You can find my most recent updates on tumblr and instagram. I'll also be adding new videos to my YouTube channels soon. Let me know if you have any requests.

I went to a networking social for doctoral & specialist psychology students.
I decided that I'm parting ways with these braids, but between coursework and classes from Monday to Sunday this week, I won't have time until next week.
Some of my colleagues
I wasn't able to get more photos outside of the restroom because the staff said, "I'm sorry, we don't allow cameras like that in here." Disappointing, but I assumed that it's because they had a paid events photographer with a similar camera :/
Driving with my friend, after a wonderful time at church.
Eating a snack from home...
Images ranging from my most recent events, to events from a week and a half ago.
The most recent thing that I did was go to the pool, and decorate the concrete with my artwork.
No, this is not my personal stash.
This is what fastening a shoe looks like, mid-motion.
NY Cheesecake Frozen Yoghurt, mixed with Pina Colada frozen Yoghurt, mixed with French Vanilla Frozen Yoghurt, topped with strawberries, coconut flakes, and sweet crumbly crumbles. I took three bites while in the car and then closed it with the intention of eating it later. When I got out of the car, it landed on the ground face down :(
There were sharks in this water. One actually leaped out and dived back in...apparently it was feeding time :/
My first real taco, ever
My first guacamole experience, ever. It tasted good...but the texture felt weird.
I was waiting to go to a pool party that I ended up not going to.
I've been practising my driving here...automatics are tooo easy, like easy to the point of being difficult for someone like me who drives a manual...at stop lights I'm conscious of the car rolling back...but since there's no clutch control or gear changes required, there's no need to do the things that my brain does naturally. Not to mention the fact that the road rules are different here, and it doesn't help that 89% of these drivers don't follow them.
I've discovered that I can't eat pepperoni in this country. I was ignorant of the fact that in this country, they use beef to make their pepperoni. I don't eat red meat at all; I haven't eaten beef in at least a decade and a half. I ate this pizza...and boy, let me tell you..my body suffered.
I'd just like to announce; I am no longer homelessly living in a hotel. I am now housed. Thank God.
I am still homesick. I still miss my mummy. I still miss the London Underground, especially zones 1-6.
I want to go to Fashion's Night Out in London, just like I did last year; not in the city that I'm in. I still miss my relatives. But I'm settling in, and slowly adjusting to this new environment and culture. I'm enjoying school, which is the most important thing. I'm trying to embrace this experience, instead of resenting it. I've been told that it will get easier....I hope so.
I'm learning that just because you're exactly where you belong, doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing, it doesn't mean that it will be easy; giving up is not an option.
1. Find a long sleeve, v-neck, top that is of a reasonable length.
2. Step into the neck opening, and pull the top over your hips.
3. Wrap the sleeves around your waist.
4. Bring the sleeve ends to the front, and create a bow.
Are you a UK resident who would like to spend a day or two in New York City; and see the beautifully talented Lianne La Havas while you're there?
