    I forgot my own language, how is this possible #reversecultureshock

    and are you whipping around every time you hear someone speaking English? I do that a lot. #reversecultureshock

    Expected to hear French at the grocery store today, but only heard English. Felt strange. Missing #p2cqex . #reversecultureshock

    first reactions will be: why isn’t it boiling? why isn’t everyone chinese? why are people speaking english? #reversecultureshock

    Why would someone put 20″ chrome rims with sport tires on minivan?! I love California but people here are… bonkers! #reversecultureshock

    This bus has electrical outlets and wifi #confused #reversecultureshock

    In Ottawa… I won’t get the culture shock till I get back to Calgary. I’m still surrounded by french. #reversecultureshock

    my google calendar just figured out that im in America and screwed up all the times/dates I had programmed in #ReverseCultureShock

    People keep looking at me funny because I’m walking around with a thin cardigan on instead of a coat while outside. #reversecultureshock

    A bit sad that my sweet tooth has changed. Not really in the mood for Aussie pastries…or more what is available here. #reversecultureshock

    I’m not ready to dive into normal life yet. My mind refuses to focus. I’m experiencing #reversecultureshock everywhere!

    Toilet handles, doorknobs, light switches…all so different in America #reversecultureshock

    I think I’m finally to that point to where I can stand being around most Americans. #reversecultureshock #stillmissAFRICA!

    Same with El Salvador :/ It’s hard to adjust. #ReverseCultureShock

    Boy, gotta love the free wifi at #changiairport it’s so much faster than what we had in Indo. #reversecultureshock

    Take me back to London where I was an independent woman and only abided by the rules I gave myself. #reverseCultureShock

    One night outside in Rossville and I’m covered in mosquito bites. Welcome back to America. #reversecultureshock

    I’ve been here all this time and I still don’t get some of those things you tweeted about. #ReverseCultureShock

    Candy Crush is apparently as addicting as meth. I’ve played, it’s fun, but I don’t get why people are obsessed #ReverseCultureShock

    Vines are new. Some are actually pretty good. Most are shit though #ReverseCultureShock

    I txted someone after a SnapChat and thy acted like I was a fool. Now I send people blank screens with txt in response. #ReverseCultureShock

    I still don’t know proper SnapChat etiquette.. #ReverseCultureShock

    People saying “tho,” or a variation of, way too much (I’m starting to pick this one up) #ReverseCultureShock

    Twerking also became a thing apparently.. How’d that happen?? #ReverseCultureShock

    There are so many things that are popular now that weren’t before I left for France.. #ReverseCultureShock

    High waisted shorts are for sure on that list. I still don’t know how I feel about them.. #ReverseCultureShock

    indulging in all the first world pleasures today #reversecultureshock

    After two weeks of drinking nothing but bottled water, I’m not sure I can go back to tap water. Tastes so weird. #reversecultureshock

    Houston tap water may be worse than Budweiser #reversecultureshock

    An Englishman just said Cheers to me…in America! I’m practically squealing with glee. #reversecultureshock

    All these bare shoulders and uncovered heads I mean really what is life #reversecultureshock

    I didn’t buy these Prada sunglasses to cry in yet here I am. #ReverseCultureShock

    it’s been a week since being home…still on #EcuadorWithrdrawls #transition #reversecultureshock
