The second week of our year-long photography series. This past Saturday we celebrated Bethany’s sixteenth birthday party, and since we were all together, we’ll only have one photograph.

So Basically

Hey, everyone, Krysta here. (My first post, finally!)

Since I’m out of high school, my posts won’t be the same as Bethany’s or Maddie’s. I guess that’s one of the good parts of not being the same age, we’ll always have different things to say–especially because we’re so different as people.

So anyway, I think my first post is going to be about this conference I went to recently and how it’s related to moving to England, okay? Try to follow along, even if it makes no sense.

So I went to one of a series of conferences called Culture Shift organized by YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in mid-August. It was a lot of fun, more fun than I’d dared to hope it would be. It was also how I met a lot of really great people from outside this area–England included. (Do you see where this is going?)

One of the girls from England was named Hannah and the both of us got on really well, though I won’t pretend we became the best of friends or anything. She was liked that I knew a lot of British terms and admired my talent (among other things, I’m sure), and I liked that she was British and full of life (and funny stories). She gave me a lot of tips on studying in England and navigating the whole thing, which was really nice of her to do. In return, I didn’t refuse her when she asked me to sing something for her–a fair trade. (Don’t judge me.)

So the point is that somewhere between the prophesying and the evangelizing, she told me that Liverpool is one of the best places to study theatre because of all the cultures coexisting in that one area. So now I’m going to look into colleges in that area for the 2015-2016 school year. And here’s the best part: Hannah told me college is only six months out of the year. That means you get half a year in between semesters to do whatever you want (provided you save your money).

In conclusion, I’ve got friends in English places so I think we’ll be alright.
Sorry if this was confusing. Bye.

“Started From the Bottom Now We’re…”

… Here?

Hello, everyone. This is the first official post of the “London Bound” blog. And this is the part where we explain what, exactly this blog is about and what we’re doing.

  • First off, London Bound is run by three American girls, two of whom are still finishing high school. You can get to know us on our “About Us” page.
  • Second, this blog is about one thing, and one thing only: our dream to live and study overseas in London, England. We started London Bound to document our progress; how we plan to work hard, study hard, and save money to achieve our set goal. Most, if not all, of our blog posts will have to do with our different methods and ideas.
  • Unfortunately, we can’t really tell you how often we plan to post here. It depends on whether or not we have anything to share, but I can assure you that our content won’t be too scarce, since there are three of us to keep this thing up and running.
  • You can always contact us with any questions or requests, using any or all of the information on our contact page. We don’t bite!

That’s really all we have to say for now. Each future blog post will be written by one of us individually so you learn about us separately and really get to understand what we’re doing here. See you soon.

Krysta, Bethany, & Maddie.
