London Photos!

London Photos are up! (well, mine are. I'll see if I can link to Piotr's when he gets his up.)


Back to Gdańsk

We had a fantastic trip to London this weekend. For those of you who don't know, I retook the MCAT because my old scores had expired and if I'm really going to go for another round of applications, then it's required. The exam went ok, not as well as I'd like unfortunately, but probably about the same as last time which is fine. London, on the other hand, was fan-freaking-tastic.

It was Piotr's first time to the UK and he fell in love with London at once. We stayed with his cousin and her family in Ealing and took a bus/tube combo to get into the city daily. We packed so much into four days without it feeling overwhelming.

But returning home has it's own issues. Well, I say "home" because it's where our cats are but really we're not sure where real "home" is right now. Stressful situations always seem to compound themselves too. As we need to make some potentially life changing decisions, Piotr just got a big job and is working 12+ hours a day. While this is a blessing (we'll be able to pay rent!) it's also tough because it means we don't have the leisure to really explore all our options. Or at least we both don't have that option, it's kid of up to me. On top of all that, I'm trying to get my application together, organize transcripts, letters of recommendation, and write that damn personal statement. I hate personal statements.

I'll be sure to let you all know what happens when it happens, but until then we're trying to get by living in limbo.
