Living Next To An Airport

I meant to write about this the first day I got to London, but of course I do it only after I have already spent all my time there and come back to my room. I’m a stoopit.

Anyway. RHUL was only a couple of miles away from Heathrow International Airport, which meant that there were planes flying overhead all day long. It’s not a particularly obnoxious sound, but here’s the thing – all us Americans were around 9 or 10 when 9/11 happened back in 2001, and for the first month or two whenever we were outside and plane happened to fly by, we’d jump a little and hope everything was alright.

Our generation’s version of “Where were you when you heard JFK was shot?”
