My three months of adventures in London!

“Far have I traveled and much have I seen…” November 6, 2011

I’ve been home for about three and a half days now, and I still can’t believe that my London adventure is over.  Those were seriously the FASTEST three months of my life.  I actually feel like I’ve been home for longer than I was in London!  The last few weeks I was there, I found myself getting anxious that I’d leave without doing or seeing something that I wanted to.  I kept asking myself if I should go to this park one more time, or visit that museum again.  In the end, though, I just had to stop worrying about it because I did a pretty good job of getting the most out of my trip!


I’ve been asked a few times what the highlight of my trip was.  I haven’t really been able to answer that, because I couldn’t pick just one.  Les Mis was fantastic, of course.  So were the deer in Richmond Park, and being out in the city at night, and all the FABULOUS candy.  Even school was better over there; being able to read about a particular time period and then go to a museum and actually SEE objects from that time really added to the experience.   Also… I SPENT THREE MONTHS IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY.  Not everyone can say that. 🙂


So….what’s next?  Finishing school, for one.  I’m done in December, so getting that out of the way is a priority.  I’ll need to go back to work at some point, but I’m trying not to think about that.  Don’t get me wrong; it’s not that I don’t WANT to work.  I just don’t want to have to settle for the same old crummy jobs that have made me so unhappy for so long, and I’m afraid I’ll have to.  Instead of worrying about that, though, I’m looking ahead to the book I want to write about my trip.  It’ll be satisfying to actually put time and effort into writing about everything, and writing it well.  In all honesty, I didn’t do that here.  Blogging was a pain more than anything (there were always so many other things I wanted to be doing), so I didn’t put the time into it that I would have liked.  Plus, there are one or two adventures that I DIDN’T write about.  That will have to wait until school is over, though…..as I said, finish that is my priority for now. 🙂  Who knows, though…maybe my book will be such a raging success that crummy jobs won’t even be an issue anymore! 😉


So…I guess that’s it for now.    Goodbye until my next trip! 😀
