being back in london still feels strange - though not as strange as it did when i came back for a few days last summer (and felt so dreadful and wrong that it took an entire david bowie exhibit to break me out of my funk). being a tourist in westminster instead of an intern is a bit sad, i can’t simply swipe my security pass and have access to the entire parliamentary estate, i’m just another yankee snapping photos of the biggest ben.

but it feels so great to be back here. so right it almost feels wrong, and i start to feel sad because spring semester 2012 was, like, a really important thing that happened to me and it’s over, it’s BEEN over, it’s been two years now (and one day, it will be twenty years).

except academic year 2014-2015 is about to be a thing too, and i’m back in the UK (if it stays the UK), london is only a five hour train ride away, and glasgow is going to be my city now. and i’m going to make new memories and some day in the future those memories are going to twist my insides up in just the same way.

just got out of the jacuzzi in our (airbnb) apartment, listening to a stream of my favorite 80s radio show (robert drake’s land of the lost on wxpn in philly). i mentioned on their facebook page that i was listening from reykjavik and he mentioned me on air as well as the fact that i’m attending the university of glasgow (which i DIDN’T mention on the page, he just knew from my facebook posts). and then i had the sugarcubes’ motorcrash played in my honor. because i’m in iceland.

every feeling of anxiety and trepidation and wrongness i had before embarking on this trip is gone, and i am just really, really happy right now.

1. before i left for my semester in london in 2012, i was in complete denial over my impending move and all i wanted to do was lie in bed and think about the x-files (i had spent nearly my entire winter break watching the entire series). i’m afraid i’m in nearly the same position now, except i’m moving to glasgow for a year and i’m thinking about game of thrones. i just want to lie in bed and read the books and think about game of thrones. i don’t want to go to school. don’t make me.

2. i’m talking to some folks on the facebook page for university of glasgow postgraduates and i’m like “GUHGHH all these people seem so NICE and NORMAL and i’m just a flippin’ weirdo no one is going to like me and i’m going to make no friends.” no no no no. i am a nice person and i will make friends! it’s scotland! i’ve never not made friends in scotland! they love me over there, that’s why they gave me money to attend their university.

3. it is almost a necessity that i have a place to write - i mean, really write - about my experiences. i thought about starting a new blog but why start a new blog when i ALREADY HAVE A BLOG? one that i started for the express purpose of writing about being a yankee in the UK. so there you have it. i’m going to write more in this tumblr. at least until i make a friend.
