A lot of people start blogs when they go abroad. I didn't want to blog simply because I was abroad, but the fact of the matter is, is that being here opens your eyes to new things- many things worth writing about. The experience of studying abroad impacts everyone differently, and depending on the environment you enter into, you will be changed in different ways.
I have been in London studying at Regent's University for about a month now. Coming from a Catholic, Jesuit institution, where I feel connected and loved by my community, to a new private, international school was a large adjustment. I walked in, feeling like a freshman all over again, with no close friends, no involvement, and no history.
