One visiting student's take on being an American in London. I don't know why they didn't ask me to write it! But seriously, it's a pretty good and I'm sure universal take. While I've found living/adjusting to living in London to be not too difficult, that's probably because I spent 9 months already adjusting to the British character. And Oxford was so so so much worse. But like subtly, so maybe it was all in my head. But probably not considering how long it took and how hard I worked to make British friends there. That might also just be the visiting student experience. Maybe it's different now that I'm an "actual" student and therefore on a level playing field. I don't know. It's probably way too early for me to be writing this much.
