In case anyone was wondering, this is the progress they've made on "fixing my radiator" thus far.
What do I do, one might ask, when I'm not running around in the city, spending lots of money, and taking lots of pictures, and collecting memories to write here for the whole 3 people that will read about it later? A very good question, indeed. I sit. Sometimes I read, or watch someone else's movies, or listen to songs that remind me of being younger, or watch the people on the other side of the building through their windows, or eat biscuits, or take a nap... but mostly, I sit. I sit and think about my life, and how I don't know what's going on, and I freak out about it. Being here is hard... I mean, it's not scary by any means, and I don't think I'm necessarily suffering from homesickness or culture shock anymore, but I have SO much more time to myself in my room than I ever had in Irvine.

.. more time to think about my priorities, and my relationships with everyone in my life, and whether what I'm doing the right things.... blah blah blah, I'm sure this is not exciting to read, I just wanted to make sure that my three fans that read this know that I don't just run around the city all the time... At least half of the time I am sitting in my room going crazy and trying to figure my life out, and wondering what it's going to be like when I go back, and trying to cope with how much I feel like I've already changed in the one month I've been here... GAH.

In other news, Nathan and I took a little break from sitting in our rooms and went on a walk in the park on campus. We originally went on a search to go climb trees, but ended up trying to get ourselves lost in the woods. We were partially successful. I feel really lucky that I get to stay somewhere where I can enjoy the "English countryside," and be a tube ride away from the middle of the city.

i love the radiator photo. i prob shouldn't laugh.. but it is funny.. sorry.

these changes you talk about - changes like when you come back you're going to want to change majors or you have a new idea of what you want to do when you get out?

Change is good. I hate change, but I do understand that it's good a lot of the time. It's nice to take a step back in life so you can really see clearly. Whatever you end up realizing at the end of this, i promise it will be for the better and you'll really appreciate the fact that you had the oppertunity to think about life the way you are.

If you're ever bored, i'm usually always on and not doing anything too important. Anything to interrupt Drama 40 readings.... Miss you.
