Oh my GOD.
How do I have the best blog commenters in the world? I just read through your comments on my last post and literally teared up because you're so amazing.
I feel like YouTube is this big scary world where anyone can come in and say what they like, mean or nice, but you guys over here are this tiny little microcosm of some of the most amazing people I have ever heard from.
So, thank you. Thank you for being the most wonderful people I've never met, and thanks for CONSTANTLY reminding me not to let little things get me down, because there are so many of you who just - gah - you just make everyone else seem so insignificant.
And thanks for making me cry in a public location, haha.
Friends is playing on the TV here in the Dome. At 9:30 in the morning. I love this country. You guys are OBSESSED with Friends.
Yesterday was probably the first really good day I've had in a week.
Emma came to my campus and picked me up (I know gas - excuse me, petrol - costs a fortune but I love driving around in her little car) and we drove to Rosi's house. Rosi took us to Nando's and gave us a tour of her town (so much history! I'm jealous! Shakespeare! And the set of Finding Neverland! And pretty places to sit by the water where we watched the sun go down!) and in general it felt so, so nice to be around people who know me and I wasn't meeting for the first time and I just felt comfortable.
She took us to this really fun, sort of modern colorful bar (I dont know what to call it. A bar? It wasn't a pub, because pubs in my eye are dark and kind of dingy - whatever, it was called Revolution, and it was essentially a Vodka place) and we had a BLAST. Rosi and I bought drinks with silly names (Strawberry Woo Woo and Pretty Pretty Bang Bang) and we talked and shared brownies that were too expensive and then this guy came up to play live music, and he played the perfect mix of depressing music and feel good music so we laughed and cried and sang along and I wish I could spend the whole rest of my trip with these girls.
They were depressed because they both just got back from a long trip in America, and I have this overwhelming urge to be smothered in the love of my Wizard Rock friends, so when they guy started playing the California-y theme from the OC, we were all a mess. Hahah.
It was so much fun. This is why I came to London. This is the kind of time I am supposed to be having.
Today I leave for Edinburgh and I MISS EIA AHHHHH I GET TO SEE HER TONIGHT.
We don't do well being apart after living together for 10 months or so (how long has it been now? Since last September... oh wow, almost a year.)
Okay, I have a million more emails to write and class in 25 minutes, that is all for nooow.
Edit: Oh yeah oh yeah - I couldn't WAIT to tell you guys this. Yesterday when Emma and I were driving, I saw an old woman (probably about 75) walking her dog... in a stroller. The dog was IN THE STROLLER. I don't see what either party was getting out of this endeavor. London is amazing.
