Hmmm, had just written a post when I had to check out the spelling for a word (licorice, how do you spell it, liquorice, licouriqe???!) when everything disappeared, not even saved as draft. Maybe it’s published, but am too afraid of changing windows now if it’d be gone again. Ah, doesn’t matter. Anyway, the whole point in checking out the spelling for licorice (?) is that we are now stocked up, thanks to james since he went to Sweden with the sole purpose to get me some last week (maybe not). And snus. I’m living with a constant worry of running out of snus. But for now, I’m all set. The only worrying thing is that our Zoegas is running out, I think we’ll have to go to the Swedish shop today or tomorrow to avoid the anti-christ.
The time is really flying by, I know everyone says it, but it’s so true. I’m in my 7th of 11 teaching weeks. It’s absolutely mad! And I still haven’t been to the theatres!! I can’t wait to go, there’s so much I want to see: Billy Elliot, Wicked, Matilda, The Lion Kind, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory etc etc etc… So much to do, so little time.
Anyway, me and jamsie-boy went to westminister the other day, it was really nice! And like, the weather is so lovely here! I know, not as lovely as I’m sure it is in like Australia or Jamaica or where other exchange students are, but it’s like mild and nice (except for the floodings…). Oh yeah, hah, speaking of floodings, the other week they closed down the Victoria line (the only tube line to brixton) due to ‘floodings’. You’ve might have heard it already, but the flooding was actually loads and loads of concrete which had leaked into the control room. Can you imagine?? Like how does it even happen in the first place. They worked with it all night and the line was up and running the following day, which is well impressive. Apparently was the key ingredient for the solution sugar. I don’t understand it, but am impressed nevertheless.
Some snap shots from the previous week (or, from one day last week)!
Good old Big Ben
James: “Did you get the London Eye and the statute?”
Me: “Yeah, it turned out well nice”
No, it’s not the best picture ever, but at least I got the guy in the hat.
Right, tonight I’m going to the choir with my gals. I really love it here in London, I want to stay forever. Am just gonna try to be employable and get an internship this autumn (oh the constant source of anxiety). It’ll work out. Oh yeah, tried to take some pictures of myself as I realised I don’t have any here. It didn’t turn out very well:
I look sad and a bit like a boy.
Trying to look more feminine with my hair down, doesn’t work.
Instead, here’s a pick of me and james:
