Reflection - My Study Abroad Year at UC Berkeley

From Samantha:

I am now sitting back at home, my study abroad period behind me, thinking back to this time last year. I can’t help but envy the younger version of myself as i tried to come to terms with the excitement and nerves which were beginning to take hold as the day of my departure drew near.

My California adventure is hard to sum up in words.  There were times when the American system frustrated me and i had to learn the hard way. My run in with the underage drinking law was one of these less enjoyable experiences.

It did not take long however for American influences to start rubbing off on me. I developed an unhealthy love for pumpkin pie and coffee and my vocabulary became infiltrated with American jargon. Words such as ‘jumper’ became ‘sweater’, ‘boot’ became ‘trunk’ and ‘pavement’ changed to ‘sidewalk’.
