Back to the US of A

For any devoted followers of this blog (mom? dad? anybody?), you may have noticed that I stopped posting for a month and then posted a whole bunch all at once! The reasoning for that is simple: the end of the semester got super crazy, then over the holiday break I got super lazy. And now we’re here – the weekend before my spring semester starts back in California.

Now I couldn’t just leave this blog without a little bit of reflection and at the very least some closure, so here it is. This is it. My time in Oxford is really over. May I just say: reverse culture shock is completely real and it completely sucks. I miss England so much that it hurts me just a tad inside. In fact, even writing this right now is making me uncomfortably emotional. From my tutors and everyone I met to the amazing city I came to love to everything academic and nonacademic I learned, I couldn’t have asked for a better study abroad experience. I’ll keep it short and sweet; Oxford, I love ya and I hope we’ll meet again some day.

Goodbye Oxford.

Goodbye England.

To anyone and everyone that joined me on my journey, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading and for all of your support. And if you just can’t get enough, stick around! Now that I’m back in California this blog might get a face lift; only time will tell! Until then!

  1. It is approaching three years since Oxford, you have your BA, a masters degree in English, and now are working on a second masters degree in Education. Have you had a chance to reflect back on your semester aboard? If you had to do it all over, would you? Was it a positive experience? Did it move you forward in your studies? Would you recommend it to others? What was the most valuable part of the experience?
