That's sort of how I feel about 2014 in general: transient and surreal. In the span of 2014, I have lived in three places: Bowling Green, Avon Lake, and Keele, England. Each of these places I have called home, each place I have left and will leave and my life will continue this way until I graduate in 2016 (minus England), bouncing back and forth between two places that have contributed to me growing up. This year, I have learned to appreciate the surreal and transient nature of travel. One morning, I was in England. By the evening, I was in Tampa, Florida. Throughout all the travel of the past year - from NYC to Florida to Indianapolis to England - it has struck me nearly every single time that I am one fortunate individual to see so much of the world.

I think that studying abroad has forced me to be aware of these things inside myself, but I think that I knew these things in Ohio and have been forced and will continue to be forced to recognize both my flaws and my strengths.
