Taking It Slow (#220)

Each day that passes means I’m one closer to going home. Time has never moved this slowly my entire life but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I’ve been productive with my time here in England. Although my work isn’t the most rewarding, I’ve worked on a number of projects and feel prepared for the fall semester. I’m still looking forward to heading home and seeing my family but I’ve certainly been able to savor every last second of my summer in the UK 🇬🇧.


Today I’m Grateful For…

  1. Mistakes and moments of learning
  2. A full night’s rest
  3. The sound and feeling of rain
  4. Firefighters and first responders
  5. My siblings
  6. Late night mac and cheese
  7. Delivering pizza in high school
  8. The sound of the train passing in the night
  9. My friends at UMass
  10. Time outside
