London details

Ok - ready for some London updates?

First things first, I will be attending Kingston University which is about a twenty minute train ride from Central London. It's right on the River Thames so it should be lovely come spring and summer. {I love how I use the word 'lovely' all the time now.} I really loved the area while I was visiting this past Thanksgiving. Despite the fact that it was cold and a bit dreary, the streets were still lined with warm quaint homes, children bundled in coats and cute coffee shops and cafes. I'm hoping to fit right in.

On second thought, I think it would be more fun to stand out as the 'Exotic American'... {Is that an oxymoron?}

I'll be getting my Master's in Publishing which is something that I've always wanted to do. I've been a writer since birth...ok, since the age of eight, and ultimately, I would like to be the editor of a lifestyle magazine for Christian women.  I have been thinking of this idea since I was literally sixteen and now more than ever, may passion and vision is growing and being realized a little bit more each day. And, it's not that I don't like Glamour, or Elle or Cosmo, but I don't want to be constantly bombarded with sex tips and 'Ways to Make Him Moan,' articles. I want something a little deeper and I think a lot of other twenty-somethings and thirty-somethings would agree. {Well, while we're in our single years at least. Believe me when I get married I plan on making up for LOTS of lost time.}

But, back to London.

I have a lot of paperwork to sort through and make sense of but thankfully, I have found a most trusted resource in Across the Pond, which connects students from around the globe to Universities in the U.K. This organization is totally free and reputable, which I made sure of, and will assist a student along every step of the way from submitting your application, Visa paperwork, program selections, etc, until the day you arrive on campus. I have the best agent, and we have created a great working relationship.

I can't wait to give you all more details and updates about my big move. This is such an exciting albeit kinda scary, thing for me.  Pray for me, wish me luck and stay tuned!
