Studying while abroad can be hard with the distractions of a foreign city, new friends, planning trips and many more. But, with a good location, it can be a little easier. With a ton of school work this week, I knew I needed to find a new place, just like my cubicle on the second floor for the lib at Bucknell.
I’ve walked by a cute cafe that never seems crazy busy plenty of times on my way to and from Norreport station, and I’ve grabbed a coffee to go from there once before, but never really sat down and did work. Finally this week I did, and I am so glad.
Cafe Nutid is an absolutely adorable cafe, that is two floors high (reason why I couldn’t see it was busy was because everyone was underground). Even though it has some amazing study spots, good coffee, and a chill vibe, one of the best parts is the meaning behind it all.
While waiting for my coffee one day I decided to translate a board that explained what Cafe Nutid was. It is a non-profit cafe, run by volunteers where all the profits for to fighting poverty around the world. That alone gave me 4 million more reasons to go there more often.
Even though studying epigentics isn’t the most exciting thing, it’s a little better with a good location.
