When I first started blogging, I loved writing every post and planning posts weeks ahead. These days, I miss weeks because I just can't be bothered. I feel like I get too worried about things like traffic and picture quality and what people might think when they read it (especially because basically everyone I know now knows about Sarah Smile), and I don't like it. I want to write about the things I'm loving and what I'm interested in at the moment, so even though I've got multiple travel posts all written up, today I feel like talking about my best mates…all the lovelies I get to live with while I'm here.
|The bae Finlay! Jk…we just laugh because when I uploaded our selfie to FB everyone had a fit and thought we were all coupley and commented loads of embarrassing things!|
|Some of the group! #cantstopgiggling|
|My American BFF Erin|
|Helena and Sally!|
|My best friend Caroline loves the word "Cheers," so I had them do this for her.|
|I'm obsessed with them…it's casual.|
This weekend, I've had loads of movie time, a few Fifa lessons, and spent too much time drinking hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music instead of doing coursework, but I've loved every minute of it.
|Tank Trouble is a game on the internet that I'm obsessed with. This photo was taken right before I beat both of them - at about midnight. #dedication|
|playing Fifa and listening to Taylor Swift…perfection.|
I feel so blessed that not only do I get to live out something that I've dreamed about for years and travel to places I've always wanted to see, but that I also get to spend my time with such precious people…plus, they're all total babes (; Studying abroad can be hard, and I miss my family and my friends at home so much, but I wouldn't change a thing about coming here. It feels a bit like summer camp, and I miss home, but I'm already dreading having to go.
