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!

Don’t Cry Over Spilt Tiramisu.

12 Nov

“Don’t cry over spilt milk” doesn’t make sense to me because I don’t drink milk, but “don’t cry over spilt tiramisu” does because I have cried over spilt tiramisu. I’m not necessarily proud of it, but I’m definitely not ashamed. I spent 3 hours beautifully crafty this tiramisu, I even made the pound cake form scratch, and when I was dusting the top with cocoa powder I spilt almost all of it in the sink. So yes I cried, but I think the real moral of this story is that its ok to cry over something that you spent a lot of time on/tried really hard on/cared a great deal about that didn’t go your way, however the key is to not keep on crying. So I guess what I’m really trying to say is don’t cry more than once over spilt tiramisu. I just think this is a good analogy for life.

I would like it to be known that this is the third week in a row I have blogged. SHOCKING, I KNOW.

This weekend we went up to the farm to visit my Grandma and Uncle. We got there Friday evening and had dinner. While eating I dropped food on myself (surprise surprise) and was subsequently asked if I was dating anyone… Clearly No. Lol.

Saturday I woke up pretty early (for a Saturday at least) and went outside and walked around. My mom was putting some rocks in a flowerbed so I helped a little with that, road the four-wheeler, harassed the cows, played with the BB kitties, and took some pictures. After lunch I took a substantial nap during the Mizzou game, which they won! When I woke up I went outside and did some more of the previous stated activities and after dinner we drove back home.

Sunday I slept in (hooray!) and went with Gentry to run a few errands. We ended up going to Target twice, the mall, and Taco Bell. I mainly got mini-shampoos and things for LONDON 2013 (#10days). We then went to my Grandma’s house for Sunday night dinner.

10 Library shifts, 5 tests, 5 quizzes, 2 Lab reports, and 1 paper until the end of the semester!

Keep it Classy.

P.P.S. Here’s a thing I found on Buzzfeed that I liked… I’m getting good at the whole angst-y 20 year old thing.
