A few updates from across the pond:
My best friend and freshman year roommate Stacy arrives tomorrow morning to Londontown!! She will be spending her spring break with me and I can’t wait to spend time with her and show her all of my favorite spots in the city.
Mom and Mc are also arriving on Wednesday! So excited to be visited by three of my favorite people! Looking forward to good company, good food, and good wine and some adventures in the city!
Speaking of adventures, a few of my flat-mates and I are planning a trip to Edinburgh for a weekend soon. Also interested in going to visit Paris in May. I can’t think of anything lovelier than Paris in the springtime as a nice last excursion before heading home!

Just arrived back from my first art history class which met at the British Museum. Four hours of viewing different exhibits from ancient Greece and Rome was actually really interesting and more enjoyable than I imagined. It’s not even 2:00 and I already feel substantially more cultured. Still, the three most important lessons I walked away with are the following:
- I simply cannot function function in the morning without coffee and should stop testing myself to see if this changes.
- I want to see the Disney movie “Hercules” again. Soon.
- I absolutely cannot sketch. Exhibited by my pathetic attempt at The Parthenon,- but really that is such an unrealistic task to begin with though! Come on!
Off to dance class in Essex for the evening. With no classes tomorrow, I plan on starting out my weekend by a full day of exploring the shops of Oxford Streetl! Just another cultural experience!!

Saw this poem on a sign on the tube today and thought of everyone I’m missing at home…Don’t worry though, I’m definitely not disconsolate :)
"Loving the rituals that keep men close,
Nature created means for friends apart:
pan, paper, ink, the alphabet,
signs for the distant and disconsolate heart.”

Starbucks feels like my home away from home here- The coffee is even better in Europe, which almost makes up for the bland food.
