Studying Abroad

Like I said earlier in the month of June I took my happy butt across the ocean all the way to Scotland. It was an amazing experience and one that I hope to do again, just this time hopefully with my dude instead of a bunch of strangers.
Ill try to make a few different posts chronicling  my time there without being too overwhelming. I should of done this right when I got back because I am afraid I have forgotten a few things but ahhhh procrastination how I love you.



 We left Nashville and arrived in the Newark airport in the afternoon. From there we boarded for the long flight over the ocean. I couldn't sleep as hard as I tried during that red eye so I stayed up watching in flight movies instead. We arrived at like 7am Scotland time which is 1am Nashville time. Needless to say I was started to get tired quick. We went through customs, got our baggage and boarded a bus to take the drive to Berwick upon Tweed which is actually in England. We got to our hostel and found out that the rooms wouldn't be ready for hours. We were sent off to roam the town until later in the afternoon. I was about ready to drop but we rallied and went to explore.



 The toilets are way different over there.....so I took quite a few pictures of them...I guess Im odd.




I wanted to try fish n' chips since I mean how many Americans have heard of that over the years. It just seemed like the thing to do. We found a shop went in and I talked the waiter into giving us some free haggis bites to try. That was also one of the things I told myself I had to do while over seas. I loved it, everyone else was a little grossed out by it.










By the time we finally got to actually get into our hostel I was beyond tired, I also didnt want to just pass out either since I knew itd make dealing with jet-lag harder. I tried very hard to at least stay awake till dinner. The rest of that day mostly consisted of reading my history book for class the next day and wandering around the little town. Also figuring out how the money works. People there werent very nice or patient at how confused we were. 


I think Ill close this day with another toilet picture. I was just amazed by how sparkly it was...you cant really see it in this picture but I tried. This was at one of the few places actually opened past 5 in the afternoon. This town drove us all crazy at how early everything closed, the bars only were open till 12. We were still raring to go at that time.

New beginnings

Hey y'all

I am by day an esthetician. In the past few months since my return from Scotland I have been scouring the Craigslist ads to find a new job. Last week I was finally successful and was hired at the Wax Pot Studio here in Nashville. It's such a relief to finally have a job. Now I am just trying to network and promote myself as much as possible to get the word out that I am in my new spot and ready for clients. So if anyone lives here or knows anyone that does and needs waxing, facials, spray tan or any of the other services I do please don't hesitate to let me know. I need all the promo I can get. Also if any small businesses are interested in trading cards and helping to promote each other I am very interested in doing that too. 
Let me know!!

Little update

Hey y'all it's been a while again. I've just been so busy lately and I don't always want an audience in my life. But I'm back for a little while at least. I thought I'd do a post about my time abroad in Scotland and such. It was a pretty crazy experiance and while I had fun I think next time I'll go with friends instead of a bunch of strangers. I'll try to post that all this week. 


So yea that's a little update and I'm going to be trying to keep it up for now.

St Pattys Day

I am so random at picking up on this blog. I thought I might pop back on and write a little.
I have been back in school now, going on my second semester. I was studying for Vet Tech but I am not sure if I will continue on with that in my next semester. I love animals but do I really want to be underpaid to clean up after them the rest of my life? Do any of yall know Vets/vet techs and can give some advice?
 I also have been interning at Waldens Puddle which is a wild life animal rehab center here in Joelton Tn. It is definitely ALOT more work then I originally thought it would be. The staff there are saints and deserve more then they get for real.



There are a few pictures of some of the animals I cared for while working. It was a rad experience that is for sure but I learned I def. do not want to work at a place like that when I graduate. Its good work and someone has to do it but I like to play with animals and you cant really do that with the wild ones haha. Prolly a stupid reason but I guess that's part of why they make us do internships so we can see if we really want to do this or not. I did love getting to feed the baby flying squirrels. They are so soft, kinda like sugar gliders.

OOOh also I got accepted to study abroad this summer, so this June I will be heading to Scotland for a month. Words can not describe how excited I am to finally be going to see where my family is from. I can not wait! I am gonna try haggis and learn to speak Gaelic and see castles and and and I dont even know what else but its gonna rule. 


Other then that life has been pretty quiet. Just studying a lot and hanging out with my dog. I am ready for summer break and maybe will be able to have a life again. This semester has really been kicking my butt. The weather has been so nice all I want to do is ride my bike and hangout outside all day long.

Life

I really suck at bloggin dont i??? I just cant find the time. I miss it though I do. I sometimes realize I dont want to share my life with the world and have to take little or large breaks.
Life has changed so much since the summer. I need to sum it all some time for the few people that are still hanging on and following me.

Random road trips

I decided out of the blue last Sunday night that I needed to visit my sister in Savannah Georgia. I hopped on a Megabus and 4 hours later I was in Atlanta where my sister was coming to pick me up.  Have y'all ever heard of Megabus? I just found out about it not too long ago. It's amazing and so so cheap!!  I'll be posting a more thorough blog later on about my trip. I just got home yesterday and I am already wanting to plan my next trip.

Stitch Fix part 2

This is my second Stitch Fix order and I will say I wasn't quite as happy with it as my first order. I actually didn't even request this box, they are still in Beta phase so every once in a while they do make mistakes. I love their customer service, they do everything they can to make sure you are 100% happy with them. 
I didn't love the skirt, tried it on but with Tennessee 100 + weather a long skirt isn't something I will ever wear. The vest I really liked but the price was about 60$ and that's just too much for me to spend when I'm sure I can find something similar at another shop. The scarf I also liked but it was too expensive for my taste, the same with the dress. It looked amazing but it was a tad tight and definitely too expensive. Lastly I liked the shirt they included until I tried it on and it looked horrible on my body type. Don't you hate when that happens, you love something until you try it on. 
Overall this could of been a better box but they are still learning what I like so I cant be mad at them. I cant wait to get my next fix.
