Well, its June 25th and I am finally back on American soil for good. I cannot believe it has been a year. Honestly, it has flown by, and made me realize all my fears about leaving for a year were unfounded. As I dealt with the the emotions of leaving Oxford after a year, I realized I am lucky to have the emotions at all: the deep relationships I was able to develop, the independence I fostered, and the fond memories I will have of my “second home” in the United Kingdom are things I will cherish for the rest of my life. I am ready to return to my senior year at Georgetown with a newfound appreciation for the Hilltop, and I am certain that it is not a goodbye to London in the scheme of my life, but rather a “see you later.” Thanks for following along this year, and I hope this helps prospective abroad students to better understand and feel comfortable taking the risk that a year abroad entails!
