Prior to coming to the United Kingdom, I had an interest in physical therapy.  Now, after just a few weeks in the United Kingdom, I have a passion in it.

I am an incoming junior in college who will be completing her undergraduate degree with a major in Kinesiology. Kinesiology is the study of movement, so if you can imagine, the degree lines up quite nicely with the prerequisites that are required for entrance into a physical therapy doctorate program.

Following high school, I knew a few things about where I wanted my future career to take me; I preferred science classes as opposed to history classes, I wanted to work with and help people and I wanted a career that took me farther than my undergraduate degree.  With my interests in science, the human body and working with people, I came to the decision of working towards a major in Kinesiology with intent of taking it past my four years at the University of Minnesota.

My alarm goes off, I groggily hit the snooze button. A few more snoozes, I have no choice but to get up. I run through my morning routine, no different than I do back in the States (although the water pressure here is spectacular).

I step out of my flat, thrust out of my sleepy reverie as a black cab goes screaming past. Although I usually head directly across my flat towards the tube station, my internship is the one place I have to take the bus. There’s a reason the bright red, double-decker buses are so commonly associated with London; they are absolutely everywhere.

The bus ride to my internship was once an enthralling opportunity to see the city—rows upon rows of Victorian houses. Now, I keep my head glued to my book. Lasting around 45 minutes, I’d usually bemoan any commute that lengthy, but back at home I would be the one behind the wheel. Here, a city that has properly invested in public transportation, my commute is one of the best parts of my day; I get an entire 45 minutes of uninterrupted, guilt-free reading. I’ve also figured the three items every tube or bus ride necessitates: sunglasses to avoid eye-contact, headphones for music, and a book for entertainment.
