As tomorrow is officially my 19th birthday, I thought it would be nice to summarise my year as an eighteen year old. I kicked off my 18th birthday with a trip to Tesco with my dad. My only purchase being 2 litre bottles of vodka. Every year, on the Saturday before Christmas, some of the… Continue reading Eighteen in Review
It had been rumoured to start snowing soon for a few days at school. Being a Brit, I wasn't too hopeful, but my inner child couldn't help but get excited at the thought of snow. On Friday morning, I was getting ready for school when I caught a glimpse of something white outside my window.… Continue reading Snow In Utrecht
I came to study on the mainland of Europe, so I would have opportunities to travel easily between various countries. Having been here nearly 3 months, I thought now would be the time to act on that. Last month, my university were offering a trip to Antwerp, Belgium, for €15 so it was an offer I… Continue reading A Day In Antwerp
Ever since my adopted cousin, Ian, moved to England three years ago, my parents have thrown a Thanksgiving dinner for him. We usually celebrate the weekend after the Americans, however, this year it was easiest for us to celebrate a little earlier, on the 11th of November.
I've been waiting for Kelsea's new album pretty much since her first one came out. As I mentioned in my What I'm Listening To post, I saw a video of her performing High School around 2 and a half years ago, and as soon as she said it was going on the second album, I began… Continue reading Review: Kelsea Ballerini’s Unapologetically
I had a week off school for Autumn break and I had originally planned to stay here in the Netherlands. However, when my mum texted me to say that Stockard Channing was in a play running on the West End, we decided it was essential that we went to see it. So last Friday, I… Continue reading Back to Old Blighty (Again)
My music taste is beyond obscure. I don't think it could be defined to one particular genre and even though many of my friends try to peg me down to "Taylor Swift", it varies from late 1980s alternative rock to current pop and everything in between. I'm always up for new music recommendations, so if… Continue reading What I’m Listening (and Dancing) To
Anyone who knows me or has been here before will probably know that I have friends, who are so close they might as well be family, in New Jersey. Seen as my cousin of sorts lives in Leicester, his parents flew over to England to visit him for a few days. Last weekend, my mum… Continue reading Surprising My Family
I've been writing this blog for over nine months now, but I think I am yet to share anything that gives you much insight into my character. Yes, by now you should have figured out that I love to travel, but I thought it would be nice to answer some questions so my readership (mainly my friends and my mum ha) can get to know me a little better.
Three weeks ago today I got on a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport to start my new life as a university student in Utrecht. If you've been here before, you probably won't need to all the information on that, if you're new here you can read all about it here. I've definitely learnt a lot… Continue reading The First Three Weeks of the Future
