Newcastle 365 Weeks 51 and 52: Done!

I know it’s a few weeks late (I’m still travelling), but this is officially the last Newcastle 365 post. I missed two days (and cheated on a handful of others), but I’m satisfied. I don’t ever want to do another 365 project, but I’m really glad that I did it this year. I love being able to look back on a nearly perfect daily record of my year in grad school and I know that I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life.

I’m certainly not opposed to doing another photography challenge, though. I’m interested in the 100 Strangers Project or weekly photo challenges, so you may see some of those. And even though my big year is over, I’m still going to keep blogging. I still have posts to catch up on from England, and I’ll have loooooootttttts of pictures to share after I get home from this trip. I also have some fun ideas I’m excited about, but I’ll save the details until I get them planned out a little better.

Until then, look! Pictures!

  1. Come visit us in Iowa when you get back? We have lots of agriculture in this state so maybe you can use your new degree to find a job here? In any case, we’d love to see you, but we aren’t able to get to Idaho anytime soon. Your parents get to see you first, of course! Your year abroad looked and sounded wonderful, Jess! That kind of adventure can be life-changing. I’m so glad you were able to go and pursue something you are passionate about in places you love with people who become good friends. We love you, too!

    1. Iowa does have lots of agriculture, and it’s one of the states I’m focusing on in my job search. We’ll see what happens. 😉

      I definitely loved my year abroad. I’d move back in a heartbeat if they could promise me summer. Haha!

      1. Oh, I love Austria! I went on BYU Study Abroad to Vienna for 6 months after my freshman year of college. It was a wonderful experience! It was also 25 years ago which makes me feel too old. I hope I can go back someday. Did you sing any songs from “The Sound of Music” in Salzburg? 🙂 Who are you traveling with, Jess?

        1. I would LOVE to go back to Austria! It was incredible. We did kind of sing some “Do Re Me” to ourselves as we played on the steps. Haha! I traveled with Leslie, one of my very favorite people in the world. We met at Philmont.
