About Me

My name is Joyce and right now, I live in England. I am doing an MA in Film Distribution and Marketing, so for me, watching way too much TV and going to the cinema twice a week is called studying (I know, right?!) and hopefully, that will one day be part of my job. 

I am originally from Germany, but a pretty serious travel bug lives in my pants, which means staying in my hometown for longer than necessary hasn't crossed my mind a lot.

Loves Harry Potter, traveling, films, New York, french fries, writing lists, going to the movies, dresses, food and going out ♥

When I first moved to the UK, I was looking for any kind of information about studying abroad and I would have loved to stumble upon a blog like mine is today. Full of random diary entries, with tips and tricks on how to move/study/live abroad/UK/USA. I did obviously manage on my own, but who doesn't appreciate a little help along the way?
This is what I want to offer.

What is joyce goes?
This whole blogging thing started when I went to New York for a year. After high school I just had to take this gap year and I am so glad I did because it changed my life forever; Coming back to Germany afterwards to my old life was tough though- It just didn't feel right anymore.
2011 I got accepted at university in Edinburgh and it felt like a dream come true. Move out and just move to a completely new and different country was so exciting. 
So this blog adventure started and it changed from being in German to being written in English- which just feels so right anything else feels wrong. Hopefully someone will find this blog and find it helpful- either because they want to study in the UK, do Camp America or study abroad (because that's what I have always been looking for).

This blog is really about everything I see, eat or think about.
Films, traveling, music, my obsession with America, living in Edinburgh/Birmingham or in the UK in general, food and other shenanigans. I often write with tongue-in-cheek but be assured that I am pretty honest about everything. Whatever product or film or website I write about, I mean what I say.

I hope you enjoy reading this little blog and maybe even leave a comment somewhere
