If you don’t already know me, I’m Ali. I’m an Irish girl who is currently spending a semester studying in New York City. I have created this blog as part of my social media class but to be honest I have always been interested in blogging. I love to follow bloggers and some of my favourites include Retro Flame, Damsel in Dior, Something Navy and of course my cousin, MakeupbySaz.
It has always been a dream of mine to live in the United States and it’s hard to believe I am fulfilling that dream of mine at such an young age. I have been given this wonderful opportunity to study here through my degree back home in Ireland. Many people doubted me and thought I was too shy and that I would never be able to survive on my own over here, and I actually asked myself those questions too. However, I was determined not to let that get in my way. It was a big step for me but it has been the best decision I have ever made.
The last week I spent in Ireland was a tough one. I never knew how hard it would be to say goodbye to my family and friends. I wouldn’t consider myself an emotional person but that week was definitely hard.
However, FaceTime has been such a great way to keep in contact with everybody. It makes it hard to believe that they are actually over 5,000km away!
Anyway I think you will have had enough of my rambling for one post. I will try my best to keep this updated whilst I am in New York (and who knows maybe I will continue when I get back home too!).
I hope you have enjoyed my first post.
