How I learned to love: #GLAmour

It’s the last day of February, so like the procrastinator I am, I’m taking a shot at this month’s writing challenge: #GLAmour.

While I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not always great at loving … Continue reading How I learned to love: #GLAmour

And she’s back at ‘er

Well friends, it’s been over a year since I last spilled to you – and let me tell you, there have been a TON of developments in that time.    I’ve been away from this blog because I took a much-needed break from school.

There, with a simple click of my mouse, sat my information package for my exchange session in Belgium next semester. Cool, right?! As I read through the package and learned that I had three months before I was expected at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, … Continue reading The most exciting and terrifying email I’ve ever received

The world could potentially be my oyster…

As an iBA (international bachelor of arts) student, I’m required to spend at least one semester abroad as part of my degree.  Last week, the process for exchanges opened up – WOOHOO! York International and the Glendon Exchange department came to present us with the application process, requirements, and the possible locations and schools we could study at.  Needless to say, I’ve spent many hours … Continue reading The world could potentially be my oyster…
