back in the States

It’s been close to two month since I finished my master’s in Edinburgh. Life in the States has been interesting. I hope to write a longer entry on my experiences back home after two years abroad when I have more time. For now, I give you a “quick” status update.

After completing my dissertation in August, I returned to my hometown Seattle for three weeks. I moved to New York City late September, and will be based here for the next few months. At the moment, I am researching and writing about how to get a graduate degree abroad for Idealist.org and interning for the Recording & Archive Department at StoryCorps. I am also in the process of searching for a job in social media, cultural management, and/or non-profit.

You can take a look at my current projects and interests by visiting my personal website and following me on Twitter. You can also subscribe to my latest project: nyPhone.

nyPhone is a photoblog documenting life in New York City via the iPhone. This project was founded by two partners in crime: my sister Joy and me.

Even though I am no longer studying in the UK, I will update this blog intermittently. I will write an entry and perhaps create a podcast when I return to Edinburgh for graduation next month.

If you have any questions about studying abroad, please feel free to leave me a comment or shoot me an email. Thanks for reading!
