An American in London

I’ve been back in the States for about a week, and it’s been weird.  My semester in London was a lot of things, and it changed my sleep schedule pretty dramatically as well as my opinions and outlook on the rest of my life.  Everything before London was stable, secure, set in stone; everything now…

Late-Night Essay-Writing
