Reading Week Woes

My picture is from London’s West End. I can’t believe it’s almost christmas! When I first checked my syllabi for three of my four modules here at the University of Sheffield, I realized there was such a thing as a reading week; a week where the departments do not have any classes and is supposed ...

Wrong Lecture: IP Laws and Copyright

It was the day after my birthday(Happy Birthday to me!) and I was still feeling disoriented after a night of dancing. On Thursdays, I have a history lecture that starts at 1pm and ends at 2pm. Somehow I misread my calendar and thought my class was starting at 2pm instead. My feet were still tired ...

I’ve Been so Busy! Here’s Why

It’s been 19 days since I last checked in and I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. I should have written at least five days ago but I’ve been a busy, busy bee. Sorry about that and to make it up to you, I’ve compiled a list of all the stuff I’ve done ...

Oh What A Wonderful Week It has Been!

Hi! My name is Sarah Adigba and I’m currently studying abroad at the University of Sheffield. It’s been a week since I arrived in the UK and it’s been a whirlwind of an experience. My journey here was uneventful. I booked a super-cheap ticket on Thomas Cook airlines and slept through most of it. Then ...

Dancing Dragons in London: Cheers for Now!

Our final week in London included many final adventures and re-visits to our favorite sights in the city we have all grown to love so dearly.

For the last week of our adventures together, our professor, Miriam, organized a trip for us to all go to Stonehenge. The bus trip to Amesbury took about an hour. The drive there is beautiful as it takes you through the rolling, sheep-filled green hills of the English countryside. Once you arrive, you have the ...

Dancing Dragons in London: Immersive Ingredients Included

A large part of cuisine in England comes from the immigrants from the Indian Sub-continent. We have discussed and read about their influence in our Food and Culture class, and we finally had the opportunity to take a trip to an area of London where the Indian influence is the majority. We went to a ...

Cheers: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

I had to make a separate post to talk about my amazing day I had getting tickets to see the sold out London play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. At 5:30 in the morning on Saturday, August 20, myself and two other friends woke up and trekked over to the Palace Theatre to queue for ...

Cheers: Eye Love London!

After almost three weeks here in London I have to say that I could definitely see myself living here. I love the vibe of the city and the people here are unbelievably kind. My housemates and I have been trying to do as much as we can to take advantage of this beautiful city. This is hard, however, ...

Dancing Dragons in London: Foodways and Philosophies

The most exciting part of being able to take classes abroad is being able to contextualize the information we are learning. In our Food and Culture class we were able to taste a variety of traditional British foods and ingredients that characterize the nation’s food. Some of them were more appealing than others, and some ...
