A Week at NTC

What does a week at NTC look like? It looks completely different from a week at MNU, I can tell you that much. A typical week at NTC is first of all only three days. We go to school Monday through Wednesday. The idea is that you are in class for so many hours, but then you do the majority of the learning on your own. I’ll give you an example of my typical week here. On Monday, my first class isn’t until 11 am. Typically I sleep until like 10:30 and if I have time go to the coffee[…]

Weird things about the UK

Now that I have been living in the United Kingdom for almost seven months now, there are a few different things that I have picked up that you can only recognize when you have lived somewhere for a while that are different from the way we do things in the United States. For the most part I have found that the UK culture is very similar to our own but there are a few minor differences that you can pick up on that just seem strange to an American. 1. Their lemonade is clear and bubbly. Instead of the lemonade[…]

My Week In A Glance (In Pictures)

My week has been packed with things which was a pleasant change from being sick for a whole week before that. Instead of writing a ton of words here like usually, I thought I would just post a bunch of pictures to show you what my week was like.  I had the idea because MNU’s website has this handy function of showing you a whole week in advance (you just have to chose a certain week). It is really good to print out schedules and see what your classes look like. Also, not only is this blog more interesting than reading, but[…]

Spontaneous Road trip

So last weekend, my only plans were to work on my essay that was due on Monday. However, on Thursday night we were all sitting around playing card games and board games and wanted to play more but had already played all of the ones that we had. On Friday at like 4:30 Harriet told me that they were all going to her house in Swindon (about three hours away) to get some more board games and asked if I wanted to go. Of course, if there is anything that I am always down for at any time it is 1. Breakfast 2. Coffee 3. Naps 4. Good music and 5. ROAD TRIPS. So two hours later we were hitting the road. It was a great trip filled with jamming out in the car and deep heartfelt convos. I did end up getting my essay done in case you were wondering. Basically this vlog is a bunch of random clips from our road trip and us being our crazy selves. Enjoy!

Studying… or the lack thereof

Congratulations are in order MNU for we have just competed week 4 of our spring semester of school. You know what that means… Summer is just around the corner and seniors have already graduated and gone on vacation in their minds. *Senioritis has arrived and although I am only a junior I fear that I have also been diagnosed with the worst case of it. With that being said here are a few things that I do instead of studying: *Senioritis is defined by google as, “a supposed affliction of students in their final year of high school or college,[…]

Man United, Chinatown, and NTC Community

So this past week I went to a Manchester United game, which is one of the biggest teams here in the UK. The stadium hold roughly 73,000 and every game is sold out. My friend and I got free tickets to go to the game last Sunday! It was really cool to see the team play, and they won 4-0! We also went to Chinatown for Chinese new year and they had carnival like rides along with stands of different noodles and tents to make Chinese crafts! After that we went and got brunch at a cafe called Moose cafe that is based on American and Canadian breakfast. On Thursday we also had a community meal with the people who live in Hurlet (the dorm halls on NTC’s campus).
