Planning Ahead? What is this madness?

This has no relevance, I just enjoyed how it looked.

Hello beauties! So today I went to a university fair with one of my friends. (Aren’t we such good children? Planning for our future and being all productive like? I know. I’m frightened about this new development too.) Anyway, there actually were very few universities there, none of my three that I want to go to (U of C, UBC or UPEI) but they will all be coming to my school shortly so it doesn’t really matter. But there was this booth for a program called SWAP. Essentially what it is, is a company who helps university students find summer jobs in other parts of the world. So you are traveling and seeing the world for the summer but also making money. You pick a country then they set you up with a flight and two night accommodation there and during those two-three days they help you set up a cellphone, visa, bank account, find a long term place to stay, set you up with your job and give you the run down on how things work. I thought this was just such a great idea and I intended to do it for the summer after my first year of university. London, Wales or Ireland? What do you think? It’s a Canadian thing so I don’t know how many of you are Canadian, but if you are then go check out their website! I will link it HERE. They take people ages 18-35 and you don’t have to be attending university. If you aren’t Canadian, I’m sure there are other companies that do similar things so go Google it! Also, more travel news, my parents have also told me they are taking me on a trip as a graduation/18th birthday present anywhere I want. Spain, Italy or Greece? I am torn equally with all three. So opinions, please!

There! My future life is all organized, the present is a bit chaotic and not together but details! Hmm, what else can I tell you about today? *taps lower lip* I bought onions and potatoes at the farmers market from an attractive young Amish man. Oh and I cut and dyed my hair, both by myself a couple nights ago. It was so nerve wracking! I wanted my bangs done but my hairdresser kept being busy when I was free, so my friends told my to cut them myself and I did, but all I had were those curved nail scissors. So stressful! But they turned out okay, I think. For the dye I put in a red steak, it turned out kind of pinkish but whatever. My life really isn’t that interesting so I will leave this off here. Bye guys! Kisses!

  1. I’m an American living in London and it’s quite the experience. I moved to England 9 years ago to go to uni in Lancaster so it was quite a difference living outside of London versus living in London. I guess you would have to decide what kind of experience you want. Both of those cities satisfied something inside of me that I felt I was missing out on. I enjoyed living in a small but active city which allows you to get to the surrounding countryside quickly with minimal hassle and yet I also like London which is in your face as far as hustle and bustle go. I feel like there’s always something new to see and there’s so much to do. I highly recommend coming to the UK if you get a chance. I haven’t been to Wales but have been told that it’s also really nice. The same for Ireland.

    Good luck! I’m really excited for you. It’s such an adventure leaving one’s home to live in a different country.
