Update: I've Fallen in Love

by Allison

No, not with a boy. It’s midterms season and I’ve found myself being particularly stressed about schoolwork, my job, and my life as a whole. It is so easy for me to be swept away in the stress of it all and completely forget the big picture. As my dad likes to say, when I focus on something, I really focus on it. When I’m involved in doing something, it is hard to shift my attention to basically anything else other than the task at hand.

Expired Milk Made Me Cry

by Allison

Okay, so I didn’t actually cry. It just makes for a catchier title to say that I did. The truth is, I didn’t cry, but I certainly wanted to. The other day, I had some British friends over to my flat. It happened to be raining that evening, so many of them showed up varying degrees of soaked. I noticed some people were more cold and wet than others, so I offered them tea to help them warm up.

As a natural born introvert, the constant bombardment of new people and experiences can be a lot. Being abroad means that everything is new, which can sometimes make coping with anxiety and homesickness difficult.

For me, something that has been unexpectedly causing me anxiety has been spending time with big groups of my British friends.

"Are You From North or South America?"

by Allison

When you’re an American in England, you have to sign every time you use your credit/debit card. Literally. Every. Time. The other day, I was at the grocery store and had to sign for my groceries. The cashier asked me if I had an English back account, to which I responded no. He then asked me if my account was American. After I said yes, he genuinely and sincerely asked me if I was from North or South America.

by Allison

How do you fit in with the culture around you while maintaining a sense of self? In sharing a few personal experiences as well as my general knowledge, the balance of blending in while being yourself becomes easier to see.
