I could write for hours on end and still not successfully convey the profound impact that studying abroad this summer has had upon me. Thank you, Cambridge, for the best five weeks of my life. I miss you already. My brief but wonderful stay in Europe has taught me to (as cliche as it may … Continue reading Reflections (In the Cam River)
I've never been so exhausted. Sami and I travelled about 17 hours in total to finally reach our home destination: our little suburb of Weston, Florida. After a long bus ride and extremely elongated plane flight (with plenty of turbulence), I apparently didn't look (or feel) so great. My mother's first comment when I saw … Continue reading Home(?)
I used to think it was so cliche when people would say, "Just go, I suck at goodbyes." I said it yesterday. I feel slightly hollow. Five weeks is not a long amount of time. Five weeks didn't give me enough time. Just enough time to get to know someone, get a feel for their … Continue reading Last Days.
With only a few days left here in England, I'm extremely saddened. But here are some great pictures from London. Hugs, Steph Sami and I by London Tower Bridge! Muriel and I with Rupert Everett! We're On A Boat! (HMS Belfast)
In the past week, I have been so busy that I could not sit still. Between classes, field trips, and just maintaining a social life in general, I was worn out and exhausted almost every night. I do happen to be worn out and exhausted tonight, too - but for a much better reason. I … Continue reading London Calling
(Diagon) Alley, Cambridge London Calling! CHOMP So I think I have finally figured out how to post pictures...more to come. In the past week or so, so much has happened that I don't know where to begin. I finally visited London - SO BEAUTIFUL. Westminster Abbey took my breath away, but the rest of the … Continue reading Finally…Photos from England
I will admit that I did not come to England expecting extravagant food, but I have been pleasantly surprised. I'm not one to discuss food, but after a few people asking, I figured that I'd share my experiences with everyone. We eat here mostly in the dining hall, but no complaints there. When I say … Continue reading The Mandatory Foodie Report.
I can't dance. But at least I'll admit it. I will say, though...after a night of dancing here in Cambridge, I'm probably never going to step foot in an American discotheque again. There is absolutely no awkwardness here in Britain - you don't have to spend a whole song worrying about who is watching your … Continue reading “I Think That You Look Good On The Dancefloor”
I have never been on a plane flight this long. Nine. Full. Hours. My body is completely confused and bewildered - I'm hungry, I have a major migraine, and with my eye rings and bedhead I could pass for one of the poorly made-up actresses in a vampire flick. But Sami and I have made … Continue reading You Are Now Free to Move About the Cabin.
It’s official. I don’t have any extra pairs of underwear in my dresser and all of my favorite t-shirts have been crammed into a suitcase almost as tall as I am (well, I’m not that tall), in preparation for my journey to England tomorrow evening. Every single thing in my suitcase has been counted and … Continue reading Making Light of Packing Light
