Family and friends, I’m officially off to England! Today marks the start of my graduate studies and (hopefully) the beginnings of an academic career. I am so excited to kick off the next chapter of my life, for as long as it may last.
For some reason, this move feels way more “permanent” than France for various reasons. If I end up staying in the UK for my Ph.D, I’ll be spending up to five years. Now, I’m just trusting in God for his provision every day, no matter what that looks like.
For those of you who don’t know where I’ll be living, (not London, as a good majority my American friends/family seem to think) It’s a city called York, about 2.5 hours north of London via train. It’s gorgeous and it has my dream graduate program. I’m excited to call it home for as long as the Lord lets me.
And with that, I’m off! Please keep me in your prayers. Wifi is going to be a bit spotty for the first week until I get tapped into the campus’ internet so there’s going to be some radio silence for a few days. But as soon as I’m able to get back to blogging, I will!
