    6 months until real life...
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    Exactly six months from today I will be at my college graduation.. Seriously, how the hell did that happen?! Aren’t I still a little first year wandering around campus looking for my classes? I somehow went from that to the old seniors that seemingly have everything together. It’s weird to think that I’m that person now, [...]

  • A "wee" post (not really, but I'll try)

    Grassmarket in Edinburgh
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    So this is going to be a wee post in honor of my most recent trip: Scotland. I spent this past weekend in Scotland, and I have to say, it was incredible. I really wish that we had had longer to spend there, because I loved the trip so much and loved what we saw. I [...]

  • Adventures in Cambridge

    Courtyard of Queens College
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    After about a month and a half, I think I can safely say I’m very well-adjusted to being in London as a student. The last time I posted, I hadn’t even started classes yet, and now here I am in the middle of week 5 of classes! It’s been really interesting to see the differences in [...]

    LONDON!
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    Hello UVM! I hope everyone’s semesters are starting out well and you’re all having a good time! This semester, I’m doing something a little different – I’m studying abroad in London! Woo! I’ve been here for about a week, and so far it is absolutely amazing. I’m studying at the University of Westminster and taking [...]

  • Two weeks left already?!

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    I feel like I write about the same things around this time of year, but it’s that time of year where there are two weeks left in the semester and I can’t believe how fast the year has gone by. Seriously. It’s the end of my junior year? I remember the end of my senior [...]

  • London 2011

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    I’ve officially been accepted to study abroad in London for Fall 2011!!!! I applied through Arcadia University’s College of Global Studies, and I’m going to be at the University of Westminster, which is right in London. The easy part (all the application stuff) is done – now comes all the paperwork: picking classes, making deposits, [...]

  • Is more snow really necessary?

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    Ok, I know that since I go to school in Vermont, I should be used to the snow and potentially like the snow. Only one of those is true. Yes, I am used to the snow – I’m originally from NH, so winter isn’t really a new concept for me. However, I only like the [...]

  • Less work, but more work?

    Less work, but more work?
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    Somehow, through all of my goals and conscious decisions to do less work this semester and not spread myself too thin, I’ve still managed to get myself right back involved with lots of work. I’m feeling at this point me doing slightly too much work is inevitable, and that’s just who I am. Mind you, this [...]

  • Really really really cold....

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    Hi all, I am well into my Christmas break, and loving it. This break was much needed after the end of this semester. I had sooo much to do… I had one really big project for the end of the semester for my College Media Practicum (the class that I get credit for working at [...]

  • The Next Top Chef - UVM style

    The Next Top Chef - UVM style
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    I think my favorite thing about living off campus is doing my own cooking. Don’t get me wrong, campus food is more than acceptable – but it does get old after a while. My family is really into cooking and trying new recipes so when I got my apartment, doing my own cooking was one of [...]

  • Time for break, thank goodness!

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    At long last, the time has come for Thanksgiving break. This is the first break that we’ve had since school started, and I’ve decided that this break is what I’m thankful for this year. I’ve been so busy this semester, what with classes, the Cynic, and other design work on the side. I’ve pretty much [...]

  • Long time no blog!

    At The Courier Journal
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    So it’s been a little while since I’ve had the time to do this, so I apologize for not keeping up with it for all you avid blog readers out there I just got back from a trip to a journalism conference in Kentucky with all the media groups at UVM. Three people each from [...]

    Chilly nights, warm days
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    It must be fall. It’s cold in the mornings and warm in the afternoons. Scarves and sweaters are perfect at 8am, but a little much around 3pm. Though it is a little inconvenient when it comes to dressing, I love this time of year. This past weekend was really great. My parents came up to [...]

  • Back in Beautiful Burlington!

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    It’s mid-September, the leaves are turning, and the nights are chilly. That can only mean one thing: I’m back at UVM. After a long break from blogging, I’m back and ready to go. A lot has happened in the past six months. I’m a junior, and I’m living off campus which is fantastic. I absolutely [...]

    The Cynic
    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    I don’t remember if I’ve talked about this before, but I’m the layout editor for the school paper, The Vermont Cynic . After a week or so of transitioning into the position, I adjusted and now it’s great. I’ve been recruiting new people to join the layout team, and I now have six people working on layout, [...]

  • Not a teenager anymore!

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    Yesterday was my birthday and I turned 20! It’s exciting to think that I’m not a teenager anymore. I was driving around with my sister during break and she turned to me and said “You’re going to be two decades old!”. I never really thought of it like that before, but I suppose it’s true. [...]

  • February in VT = No Snow?

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    I’m pretty sure that I’m the only person in Vermont who is happy about the lack of snow on the ground right now. I like winter, but I usually only like it for about a month. Then all the snow gets gross and dirty, driving is difficult, and I get sick of being cold. There [...]

  • Journalism...

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    UVM doesn’t have an official ‘journalism’ major, which is one thing that I hear people comment on frequently. However, the university does have classes that are journalism/media based. I am in two of these classes: News Writing Across Media and College Media Practicum. News Writing Across Media is exactly what it sounds like: a course [...]

  • Only Four Semesters Left?!

    Amanda Kathryn Hayward on Amanda's Blog
    So over vacation I was at the dentist. Let me first say that going to the dentist, though I know it is necessary, is not my favorite thing in the world. I was sitting there getting my teeth cleaned and the dentist was talking to me–on a side note I’ve always thought that that is [...]
