Wednesday thief

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.

the honey badger is my idol this week

7 Mar

Hello all. This week has been most uneventful. But you know me, usually I can come up with some random shit to talk about.

I skipped my photography class on Thursday morning and ohh it was glorious. I spent the evening studying for a computer science test that I would allegedly have on Friday, however this event never occurred.

Friday morning I woke up around 6am feeling like my head was going to split open. I was also sweating to death and felt extremely like I was going to throw up, but I didn’t. It was a migraine, which I’ve never really had before. I stumbled out of bed and sat down at my computer, covering my face with my hands because it hurt my head to look at the bright screen. I kind of typed some words to my professors which I read later and were not so legible. Anyway, I went back to bed until around 11 and felt better and went up to Caitlin’s room to hang out. But around 3 I started having some trouble seeing, like when I would look at a word I could only see one letter. When I looked at Caitlin and Alexis, I could only see one part of them that I was focusing on, like one eye. It was frightening. Then I kind of lost my peripheral vision and saw a lot of zigzags on the stuff that I was looking at. My mom wanted me to go to the ER but I said nahhh bro honey badger don’t care.

Saturday I slept late and was feeling better, and in the evening I went to this dance party at someone’s church where we needed costumes. With only about an hour’s notice, I dressed up as a hipster and I think I made a pretty good one. My hair was already dirty so that helped.

Sunday I once again didn’t do anything really. I folded laundry and skyped and that was it.

Monday I woke up and was feeling pretty good, and my computer science teacher sympathized with me because he said he’s had a migraine before and that I could just take the test Wednesday (today). But during my last class of the day at 11 I started having problems seeing again. It was a little different though – you know when you look at the sun and it kind of burns a big spot into your eye for a while? It was like that when I looked at my professor, only I hadn’t been recently looking at the sun. It didn’t last as long as Friday, but then my headache came back and it was angry. I was supposed to go get help with a computer science project that was due today but instead I went to sleep for about 3 hours. I felt better when I got up though.

Yesterday I had photography at 8, which all we did was a critique and I don’t know how this teacher managed to drag out a critique of 10 people’s photos for an hour and a half. At 9:30 I went back to bed until 11 when I met Caitlin for lunch. Then at 11:30 I went to computer science lab, and my teacher kept asking me how I was feeling and stuff like that, he’s really nice. I’m sad I won’t be taking computer science any more after this year because he is a great person and I like him a lot. I’m just not sure how much long I can stand dismally failing.

Then I had my video class, where I swear it was 80 degrees in there and it was like 70 outside. Not cool. (Literally.) We watched each other’s videos from the last project and we were all comatose to say the least. But mine actually made people laugh, it was another HIPSTER vid so I’ll post that on FB when I can figure out how to get my hard drive to work. My teacher enjoyed it too I think.

Moritz and I have been making webcam videos for each other since we still haven’t been able to talk quite as much, so it’s really cute and I like that a lot! Less than 3 weeks until he’s done, so that’s great, but unfortunately the colleges he’s applying to STILL haven’t received his paperwork 😦 I’m kind of getting into apathetic mode to be quite honest, which I know is bad but I can’t help it. Honey badger don’t care. Sorry I’m overusing that phrase today guys, but I just remembered him and I really like it so I just need to use it as much as possible.

Morgan and Kelsey are coming to visit me Saturday, YAY! I’m ready to eat until our sides split. WOOO HOO!

Next week is going to be hell with an 8 page paper due, a Spanish test, a Spanish oral presentation, a photography assignment, and a video all due. FML. I hope I’m still alive at this point next week, guess we’ll find out.
