Hello there lovely ladies and gents, it’s been a fun filled week and I’m quite excited to tell you all about it.
On Monday, I went about my morning business: running, homework, getting ready. I made sure to shoot my Dad a Happy Birthday email (once again Daddy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!) Then it was time to head to Play Critique. Class was good, we talked about the play we had just seen and then we were let out a whole hour early. Win!!! The rest of the night was spent cooking dinner and just hanging out at the house.
Tuesday was productive day. The morning consisted of a workout, laundry, groceries, and work. I spent a majority of the day working on my History essay that was due on Tuesday. That pretty much used up most of the day, but then at 7:30 I had the privilege of attending another show for Play Critique. This one was called “Money the Gameshow” and took place at the Barbican Theatre in Shepherd’s Bush. The show was interactive and dealt with the concept of the market crash and hedge fund managers. It was a really amazing show and I enjoyed it immensely. It was also nice that the lead male had a lovely Scottish accent. After the show, Becca and I went to grab frozen yogurt from Snog in the Westfield Mall at Shepherd’s Bush but unfortunately they were closed. So we came up with a plan B. Cadbury McFlurries from McDonalds.
On Wednesday I worked on my homework in the morning before heading to my Creative Writing class in the afternoon. After heading home from class I had the amazing chance to go out to dinner with my Uncle Jeff and my Aunt Julie who were visiting London for 2 days. It was amazing to see them and we had so much fun. That night we went to a nearby Italian restaurant called Zizzi’s, which was delicious. And they were nice enough to spoil me and let me get a dessert to take home with me to eat while I worked on my homework. Not only that but they brought some comfort food from home…..EASY MAC!!!!!!!!! Words cannot describe my excitement.
Thursday was, as always, action packed. The day was jam packed with my Photography class and my History class. I got to finally turn in that history essay. After getting back from class I met up with my Uncle and Aunt. We headed towards Shepherd’s Bush and the Westfield Mall and found a fantastic Mexican Restaurant, called Wahacas. It was absolutely delicious. Good food and good company. After dinner, I took them to our favorite fro-yo place called Snog. It was sad saying goodbye to them, but fantastic to spend some time with them, as well as seeing someone from home.
Friday was jam-packed. That morning I woke up, got dressed up a little more than normal and headed out with my friends Becca and Jillian to London Fashion Weekend!!! We first planned to get there using the tube, but the train we needed only came every 20 minutes, and when it finally came it was so jam packed there was no way for the three of us to fit on. So we came up with a plan B. We got a taxi.
We arrived at Somerset House, and there was a huge line to the event. Once we finally got into the event, we picked up the tickets we had pre-ordered and headed to the first stop. The catwalk. It was a really cool experience to see the models actually walk the runway and it was so much fun. After the catwalk, there was tons of designer shopping. I bought a one of a kind giraffe scarf, that wasn’t too expensive. Promise. After deciding we couldn’t afford anything else, the three of us went looking for a place to eat before heading home. We grabbed thai food nearby, before heading back to the house. After a few hours of relaxation, Becca, Sheri, Sheri’s boyfriend, and I headed to a nearby restaurant for fish and chips, before heading to Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre to see Hamlet. The Rose was one of Shakespeare’s original theatres and it currently is an archeological site as well as a performance spot. The production of Hamlet was a more modern telling and the cast only featured 4 actors. So for example, Ophelia and the Queen were played by the same actress. The show was very cool, and also kind of cold because of the fact that more than half of the location was an archeological dig site, so in other words, no heating. But enduring the cold was definitely worth it to see the performance.
Unfortunately, I have no more adventure to tell about the weekend because I have spent the weekend locked in my room attempting to keep the contents of my stomach, well, in my stomach. So my tale for this week will end here. Be back to tell you more about my adventures later this week!
