So, I've been thinking quite a bit today about the whole study abroad mentality cycle. Apparently when students go abroad, they tend to have this period a bit after they've arrived in their country of choice when they hate everything related to that country. They hit a period where they want to turn around and head back home because nothing is working out.
Luckily, I have yet to hit that mark in my time here in Wales *knock on wood*. To be honest, I absolutely love it here. I don't want to go back to the States. Don't get me wrong; I love the United States and I will always be a Texan at heart, but I have never felt so at home or so alive as I do here. Yes, there have been a few snags (it's taking me about 3 weeks to get a bank account set up with money in it... I've had to bum so much quid off of folks so I can survive... it's been a royal nightmare!), but I love it here. I feel as though I've always been here, and I feel as though I should always be here. I get so depressed when I think about next year!
What does that lead me to? I believe that once I get my undergrad degree I will move back out here for my masters. I seriously never want to go back.
Well, that's just been a short entry on my thinkings! I'll update more when it's not 2:13 AM... I am quite tired!
