I wasn't going to blog tonight, because it's late and I'm tired, but then I found this video and I just had to say something about it. I have no idea who any of these girls are, but they made me a video being cute and sending me well wishes when they didn't even know what was wrong with me, and everything about the video is just adorable and cuddly and wonderful.
Sometimes I really love the Internet.
Speaking of loving the Internet... for some reason, out of nowhere, after 3 weeks of battling lack of wifi and having to walk with my computer over to the Dome to check email.... suddenly tonight i turned on my laptop and there it was - a signal.
SO I AM LYING IN MY BED AT MY FLAT ON CAMPUS AND NOW I WISH MY COURSE WAS A MONTH LONGER. xD
No, I am definitely glad the school part of this trip is drawing to a close. Even though I did bond with one of my flatmates tonight over how stupid boys can be - turns out she was dating a boy that is here with us on the trip (I had no idea) and he dumped her before the trip even began, so it's been awkward and bad and not what she expected and I am just so sick of boys being so TYPICAL like this.
In other news, Eia and I just power-planned more trip stuff via skype (Dublin Sep 2-4, then ROME! Nothing is set in stone yet after that but we're working on it) and I should probably go to bed soon because we have the war museum tomorrow but I am so excited about this wifi that I can't help but stay online a bit longer. I really like that I talk in complete run-on sentences when I am excited.
I found out today that Jerry is coming to Summer in the City and that made me very happy, 1. because one afternoon was not enough time with my dear friend jerryhcooke and 2. I'm still incredibly nervous to attend and to be in the same place as Alex and to generally not know how I am going to handle that situation. Also, I always seem to forget to give Jerry shoutouts when he deserves them, so there you go, whiner-face.
There were a lot of little anecdotes I wanted to remember to write about today but they've all slipped my mind. I suppose a play-by-play will have to suffice. After class, a bunch of us went to Brick Lane and wandered around, and then (even though I'd seen it before) I went with my friends Rowena, Nikki and Lauren to Big Ben and the London Eye. Then we went to the Tower of London and admired the castle, and took pictures in front of London Bridge. Proper tourists. :) We were going to continue walking toward the bridge but then some police officers ushered us back the way we came because of an "incident", but when we'd made it back to the Tower of London, they'd shut the gate. I remember telling my friends that I felt like a Sim, trapped in an enclosed space and not knowing where to go, because everyone was just kind of wandering aimlessly but not actually saying anything because we were all clearly trapped but no one knew what to do about it and no one wanted to speak up.
Finally they let us out. xD
We took the trains home and now we're right back where we started - in my room with the GLORIOUS WIFI.
Also - I need to look into this, but I heard from someone that they're opening a Chipotle in London -- in SEPTEMBER? That potentially means while I am still here. In fact - two points to the first person to verify or disprove that in the comments. I have a craving.
This whole blog entry was utterly pointless. I'm going to bed.
