America... is the continent we're on. Which the US is only a small part of.
And this is my vlog about some of my adventures here in Lincoln, Nebraska. Welcome to Impromptu
As you've noticed, this is a slightly different location to what you're used to. And this
is actually my first non-scripted vlog, so I have no idea of what I'm saying right now.
Not that I usually do.
So I'm sitting here outside, in the Quad, which until recently I didn't know it stands
for Quadrangle. And it's the first day of spring break, and it's eerily quiet.
For the first time in my life, I've left home for an extended period of time. I miss it
I'm studying this semester at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. It's a fun, but very,
very cold place. I had never been in any temperature below 30º Farenheit, or about 0º Celsius,
This fountain supposedly holds water at some point.
I've been keeping busy, not only with school, but with other activities. I joined the student
newspaper, the Daily Nebraskan, whose offices are here, in the Nebraska's Student Union,
along with a bookstore.
Here's my home. Here's the bookstore. Home. Bookstore.
You can imagine my happiness at that.
I'm gonna talk about stuff, while you watch pretty B-Roll footage in the background.
It definitely was hard to get used to living abroad. Although I have a meal plan, and I
live on-campus, the transition was hard. I fell ill most of the time, but I eventually
Uh, this is a cool bell tower. It once played Harry Potter music while I walked to class.
Harry's Wondrous World from the Philosopher's Stone soundtrack, to be precise. Or Sorcerer's
Stone, however you call it.
UNL is a good school, some classes are though. But academics usually isn't the focus here.
Sports is. This is the Husker's Stadium. They have sold out every game since 1962.
Oh, and I thought this was pretty cool. "These old gates are the last link between the old
and the new university, may they serve as a memorial to the past and a gateway to the
Okay, so I'm opening a door to the past, and in the past I find... uh... pillars?
Right now I'm using the spring break as a time to focus my energies and finish the semester
well. I've got a couple of fun activities planned for my last month here.
I cannot go inside right now, because it's not football season, and it's closed, but
there's gonna be an exhibition match on April, and I'm really looking forward to that. I
guess watching football is part of the American experience or something?
Lincoln is not a big city; its population is 10 times smaller than my home town's. So
I decided to use my free time to explore some of it.
So I'm here at a capitol, which is the tallest building in Lincoln, Nebraska. It's so tall
that I can't even be in the same frame as the whole of it. And I'm not going to do vertical
The Capitol is a really nice building. It has a great West Wing vibe, if that's a thing.
I'll keep the B-Roll going.
People in the midwest are really nice. Also, their accent is pretty neutral, so I have
no problem understanding them, even if sometimes they can't understand me. But that's okay.
I've gotten over my accent issues. I can't say I've had the typical American college
experience... but then again, what does that even mean? I hang out with friends on the
weekends, I speak with a lot of people all day, and of course, there's loads of Netflix.
Okay, back to the capitol.
This is not a clock, by the way, it's for the elevator. A really old, really rickety
It's been an interesting experience. And I can't wait to see how it ends.
As Lincoln supposedly said, "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's
the life in your years."
