Holy cow, another week gone by without any new blog posts! To be honest, blogging has been the last thing on my mind this week. Between friends and family visiting and lots of school deadlines, I’ve been feeling extra stressed the past few days and oh-so behind on just about everything. But with that said, it has still been another week jam-packed with fun! I flew to London on Thursday to meet up with my parents, so I’m basically on a short vacation now during my four-month-long study abroad vacation, ha. Can’t say I have a problem with it!

For those of you who don’t know, I will be studying abroad at the University of Glasgow in Scotland for the upcoming semester, from January to May. My long-time followers know what a saga it has been to get to this point… I originally started the study abroad process in 2019 and was supposed to go to Scotland in the fall of 2020. Obviously, Covid had different plans. A few re-applications and a whole lotta disappointment later, it looks like this dream will finally come true! I, of course, won’t fully believe it until I’m kissing the Scottish ground, but I otherwise have my plane tickets booked, housing contract signed, and bags packed. Glasgow, here I come!
