Back to Oberlin

Hi everyone, it's Talia. I know I don't write on this very often, but I just thought I'd let everyone know that we made it back to Oberlin safely. We are now knee-deep in unpacking. Fortunately our apartment seems to be the perfect size for us, so we are excited about that. Jaimie is in his element unpacking, rearranging, and plotting decorations. Personally, I'm not really a fan of unpacking, but it's fun to think about the final product.
Our time in Barcelona and Europe was truly incredible. We learned so much about ourselves, each other, Spanish, different culture, histories, politics, etc.. Jaimie turned out to be the perfect travel companion, which made me very happy.
It's crazy to be back. Sometimes it feels crazy soley because... well, it's not as wierd as I expected it to be. Does that make sense? Oberlin looks the same, and that feels odd. But at other times the reverse culture shock is strange too. But it's great to be here. And having Jaimie and other study away folks to debrief with is very special.
Anyway, we're happy and safe. Hope you are too.
