Study Abroad Semester in Review

For all my talk about study abroad, I realized I never went in-depth about the classes I took and what I learned. So, like I’ve done for some of my quarters at the University of Denver, I wanted to share a little recap about the four classes I took at the University of Glasgow and what I learned in each. If you read my blog post about differences in education between the U.S. and Scotland, then you probably already know I was a little disappointed with the academic aspect of my study abroad experience. Regardless, I still managed to learn (and make!) some interesting things!  Continue reading “Study Abroad Semester in Review”

And now, I feel like I’m finally starting to settle into a calmer pace of life—although I still haven’t quite figured out the whole work-life balance thing, as evidenced by the serious lack of blog posts in August. I stumbled across these old, unused blog photos when I was clearing off my old phone and figured they would be perfect for today’s post! This is a great transitional outfit for those late summer days when it’s still too hot for thicker fabrics. I would be lying if I didn’t say I miss my long hair a little… can’t wait until I can braid it like this again. Continue reading “August 2022 Month in Review”
