I can’t believe another quarter has gone by. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was writing this last goal update! Summer 2017 was a blur. I got very busy with my internship, I prepared for my semester abroad, and I tried to relax in the 5 weeks of summer vacation that I had. I also did spend some more time on the blog (which means that my stats have been growing again, yay!). So let’s dive into this goal update! If you haven’t already, make sure to read my Q1 and Q2 updates!

This update is going to be a bit different from the previous ones. I now realize that I only have 3 months to reach my goals, and I’m not totally happy with the fact that I have reached none of them except for two. So I’ve revisited them. I have changed the numbers of most of my blogging ones so they are more realistic, and I’ve also added and removed some goals.  View Post

As you probably know (I’ve talked about it a lot on this blog and on all my social media channels), I’m currently abroad for a semester in England. I can hardly believe that I’ve been here for a week already! I feel like the week has flown by.

I know studying abroad can be a scary experience, especially the first week. Studying abroad can be scary. You’re thrown into a brand new environment where you know no one. You will be disoriented.

As someone who has literally just experienced this, I thought I would give you a few tips on how to survive your first week as an international student and how to make the best out of it!  View Post

I can’t believe that in less than a week (5 days to be exact!), I’ll be leaving for my semester abroad in England (!!!!!). Yes, I am completely freaking out. I’ve been knee-deep in last minute preparation lately, so I thought I would share with you the last steps that I’ve taken to prepare my four months abroad before I leave.

I have to admit that I was afraid of hitting publish on this post. Why? Because while I enjoy chit chat posts (they’re actually my faves!) and they seem to have turned into a thing in the college blogging world lately, I feel like they are sort of filler posts. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s awesome that some bloggers are turning it into weekly series, but in my case, I just seem to resort to those posts whenever I don’t have anything to write about, which has been the case lately. My life just isn’t that interesting!

But, I also realized that it had been nearly a month since I had last written a life update (my study abroad one doesn’t count), so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to update you guys on what has been going on in my life lately.  View Post

It’s crazy how time flies. It just hit me that I’m leaving for my semester abroad in the UK in 28 days. That’s 4 weeks! It’s all a little crazy.
