I've just noticed that it has been exactly one month since my last post, and since I'm sick with the flu (and feeling bad for myself as a result), I decided to write again.
The past month has been insanely busy. First off, London was AMAZING! I can't wait to go back next year. I'm one of those people who hates standing out as a tourist, so I quickly decided to blend in by buying a pair of boots, listening to my ipod and ignoring others on the underground, and walking across the street when the "don't walk" light was clearly lit. I know, I'm such a rebel. Anyways, these actions helped me to fit in, despite my adorable Canadian accent. Of course, I did all the touristy things, such as go to see the Tower of London, which as a history nerd I absolutely loved. It was super tourist-ish (the worst fact being that they had a mascot which was a cartoon raven named Thor...it seems wrong somehow for a former prison) but enjoyable nonetheless. I also enjoyed being part of an anti-war protest at Trafalgar Square. I stumbled upon it accidentally, and was suddenly swept up in the wave of 100,000 angry protesters. Good times! :)
Melissa and I have been searching for apartments for the past few weeks, and were getting stressed about it. Luckily we finally found a great place for a reasonable price downtown. The building is one of the ugliest things I have ever viewed from the outside, but everything is very modern and nice inside, which is far more important. About 5 weeks until we can finally move in.
I am currently obsessed with Lily Allen and Beck. Other faves are Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Mika. I'm beginning to feel that I spend far too much time searching for new music...
