BSc (Hons) Psychology

Back Home in Wisconsin!

Friday, June 28th, 2013

I’ve been home for a couple weeks now and it was definitely strange at first, seeing as I haven’t been home since last September. Here’s some of what I’ve been up to since coming home:


















Well, the flight and everything went fine. I got the train down to London from Sunderland and then the tube from King’s Cross to Heathrow. It was all really easy, the hardest part was definitely all the packing I had been doing.

LOOK AT ALL THE THINGS I HAD TO BRING HOME. I’m surprised airport security didn’t say anything, my bag was absolutely stuffed with glass bottles. =P

Allow me to introduce you to my puppy, Tessie. I think I missed having her around most! :[

So in the first week that I got back, I think I applied to about 20482083 jobs. (Just kidding, it was more like 20, but still) But anyway, it paid off, as I’m now working at Pizza Hut for the summer! Yay! =D Also, can you believe that everyone here now thinks I have an English accent?!?!?! What?!?!?!

Besides that, I haven’t been doing too much. Just going on some runs, playing Scrabble and card games with my mom and sister (yes, I absolutely LOVE Scrabble haha), finally getting a tan, and doing stuff around the house. Can you believe I actually MISSED mowing the lawn? It’s true. =P


It’s good to be home though. :] And I know that when September rolls around, I’ll be buzzing to get back!
