So this is the first week of classes here at LSBU.
I am actually loving the buildings here!
They are very modern and all quite close.
I haven't really had "real" classes yet.
I will post about those this weekend after I have had them.
This post is based on my first class that is required for study abroad students.
It's called London: City of Change.
Basically I walk a lot and learn about London.
Coolest. Class. Ever.
Back to class.
We had to make a manifesto in class on the first day.
Our manifesto could be anything we wanted but it had to do with our time here in London.
I really loved the activity because it made me think about what I want to get out of this program.
I decided to revise my group manifesto and share it with you all.
So here we go.
I want to explore the parts that others look over.
I want to leave here a better and more open-minded person.
I want people to look at me after it's all said and done and be able to see the change in me.
I want that change to for the better.
I want to diversify myself and learn and love other cultures.
I want to also remember where I came from and what it has taught me.
I want to take what I have learned here and apply it to my life in the future.
I want to accept and love others no matter their differences.
I don't want to fall under a typical stereotype or put others under one.
I don't want to forget the friends and connections I made here.
I don't want to gain nothing from this experience.
I don't want to lose my sense of wanderlust.
I don't want to forget my friends back home.
I don't want to squander my time here.
So this is my manifesto.
I am sure by the time I leave here it will change.
I kind of hope not because these are all very important to me.
I suggest this to everyone.
It's cool to sit down and think about what you want out of life.
Some of your answers could surprise you.
Until next time,
