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
Between travelling and packing and late night adventures with my friends, I've not been able to update my blog as frequently as I would've liked this summer. If I were to write about everything I've done in as much detail as I usually do, and then schedule all the post in weekly intervals, I think… Continue reading The Summer of Seventeen

My best friend Molly and I have talked about going to Disneyland for years. We visited for a short few hours around two years ago with our school but we wanted more. Usually people think of Disneyland as a place for kids, but two weeks ago, Molly and I packed up our suitcases and headed to France for a trip of dreams.
When you finish college, almost everyone expects you to go to university. You're expected to get a degree, get a job, get a house, get married and have kids, and that's it, that's your life.
