The American South v. Great Britain

Aug 01, 2011

I have taken a liking to the Cambridge way of life (or as the English would say, I have come to fancy). Due to my obsession with my current atmosphere, I started to question my lifestyle back home. While doing so, I realized there are many similarities with the Southern lifestyle and the English. 1. […]

Early Morning Breakfast

Aug 01, 2011

This morning Lauren and I decided to go to the early morning breakfast at 7:30am instead of our usual 8:30am breakfast. We were hoping that by doing so, we would have ample time before class to work on our papers. As we approached the dining hall, we were shocked that we didn’t hear any noise […]

A Glimpse at the Classrooms

Jul 28, 2011

We went out to dinner and had some drinks after. Today I continued the celebration by going to my favorite […]

Jul 15, 2011

  Since Monday, I have been extremely busy! So busy that I haven’t been able to post any blog entries. However, this is the run down of the past week. Monday We arrived at Heathrow around 11:00am. About two hours later, we found ourselves at the gates of Selwyn College at University of Cambridge (pictured […]
