These photos are actually from Tuesday, and I had written a full post to accompany them, but instead of posting about my day two days ago, I decided these photos were much more relevant to what I had to talk to you about today. Yesterday, I went to talk to the second year ACS (American and Canadian Studies) students about their year abroad next year, and I talked to them about my experience at UMD. Talking to them almost made me cry, and I thought "oh what I would be you guys sat here, knowing you're going to be in the States in less than a year". And it was then that I realised there was nothing stopping me from moving back by this time next year.
So I've decided I want to move to Minneapolis.
I know I talked about moving to Chicago or New York, I talked about moving to London and I talked about staying at home and doing a journalism course, but nowhere feels like home like Minnesota does. As much as I love Chicago, I can't imagine being anywhere but Minnesota. It's my home. And there was always the risk of how lonely I would be in Chicago. Moving over to work isn't the same as moving over to go to school where you meet lots of people and get involved in all kinds of social events. In Minneapolis, I would never be lonely. I know lots of people there, and people I know have already given me ideas on who to contact and which jobs I could look at. Right now, it's a pipedream. But I'm going to see my personal tutor this afternoon to see what I need to do to make it a reality. I'm scared and excited and I don't know even if I might chance my mind in a few weeks. But right now, this feels right.

brogues- new look

The weather here has been gross the last few days, so I've gotten into take indoor photos more. On Monday, I planned to photograph my outfit but by the time I got around to it, it was pitch dark outside. We had our landing light fixed on Tuesday though, so I think this will be where my indoor photos will be over the colder months. I admit, it's not the best place in the world for photos and I way prefer outdoor photos, but it's not always an option.
You might recognise this outfit from my week in photos. It was just a cold looking day on Tuesday and my first thought was "pants". I am also crazy in love with this jacket. It's gorgeous and goes with everything. I still can't believe it's from Primark!
I have an insane amount of back-log on photos this week from our internet being down, so I should hopefully have enough pictures to update while I'm on work experience, which will be nice.
Have a great day- I hope it's less grey and rainy where you are!!
