean Emerald Isle. Everything … Continue reading Sometimes You Should Talk to Strangers (Within Reason) Because they Will Buy You/Give You Free Stuff:

I HAVE MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT SOCIETY TODAY LIKE MOST OTHER DAYS

1. Kim and Kanye on the Vogue cover. WHY. I refuse to buy it. 2. Kate Upton as the new face for Bobbi Brown. Awful, sports illustrated does not equal high fashion. 3. The London Aquarium. I went last week because I really like aquariums. It was supposed to be 12 pounds with a student discount after 3 pm. Apparently this is only online and … Continue reading I HAVE MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT SOCIETY TODAY LIKE MOST OTHER DAYS

The Reason I’m Bad at Living in a City is Because I Hate People

It’s only appropriate that my last post was called “An American Girl in Paris Part Une” (stolen straight from Sex and the City in case you didn’t realize) because I am luckily going back to Paris! Let’s backtrack a little bit though. My last class is April 3. That means I only have two weeks left of classes. I am here until May 24th though. … Continue reading The Reason I’m Bad at Living in a City is Because I Hate People

The Story of How I Almost Met Ron Weasley and Other Things That Happened This Week

Last Thursday, I took myself on a date to the London Zoo and went on an actual date to the cinema to see Twelve Years a Slave. Friday I went to a place called the Breakfast Club. It’s supposed to be really famous but it wasn’t that good. I think it’s probably a bit overrated. This weekend was pretty low key, Friday I only went … Continue reading The Story of How I Almost Met Ron Weasley and Other Things That Happened This Week

Daily Thoughts I Have on the Tube and Other Mundane London Activities

I’m not going to say that this week has been particulary eventful, because in all truth, it wasn’t. Last week was our first week of classes. On Mondays, I have London in the Victorian Age. That, as well as my class on Wednesdays (London, the Past in the Present; a history through museums) are taught by the same professor and it’s a study abroad class. … Continue reading Daily Thoughts I Have on the Tube and Other Mundane London Activities

Laundry Costs $7.57 For One Wash Cycle and Other London Woes

So, let me first start off this by saying that I love London. I love the city, the architecture, the history and more. But, there are obviously things I really don’t like and I miss from America and I know I’ve been complaining a lot to everyone so I’m sorry and I really do love it here and will complain a lot less when I … Continue reading Laundry Costs $7.57 For One Wash Cycle and Other London Woes

Tourism At Its Finest

So today, Katie Sarah and I decided to be tourists and go see the Natural Museum of History upon recommendation. I now understand why there are so many people at all the tourist attractions! London is expensive man, but luckily most of the museums are free. The museum was pretty cool, and very old. The architecture was very beautiful. There were far too many children … Continue reading Tourism At Its Finest
