Quote by Ben Franklin
I keep forgetting that I’m 8 hours ahead of everyone on the west coast. 8 hours. That’s a third of a day ahead of people. While everyone back home is preparing for their July 4th shenanigans, it’s almost July 5th in England & I have 17 hours to write my paper. Even though time is going by really slowly for me, I’m definitely wasting it. It’s a shame we have to keep reminding ourselves that the time we waste will never come back. You’d think we’d be more careful with how we spend it, but I suppose our lives are so long that we don’t see any reason to spend every second of it wisely. I probably wouldn’t have a blog if I decided to spend my time more wisely. Or I probably would’ve finished my 1000 word essay by now. WHY AM I SO STUPID?! I haven’t even finished editing pictures yet & I’ve had so much free time. Stalk more later. I swear, next post will be well worth the wait for a blizzard of pictures.

After seeing this touristy Asian couple having a sassy photoshoot, we decided to take “fashion blog” pictures of Sara. Girlfriend looks totes casual & cute in her normal wear out on a day trip to Brighton. Up next will be Olivia’s “Bummin’ Around in Lewes” look featuring her Boys Like Girls shorts & whatever top she felt like putting on.
I’ll post pictures from London, Brighton, & tonight’s homemade dinner later. I have a paper due at 4 PM Thursday & I need to sleep. Stalk more later (new catch phrase or what? So fetch, right?). Tootles!
L-R: Sara, Me, & Olivia taking a shot of rum
I have over 500 pictures to sort through from the last two days. Forgive me if I lag – I do still have school to study for, you know! Here are some things to look forward to:
- More pictures
- Advice & Stereotypes from Family & Friends: Not All Advice is Good Advice
- Sara’s UK Fashion Blog
- Olivia’s English Life: The Pros & Cons
- Olivia’s Many Faces
- Our Life in England in Memes
Oh England, you make us so creative. Additional albums have been added & a video of us ghost hunting.
Stalk more later. Cheers!
Flying off to England
On June 24th, I arrived at Heathrow Airport in London & settled into my flat at the University of Sussex in Brighton. My building is newly built so my room has an en-suite bathroom. En-suite bathroom = no queue for the shower = amazing. The campus is kind of in the middle of nowhere, consequently surrounded by the countryside. Lots of rabbits, squirrels, giant seagulls, & cows roam around. True story: I practically got attacked by a giant seagull the other day. I guess it really wanted my cinnamon roll. Aside from that, I absolutely love it here. Olivia & I don’t want to go home in 9 weeks! If I convince a European to marry me, can I get citizenship? Does it work like that? No? Seriously? I hate you.
Finally got the internet to work, but because it’s the uni’s server, I can’t connect to my FTP server, which means I have to tediously upload each picture instead of batches of it. Too sleepy to upload more pictures. Two albums are all you get for now. Stalk more later.
