I’m so sorry for the lack of update, I have been unbelievably busy here. I feel right at home, but balancing time between school work, CAS extra-curriculars and friends is proving more challenging than for what I accounted for.
It’s almost the end of first term, which is crazy. People who are going home in April are literally counting down the days. I keep saying to people that it feels like we have been here both forever and no time at all, and I guess this won’t really make sense to anyone who isn´t here, but it’s something that a lot of people can relate to.
I already feel like I’ve made the best friends in the world, and it sounds cheesy but this is my home. When I think about returning back to Oxford in April, it dawns on me how foreign I might look or sound to my friends an family. It’s scary that when I came here I had the opportunity to fill the gaps that I left at home with all the new people around me, but those I left behind haven’t necessarily managed to do the same.
I guess this whole post was just for a general update, as I have been absent for so long. It’s not because Í’m dying, it’s because I’m having an awful lot of fun.
I hope that before the end of term I will find the time to write about planning for midterm break, and explaining how mine went.
L0ts of love,
