I need to do laundry

16 Oct

I just made the executive decision to blog today because Friday I’ll be in IRELAND!

This week has been kind of weird. Friday night we went to my favorite club. We pregamed in our room for once, instead of our guy friends’ room. I didn’t know if I’d be able to drink anything after my Bacardi Mishap of last weekend, but I got a good chaser and my friend Austin recited Shakespeare to me. He said people need a mantra for taking shots, like 3 lines of Shakespeare, but I told him that I only know “wherefore art thou Romeo” and so he said, “O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name” to me repeatedly. It worked! Listening to Shakespeare definitely made it go down easier.

We went out and got to the club after about an hour of wandering around and shouting “PANTY RAID” in various tube stations. Then my roommates almost got in a fist fight in the rain outside the club at 2am. They were both super drunk and Megan didn’t want to come home with us because she was with some guy, and she kept being really mean to Hanna and Madi. I’m surprised Hanna could even stand up. She was even drunker than Bethany that one night over the summer. LOL. She fell asleep so fast when we got home and was super hungover the next day. Megan came home at 4:30am and started shouting “I’m sorry!” the second she came in the door and crawled into bed with Hanna and asked her if she wanted to order a pizza.

The rest of this week has not been too noteworthy. Midterms. I get an A- or a B+ on every assignment. George wore a pink shirt and purple pants to class on Monday. That was the first time I’d gone to his class on Monday in 3 weeks. I ate cake, chocolate milk, and a chocolate bar for dinner. I hope I don’t fail my international relations midterm tomorrow because we haven’t learned ANYTHING all semester.

Other than that, the only thing I’m really concerned about right now is getting all my clothes washed before fall break, especially my underwear. Sharing 5 washers and 5 dryers between 150 kids who are about to go on vacation for 10 days is not an ideal situation, as I’m sure you can imagine.

Anyway, I’m super excited to go on my trip! I’ll try to send you guys postcards 🙂 I’ll blog again in about 2 weeks or so.

Have a great rest of your week!

P.S. Yes I got a little schwastey last night at my home bar, The Metropolitan, in the presence of my friends Hanna, Carson, and GEORGE MY PROFESSOR. And I had a field trip with him this morning, but it wasn’t even awkward. It would have been more awkward if I had missed it 😉

Mid-European-adventure crisis

11 Oct

Hey everyone. This week and next week are sure to be busy with a lot of assignments and stuff like that because Fall Break is quickly approaching (one week!?!? Ahhhh!). Not only do I need to finish things for next week, but I’d also like to at least start on things that are due the week after fall break (meanest teacher move ever) so I don’t have to do them all as soon as I get back.

I guess that means I have to suck it up and get stuff done? Even if it means that I can hardly do anything fun? This is like the worst conundrum of my life. I’m in LONDON yet I can’t go out and enjoy it every second because I actually have real homework. You’d think it wouldn’t be that bad since I’m only taking 12 hours but somehow it’s worse than last semester when I took 17 and was working 20-25 hours a week. Actually, I know exactly why it’s worse.

In Springfield I have no qualms about sitting home and doing homework at night, actually I love it when I can do that because it means that I have the night off from work and don’t have some other event or meeting I need to go to. Here, it’s completely the opposite. I never have work or meetings to go to, but I’M IN LONDON. I don’t want to go to the library for 8 hours and write a paper. Besides, even if I did, someone would drag me to a bar or something eventually (I would go willingly). That doesn’t happen at home (still illegal at home). There’s a lot of peer pressure here. I don’t use that as an excuse. I am perfectly capable of saying no when I really need to, but a lot of times I don’t really need to, so I don’t.

So, I don’t know the answer to this predicament.  It’s all about finding the balance I guess, but that’s actually really difficult.

Last night I stayed in, did some homework, ate a candy bar from the vending machine (holla) and tonight I’m going to a club with Hanna, Megan, and Madi. Don’t know if I’m going to drink though. Public service announcement: please eat more than a piece of salami and a slice of cheese during the day before you decide to drink a third of a bottle of rum. You might just get the worst hangover ever. I would trust this advice if I were you.

Time is going so fast. Tomorrow it’s been exactly 2 months since I left home. Next week being fall break is kind of giving me a mid-life crisis only “mid-European adventure” crisis instead. I’m super excited to see some new places though and just travel around through four different countries for 10 days! When we get back, it will be November already. Three weeks until my trip to Prague, and then one week until YOU GUYS ARE HERE!! Then 10 days of fun fun fun and then finals and then… goodbye London, hello Germany, goodbye Germany, hello USA… Nooooo it can’t be

I hope you guys are having a good week, special S/O to Meiguan, wish I could give you a hug and I know your future is going to be great! Well I would do the same for all of you actually 🙂

Cathy
