I’m here!

Posted on September 20th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Hey everyone! I arrived to Aberdeen on the 17th.  I have been so busy since I got here I only now realized I never updated my blog with my arrival. After arriving at the airport I was able to shuttle to the University with other students.  I picked up my key and a student volunteer helped […]

At the Airport!

Posted on September 16th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Rise and Shine!  I’ve currently been at the airport waiting for my flight for about an hour now.  Getting through Security was a bit interesting today because they wanted me to go through the body scanner.  Which I kindly opted out of.  So there I was waiting for my pat down while they searched through […]

Almost There..

Only a few more days until I leave for Aberdeen.  I still have all of my packing to do.  It’s pretty overwhelming trying to pack for a year, but I am trying to take it one step at a time.  Yesterday was September 11th and I spent the day remembering with my mom and grandma.  […]

Two Weeks!

Posted on September 3rd, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Down to the two week countdown!  I have been busy everyday that it’s been hard to even think that I won’t be here in two weeks.  I thought quitting my job a month early would give me plenty of time, but I haven’t even started packing yet.  Within the last month I had a going […]

28 Days..

Only 28 more days until I am in Aberdeen!  It has already been a crazy month of change.  I put in my notice at my job, which feels weird.  I haven’t been unemployed since I was 15.  It felt strange turning in all of my equipment.  On my last day of work it felt like […]

Hello Everyone, Things have been moving along!  My Visa was issued in just a short week and I have already recieved it in the mail.  I was surprised something so expensive ends up as a sticker inside your passport.   After I found out my Visa was approved I had the strangest feelings.  At first I […]

96 Days to go!  I still have another three weeks before I can apply for my student Visa and I’m also waiting for an offer of accomodation from Aberdeen.  Other than that everything is falling into place. A friend of mine has a studio apartment I can live in starting in August here so I can save […]

Update..

Posted on May 16th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Hello Everyone! I have not forgotten about this blog, I promise!  I was waiting until I had some actual news to tell you all, but I figure I should at least say a quick word. As of right now I am waiting on the official word from Aberdeen if they will approve my loans.  I […]

Dorms vs. Off Campus Housing

Posted on March 25th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Hello Everyone, Quick update:  I’m still waiting to hear about getting some loans.  I emailed Aberdeen and they are not going to look at loan entitlements until the end of April.  Guess I have to be patient.  As soon as I do find out about loans I have found a place to stay with a […]
