A Beginner’s Guide to the London Social Scene

Moving to a new city, it’s hard to find out what is fun until you try it out. The social scene in London is electric and perfect for students. Here are some of my favorite nighttime activities that I would suggest for anyone new to London:

1. Tate Lates
Every last Friday of the month, the Tate Modern hosts Tate Lates. […]

    Venturing to the Parts Unknown: The Importance of Travelling as a Student

Venturing to the Parts Unknown: The Importance of Travelling as a Student

Before living in London, I haven’t seen many parts of the world, let alone destinations in Europe like most millennials. Even moving to London was a big step for me. After watching many episodes of the late Anthony Bourdain’s travels and seeing beautiful pictures of destinations in other parts of Europe on Instagram, I was motivated to move to […]

    Enjoying the London Summer While Working on Your Dissertation

Enjoying the London Summer While Working on Your Dissertation

When people ask me whether I am done with graduate school, some part of me wants to say yes, but I know that I have a huge dissertation looming over me and I can’t say I am fully done yet. Just saying the word dissertation overwhelms me. In retrospect, I know that I have the whole summer to work on […]

    Grosvenor House: Reflections From Living in a Graduate Student Hall

Grosvenor House: Reflections From Living in a Graduate Student Hall

Especially since I worked a few years after receiving my undergraduate degree, I haven’t lived in a student accommodation for a long time. I’ve already talked about why I chose student accommodation in a previous blog post, so this is all about my personal experience at Grosvenor House. There are many different halls a postgraduate student can live in. […]

Closing Thoughts on Summer Term Exams

Exams are finally over. I repeat exams are finally OVER. After braving 5 exams, I can finally say I survived exams and can now fully focus on my dissertation. Before I do that, here are some closing thoughts on summer term exams:

1. It’s never too early to revise. I have to admit, I didn’t start revising for some of […]

Keep Calm and Revise On: A Guide to Surviving Exams

The moment we have all been waiting for…EXAM TIME! Almost every seat in the library is taken, the queue for the nearby coffee shops are longer than I have ever seen them, and the weekends no longer feel like weekends. What an exciting time to be an LSE Student! (Not really.) Jokes aside, exam time can be considered a […]

Building Relationships at LSE

Moving to a new city is a challenge within itself, but what’s even more difficult is forming new relationships and friendships. Like many students I know, I came to the LSE knowing nobody. Since I’m a postgraduate student and already had a network of friends from college and high school, it wasn’t a priority of mine to make any friends […]

    The Process of Finding Housing in London: Why I Chose LSE Housing

The Process of Finding Housing in London: Why I Chose LSE Housing

Looking for housing (especially in a city where you have never lived in) is quite a daunting task. I don’t want to admit that I did this, but a year ago, I maniacally spent a couple hours on google looking for a place to live. I narrowed down my options to Residence Halls so I could not stress out […]

    I Survived The Beast from the East, But The End of Lent Term is Another Story

I Survived The Beast from the East, But The End of Lent Term is Another Story

I’ve lived in London for about 7 months and I surprisingly don’t miss my hometown of San Francisco as much as I thought I would. It wasn’t until Storm Emma hit London two weeks ago where I started missing the calm weather of San Francisco. To be fair, I have experienced snow after living in Washington, D.C., but this was […]
