I cannot even being to explain how weird it is being on my laptop in bed before going to sleep. I haven't really been able to do this for 3 weeks now since we don't have wifi in our flats at school. I am sleeping in a guest room and it's amazing because it has a double bed and it almost feels like home. I miss my bed at home. There's so much roooooom to stretch out. I could never, ever go back to a twin bed, which is what I have at school here.
Basically I haven't been writing much because I have some stuff going on, and so I haven't known what to say.
On Wednesday I was supposed to see Billy Elliot with my school friends but we couldn't get tickets so we bought them for Monday. Thursday we had our last day of class at the Greenwich campus, and while we were trying to take a group picture outside in front of the pretty old building, an emergency medical helicopter landed really close to us and it was really crazy. I've never been that close to a helicopter before, especially not one landing. And then cop cars were zipping about all over the place.
Anyway I don't know what happened, but I'm assuming it was one of the Bollywood actors, and I hope they're okay.
The rest of Thursday was not good, but it became better when Molly (meme) came to stay with me at my stupid little school campus and stayed with me (in my stupid little twin bed - I feel like we got closer that night, regardless of whether or not we wanted to) because the buses and trains don't run late enough. That brings us to today, where we spent the day at Topshop (I bought a jacket that was way too expensive, but whatever, I own something from Topshop now) and then went to her house. I really like Molly's house, because she has a lovely yard and it's not all cramped and small like most places I've seen closer to central London. Like beds, I enjoy houses that give you a bit of room to breathe. It's nice here.
We watched a lot of Friends today. I realized that I started religiously watching Friends somewhere around the last 4 seasons or so, but I haven't actually seen too many of the earlier episodes. I feel like someday when I have a lot of time, I should change that.
Oh and then we played Scattergories. I had never played before and it was a lot of fun. I liked being the only American playing with 3 British people, because I got a lot of extra points for words like Little Rock, Recess, Mt. St. Helens, and Frosties (of the Wendy's variety). Although I embarrased myself greatly when the letter was "D" and the category was "types of currency", and I said "drachma", and they all said "dollar".
...I didn't think of DOLLAR. I have been in England too long. Next thing I know I'll start measuring myself in stones.
Tomorrow Emma gets back to London and I get to see her and I can't WAIT. We have been talking about this summer London girl time for months and now that it's here we need it more than ever.
Next weekend I am seeing Eia in Edinburgh, and I am seriously counting the minutes. She posted a bunch of pictures on facebook of her trip so far, and it's BEAUTIFUL up there. Also I am excited to meet Liam. xD
