Still in America but ready to go!

Sorry for the let down if you are actually reading this and thinking I'm out in the world with important things to blog about.
I'm not.
In fact, I'm sitting on my mom's bed right now begrudgingly creating this blog because of a few people that think it's necessary to have one if you fit into one of the following categories:
1. You are married. #1 reason for a blog and probably the main reason I haven't written in my other blog for 2 years.
2. You cook (or do some other domestic activity that you think everyone can and should benefit from).
3. You are traveling the world and assume everyone wants to know what you are doing all the time... because you are that interesting.
Apparently I fit into that last one.
Ok, ok... so I do think I'm that important alright?
Anyway, I know my title isn't that creative. It's because I don't care. Everyone's blogs have cutsy titles and to be frank, I think most of them are dumb. This blog is about my study abroad in London. When I get home, I'm going to stop writing in it. Any of the 5 of you that are going to read this know that this is how I am: mostly cynical about most everything. ;)
So here it is. I am not quite sure how it works. Do I add you? Do you add me? I am a facebooker. That seems more simple... but whatev. If anyone would like to help me out in this department that would be wonderful.
Apart from the cynicism in this post I have to say two things. First of all, I am extremely grateful for my friends and family. I have felt so blessed over the last couple of weeks, being able to see and spend time with so many amazing people that all care about me. I love you all and my life is so enriched by each one of you. I wouldn't even be able to do this study abroad without my mom and dad, ALL of my grandparents (especially Carla who gave me the idea and quite a bit of something else to get me going), and all of my supportive friends. And a special shout out to Sara for getting me excited when I was scared to apply, scared to go, scared to pack, and scared of everything else. I miss you Sar. And I know you're one of the 5 that will read this. :) Second is this: I am SO excited to travel to England and around Europe. I have been studying English at BYU for 2 years now. What a better way to end my studies than to experience the world I've read about for so long. I can't wait to become a part of it and learn a world outside my own.
Thanks for reading! Next time, I'll be in LONDON.


  1. Nikki, the best reason to keep a blog is because you are funny and people like reading about you.

    I cant wait to hear about all of your adventures! And I can't wait for you to come and visit, if you are ever in the neighborhood. We would love love love to show you around Innsbruck

    Good luck~!

  2. Thank you for humoring me and creating a blog so I can live vicariously through you!!! We will talk today!!
