There are so many things that I never considered wouldn’t be around, that I now get unreasonably excited when something is the same as it is in the States.
For example, Grooveshark works! (Hulu doesn’t 😦 )
Despite what my elementary and middle school teachers told me, the Brits still use the Imperial measurement system, which means miles and inches and pounds and pints that I don’t need to do mental math to understand!
And some other things that never used to be everyday occurrences…
- Making it inside just before it starts raining (again)!
- Walking by beautiful old old old buildings along cobblestone roads… I feel like I’m in Harry Potter all day, except without the wands and broomsticks!
- Learning new meanings for words, and new words for meanings… for example, proctors are called invigilators here. Doesn’t that sound like something out of Batman?! I think having an invigilator proctor my exam would really mess with my concentration.
