Reading & Reflection

It certainly has been quite a while since I last posted.

I finished my second year of university recently. It has been quite an eye opening experience, coming to the realization that you’re halfway through, and that much closer to making a living in the “real world.”

I will be departing for London in August, and cannot wait to see what this new adventure holds for me.

I’m determined to write more this summer, and get back into this passion of mine.

Another determination of mine is to read a lot of literature this summer.

I’ve recently read , I’ll Never Be French (no matter what I do), a fantastic memoir about an American man who moves to Brittany, and the cultural barriers he faces on a daily basis.

In excitement of my trip to England, I’ve read the literary classics Pride and Prejudice, and Emma by, as you know, the one and only Jane Austen.

I’ve vowed to read all of her works this summer, and to also check out other 17th and 18th Century English classics.

Turning over to music, I’ve been really into the band Rose’s Pawn Shop recently. Out of California, I saw them play several times at FloydFest over the years. My mother made an acquaintance with the lead singer, Paul.

They have a folksy Indie feel, which I love.

Check them out!

214 & Counting

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last checked in with the blogosphere, but I’ve just been so preoccupied.

In about 2 weeks, I’ll have my first meeting about my semester abroad in London!

I might be taking a photography course, a contemporary British theatre course, and an art course, where I’d be spending time in some of London’s collections.

214 days away and counting!

I’m daydreaming about returning to the Upper East Side in the near future.

Update!

Happy Tuesday!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m still alive on the blogosphere.

Sometimes life (aka school) gets in the way.

Now that finals are over, I’m ready to reboot over Winter break.

I’ve been busy Christmas shopping as well!

Lately, I’ve really been into The LOFT and J Crew Factory.

My must haves on my wish list this year include shift dresses, romantic blouses, and infiniti scarves.

I’ve also become obsessed with the James Bond OPI collection. Currently, I’m sporting “You Only Live Twice,” which is perfect for the holiday season.

Quick Update

Happy Friday!

I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA for the past month, I’ve been busy with the start of my second year of university.

This semester I’m taking a lot of political science courses. I find politics to be fascinating, especially since I’ll be voting in my first presidential election in a matter of weeks.

“Who I’m voting for?” you may ask. Well that’s a secret I’ll never tell.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a NEEDTOBREATHE concert. It was fantastic.

After the concert I met the lead singer of the opening act, Parachute.

I’ve been into red lipstick lately.

I promise to start posting more often!
