Life Lately | July


I spent the first 9 days of July at home, spending my spare time alternating between family and friends. I went to the cinema as many times as I could to catch up on all the movies I missed while in Germany and I read a book a day, working through my stack of novels borrowed from the library. The remainder of the month was spent in Amherst, MA in a position working with international students. It was an exhausting two weeks but I was alongside some great people - including my Mannheim buddy Shannon - and it was a rewarding (if hot and sweaty) time in New England.

After spending all but 3-4 weeks of 2015 constantly surrounded by international students, I can honestly say it's strange thinking about returning to university and being once more surrounded predominantly by Americans. I've enjoyed learning about new cultures and I'm not ready to say goodbye to the continuous learning and go back to the old familiar. My time in Europe has changed the way I think about daily life and I know my adjustment of focus will carry on. But with the summer coming to an end, it's time to finally put the last 7 months behind me and look on to the next great thing.
