Hi devoted readers,
Hope you’re all doing well and enjoying these last few weeks of summer sunshine. I just arrived home (Arlington,VA) after spending the summer interning for Town&Country magazine in NYC. I absolutely loved my internship (not sure if you caught the blog posts..), but I am very happy to have this month to relax and prepare for this wonderful journey that I am about to embark on. That brings me to the whole point of this blog post. I am going to be spending my junior year abroad studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. 🙂
I have been eagerly awaiting this year for what seems like forever. I think I found out around March that I would be spending my junior year across the pond at the Home of Golf. Since then, I have been stalking the St. Andrews Facebook page, reading every sort of article on BuzzFeed about Scotland, and breaking in my Barbour jacket (just kidding, it’s a little hot for that). I probably have spent a good 45 hours on Pinterest trying to perfect my abroad bucket list. Oh, and I started watching Outlander in the hopes of familiarizing myself with the Scottish culture (I have a feeling I will get used to the ruggedly handsome men and the picturesque villages). Even though I have been living in this perpetual state of anticipation for a year, I can’t believe that now I leave in less than a month. I mean, I am in awe. I can’t believe that this is happening to me, and I can’t believe how unprepared I am. Like the whole Visa process? I know nothing. Not to mention what to pack….. I feel hopeless when it comes to all the logistics of studying abroad, and I just pray that it all works out.
I made a promise to myself to try to write/ blog every day while I am abroad… so I am going to try to do that (but let’s be real, we all know how life just sometimes gets in the way). Looking forward to blogging more!
Thanks for Reading,
