Study Abroad: “I know Megan is here because I heard her accent”

I had this beautiful vision that I would write a blog post every week detailing the adventures of my year abroad. Seeing as it’s over three weeks since my last post I think it’s clear my blogging dream has not been fulfilled. Sometimes life just isn’t interesting enough to write about. Or at least dedicate…

Study Abroad: A US Adventure.

Does this week actually count as my year abroad? I haven’t actually done any studying but I have been in the USA so I’m halfway there. I spent the first week travelling and basically being a stereotypical tourist in New York and Philadelphia. This sounded like a fab idea back in May when I booked…

An open letter to the boy I met on a train.

Dear Jasper, I met you in the middle of your panic attack on the 10pm train from Nottingham city centre. You had been to Pride but you had been violently attacked towards the end because of your gender. You don’t know me, but I did sit next to you on the train home on Saturday…

Travel: Oxford.

Took a fun trip to Oxford and met some new people. Here are a few photo’s from the day:

Musicals.

For some reason, I can’t seem to stop listening to musical soundtracks. This obsession really started in sixth form when I would listen to musical recordings whilst I did my work. Fine. Cool. The upbeat sound being blasted into my ears kept my motivation up and I managed to get my excessive biology homework done…

Travel: London.

Despite living in Great Britain for my entire life, I finally went to London for the firs time in early December. Here are a few photographs I took!

Why Christmas is definitely the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s December. The Christmas jumper is on and all I’m playing is Christmas songs until the 25th. That’s a bit of a lie. Christmas songs began playing on the 2nd of November and with the recent release of the Hamilton Mix Tape Christmas tunes are not the only thing being played right now. Oh and…

Hope

Sundown on a summers eve Sunrise on a winters morn The early forest at dawn Chrisp autumn leaves Paws on the wooden floor Foot prints in fresh snow Gentle rain on the window pane Coloured pencils standing in a perfect line Soft hands running softly down your spine Electric atmosphere, loud beats in the air…
