Swapping Hull, England for Orono, Maine – and not really prepared to do so.
Hi! I am a twenty-one year old, English girl studying American Studies at the University of Hull. Many people ask what American Studies is, and the easiest way to describe it… It’s a course where i study America; it’s culture, history, art, literature and all round uniqueness. What better way to study it than to experience it first hand by living there for a year? – at least that’s what my professors think… and so i was sent to spend my third year of university abroad at the University of Maine in Orono, and this blog is the place i shall document the weird and wonderful things i experience whilst in America.
