London Adventures – Jan 29

Happy Sunday everyone!

This past week was pretty laid back for the most part. School was good! I love my classes which makes sitting in class a lot more tolerable. In all three years of being in college, I have never been late to a class… until this last Thursday. My roommate Josie and I were at the tube (subway) station and we got on the tube like we do every day, when we realized that we got on the tube that was going the opposite direction of where we needed to be going. So basically we had to get off the first tube we got on, get on another one to go back to the station we started at, get on the tube we were originally supposed to be on, and then we finally ended up at a stop by school. When we walked out of the station, we realized we came out on a different street than we were used to and had no idea how to get to school from where we were… By the time I got to school, I walked into class 15 minutes late, and my class was taking a quiz. Don’t worry, I was still able to take the quiz… I even got an A on it! (See dad, I can keep my grades up here)

This weekend we celebrated the Chinese New Year by going to the Magical Lantern Festival. It was so fun! It felt like Christmas, just because it was a path that you walk along and there were a ton of lights. There was an ice bar there also, so my roommates and I went to that too and sat in a -10 degree room made out of ice for 25 minutes. It still seemed to be a lot more tolerable than a Minnesota winter… (Minnesota weather is the one thing I do not miss about home)

Saturday we went to visit Westminster Abbey and it was by far the most beautiful building I have ever seen in my entire life. We weren’t allowed to take pictures inside, so I don’t have any of those to share, but I included one of the outside! Some of the most famous, influential people in London are buried in Westminster Abbey, including one of my favorite authors, C.S. Lewis. I also stood where Kate and William stood when they said “I do”, so that’s kinda cool I guess…

Today I went to church and that was great. It’s nice to be able to do something that I would normally do back home, here in London. It adds a sense of comfortability to a time of uncomfortableness.

I FaceTimed my mom today and she put my dogs on the screen and it made me so happy. I miss them a lot.

On Thursday night, one of my favorite bands The Head and The Heart are here and I get to see them in concert, so I cannot wait for that. And then…. I’M GOING TO PARIS FOR THE WEEKEND! If you couldn’t tell, I’m a little excited for that…

Get ready for all the pictures/stories from my weekend getaway.

Hope you guys are well.

Until next time,

Cheers, Ya’ll
