today was a great day to begin with. I mean, I only have 2 papers left to write this week, I got an A on a science test I didn't think I would do well on, and I won free Jamba Juice.

oh. and I got accepted to the

BYU London Study Abroad Program Fall 2014

so, yeah, 3 1/2 months living in london next fall? Sounds alright to me. I would say that today was the best day ever. You know how I've wanted to do a study abroad in London for the last, ohhhhh, 5 years? WELL. it's happening!! One email, some screaming for joy, then crying out of happiness, and BOOM. this girl is moving to LONDON!! you know what else this means? It means that I now have a justified reason for spending ten minutes every night before I go to bed reading blogs from girls on study abroad. fantastic.

I hope your day is going as fantastically as mine (:

  7. I did a study abroad in London Winter of 2012. It was the most incredible/amazing experience plus I hear they've remodeled the London Centre so you won't have 3 weeks of literally NO hot water! Icy freezing cold showers were the best. I kept a blog while I was there if you ever want to look: And I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about what to bring/what to see/just whatever. I love talking about it.

    1. And I also have about a zillion pictures on Facebook of really cool places in England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Italy, and Germany that you can check out if you're interested in taking trips to any of those places or want to see more than I have on the blog. We found a lot really great places to visit.

  8. congrats! my study abroad program changed my life and now i'm headed back to London in January to start a PG program me. :) Best of wishes and happy Christmas.

    Smiles, Joy Michelle
