After arriving in London last Wednesday morning I’ve quickly gotten used to the culture I’m surrounded by like the rush to get on the tubes, minding the gap, injecting coffee into my system around the clock and wearing a ton of black everyday of the week. I was prepared for the rain I would endure but definitely not the freezing temperatures that are highly unusual in late May. Overall, I’ve loved every second I’ve spent in this city so far. It’s so metropolitan and growing so much everyday. The diversity is such a wonderful thing to immerse yourself in especially as an almost graduated college student about to be out in the real world with a real job. I plan to update my blog as much a possible and share everything I’ve learned and done here at GRNLive!
So far, there’s been a lot of news coverage involving the Woolwich attack that happened two days ago. With the BBC and Sky News showing constant coverage of the attack, I’ve been able to see the full timeline of events and learn more about the soldier that was undeservingly attacked in broad daylight. With news breaking so fast via social media outlets, I’ve found that my knowledge of how to use Twitter, Facebook and more has helped my experience at GRNLive so much already and will be useful since news breaks the fastest on these kinds of outlets!
Stay tuned for more updates!
