It’s finally winter ! My university’s campus looks incredible covered in white, and I genuinely feel like I live in a snow globe every time there’s a new snowfall. I couldn’t be more excited to see the massive amounts of beautiful snow and get to enjoy my favorite season once again. Also, my favorite clothes reside in my winter wardrobe, so I’m pretty excited to wear those again! Scroll below to see some gorgeous shots of NAU from this past week.
If you know me, then you should already know that I am a complete sucker for anything aesthetically pleasing, especially if it has to do with Fall. For as long as I can remember, Fall has been my favorite season. Everything old is essentially dying and starting to fall off of trees (and my worrisome mind) , and the leaves changing really signify new beginnings for me each year. Thus, to celebrate this new season in my life, I went to the prettiest pumpkin patch in Flagstaff, Viola’s, with some great company.
Something that I look forward to every single October in college is the Homecoming Carnival that ASNAU, our Northern Arizona University Student Government, hosts for the students for free. There are all types of fun rides, free popcorn, hot chocolate, and cotton candy, and a multitude of fun and silly games to immerse yourself in. I love every second of it.
I met Mia Pique during my freshman year of college at NAU, since she just so happened to be the lucky random roomie that got assigned to me. I thought I wouldn’t like her. I feared that she would be crazy… or rude… or loud and impolite. I thought she could be mean, or maybe she would hate me, and I’d feel bad in my own dorm. None of that happened. I didn’t even expect what happened.
Since I just finished my Autumn term at University of Essex in England, and I was on exchange from Northern Arizona University with this whole study abroad experience, I thought it would only be right for me to discuss the major school system differences between the U.K. and the U.S. for those who are curious or wanting to study abroad themselves.
