Bye London

16 Dec

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last blogged but I figured I would anyway even though it’s not my day. Sorry (Derek)?

Well of course I’m not in London anymore. But last week was pretty great because, since it was my last week, I had a lot of free time to do a few things I still wanted to do. Also, Thursday night was completely insane, because it was the last night everyone had together. We went to O’Neil’s, of course (which I hate and you guys know that) but it was okay because I was pretty uh intoxicated and so was everyone else. Like way over the top. I remember singing “Thrift Shop” at the top of my lungs with Carson as we walked to O’Neil’s from Piccadilly Circus. I’m actually kind of surprised we got in because apparently one of our other friends, they kept telling her to go to McDonald’s and then come back. Which she did, five times, and they still wouldn’t let her in. She later said “It was like everyone was drunk for the first time, that’s how bad it was” which I thought was a very good way to put it.

We all paid for it with killer hangovers at British High Tea the next day. Oops. That’s classic, huh? Memories. That’s how I see it 😉

Then of course Saturday was my 21st birthday! I can’t believe I’m 21, though of course it doesn’t feel too different yet but I’m super excited! I had a great birthday away from home, even though it involved a lot of crying. But it also involved wonderful friends, Big Ben, and chocolate cake. And one drink 🙂

It was super hard to leave London. I’m already missing all my friends soooo much. I can’t believe it’s over and things will never be how they were again. I’m torn between being happy for everyone that they’re back home, but mostly I’m wishing we were all still together in London and the fun could continue.

But on the bright side, I’m in Germany! Having a great time so far. (Do I really have to go home in a week??) Moritz and I went out for dinner last night, my birthday dinner he said, and I had my favorite German food- schnitzel at our favorite German restaurant in Heidelberg. Then I came back to his apartment and he wrapped his scarf around my head while he set up a surprise, which were sooooo many candles and a tiramisu cake and lots of hearts all over the place ❤ and then we watched the Chiefs beat the Raiders 56-31 and ate the tiramisu. Today we hung out in Heidelberg and then went to the grocery store, and then cooked dinner 🙂 And now he’s working on a project so that’s why I decided to blog.

This is probably my last blog from Europe, right 😦 Well anyway, I miss you guys!

Wednesday (technically Thursday)

20 Dec

Well this is my obligatory Wednesday post for the week, although it will probably be my last one until school starts again in like 5 weeks (woohoo).

Because on Friday, I leave for Germany!!! Hip hip hooray! So then 1/3 of our chrisman2college crew will be in the lovely continent of Europe.

So what have I been doing this week in preparation? Monday my mom gave me my credit card for the first time and I went on a shopping spree for myself. Tuesday I dyed part of my hair purple, because you know what, I’m 20 and  #YOLO. Today I went shopping for craft supplies to make Christmas gifts for Moritz and his sister, and this evening I made said gifts. And painted my toenails.  And dyed some more of my hair. (#YOLO)

But guess what one thing I haven’t been doing is? If you guessed packing, then you’d be correct. I never pack until the last possible minute. And my room is still in disarray from coming home from college, because I never unpack either. I haven’t even begun to sort through what’s clean, what’s dirty, what I need to take, etc… and I probably won’t until a few hours before I leave for the airport. Also this is probably the reason I always realize something I forgot when I get to the airport, like last time it was toothpaste in a 3 oz or less tube, so I had to buy some for like $7 at the airport gift shop so when I arrived in Germany 12 hours later my breath wouldn’t smell.

Ummm, in case you hadn’t heard, I got all A’s and a C+ this semester, making this my first “C” ever (or at least when it actually counts) since 6th grade when I got it in band for never turning in my practice records. Thank you, Calculus, for thwarting my opportunity for the Dean’s List this semester. I’m so excited to be done with math FOREVER though 🙂

Well, talk to you all in about 3 and 1/2 weeks and I’ll send you postcards, I think I have everyone’s address!
