I’ve been attempting to do a wrap up post for some time now, I mean, I got back to the states almost a week ago. Sorry. But its hard because I feel like as soon as I publish this post it will all be over. For real.
It is so good to be back but its also really strange. Because of the time change I’ve been going to bed at 9:00 or 10:00 and waking up oh so very early. The first morning I was back I went on a run at 6:30am and watched the sun rise. Am I growing up because I like the morning now? Oh no!
Its also really strange being back because I basically went from the most Christmas-spirited place to summer vacation. When its 80 outside I really just feel like laying out by the pool and drinking lemonade. Its wonderful, but weird. Personally, I would much rather wear one layer of clothing than five.
What else have I been doing since being back? Well, I went to the dentist three times, got a cavity filled, bought some new shoes since I lost(refer to past post)/threw away two pairs back in England, and organized my room like never before. Well, the organization thing is an ongoing project. I also went to Costco TWICE because I missed it so much.
I am so happy to be back. It has been incredible to be able to just pick up the phone and call people without having to arrange skype “dates”. I love it, and I’ve probably spent about, wait let me check, around four hours talking on the phone in the past few days.
I really miss England and the amazing, amazing people I traveled with this past semester. I learned so much. I gained so much. The person who got on the plane back in August had no idea all that was in store… That was cheesy sorry. But its true. Sometimes I’ll just remember little things that happened and my heart will ache because its over. Weird!
But if I’ve learned a little something in the past 20 (and almost 21) years of my life its that the adventure isn’t over! Its never over. Its always just beginning.
Thank you for following me through this time in my life.
