A Day In Class

Time is a very slippery thing. I know I’ve been here a full week. The first day however, was by far the longest. I think that day lasted about seven weeks. However the rest of this week flew by incredibly fast and I know I’ll look back on the last day and say that it…

Cheeky Weekend Update

Friday marked our first day of having no class meeting. So being all cheeky-like I decided to sleep in really late. Later I cheekily decided to take a very cheeky walk through Regent’s park so I could actually get some pictures of of all the cheeky nature it contained. Then a group of us decided…

Empty Frames

Today we found ourselves once again in a museum. This time it was the National Gallery. It has a large collection of paintings from the 13th to the 19th century.

My plane to London named "Miss Sunshine"

Flight #1 I was looking forward to flying on a plane again, but I had no idea how much I would enjoy staring out the window. I haven’t flown since I was five years old. It was like a free form roller coaster. Completely off the rails! When we were still on the ground and…

I Am So Not Ready

It’s late. Later than I’d like to admit right now, but I still can’t fall asleep. I’d enlighten you by revealing how many hours remain before my flight leaves, but I can’t bring myself to do the math at this point. Basically, I leave very soon. My cousin is getting married tomorrow. I’m going to…
