I cannot believe my flight back to the states is tomorrow already.  It is scheduled to depart in 25 hours. This semester has undoubtedly been the best thus far.  I can honestly say that Lafayette’s study abroad program is excellent.  Although it was not one of the factors that originally attracted me, it is going […]

I have 9 days until I return to the states.  I honestly cannot believe how quickly this semester has flown by.  About 45 seconds before I started writing this blog post I submitted my final essay.  Now all I have left is a group presentation next week and I am looking at one more semester […]

This semester is quickly coming to an end. I have two full weeks of classes left and a lot of essays to finalize. I have realized that “finals week” here is much different than back home. Here at Goldsmiths, although all essays have a concrete due date, students have the freedom to finish the semester […]

Time keeps flying by this semester…it is unlike any other semester at college.  Final due dates are looming ahead of me and I only have so much time to plan all of the rest of the activities I want to do before leaving for the states.  If you do ever plan on going abroad, make […]

It is now week six of classes here at Goldsmiths University and the clock continues to tick.  This past Tuesday we Lafayette students went on a particularly interesting set of tours.  (Quick aside – I have to thank both Lafayette and the professor with us in London, Chris Ruebeck, for treating us to tours nearly […]

As I type it is 4:46 p.m. in the London borough of Lewisham.  That would make it about…11:46 (now 47) back home.  I’ll be honest, I have had a few pangs of homesickness recently, but that is to be expected.  I of course miss my friends and family, but I am also missing my favorite […]

Do you enjoy Halloween? (Which you probably do – who doesn’t like dressing up and eating copious amounts of candy?!)  If so, you would definitely enjoy spending the final week of October in England, folks here take Halloween seriously.  There have been zombie festivals throughout London all month, every day this past week I have […]

I am currently sitting in the library at Goldsmiths University and although this will not be the focus of my post, I just want to take this opportunity to vent.  If you go to a school where you are not asked to share two textbooks with 50 other students, consider yourself lucky.  I have been […]

Over the past couple days my friends and I have really started to seriously explore the surrounding neighborhoods in the vast city that is London.  The changing scenery is really quite spectacular.  On the far east-end is the quiet Olympic Gardens; the peaceful setting makes you forget you are in a city.  Travel a couple […]

Early this week, my parents touched down in London after spending the previous week exploring Ireland. They were a welcome sight. We spent A LOT of time eating. We dined at a top Indian restaurant, some small coffee shops, a traditional pub, and a Thai pub. I found it interesting that, in London, pubs owned […]
