Back in the States

It's been three days since I've been back in the States. I miss London very much but I'm not dwelling over it because I just know that one day I will return to the City. 

I feel so overexposed without the tall buildings and overcrowded streets. The following morning upon my arrival, I ran into five familiar faces within a four hour window. Such a small world.

I realize that I haven't posted anything about London in a month. I've been busy having the time of my life. ;) There were lows and many highs about this trip; overall, I'd say it has helped me in many ways. I've met some incredible people, and then on the contrary, I've met some not-so-incredible people...*Cough* my roommate, who drained every ounce of energy from me just by being in her presence. Anyway, I think I will miss the people in the city the most. I miss the men in fitted suits; it's really fun to see what color socks they're wearing...when they sit down, their pants flood, revealing their socks. I miss my favorite baristas at Cafe Nero and the people who work behind the counter at the school cafe lounge, especially "Potato Guy" and "Space Man". This morning I listened to "Stereo Hearts" by Gym Class Heroes (ft. Adam Levine) and it reminded me of them. I miss the accents! I keep expecting to hear some British lingo. It's so weird to not hear someone British.  Everything I miss about London will be something to go back to. I would like to complete Grad school there. 

From this trip, I've discovered that I really love to learn. I really love art and I love history. I want to always learn something everyday. I also have kept a journal. Since the beginning of summer, I have been journaling and during my stay in London, I journaled, and I plan on journaling for the rest of my life. 

Would I change something about the trip? Hm. I don't think so. I can't wait to return. : )
