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 😉

2 Oct

I just blog when I feel like it.

Well I missed out on blogging on Friday because Moritz was here, and let’s face it, I was too busy having fun with him in London to write a blog post. And let’s also face it, Tristan isn’t going to blog because he’s promised us he would for like the past 5 weeks and he never has, so why should we believe he’s going to today?

Of course the weekend was really wonderful. You can read about it in more detail at my other blog if you want. Here’s still a few pictures though.

Saturday night we were going to go out to a club, but we started drinking rum in my room so we never ended up going. We played a reaction game on his phone, so that was really funny. Also I tried to jump on my bed and fell on the floor. I have a few bruises to show for that. Haha. Also, it was really weird sharing a tiny bed in a room with two other roommates. It was actually kind of weirder because Hanna was gone for 3 nights so then it was just us two and Megan.

We had to get up at 3:15am on Monday morning so he could get to the airport on time. I got home at 5:30 and skipped my classes and slept until noon. You see some pretty interesting things on the night bus is all I can say.

Monday I pretty much laid in bed for 5 hours until I went to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream with my theatre class. We had standing tickets, which was okay because we were super close to the stage. It was a good play because I’ve seen this one before, plus we read it in eighth grade, so I knew what was going on. It was a little long though and it was like 11:15pm by the time we got home.

Yesterday I was a little homesick for the first time really since I’ve been here. I think I was just feeling lonely since Moritz had left and it was back to school and stuff like that. This study abroad thing can be hard. It’s a dream but it also can be challenging. But I got over it pretty soon. Last night I also went to the student bar for the first time and had my favorite drink, Bacardi and pineapple juice. And then I went to the vending machine twice, and skyped with my family later.

This weekend half of my friends are going to Edinburgh, Scotland on a school trip and half are going to Dublin. I’m not going to either because I want to save money and I’m going to Dublin in 2 and a half weeks anyway. I hope I don’t get lonely but it might be nice to have a few days to myself to go out and do some photography and shopping.

Here’s some really good news for me: Carrie’s friend’s dad is coming to London over the weekend, and my mom told me that he will bring me some stuff from home that I want. For example, some t-shirts, yoga pants, and leggings. All things that for some reason I didn’t pack when I came here?? Also my black flats, which I can’t remember if we threw away before I came but I really hope not because I always need black flats and can’t find any here that I can justify spending that much money on.

I guess that’s all. I’m not feeling very good today so I was hoping this would distract me, but I have to go write a paper.

P.S. The government’s shut down and I’m a little jealous that I’m not home for that

P.P.S. Chiefs
