Just got back from seeing "The Phantom of the Opera"!!!! It was amazing...seriously...we sat right under the chandalere (sp?). When it fell it was so scary! We also went to the British Museum today where I got to see the Rosetta Stone and mummies and was great. Wellll....I don't know when I'll have internet access again so consider this a rare gift, haha.
Love you all!

Soooooo, I'm here...and it's amazing. The keyboards are wierd sorry in advance for any weird misspellings haha. The flight from Cincinnati was long but I was able to sleep for most of it. We got here around 9am....1am your time lol. Driving into London I was in shock and how different everything was from in the States. Outisde of London, everything looks just like it does in "Babe" know the movie about the pig? it's so cute haha. Today we walked around the Parliment Building (the most beautiful building ever!) and saw Buckingham Palace (not really all it's cracked up to be). We walked thorugh St. James Park which is beautiful. There are tons of little parks here that are so cute! Just like the ones in Notting Hill, if you've ever seen that movie. After our walk we checked into the Hostel and then my friends and I headed out for a little adventure. We are staying right near the Victoria Line Station so we went there and bought metro was a little intense...but we figured it out after a few tries haha. For dinner I bought a chicken and vegetable's like a hand-held chicken pot good! After eating we got on the metro and headed to St. Paul's cathedral. It's the same cathedral where they sing "Feed the Birds" in Mary we had our own little musical party. The cathedral is huge and you can see it from everywhere! Then we walked to The Globe Theater, a replica of the theater that Shakespear's plays were originally performed in. We had some time before the show started so some of us walked around down random streets to see what we could find. We found this awesome street thing that was lined with cute little restaurants and a huge hat store. Then we went and saw "Romeo and Juliet" at the was amazing! We were standing right in front of the stage. The actors were way good and the show was really good. I didn't stay for the whole thing because I was exhausted and really gross from being on planes/shuttles for over 24 hours. So my friends and I headed home. Tomorrow we are headed to the British Museum and the Tate Modern! And then I get to see Phantom of the Opera! I'm soso excited. London is a beautiful city and I can't wait to come back again to explore more!
Love you all!

This one’s for Ben…

So I've been asked to blog more…as usual. But there isn't really much to say that this person doesn't already know about me Lol. I'm just going to school during the day and having fun all night…as usual. Classes are going very well. I'm in this travel studies class that is so fun! Pretty much all we do is talk to two hours a day about the different works of art we each want to see or travel tips we have for each other. I still feel way unprepared for this trip, but I figure I will never really feel totally prepared until I'm an experienced traveler. There is just so much I want to do while I'm there and not nearly enough time! My friends and I had a meeting yesterday to plan out what museums we wanted to go to and we had to make two lists: a "This Time" list and a "Next Time" list. Sadly, our "Next Time" list kept growing longer and longer….I guess that just means I'm destined to go back!

So if any of you know me…you know I love Anne of Green Gables. She has red hair, what can I say :) There's a couple parts where she acts out the poem The Lady Of Shallot:

Anyway…I'm way excited because I get to see an amazing painting by John William Waterhouse that depicts the Lady of Shallot floating down the river…to her death…how sad. She also has red hair in the painting so that is pretty sweet.

Soooooo…tonight was pretty fun. I got some Taco Bell with this pretty awesome person and then we went to [fake] Disneyland…gah! It was so cute! And then I got to play Fill It! for a little bit, but I wasn't really at the top of my game since I haven't played in awhile. Then we watched HSM2….which was framazing….as usual. And then I got lots of new music! Yay that's always fun! It was great.

Kay, wow long post. now I have lots of hw…wish me luck mi amigos

I Say Goodbye, and You Say Hello....

School School School School. Oh man...this weekend was my only break between semesters...but it was way way fun. I went grocery shopping, learned I want to be a mechanic, ate/made lots of good food, learned how to twitter, took multiple naps a day, watched "Taken," flew a helicopter, ate lots and lots of candy, got googled lol, listened to lots of music, watched HSM3, and prolly much more stuff that I just can't think of right now.

So I just had my first meeting of the semester for the European Tour. I can't believe I leave in two weeks! Gah, it's coming to fast...there's to much to do before I leave that I don't wanna do. My classes should be fun though. The teachers are hilariouse! I can't wait to finally be in Europe. I've been waiting so so long!

Kay welllll...I don't really have anything exciting that I want to share with the world right now. So I guess I'll end this here. I hope everyone had a fun Easter, I missed you all!

Deja Vu

Save me. I'm back. In the dorms. This time I'm armed only with a microwave and a teeny-tiny fridge. You can only imagine how excited I was when I saw my bunk bed...I thought I had excaped from those. Other then that though...there's nothing really to complain about. Since I'm the first one here I got to pick out which bed I wanted and which fridge I wanted...haha. Luckily I had this amazing guy here who was able to help me move my stuff...and my fridge :) And being here means I'm just that much closer to Europe! So exciting. Kay, well, I better get back to organizing my new life here at Chapman Hall. Love you all!

It's That Time Of Year

Finals week. Here we go. So pretty much this semester has been framazing...and now I'm paying for it in my Spanish class. But's all about personal growth right?

This weekend was so fun. I had a date, watched conference, went to Idaho Falls and bought new pants and new shoes. Ate lots and lots of good food. Got to see Norman, Nathan, Adam, and Kyle! That was way exciting. And now the weekend is over...and reality is kicking in. In four days Melissa is leaving me! And I will be leaving of the coolest places on this planet. I just found out that I have to get out of here by Friday...not cool...and I'm moving back to the dorms...woot. Luckily I know some amazing people that are letting me crash at their house when I need a kitchen.

Guess who got into the Bachelor of Fine Arts program!! That's right....I did. It was really exciting and so scary at the same time. I was so nervouse to open the letter...I almost didn't open it. And then Lezlie made me. As soon as I saw the word "Congratulations" I did the most amazing happy dance you will ever see...right in the middle of the parking lot. So now I don't have to worry anymore. I have the next few years planned out for me. So exciting!

I leave for Europe in three weeks! I'm so excited...but also so nervouse. What if I get sick in another country, on another continent! I guess I really shouldn't worry about that...but still. Gah, that reminds me of how much I still have to do to get ready.

Anyways...there is so much more I could write about right now...but I have printmaking class in 27 minutes....and yah. If you wanna be awesome you can call me and I'll tell you more about my exciting life.
