Free Bulmers? Don't mind if I do.

Since getting into town all I can say is whirlwind. Yesterday after we (my roommate Danielle and I) landed and the fabulous Alex (her boyfriend) picked us up from Heathrow, we dropped off our bags at his house. It was everything we could do to keep really busy and not go home in the middle of the day and sleep thus completely screwing up our sleep cycles. So by keep busy I mean, played volleyball in Trafalgar Square, got lunch, walked around, and went to a Bulmers tasting experiment, where they were giving away free Bulmers cider. Can I get a hell yea?
Spike Contest: Im watching it about to go over and miss the mark by 2 inches....

Experimenters wanted, don't mind if I do.

Bulmers for all!
Today was another busy day, moved into our flat, unpacked, got necessities, picked up a new UK phone, went to the grocery store and now laying in bed at 9:45 on a Friday night, about to pass out. Don't worry I will make up for it another Friday night, and another and maybe a few weekdays nights in-between. Homie ain't playin'.

Well I am off to bed, about assume the starfish position. (if you don't know what starfishing see diagram below except I am the man and there is no bleary eyed woman in bed with me...)

Back to London Town

It has been just about six months since I made a return to my beloved U.S., being the very lucky law student that I am, I am returning to London for another study abroad semester. I cannot even begin to say how excited I am, that being said, there is a small damper on said arrival with London having been taken over by chavs, hoodies, and for my American readers and friends punk ass kids rioting, looting and setting things on fire. Hopefully that will end as quickly as it started and I can get focused on the important things in life, like Gator football season starting in a few weeks, my internship at the UN's human trafficking division in Vienna, finding Prince Charming, pub hopping, shopping and school (the obligatory mention and "ugh")

Leaving tomorrow and still have to put some finishing touches on packing. Much different than last year when I packed two huge bags, wore nothing that I brought with me and wanted to go shopping every other minute. So this year I am packing light so that I can still do absurd amounts of shopping but wont have to wear 35 layers of clothing on the way home, to say I looked homeless would have been a huge understatement.

With all of this said, I'm off to go plan an outfit for the trip... do you think this is too much?

Cheers y'all!
