Goodbye, London

And just like that my time in London has come to an end. The past couple of weeks were spent finishing up classes and work, packing, and truly making the most of every final moment in the City.

Time is Tickin’

I cannot believe there are just 11 days left until my flight back to the US. Time is going so fast, as it has the entire semester, and there is still so much left to do. I have a few things on my bucket list, such as the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the British…

Crossing Things Off the Bucketlist

Getting back into the school/work routine wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was still difficult to get up earlier, and it certainly felt weird to sleep in my bed again. Perhaps it really hit me when the weekend came and I wasn’t in another country. In a way, it felt good…

It is still so surreal to be here. I am settling in, getting used to the work and class routine, using the tube stations, etc. I am very comfortable and feel confident in what I am doing. The adjustment period has confirmed things about myself that I already knew (routine and rhythm), but it also…

It’s London Time

I have been in London for just over a week, and so much has happened. It is overwhelming and exciting to think about everything I have done so far and everything that awaits me for this semester. It is amazing how much I have grown in such a short amount of time, and I hope…

London: Pre Departure

Well, here it is! The day is finally here. The day I have been both looking forward to and trying to prolong. Tomorrow afternoon I fly to Boston to meet up with my roommate, Dina. I am so excited to see her and to see Boston, as I have never been there before! I am…
