I think one thing that has definitely changed within the last few months is that I am starting to feel at home in London in a way that I haven't before. I no longer feel like the person who is constantly battling against feeling out of place or who wants to focus on how different everything. I find myself going with the flow and feeling more relaxed and adjusted that I have ever felt.
At the same time I still feel conflicted and homesick, but in a much different way than I have before. I think I've also rebelled against writing about it too.
I've grown tired of talking about where I am from. I think this should make sense to other expat bloggers. I am tired of most of the conversation being about being from some place else and then moving onto thoughts and observations about life in London.
Of course I realise that the majority of the population of London if from some place else, but I feel like I end up spewing out the same speech time after time only to end up boring myself not to mention the other people.
Do other expats feel this way? I'd be interested in finding out what you all think.
