My last week in England was a pretty incredible one, if I do say so myself. Monday, Thea and I decided to head into Reading to do some last minute Christmas shopping, and to just get out of the house for a bit. We grabbed lunch at Marks & Spencer's, and had a great time … Continue reading It’s just see you later
This past week was my last week at Royal Holloway, so it was quite difficult, but also so lovely. It started off with me spending Monday in the library, as I had a few papers to finish up writing yet. I had a break getting lunch with Thea in the afternoon, before going back into … Continue reading See ya, RoHo!
This past week has been busy again, there's never a dull moment between the library and my friends- unless you consider the library dull. Monday I spent the day in the library, writing papers. After dinner, Thea and I went to Em's with Issy for a little bit, just to catch up, and then Em … Continue reading We’ll Always have Skype
These past couple of weeks have been quite busy with school work- I feel like I've moved into Founder's Library a little bit, but I'm finding time to spend with my friends as well! Monday, the 16th, I spent in the library writing, but managed to break away for the evening to go to Monkey's … Continue reading Friends into Family
It's been a while since I've posted anything- life has been a little crazy lately! I guess at least it's not boring. On the 28th of October, there was this big party at my school's Student Union, called "Come in Your Socs." For some background, they call clubs here societies (not sure why), and basically … Continue reading Birthdays, and Paris, and Bats- Oh My!
This week started similarly to my other weeks so far. I had a quiet Monday, catching up on some reading and writing, and went to Absolute Harmony in the evening. My friends and I all decided to go to 'Monkey's Monday' in the evening at the local pub, but I went home pretty early, because … Continue reading Vienna Waits for You
This week started off much nicer than last. Monday morning, I grabbed a coffee with my friend Leigh-Ann (I'm telling you- my quality of life is largely dependent on the quantity of tea and coffee in my life at any given moment), and we decided to go into Windsor this upcoming Wednesday to do some shopping! … Continue reading Coffee and Tea Make the World Go Round
This week, the rose colored glasses came off. Don't misunderstand- I still love it here more than I can put into words, and I would not change coming here for anything, but I had a bit harder of a week this week. Tuesday was a particularly challenging day for me, largely because it was the … Continue reading Reality Hits
This past week was the first week of lectures, which were surprisingly nice to get back into. The classes I'm taking this term are Romanticisms, Tristram Shandy, Modernist Fiction, and Drama and Witchcraft 1576-1642. It's a bit hard to tell after just one week, but I think I'm going to enjoy these classes. My professors … Continue reading Follow the Sound of Wales…
So I've been at school just over a week now, and I think I'm coming to love it a little bit more very day. The weather is perfect (although everyone keeps warning me the sun won't last!), the company is wonderful, and I've been so busy that I've hardly had time to miss home. This … Continue reading Welcome Week, and all it Offers
