|I almost got run over by one of these bad babies...|
I was fortunate to be able to study at Hull University in the UK for a brief stint through the LSU study abroad program.
the entire experience was mesmerizing and truly one that I will never forget.
I lived in a dorm with people all over the world. They made an impression on me. The people made my experience great.
Every night, the Italians would cook dinners. We ate at different houses during the week.
Lately, I have tried to find my old friends, but to no avail. They are scattered across the world.
I pray for them often...
One of the things that struck me as unique in Great Britain was the terminology. Thus, this post..
Simply to share with you some fun British terms..
Cheers, my friends :)
