Last blog post London

“It’s a little bit funny. This feeling inside.” I watched the movie Rocket Man with my friend Leila two weeks ago when I visited her in Hamburg Germany. It is funny. Until two days ago I really didn’t think I’d be feeling anything for London. I didn’t think I’d feel attached to it or the…

Get me outta here

So as far as reflecting on my identity and how it affects my experiences. I feel like my perspective has still stayed the same as before I arrived in London. As I sit here writing this at my computer screen at home, I feel relieved that I’m finally back in Florida. I personally didn’t enjoy…

Curtain Call

When I started this experience, I remember thinking all about how much time I had. It was 5.5 months. While I still have about 2 months left in the UK, between the time prepping for exams and actually taking them, it really doesn’t feel like much time at all. Knowing that I’ll only be here…

Close to the end

It is actually crazy how fast time flies. All my classes are over, and it is only just April. That’s one thing that is a little weird to me. There are only 12 weeks of teaching here in the UK. Then you get a whole month off to prepare for exams which take place in May. Most…

A Lil Bit of Everything

Although the semester is coming to an end, I still have 88 days left in the UK and, if you’re following Brexit, about 10 left in the EU. However, not all is fun and games as when classes end, exam preparation begins. Unlike permanent student here at QMUL who will be taking exams for the…

Third Month

Month THREE

Finally settling into London, it feels weird. I don’t wake up every morning thinking I’m in a new place, it has started feeling a lot like home! I guess you could say I’m pretty much fully accustomed to the lifestyle, university, and food etc. It has also been extremely tough at times, especially getting used…

Static

This experience just isn’t sunshine and rainbows, its cold winds and grey skies. I knew this. How could I not have known this? But trust me, it is so much easier to be sad and upset when I have Chick-Fil-A around the corner from me. I have met great people and have had amazing experiences,…

Second Month

I loved it here the first month. After I realized that I was spending too much money going to places, eating out, and spending on alcohol, I really stopped a lot of it all together. I also made the relationship with my boyfriend exclusive, and now I’m thinking whats the point of going out clubbing?…

First month

I made friends during orientation week and walked a lot touring the city with them. I really like them. Many are international students, from Brazil, America, France, Colombia, China. Very open minded and liberal people. I’m planning to join clubs and societies because I probably should go and make local friends from London too. Endless…
