Something I've Learned About Myself During Study Abroad

Next week marks a whole month since I started studying abroad in England and so far I've learned a lot about myself. I've figured out that I'm pretty good with reading maps, organizing and making sure things are going smoothly. The one thing I've learned that really sticks out to me is this: I really, really love Chick-Fil-A.

I used to think that I wouldn't really miss Chick-Fil-A if I ever moved away from the south. I thought: they'll be other chick sandwiches, and other places to get chicken strips. Boy, was I wrong. So far, I've thought about Chick-Fil-A at least a couple of times a week since I've been here and if I close my eyes and really concentrate, I can taste that Chick-Fil-A sauce. It's actually gotten to the point where I've asked my friends who are visiting me for spring break to bring me some sauce packets, and I'm not proud to say that I might be more excited about that than my friends. (I'm kidding, but let's be real, it's so delicious).

I've tried talking to my friends that I've made here about my love for Chick-Fil-A but most of them just don't understand, I mean how could they? They don't know how good the chicken strips are, or how amazing the waffle fries dipped in the chocolate shake really is.

So, even though I've learned some pretty great things about myself already in the short time I've been in England, I wasn't expecting Chick-Fil-A to be one of the things that I would end up missing so much. So, do me a favor and go get yourself a number six meal with a lemonde.
