The Penultimate Episode

Hey there, here’s a very quick rundown of how finals’ season went for me in Korea. First off, I had finals for 3 classes, but 2 of those classes were Korean classes and they split up their exams over multiple day (AGAIN), so it took a while for me to actually finish all of them….

A perfect weekend in London

This past weekend, my flatmates and I decided to do a bunch of activities in England. Firstly, we got to go to the Royal Ascot. The Royal Ascot can be compared to the Kentucky Derby. It was about an hour from London. Of course, it was also one of the hottest days of the year…

Weekending in London

This weekend I flew to London! It is extremely interesting to travel around to other parts of Europe besides Barcelona, Spain as they have all been so different and unique. London was very interesting to see as it was filled with so many different types of people and cultures! On our first night, we did…
