Hello from the Other Side (of the Atlantic)

This winter break has been the strangest two weeks of my life. When I travel home for break, it’s typically a 1800 mile stretch, so I’m used to not seeing my friends for months on end. The 4683 miles from London to Denver feels the same. The time I’ve spent at home has felt completely normal and I’m…

Finality is Bittersweet

It’s hard trying to figure out what to say now that I’m here. It honestly feels like the third week of September – I know enough to not get lost on the tube, but there’s not way I’ve been here for four months. Saying goodbye to the city is different than when I graduated high…

Party Hard

Remember how I said I didn’t like going out or living the nightlife life? Guess what I had to do. Thursday, two weeks ago now that I’m actually sitting down to write this, was the company Christmas party. Naturally, I was a little apprehensive about meeting industry professionals in a party environment. And the party…

The Better Side of Nightlife

I hate clubs. I make it a point to avoid them so most nights find me inside, flopped on the couch with my laptop.  This week, however, I found myself out at all hours. And actually enjoying myself. Let’s get one thing straight. I came here for the music and this week I was swamped…

I See Skyes of Grey

So after my big week of traveling, I was really looking forward to a weekend lie-in. WRONG. Remember back to September when you thought trips every weekend would be fine? Remember that? Yeah, don’t bother unpacking; it’s time for Scotland. Up until this week (and even now), the weather has been rather extraordinary. The sun…

Ode to Baklava

Do not go to Greece. I repeat, do not go to Greece. It will ruin you. Fall break was a whirlwind, Whereas most people seemed to explore one or two places, I ran through three countries and five cities. First up was Prague. A midnight trip to a city where words look like gibberish is…

Free Museums are a Dangerous Thing

I think I’ve repaid the amount of my plane ticket from the US in free museum visits alone. I don’t know who decided that museums in London should be free, but they deserve their own bank holiday. And a parade. If you only have one day in London, spend it reliving the Great War. America,…

Other than Banksy

London is absolutely gorgeous. It disappoints me the more I live here to hear it reduced to an international metropolitan hub. The title strips the city of its humanity and culture. Westminster area is noted for its beauty while the rest of the city is reduced to urban sprawl, too many people in not enough…

Just a Mid-Sized City Girl, Living in a Mountain World

She took the 9:15pm Plane, Going to Heathroooooow. Pardon my singing, but it’s been a long trip and I didn’t warm up. Let me start this off by saying I started this blog post on the plane while watching Inside Out. I can’t believe it’s only been ten days since that sleep deprived ride. Living in…

Stages of Preparation

I’m supposed to be nervous for this, right? Funny thing is, I’m not. At all. This is my first time off the continent and I can’t wait to get a move on. Other than the daunting 9 hour plane ride, I’m all grins. Thinking this a bit odd, I scouted the CAPA (and other study abroad…
