Even though I visited London a year or so after moving away in 2008, I am having very strange feelings about going back to visit. Sitting in the DC airport and hearing all these British accents takes me back to feeling so foreign and out of place in London.
Tonight I said my first "Cheers" after hearing the flight attendent say "lovely" six times in the three minutes she helped me. I love hearing lovely but am cautious about falling back into British colloquialisms.
I am going to frame this visit as an opportunity to create new memories and experiences. So happy I'm going with my friend Leah, meeting my other friend Laia and also spending quality time with my dearest friend Simone. Girl power!
