The end of study abroad is bittersweet, no?
Today marks exactly 1 month until I board the plane back to England.
After an amazing couple of days spent in Raleigh (NC’s capital) watching the ice hockey and eating at a restaurant featured on one of my favourite tv shows ‘Man vs Food’, I’m trying not to get on a downer about leaving America behind.
It’s definitely a case of mixed feelings. While I’ve spent the best few months of my life in the States, seeing and doing things I never imagined, at 19, little old me would be doing, I feel ready to go home. I feel so privileged to have seen so much already before I’m even 20 and I would definitely thank my family for encouraging me to get out and see the world! Living in America has been an experience to say the least and it’s taken living here to realise that America isn’t as amazing as I thought it was. Don’t get me wrong- its a wonderful, diverse country and Southerners are some of the nicest people I’ve met but I do think people have a misinformed perception of America, especially in Europe.
