Money and budgeting are things that I struggle with, like most college students. I’m not that bad when it comes to saving money, but I’m so afraid of spending that I just can’t enjoy the money I’m earning. I think I need to learn to strike a nice balance. As I don’t know much about money myself, I was super excited when Araminta of Financially Mint reached out to me with her guest post idea! If you want to learn how you can control your finances while you’re in college, you’re going to love this post!

Wow! What a month it has been! December was probably one of the most eventful months I’ve had so far, so I thought a little life update would be a good idea before I embark on a new journey (aka starting an internship and moving to the south shore of Montreal again).
Happy New Year, y’all! I know it sounds cliché… but I can’t believe we’re already in 2018. What a year it has been! I moved to the Montreal south shore for an 8-month internship, I studied abroad in England and traveled around the UK, I saw a Cirque du Soleil show in Trois-Rivières, I attended a summer wedding, I dyed my hair, I made new friends, I boarded a plane for the first time in my life, I made the Dean’s list for the second time in my college years… and I’m probably forgetting some things.
It has honestly been such an eventful year in all aspects of my life. I discovered more about myself than I ever thought I would, and I think I have a better understanding of who I am as a person and I’m starting to accept it. I’ve fought with myself for years because I wasn’t satisfied with who I was and the way I looked, but that’s a story for another post. 😉
But 2018 will be just as eventful, if not even more. I have so many things in stores, including on the blog, so I thought I would give you a little heads up as to what is coming up for me and for A Wanderer’s Adventures in 2018. But before we head into that, it’s time to revisit my 2017 goals! View Post
It’s that time of the year again! Ever since I’ve started my blog, there’s one thing that I’ve managed to do every single year: a round-up of my favorite books. I’ve always been a bookworm and I always try to fit as many books in my year as I can. Sadly, as the years have gone by, I’ve had to reduce that amount considerably (I read over 100 books in 2015!), but I still like to believe that I read more than the average person (find out how I do it here!). If you’ve read the two past editions of this post (read the 2015 one here and the 2016 one here), you know that these tend to be quite lengthy, so I’ll just jump right into it!
I have to admit that I almost ended up not writing this post, simply because I have around 10,000 words to write for all my assignments combine and about 7 days left to complete them all before I leave for Edinburgh, but I really wanted to write it because so many of you have requested it.
As you already know, I am currently spending the semester abroad in England, and I’m situated 20 minutes outside of London (by train). And being a complete die-hard Harry Potter fan, I just could not come to England and not visit the Harry Potter studios. So on November 27, I headed to Watford to visit The Making of Harry Potter at the Warner Bros studios. True Potterhead, I was wearing my Ravenclaw scarf (#RavenclawPride) that I bought at Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross for my birthday. As you can imagine, the excitement was real and my expectations were high. View Post
