Normal Day in London

Hi guys,
Sorry I didn't update yesterday. Blogger was having some issues or maybe my computer, I don't know.
Today was our second day of classes. I am sad to say that I am not really enjoying classes. I feel like I would much rather be out exploring history than sitting in a classroom and I am also finding that the class really isn't my thing at all. The teacher is really talented but it just doesn't seem to fit me and my personality.
Had a really good lunch at the ULU pub today. Chicken Tikka Masala, it was awesome. I had it eaten in less than 5 min! Then went for a really nice walk in Russell Square park. Smelled the roses, lol, and was swarmed by pigeons. I love all the parks here and am going to make it a point to spend time visiting as many as possible.
After classes were over, my roomie and I went for some much needed supplies (hairdryer, allergy meds, crisps! etc.) at Tesco just north of our homestay. It was huge. Much larger than I expected in London but was nice that we didn't have to run all over. We have been trying to get all of our errands done since we got here on Saturday and it is good to be mostly done so we can settle in and focus on class and fun.
My home stay mum is a pretty good cook and made us bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potatoes and peas) for dinner tonight. Last night I had some really awesome Bread and Butter Pudding. I am really loving the food here.

  1. Loving the food?! :) Wow! Not something you usually hear from visitors to Britain LOL I must admit I'm jealous of the homestay bit -- we lived on campus, and while that was cool in a lot of ways, I would have loved to spend more time in a real home :) Sorry to hear your class isn't awesome -- I am willing to bet you'd have liked it okay stateside but the added distraction of being in London is what pushes it over from "good class" to "eh, would rather be elsewhere" I think even my class would have a hard time competing with London ;)
