I always thought I would be a â€śbig city girlâ€ť and while there are some things that are so incredible about living in the city, there are just as many things that I missed that just canâ€™t be replaced.
The city has great things to offer; history, art, crowds, public transportation, proximity to other destinations, wonderful parks, theathre, different English spellings and words ;-) and architecture. Those are all things I will miss (and my heated towel racks). This past year has been the hardest of my life and I have learned so much. 5 Months away from home is a challenge and an adventure and I learned a lot about myself. I wont forget the experience and I am truly thankful for it. But you can not replace friends, you can try but you canâ€™t. It is sad how relationships pull you away from those, I guess everyone learns their lesson on that and vows (ironic) to never let it happen again. I am so lucky to have a great group of friends to return home to.
