Coming Home Because of COVID

As everyone else this semester, I was forced to end my exchange early and come home amid the Coronavirus Pandemic. Not only was this very disappointing and sad but it was also a very scary experience with how quickly everything escalated.             First, Italy shut its borders. At this point, the severity of the situation had not hit me yet. Sure, Italy was closed, but in my...

The Best Month of my Life: February 2020

I’ll admit, my first month in France was hard. I could speak as much French as the average 3-year-old, and for me, reading French takes the brain power just short of calculus. I knew no one and I was all alone for the very first time, with more than an ocean separating me from all I knew and loved. On my first day, I was very anxious about meeting new people and making friends. Luckily for me, KEDGE did a very good job with their...

I spent the first day exploring...

Glasgow is classified as a UNESCO City of Music which is thrilling. There are always so many shows going on and live music nights out. I have a weakness for spending money on concerts and music so this is a dangerous place for me to be. This post will showcase some fun and some free places to experience Glasgow’s music scene as well as Glasgow bands. If you come during late winter like I did, the Celtic Connections festival will...

Glasgow Impressions

It was 8 am and it was still dark outside. Forget jet lag messing with your sense of time, the light here made me constantly question what time it was when I first arrived. The sun doesn’t rise until after 8 and it is dark again by 5 pm. On the plus side, I have never seen so many sunrises in my life. My roommate and I moved our small couch, complete with a very interesting floral pattern from the 80’s, to the bay of windows in our...
