just another rainy day here!

Today i woke up and its cloudy, again, big suprise. I was really tired b/c the street the hostel is on is soo busy all the time, i think there were 2 times last night of actual quiet time and it only lasted for a min. People talking so loud and police sirens and anything u can think of, oh and they also collect trash at nights here. So i decided i can take a leisure day and lay in bed a lil. So thats what i did, i went down and grabbed a croissant and some oj and took it back to bed and slept in, felt great. I then got up and really really did not want to take a shower. I detest the showers here. They are so gross, as i have said b4. Now i know people don't want to know this, but its not hot here and so its not like im all grimey or anything but i just washed up and decided , no shower today.

I threw on some clothes and then went out.

I took the tube to oxford st, which is this long street with nothing but shopping on it. they have everything, from trendy lil shops to designer names. Now my goal was to window shop, but come on, im in London, one of the fashion capitols of the world. so i got a cute top and a cute ring. instant retail therapy! i had been feeling a lil homesick last night, which i will admit and today made me feel much better. Its not that i don't love it here, but i will be honest, at times its kinda scary. London it crazy busy and people are always in a rush. Can kinda make u feel a lil fish in a mamoth sized pond. but in general i always get over it and my adventourous side, which brought me here in the first place kicks in. so i spent the whole afternoon shopping, not really buying more, just looking around everywhere. well tomrw is my last day here in london and then im off to barcelona. im off to find a laundry place right now :)
