In case anyone was wondering, this is the progress they've made on "fixing my radiator" thus far.
What do I do, one might ask, when I'm not running around in the city,
spending lots of money, and taking lots of pictures, and collecting
memories to write here for the whole 3 people that will read about it
later? A very good question, indeed. I sit. Sometimes I read, or watch
someone else's movies, or listen to songs that remind me of being
younger, or watch the people on the other side of the building through
their windows, or eat biscuits, or take a nap... but mostly, I sit. I
sit and think about my life, and how I don't know what's going on, and
I freak out about it. Being here is hard... I mean, it's not scary by
any means, and I don't think I'm necessarily suffering from
homesickness or culture shock anymore, but I have SO much more time to
myself in my room than I ever had in Irvine.
HUGE geese by the lake behind my classrooms.
.. more time to think about
my priorities, and my relationships with everyone in my life, and
whether what I'm doing the right things.... blah blah blah, I'm sure
this is not exciting to read, I just wanted to make sure that my three
fans that read this know that I don't just run around the city all the
time... At least half of the time I am sitting in my room going crazy
and trying to figure my life out, and wondering what it's going to be
like when I go back, and trying to cope with how much I feel like I've
already changed in the one month I've been here... GAH.
In other news, Nathan and I took a little break from sitting in our
rooms and went on a walk in the park on campus. We originally went on a
search to go climb trees, but ended up trying to get ourselves lost in
the woods. We were partially successful. I feel really lucky that I get
to stay somewhere where I can enjoy the "English countryside," and be a
tube ride away from the middle of the city.
