One of my favorite parts about the great city of London, is everything it has to offer in the forms of entertainment. While my time abroad, I chose to take classes that I knew I would thoroughly enjoy, ones that would keep me immersed into the cultural of London. Taking hard and heavy courses would have left me not having time for other activities. I figured that while I am here in London, I should do a light load of school work and enjoy the things I love,…

Over the past couple of weeks, life at university has been very busy. In my time here, there has been so many great experiences that I have had just from living in the small town I do right outside of London. Campus life here in Harrow has been great for me because it is something that I am not exactly used to when I attend school back in the States. I drive to school in Atlanta, but here I live so close that I can walk to anywhere…

Ahhh, the winter holidays are some of my favorite times of the year. Everyone decides to put work and reality aside and come together to have fun and enjoy each others company. Now usually this time of the year consists of people going back to their hometown on break from university. Time is spent with your friends from home and your family, at least this is how most holiday seasons have been for me in the past. Except this year is much different because I got to spend…

So there is truly nothing better than food. I am going to go ahead and admit that most of the time, I am thinking of food. Especially when I am living in a cultural mecca where people bring their traditions of cooking to share and teach. In London, there is a not a corner of town where you cannot find something delicious to eat. Since I have gotten here, I have been so immersed into different kind of food. Especially types that I did not think I had…

Over the past couple of months, I have been completely wrapped up in a certain form of entertainment that I never gave much credit to in the past. It is one that I never took much of an interest in until I stumbled across a prank video on YouTube, that somebody had linked on Facebook. From that moment in time, I have become so interested in this new-found ability for people to publicly video log what they are doing. I also became very excited because most of the…

London is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. There is so much around in the form of fashion and art. Every street, every corner, every wall, every store, and restaurant has its own unique look to it. The individual design of all the different areas is what makes traveling around the city so much fun. I haven’t been and hopefully will never be disappointed when I go somewhere, because I never really know what to expect. Every now and then I will get on…

Before I got to England, I thought I was going to have the hardest time traveling. I heard so much from people before I left that the transportation system in the UK was rather easy, yet every time they explained it to me, I got a little confused. Nah, I am not going to lie, I got REALLY confused. Before anyone leaves to come here, there is usually a period of time where you Google search ‘London tunnel maps, bus lines, taxis’. Not too mention there are so…

Study abroad is an experience like no other. There is never another chance in your life that you can go to another country, live there for several months, and be a full time student. It is a life-altering experience that you can take with you after your college career is over. While in London, I have grown as a person and learned so much.  One of the main things that I think almost every study abroad student acquires is becoming more independent. Before I left for London, I hadn’t…
