You’re doing good, February!

Blogging has been hard lately, not because i’m too busy but because i haven’t had the patience to sit down and write about my life… I’m having a great time in Maine this semester in all aspects of my life, but the thought of midterms being around the corner just makes me think i’ll be … Continue reading

$20 In My Pocket

Last Friday i spent my afternoon running around Goodwill with some friends. It’s odd to think about ‘charity shops’ in the UK, compared to the thrift stores of America. Goodwill is literally 10x the size of any charity shops in Leeds! I love thrift stores in America and even though it’s a little tedious to … Continue reading

Miserably Cold in Maine

Miserably Cold in Maine

When you see pictures like this one on your Facebook as soon as you wake up you know your day is just going to be horrible. Maine is lovely, don’t get me wrong, but with wind chills making it feel this cold, i certainly did not want to get up this morning. Since coming to … Continue reading

Hugging the wall was the only option for me … Continue reading

The semester draws in…

Holidays are coming

The 1st of December fell on a Saturday this year, and with the weather in Maine once again turning extremely cold we made the most of the first weekend of December. After much drinking and merriment  with my chums in York Hall we decided to walk around campus and down to the river at 2 am. … Continue reading
