Time to be done

Yesterday I got back from Egypt. No, I'm not joking. I spent my spring break in Egypt. I stayed at a resort in Sharm El Sheikh at the tip of the Sinai peninsula. I got to go snorkeling in the Red Sea, went to Cairo to go shopping and see the pyramids and sphinx, and rode a camel in the desert at sunset to a bedouin tent to eat dinner. Other than that, I laid out on the beach (far better than the freezing temperatures in London). Not a shabby spring break.

But now I'm home--back to the ins and outs of everyday here in London. I just finished some homework for my humanities class. Did a lot of reading earlier today. But none of that is really a big deal. I don't mind schoolwork, but I do mind some of the crap that goes on here in the house. I live with 40 other students from my university, and I have never been anywhere that has so much gossip. It is ridiculous. You would think that since we all live together and have to put up with each other on a daily basis people would be relatively kind to each other just to make things easy. But no, that isn't the case. And I'm not exactly popular in the house. I don't think anyone outright hates me, but there are a lot of people who are quite cold to me. I basically feel unwelcome most of the time. I know that that is my fault to a certain extent, but it doesn't mean that it is any fun.

At any rate, I'm getting tired of being here. I love London. I don't want to leave the city, but I'm ready to be out of the house. I know that the day that I finally haul my suitcase out the front door will be sad, but I don't dread that day. I am so grateful that I've gotten to come here and experience so many wonderful things, but there is a time for everything--including a time to be done. It is nearly time to be done.
