1 year in america!!

cannot believe i am writing this post already. today marks my 1 year anniversary of living in the states!!! :D saying it has flown by is a huge understatement, in one way it feels like i only got here yesterday but in others it feels like i have always been here. it has been an amazing year, i have meet so amazing people and done some fab things. moving over to america is the biggest thing i have done and i am so pleased i did it. here is a little list of my favourite things...

1. making so many new fab friends
2. living with a lovely family
3. going to new york city for orientation
4. working with 3 gorgeous boys
5. visiting canada
6. swimming in the lake on sunny afternoons
7. moving all by myself, miss independent now lol
8. frozen yoghurt and Starbucks afternoons
9. celebrating american holidays 
10. having another year left to fill with more adventures :D




today my friends and i went out to celebrate the one year anniversary with a classic typically american dinner at johnny rockets. when i first got here my roommate from new york and i went there all the time so we decided we had to go back there for our little celebration :D

      I really want too move away for a while, its just pretty scary too think about. but if I did I'm sure it would be amazing. :)

    3. its definitely the best thing i have done, yeah it can be scary doing it all by yourself but if you do things through an agency (whether its linked to your job or just a tourist one) you get loads of help :D
