21 today!

Saturday, August 25th, 2007

I’m finally 21!

I’ve spent the last few weeks on holiday with my family. We started off just outside Toronto, at a lovely lakeside house owned by some friends. After a week there, we drove to Niagara Falls and did the usual tourist things on the Canadian side, which was an amazing experience. Next we flew into Boston and then spent a few days at a nice beach-side house on Cape Cod. We’ve spent the last few days in Boston and my family will return home on Tuesday.

Tonight, my family, 20 friends and myself will be gathering for a meal in Boston. Then we’ll be hitting up some bars for my first true taste of American nightlife (the under 21 thing isn’t much fun out here!).

It’ll also be a bit of a farewell do, as on September 4th I end my American experience and return back to England. It’s going to be strange leaving all this behind so suddenly, it’s also a little sad. For those of you who stumble across this post, I’d like to thank all of my new friends in the US who have made this year so enjoyable, especially those who helped with the moving and settling in. I’ve had a fantastic time and will definitely be visiting in the near future.

What’s next for me? Well, in a few weeks time I return to the University of Manchester (UK) to resume my studies. I’ll be entering the 3rd year of my Computer Science masters degree.
