L O N D O N – Finally Made It !


I finally made it to London! Well I’ve been here for almost 3 weeks. Sorry I haven’t been able to update you guys on my life but better late than never right? Anyways I am in London and I love it. I don’t want to leave. I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I started graduate school last week and it’s not as scary as I thought it would be. My program is only a year and after that I will be graduating from City University London with my Masters Degree. I am really excited and even though school just started I am ready for it to be over. I am taking 3 classes and they are very interesting. I am currently in a class right now writing this blog. It is kind of boring because it’s stuff that I already know. There isn’t any test in my program. I only have papers at the end of every term and a 15,000-word dissertation at the end of my program. I haven’t really made any friends yet. I honestly don’t feel like talking to any of these people. The young women in my classes are very stuck up. I don’t know if it’s because they are already clicked up or whatever the case may be. Also no one ever sits next to me in class. Well it’s only the second week so class. I am pretty sure that I will be making some friends. I am so exhausted and ready to be in my own apartment. I am currently staying with a friend but at the end of the week I should have my own place. Last week I applied for a waitressing job and I got an interview and I worked one day but they never called me back. I guess I didn’t get the job or they lost my phone number. I am still looking for a job so I am able to afford this expensive London lifestyle. I am so thankful that I was granted this amazing opportunity to further my education. I love London and I can’t wait for my friends to come and visit me. I am currently working on getting an internship and then hopefully getting a job so that I can stay after my program is finish. Graduate school isn’t like anything that I imaged. They way people talked about it made me think that it would be death. I need to be more discipline when it comes to graduate school because there is a lot of reading to do. I have yet to open a book or a read an article. I feel that once I get my own place I will be more discipline and be able to actually get a set schedule on life. Someone asked me if I was homesick. Laughing out loud! No I’m not home sick but I do miss my friends and family but I don’t miss Texas. I am so happy to be able to travel. I feel like this is more of a diary post that a London update. I am also vlogging on my YouTube channel. SO make sure you head over there and check it out. I will link my two newest vlogs below. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I’ll be back to update you on more. I have a few goals that I want to achieve this year. I am going to post my year bucket list. Attached are a few of my last vlogs that I have uploaded to YouTube. Anyways I will see you guys next time. Remember stay young and stay beautiful.
