$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

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!

Happy New Year, Bitches!

Happy New Year, Bitches!

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

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

Bangor Standpipe

Bangor Standpipe

After hearing from our friend that Bangor Standpipe opens just once a season for three hours each time, we took the opportunity to drive there and take in the views of the area. It was probably one of the last chances to get a good look at foliage colours before all the leaves fall, and … Continue reading
