October 2015 | Recap

on November 2, 2015

Here’s to October, the best month of the year when everything gets crisp and colorful and changes (and my birthday and candy).



  • As of October 5th the British government legislated that you must  buy plastic bags at the grocery store… And I hope the USA follows suit soon!
  • I gave two presentations and handed in my first two essays of my degree! But the work continues as I have my research proposal and two other essays due in November.
  • I’ve been going to the International Activities Society at my university and met the most amazing friends from all over the world!! Italy, Spain, France, Hungary, India, you name it. I need to start planning a trip!
  • Daylight savings time = SO DARK.



  • I had my first “cheeky Nando’s,” a quintessential British experience I am told.
  • Ate like a queen on my birthday, and expanded my cooking repertoire to include chili, quesadillas, and omelettes!
  • I’ve been to the Dutton three times this month, it definitely deserves its own blog post soon.
  • Finally tested out Glorious Art House in Exeter



  • My reading for fun ground to a halt as I’ve been researching my dissertation 
  • However I’ve been putzing around the Internet and love…this article on how volunteer work abroad can actually oppress more than help
  • and of course this poem:   



  • I went zip lining and tree top adventuring at Go Ape! Definitely an item checked off my bucket list.
  • Saw some Dartmoor ponies and beautiful views on this hike
  • Bought my ticket to Dublin in November!
  • Dressed as a snarky-political-undead-devil for Halloween, debatably the best holiday of the year.  



 I hope you all have nice memories to look back on, and are looking forward to November! 

My dad just arrived in England for a visit on Friday, so I’m excited about that, as well as a few other thrilling things happening this coming month. But you’ll have to stay tuned to see where I’m going, what I’m doing, and most importantly what I’m eating 😉
