Few Weeks in London!

Hi all!! I have now been living in London for a little over 3 weeks now, and it has completely exceeded my expectations.  The people are super friendly, for the most part, and the weather has actually been really nice, besides a few days of cold rain.  Let me tell y’all a little bit about…

Mind the Time

Just like that, I am about 1/3 into my study abroad program here in London! Getting settled into London has taken some time, but I have finally adjusted (mostly) to what my life abroad consists of. I am living in West Kensington with two other flatmates, Sam & Thomas, and I also have met many…

Sunny, Sunny London

Greetings from sunny London! My first two weeks here have been incredibly busy to say the least! Each week, I work around 20 hours at my internship and attend two classes. My internship is interesting and my commute is relatively light compared to many of my peers. In the morning, I take the bus to…

Becoming a Londoner

Commuting to and from work and school has become so familiar, I know exactly where i’m going without a second thought. I even see the same people on the streets and the tube making my way through the vast city. I prefer walking to taking the tube or the bus most days, so I can…

Week One In The Books

This is my first full week since being in London and it’s been a great experience. I am living in Camden Town which has so much history. I had the chance to explore the town not only on my own but with an actual tour guide who was able to give us more of the…

Goodbye London, Hello Philadelphia!!

Since flying home from London two weeks ago, I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on the experiences that I had there. I have noticed a lot more independence in myself, a special readiness for my academics in the fall, and a newfound sense of pride in my professional development skills. I am very…
