I have definitely mentioned my Anglophile ways before. I love England and all that comes with it.
It doesn’t really bother me until I learn that a lot of my favorite things (bands, singers, books, films, television shows) only happen in the UK.
Chameleon Circuit (a band that sings songs about Doctor Who and is composed of some of my favorite YouTubers) did a signing in London a few days ago. How much would I have given to go to that signing? Quite a bit honestly. But I don’t get to go to London and meet a band I quite like.
I love London for plenty of reasons. I love the culture and the accent of the people and especially the look of the entire country. I’ve been an Anglophile for about four years now and think it’s time to get a move on to the place where I know I belong.
Is there a country that you know you belong in? Say so in the comments 🙂
Today is a milestone in my life. I have officially lived in the same place for 4 years.
My entire life it has been 3 years and so many months and then we leave. And now I’ve lived in the same town and had the same friends (give or take a few people) for 4 years. And it’s brought something out in me.
I used to compare my life to that of an army brat. You know, the kid that gets their life uprooted every year or so. But I realize that in ways my situation was worse. Instead of just moving and not really making relationships, I made those relationships, made connections, and then had to be painfully pulled away. And in my opinion, that just sounds worse.
I love my life now. I used to always resent moving and having to change schools, friends, and towns. But it has morphed me into the person that I am now. And to that I am thankful to my parents. If my father hadn’t thought that changing jobs and moving to different towns would be good for me and my brother, who would I be? I definitely wouldn’t be the independent, thoughtful young woman I am today. So, to my parents who I hope read this, thank you for just being the sort of parents who did everything with me in mind. I love you two.
I’m getting a bit teary now, so I guess I should probably bid my adieu. It’s been a lovely 8 months with all you readers. And I hope we can continue this…thing we have.
