I leave in 2.5 weeks. I can’t believe the semester’s almost over…. And I had the revelation on Monday after turning in my portfolio that I don’t want to go home.
At least not long term. Visit home, yes. Ideally everyone should come here and visit me. But I don’t want to leave London. I like it here. I, in fact, love it here. I like my job (especially on days like today. my boss found out that i had never seen Diagnosis Murder and didn’t know who Quincy was. He litteraly put his head in his hands, jumped out of his chair, and walked out of the tiny office. Normally he’s very calm. I think the Christmas spirit is getting to him…). But yeah, I love London and am seriously considering grad school here….
In other news, Wales was fun. I have pictures, but I’m too lazy to take them off of my camera. I also have knitting that needs to be photographed. I have some Christmas presents to finish, and some to get. YAY Christmas shopping! I’m so excited that I can listen to Christmas music now and not feel crazy.
And next week I get to learn about British Christmas traditions… My boss is bringing Minced Pies. Sadly I don’t think he’ll be bringing mulled wine though. That would not motivate anyone to work… hehe. Any suggestions on American Christmas traditions or food that I can share?
I was going to put something here, but I can’t remember what. So I’ll leave you with a quote from Kathleen. This is what she said to me when I ran into her on my way to get my laundry:
“Hey! I was just thinking about you! So, I’ve decided that you’re going to marry someone with teenagers and live happily ever after… Don’t ask me how I came up with that!”
And this is my office…
and a quote from my boss today:
“We have British size fridges. You have American sized fridges as big as a house!”
