Song of the day: “Remember” by Liam Payne
Today is the day I was supposed to fly home from London, and it feels very strange having already been back for weeks. It was a beautiful sunny day in Southern California, and even amidst this lockdown I found ways to enjoy it. My time abroad definitely changed my life, and no matter how much I miss being in London, the knowledge that I will go back makes me smile. I thought I would feel sad today, but focusing on how much I’ve gained from the experience – Covid aside – is truly an incredible mountain of joy. My family and I sat looking through more trip photos tonight, and I finally feel up to writing in my blog again. It took a while, and I still don’t like having to drive instead of taking the tube, but I appreciate California in a new way. However, sorry Mom, London has my heart.
