Joining Hanyang University Clubs Part 1

Hello from Korea again! So for this post, I wanted to talk about the other Korean-foreign groups. The first groups I wanted to mention are Glitters and HOW (Hanyang One World). They are different groups of Korean students who plan fun events open to both Korean students and foreigners alike, Glitters being one specifically catered ...

Keeping Up With Life at Home

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” -Tony Robbins One of the many things I was looking forward to prior to coming to London was the opportunity to live in an environment ...

York Reflection

So here it is. My final day in the UK. As I sit here in terminal five at Heathrow Airport, I can’t shake the fact that I am actually leaving. This semester will truthfully go down as the or one of the best semesters of my college career. In middle school I talked to one ...

The Day Before Departure

4/3/2018 I remember being 10 years old and the most distance I ever traveled was for a trip to Disney World. I remember waking up early in the morning right as the sun began to peek through the clouds. I had to aid my Dad with packing all of our heavy luggage and each time ...

The Great British Tour

Ok the title may be a little misleading since I’ve only seen three places, but that’s good enough in my book! Before I left York, my floor mates opened up their homes to me for a couple day stay if I wanted to (I know I know they are great mates!). The first stop was ...

Hampton Court

A few days before I had to depart this beautiful country, I had the luxury to visit Hampton Court. Now I know you have no idea what that is (neither did I), but it is one of Britain’s many treasures. Here’s why! Back in the good ole times of the 1500s, this man named Cardinal ...

Walking in Royal Footsteps

“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” – Samuel Johnson I’ve only been here for almost 2 weeks and I already feel as though I have been here for much longer. After adjusting and settling into my new home in Kensington, I have had a some time to explore the ...
