After arriving in England the other day, I was far too exhausted to actually write. I’m still finding it hard, but more due to the much-increased sluggishness of my computer, so I’m writing these out on paper first to ensure that they posts get done.
No pictures for today, I’m afraid, but I plan to take some throughout.
I woke up about 6:30 GMT this morning, took a shower (LOVE having my own bathroom), and made myself an egg for breakfast. I then checked emails and read Anna Karenina until about eleven, when I decided I needed a nap, still tired from the day before.
I got up about 5 minutes to noon and made my way to the kitchen for the flat meeting. Met a Dutch boy (Hereto called ‘F’) and a girl from UC-Irvine (henceforth referenced as ‘T’).
After the meeting I decided I needed to eat before doing anything else. I went grocery shopping, got some things for lunch and dinner, and then went to the buss, rode into town, and bought a cell phone, a coin purse, and a couple of basic clerical things I hadn’t thought to bring with me.
When I got back, T and I decided to go into town after her class tomorrow and do a bit of exploring. Then I had dinner and socialized briefly with F and his friends before finishing Anna Karenina and attempting to Skype my mother.
As much as I do love my computer, I am fully aware of the state of this one… REALLY BAD.
In other news, a second chapter to my infamous fan fiction, The Forbidden Fruit, has been posted. I meant to have it done earlier, but travel seems to have taken a greater toll on me than usual.
I’m going to begin organizing my thesis in earnest and going over some secondary sources next, although not as quickly, given that I am also going to have studies and activities here. That’s about all I’ve got for today, hopefully more tales on the morrow.
