Culture shock is a term used to describe coming back home and feeling very out-of-place. When I came back to my room, I hardly recognized it. It felt like a new hotel, or like visiting a childhood house I haven't been to in years. Things continue to feel surreal, but are gradually returning to normal. I spent the weekend with Rachel, which was absolutely wonderful, and whether it feels like home or not, it definitely feels like I belong. Now, with Christmas less than a week away, and work tomorrow, it's time to finish adjusting quickly. Again, these past three and half months have been the best of my life. I am so glad I did them, and they will be a part of me for the rest of my life.
