You’re doing good, February!

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

And so it begins…

And so it begins…

Semester two of my year in America is finally upon us. I’ve been slacking when it comes to blogging, but life has just been too busy – who am i kidding, I’ve just been lazy! Following my New Year’s adventures i continued my winter break journey by travelling back to Maine – and back to the snow – … Continue reading

Happy New Year, Bitches!

Happy New Year, Bitches!

So New Years Eve and Day were spent with my friend Claire in New York! Exciting, right? Being in New York i think we were guaranteed to see some weird things, and that we did. We started 2013 with seeing a very drunk woman, staggering around the carriage yelling ‘Happy New Year Bitches’ and later … Continue reading

The semester draws in…

Back in September i wrote about which of my classes was becoming my favourite  and looking back i believe i was right, for the most part. I waffled on about my The U.S & Vietnam: A history class and even went as far as to say “i feel like i’ll enjoy learning about a subject that i’m … Continue reading

Basketball in the Alfond

Basketball in the Alfond

Basketball was a sport that i had done nothing but played in gym on the days it was too rainy to play on the outdoor fields. Coming to America i knew that basketball was big in most states, and whilst not as big in Maine the basketball team still gets a good turn out to … Continue reading

Homecoming Weekend – 20/21st October

Homecoming weekend!! Last weekend was super fun! Homecoming is something we don’t celebrate in the UK. Here in the US, although a little later at UMaine than most colleges, it’s a chance to celebrate coming back to college and a chance for alumni to celebrate. Homecoming meant a lot of sports events at UMaine so … Continue reading

Football and Apples!

Football and Apples!

I love the weekends here at UMaine. After a long week of classes i am always excited for the weekends, even if i have no paticular plans, as soon as Friday hits i relax. This past weekend was no different, but my plans for the weekend were what made me more excited. Saturday saw the … Continue reading

Lobstah Dinah

Today was Steak or Lobster day in the dining hall. It had been advertised for a few weeks and i was looking forward to trying something new, and a very Maine food. The lobster was creepy. I have never liked food that still has eyes attached, and sitting there with a lobster staring back at … Continue reading
