Back In New York

How was it over a month ago that I sat in my room writing my “prepping for London” blog post?  How has a month gone by and how have I found myself writing the  “coming down from the emotional high that was one of the best experiences of my life” blog post?


In all sincerity, I am very happy to be home; to see my family, my friends, and my bed (sleeping being the second thing I did, only after having pizza, of course!)  I have now been home for five days, the first four of which were pretty hard on my body.  Jet lag (especially after a 14-hour layover in Norway) hit me pretty hard and left me with a migraine and irregular sleep schedule that I am just now coming out of.    Now that I’m not waking up at 4:00 in the morning and have seen the majority of my family and friends, it almost feels as if no time has passed at all.  It was pretty comforting to come home and see that though life went on whilst I was gone for a month, everything stayed relatively the same.  I suppose I am ready to settle back into the life I had prior to leaving, one that consisted primarily of school work and my part-time job, but now I’m grateful to say my mind has beautiful places including Scotland, France, and England to wander to.

Bridget is studying English and Creative Writing at SUNY New Paltz. She loves to write poetry and hopes that attending school in London will provide ample inspiration for her to do just that.
