An International Student of Literature in England.
I’m back home! It felt quite weird during the Christmas holidays, but now it feels even more strange since I feel really at home and comfortable at UEA. What I miss the most is all the time spent in the kitchen cooking and chatting with my flatmates. But I’ll be back in England before I know it!
I travelled all day last Sunday — it was a long day. I spent five hours on the coach (it felt like ages, I was so bored) and then me and my boyfriend waited at the airport for a few hours. The cool thing is that while waiting, we went for dinner at Wagamama (again!)! I got “Yasai yaki soba”, as usual: it’s a mix of yummy fried noodles, peppers, spring onions, mushrooms, shallots and ginger!
And then on the plane… SURPRISE! I got awesome food again! Their vegetarian option was a tasty “Oriental style noodle salad”! I was happy 😀 It was also the first time I had coke since the Christmas break, so I had to take a photograph to capture this moment of food-related joy!
And then when we finally arrived at Nice airport, I was relieved to see that my electric guitar was ALIVE! I mean, it had arrived safely without being smashed or lost. I had to take another photograph to celebrate my second moment of joy of the day.
Now I’m back in the land of baguettes, croissants and wine — which leads me to the next picture… I’d missed baguettes so much! Some people keep asking me what I miss from France, and honestly, I miss baguettes! It’s also funny because that’s not the kind of answer they expect at all, and you can see it on their face.
I have a little more time to play music and relax in France (I’m planning to released new Youtube videos soon), but I also have to work on my essays, because I have four deadlines at the end of the semester… I’ve tried to work a bit today but find it hard to concentrate. At some point I was like “I could just go to the library!” and then realised I wasn’t at UEA 😛 .
How does it feel for you to be back home? Do you think anything has changed?
