Well, I have been home for four days now and things have been great so far! I have eaten most of the foods I missed and gotten used to being asked how being abroad was. I don’t think I have experienced much culture shock since being home, except having to put the toilet paper in the toilet again, but I am sure it will kick in soon, especially when I head back to school in January.
Luckily, since I have been back, I have kept myself busy with running errands, working on some things for school, and visiting friends at the University of Arizona. I think this has been a really great way for me to get accustomed to my life back here in the US because I jumped right back into my routine of things. Although I most definitely miss CR, I love being back home.
