Let the study abroad content begin! I finished packing last night and managed to squeeze five months-worth of clothing into just a carry-on suitcase and my backpack. 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.

I spent the week spending time with family, celebrating my 22nd birthday, and soaking up the last of this beautiful fall weather.
