More about me:
Thanks for visiting my page! Here I will be keeping track of my study abroad trip to Europe from July 31 to September 9, 2015.

I am currently a 3rd year student at UC Davis majoring in Genetics & Genomics. Genetics has always been a field of interest to me and I find it so fascinating that every living thing on Earth is just a unique combination of the same 4 letters: A, C, G, and T. That's keeping it simple though. There's so much more to how life works which is why I'm working hard and studying to learn more. I hope with this blog people will be 1) entertained, and 2) be able to share these experiences with me. And maybe hopefully even learn a thing or two about the subject I'm so passionate about.

Thanks again for visiting my blog, and enjoy! :)

Day 21: Love at first site in the city of beautiful people, places, and things...

Friday was our last day in Cambridge which came waaaaay too fast. I felt like I left a little of my heart there because it the perfect city for me and I really didn’t want to leave yet. There was so much more for us to do, I could have easily stayed for another 2 weeks. I really hope that I built bridges during my stay that will lead me back there sometime in the future. It’s a fantastic school and overall just great atmosphere that anyone lucky enough to study there will never want to study…

Day 19: Catching Up

So it’s been a while since I last wrote. I feel like I keep saying that but this time, it’s like really true. This last week has been so busy with studying for a midterm this Friday, taking small day trips here and there, and just trying to enjoy Cambridge for the last few days I’m here. It’s been an adventure, and I’m really disappointed it’s coming to an end, even if I do get to go to the supposedly amazing city of Stockholm.

The day after I last wrote was Friday, and basically that…

Day 13: California is in a drought; London is definitely not

As the days go by and class is getting more intense, it’s hard to try to keep up with the world outside of this program. And so, even though I’ve basically given up on this ‘every day’ blog, my new goal is to write at least every other day, just so I can try to have more time to enjoy myself, but also so I can have more things to write about when I actually do write.

Yesterday and today were two totally different experiences and so much has gone on that it’s all very exciting and also…

Day 11: Finding Motivation

I really can’t believe it’s already been 11 days.

Time keeps going by too fast, and even though I’m trying to enjoy it all, I’m learning that 4 weeks for a class is really intense. It feels like it’s been nonstop for the past 3 days because, well, it basically has been.

These first few days have been split up in almost the same way: breakfast, class, tea break(!), class, lunch, class, tea and coffee break, and then tutoring/”free” time. That “free” time is basically time to try…
