Pretend Like You Know What You’re Doing!

Hi! My name is Lexie and I have no idea what I am doing! BUT - I'm really really good at PRETENDING like I know what I am doing. This semester, I am lucky enough to be participating in a study abroad exchange program in Bilbao, Spain.

QUICK BACKSTORY: At the end of Summer 2015, I was preparing to uproot my life of youthful innocence & bliss to make the great leap into the scary and dark abyss that is known as "college". The time came for me to say a teary goodbye to a boyfriend, a family, and (most importantly) a cat. I was adamantly opposed to the idea of college and very stubbornly packed up my comfy, cozy childhood bedroom into lil crappy cardboard boxes.
