believe it

1, 2
life has been so ridiculously crazy. but then again, if it wasn't, it wouldn't be life, right?
i finally took photos of my apartment. but my phone is being mean & won't send them to my email. ergo no photos yet. :/
& my first chapter of my thesis is due in a week - very scary stuff! (seriously! i am basically writing a book about a project/study that i am doing all on my own. wow.)
& i really can't wait to tell you about it. but it must be a secret for now!
but i do have a happy tidbit of news...

i bought a plane ticket to london!! two whole weeks. i am so stoked. i almost can't believe it is happening. i have been planning & dreaming & wanting to go to europe since forever. it will be this january (cold! but that's ok : )) i am meeting up with nicola who has so graciously offered to take me around her land! also, we are planning to make a tiny trip to paris too!!
so, i need your help! for those of you who live in england or paris (or have travelled there!), do you have any tips, recommendations, or things i absolutely must do/see?? please let me know : ) who knows, maybe you may even want to show us around your town yourself!

also, another tidbit of news: you really need to see 50/50. i personally loved it & am planning to own it as soon as it gets released. i have had many close ones pass away from cancer & it is just the right enough of rawness, realness, & comedy (which you definitely need when dealing). 
alright, i think that's it for now. be sure to leave any trip suggestions in the comments!!


mackensie perry: totally agree with you!

nicola: you definitely must see wild target. you will love it! 

natalie, shelbyisms, & amy : thank you ladies!! : )

mieke willems: haha yes : ) travelling will never be the same.

brynna: thank you darling! wild target is definitely a "laugh out loud" movie : )

liska cole: yes i do! my sister & i just got an apartment there about a month or so ago. we will definitely try out that indian place. although, since my sister just got back from a summer in india, she is a little tired of indian food : )

carissa clark: yes i've seen never let me go! beautiful colors. & i think you've been blogging more than me now! haha.

pierre: hello! & why thank you : )


  1. Ah! Give Nicola a BIG hug for me! I hope you have a fun time in England and France!

  2. I really want to see 50/50... but I doubt that will be happening. Life is much too busy.

    BUT AHH! Seriously, the fact that you two are going to get to meet up and travel around to all of these fantastic places is just BEYOND awesome to me! :D

  3. I know exactly what you mean, I feel like I've just been too busy to do much of anything! Life really is crazy sometimes. Congrats on the trip, that sounds like such a wonderful time! And I cannot wait to see 50/50, I feel like I've been waiting so long for it to come out and now I just have to wait till I have some free time to see it!

  4. Yay! I'm so happy that you and Nicola get to meet each other!
    I can't contain the amount if happy I'm feeling :)

    I loved 50/50. It was the perfect movie for the particular day I saw it too. It really helped me through a few things. As I had just gotten news that a dear friend who we thought had cancer got test results back and was in fact okay. it was a rough week.

  5. Lina! It is so good to hear news of your adventures; and what adventures you have to tell us about! Yippy!

    Life seems to be getting thick for all of us at the moment; though its nice to steal a few moments back to catch up with on-line friends.

    Love to you!

  6. Enjoy Europe (I'm sure you will anyway)! That sounds like so much fun. :) I saw 50/50 with Amy and I enjoyed it a lot. Very good movie.

  7. Those are really nice pictures. :)

  8. You going to England? Awesome!!!! :D :D :D
    I wish I could give you some information about England but I've never been there. Sorry!
    I'd love to watch 50/50 since Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of my favorite actor but my hubby and I are visiting my parents in Korea and I'm not sure if it's playing here in Korea. I will have to check :D
    Thank you, Lina!
    Hope you are having an awesome day!

  9. So excited for you and Nicola, and can't wait to hear about your adventures! I am so, so hoping that I get to study abroad in London next fall.

    Also, 50/50 was just wonderful. I loved that they didn't try to take out the comedy because it was a serious subject, you know? They kept it very real.
