I know, I haven’t written a blog post in like a month and a half. But I’m going to ignore that and focus this post as an ode to my favorite place on earth, London
This past semester has thrown everything at me. Happiness, sadness, heartbreak, stress, anxiety, excitement, culture shock, etc. I have grown more than I ever thought I would, learned more about myself than I thought possible, and found a life that I can see myself living for the future.
For me, London became my current and future home. I can officially say that I will come back to London, for good. The sadness of leaving was so overwhelming for me. I became so attached to a place I only lived for 4 months.
My time in London will never be over. It was the best study abroad experience for me. There were many obstacles and hurdles that I had to swivel past and jump through but I have become a stronger, more self assured person because of it.
I lived without a meal plan, jetset across a continent, kept up with the bustle of a city, held a steady and consistent internship, had the hardest work load of my college career, and fell in love with the places I was going and people I was with.
I do not regret any part of this trip despite the hardships. The amazing experiences trump anything that could possibly hold me down.
It is overwhelming how this trip has changed my life and the best part is, it will continue to in the future. This trip will influence my decisions and life events forever.
This blog post may seem cliche and over enthusiastic but if you know me at all, you know I tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Thank you London for introducing me to my future. I will never be able to express enough the gratitude I feel for this opportunity .
I love you London, I am coming back soon.
God save the Queen! Ok, I'm done.
