Dispatch from London

So, I decided to move to London.  In middle school, I became obsessed with England (which was a little disappointing for my dad, as the majority of his ancestors are Scottish.  See the movie, Braveheart.)  But I couldn't get enough of England.  I read books about royalty and English history.  I combed through magazines looking for British products and clothes.  I searched television channels for English sporting events.  My obsession was cemented after my aunt began going to England for business.  After each trip, she would bring me back gifts.  One time it was a scarf from Liberty.  Another time it was a Filofax planner.  I began daydreaming about living in London.

I never studied abroad in college for a variety of reasons, and I kept chugging away at school and my career.  Over the past few years I've traveled to London several times, and I never quite gave up the notion of moving to London.  So a couple of months ago, I decided to make some changes in my life and jaunt across the pond.  I plan on living in London a few months, sprinkled with lots of side trips!  I am staying at a hotel right now, but have rented a flat for the rest of my time here.  I've barely been here a day, and I don't think it's completely sunk in that I am going to live here for the next several months.  I can't wait to see where all of this leads and hope you'll join me on this adventure!
