I haven't had time to blog at all. xD
Let me see if I can do a quick summary of what I have been up to in the 15 minutes I have before I need to catch a bus over to the Maritime campus in Greenwich. We have to get up 40 minutes earlier which is annoying, but on the plus side there is wifi everywhere over on that campus, so my iPod Touch is connected all day. I am such a nerd. xD Also they're filming some Bollywood movie on campus and apparently some really famous Indian movie stars are walking around. I've never heard of them though.
Okay. Saturday Alex and I woke up early and went to Elephant & Castle to go to Tomorrow's Web, which was a conference about youth in emerging media and young entrepreneurs and stuff. Basically Charlie was doing a talk so we went to support him, and Alex somehow ended up on a panel so he got to discuss things with some other guys regarding Media. Some of it was a little dull, but a lot of it was actually really interesting, and a lot of these people were pretty inspiring. I don't think I could ever run my own intense freelance business like these people, but I did really admire their initiative to be in charge or themselves and work hard to do things they enjoy instead of accepting some crappy job. That's something I can identify with for sure.
The only big anecdote I remember from Saturday was that Alex had to pay 20p to go to the bathroom in a shopping center, and I was outraged. I didn't know there were places that actually made you do that! I refused to go, and waited outside.
Oh and we met Jon from Dailybooth. That was fun. :D
That night Charlie came and spent the night with us; I don't even remember what we did. I video chatted with my parents for awhile, which was nice, and then I watched the boys play video games. Or something.
Sunday was more video games, and I got the boys to take me to Romford to do a bit of shopping, but I kind of felt like I was shopping by myself (boys xD) which wasn't very fun. We watched a bit of the Brewery's Next Top Singer or whatever it was called (it was awful) and wandered around (Alex seems to think Romford is an unremarkable town, but I thought it was cute. Every town in London is exciting to me) and then we went back to Alex's house.
It took awhile for me to get back to my campus that night, as I had my first experience with train closures and wrestling the public transport service to get home (I really missed my Fiesta that night) but eventually I got home around 11.
Monday we had class at the big campus in Greenwich (as I said before) and afterward, went to see Abbey Road. It was literally just a crosswalk on a street, but it was so exciting. We got pictures. I was surprised; there were about 20 other people there taking pictures as well. There must just be a constant stream of tourists. The cars on that street HATE TOURISTS. We didn't care one bit; their fault for living near Abbey Road. xD
We signed the wall outside Abbey Road Studios and I wrote "Wizard Rock!", though someone on twitter told me the police paint over it every 3 years. That's sad.
That is all for now. Bye!
