So there are quite a few words that are different in the UK than what an American would say. There are obviously phrases that Brits say that we would not normally say, but there are also everyday common words that they use but we would say something else. For the most part they are easy to figure out but it is curious how many common words are so different. They can’t understand why we have to make all of our words describe what the object is (for example we have to say bath tub instead of bath because otherwise we[…]Read More

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[…]Read More
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.

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[…]Read More
