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

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

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

Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving Break

Where to even begin with Thanksgiving? … Clearly this is yet one of those things i can tick of my imaginary bucket list – Celebrate Thanksgiving in America. Thankfully (Ha ha!) i was lucky enough to spend the holiday with the lovely Vallance Family, who are more kind and welcoming than any people I’ve met here so … 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

Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn

The first midnight premiere that i ever attended was Twilight – Breaking Dawn part 1. It was an experience to say the least – an exhausting but fun experience. In England movie screenings at midnight are like any other screening. Movie theatres stay open late for die hard fans who want to brave the darkness … Continue reading

First Snow in Maine!!!!

Playing outside at 1 am is always fun- no matter how old you are, snow is always fun when it’s the first snow of the year. As soon as enough snow had settled outside, my friends and i ran to get out of our pajamas in favour of more suitable clothing for a snowball fight. … Continue reading
