It's been a couple weeks since I moved into my flat in London. It's in Zone 1, which means it's in a very accessible area and I can easily walk or bus to places like Oxford Street for shopping, Big Ben and the River Thames, Chinatown, and lots of pubs and cafes.
The main cultural adjustment in the two weeks I've been here has actually been looking the right way before crossing the street, because I've had several near death experiences when I've looked to the left and stepped out onto the street and had a car zoom by from the right. But just last week I looked the right way by myself for the first time!
Coming from Hawaii the weather here has been a little bit of a struggle because its so cold and gloomy, and the other day when I woke up I was feeling so sad that I just sat by my window in the sun to try and get Vitamin D. Maybe I'll get seasonal affect disorder.
Business classes here are also very different from America. They teach the lessons very quickly and you're expected to study and learn it on your own outside of class, and then most of your grade is based on one final exam at the end. I can see why British people seem to think Americans are so stupid, because we have an alternate assessment tailored to exchange students.
Anyway so far London is great but I need to find a way to get some sun!
