Recap of my Semester

Unfortunately, this will be my last blog post, as I have officially finished up with my classes and my hours for my internship. I have absolutely loved my time here in London, so I thought I would end my last blog post with a summary of how I liked my time in London.

I absolutely loved London from the first day I was here. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from my time here, but I definitely got my money’s worth, from exploring different neighborhoods in London, to traveling to other towns and cities in the UK, to traveling across Europe. I really am grateful for everyone who made this trip a success, and I’d like to personally thank each and every person that helped contribute to my trip in one way or another.

First and foremost, I’d like to thank Mr. Keith Crissman for financially supporting me on my trip. I was very appreciative to receive this scholarship, and your help definitely does not go unnoticed. So thank you once again, and I look forward to talking more in the future about my trip and what I truly got out of it.

Secondly, I’d obviously like to thank my family, especially my parents. As you both know, I’ve been wanting to study abroad ever since I was looking at colleges during my junior year in high school, so this has been a long time coming. From all the FaceTime calls and frequent texts, to calling when my flight has been delayed, and to visiting me after my trip was over, I really appreciate your support in every way imaginable.

Next, I’d like to take a minute to thank my roommates and all my friends who I met during my time in London. It was an awesome time we had in London, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world, so thank you to everyone in London (especially all my Kilburn Killaz) who made it possible. I wish nothing but the best going forward, and I hope we stay in touch in the near future. Side note: Millwall will forever be the best, and their fans will always be fellow bellends like we are.

I’d also like to thank all my coworkers at Inspiratia for helping me adjust and adapt to the work environment in the UK. I know everyone was busy with different projects while I was there, but I know that I learned a lot from my time working with Jon, Daniel, and Pruthvi, and I can only hope they were able to get good results and product from my work during my short time there.

Finally, I’d like to thank CAPA for putting together such a good program and environment to make the most out of. I thoroughly enjoyed all of my classes, my professors, and the material that we covered in each class. I hope they were all happy with me as a student, and I know that I truly benefitted from my time with each and every one of them. I also want to thank CAPA for setting up such great day trips, such as my day trip to Stonehenge, and my day trip to Cambridge. Both experiences were phenomenal, and they were well organized and were interesting to keep me engaged.

For anyone who continually followed along with my posts, I’d like to thank you as well. I hope you were able to stay connected with me in some sense during my time in the UK, and I know I was able to help inform you of my progress and experiences that I had during my short couple of months here.

Going forward, I’m actually going to be traveling through Europe for 3 weeks after my program. I will be traveling to: Amsterdam, Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, Budapest, Prague, Dresden, and Berlin. It’s definitely a lot of time spent over here, and it might be a bit overwhelming, but after years of saving money, I know this trip will be worth every penny.

For the final time: Cheers!
