Exploring Newcastle: 2 months into my new life

Hello everyone,

It’s been a while since I last posted, but it’s been 2 months of getting used to things, lots of reading, getting over jet lag, and getting sick (for reals, I was sick 4 out of the last 7 weeks!) But, now I am feeling much better, still super tired but not jet lag, and I’m preparing to write 4 essays as my end of year exams. Newcastle has been a great city, very welcoming and the perfect weather for me. Not too much rain so far, but I know what’s coming soon. Every weekend for the first month I travelled to London for Church and now I have to opportunity to help plant the Birmingham site of our Church! 

I wanted to update everyone on what I plan on doing for the next couple of months regarding this blog and my YouTube channel! I plan on going back to making weekly videos of my adventures around the UK and hopefully Europe. I will also try to start a history vlog. I’m not sure when it will go live since I have a lot of planning to do for it, but it’s going to be awesome (at least to me LOL). I have a lot of planning to do, and much reading and writing to do before January, so I will go ahead and let you all enjoy some photos from my last 2 months in the UK!

XOXO,

Ascenett Stefanie


Countdown to Newcastle!!

Y’all! 

I hope everyone is doing well. I am here today because it’s official: my visa has been approved and I’m moving to the UK in 52 days!!! I just can’t believe it has already been a full year since I started this blog and I began the process of applying for graduate school in the UK! I don’t think I could have done this without the help of my family, my ATP advisor, and first of all, Our almighty God. Without his help none of this would be possible. I can’t believe my dream of going back to the UK and getting  a degree in European History is finally coming true. Let me tell you; I have been trying to go back to school since the moment I graduated from my bachelors and started my Disney College Program in 2014. Getting my masters has always been part of my life plan and I was not going to take it out. I tried going back to school for a second bachelors twice but it never worked, and then when I started the process for school in the UK everything just came together so well thanks to the Lord. For me, I believe things happen for a reason and if it doesn’t happen it means there is something better out there for you. You just have to believe in yourself at all times. Now I am just a few weeks away from leaving to make my dreams come true, and I could not be happier. 

Now that everything is coming along, I will be doing pre departure blogs taking about the process.

Thank you everyone!! 

XOXO,

Ascenett
