Days 3, 4, & 5

Tuesday:
My classes started and I love them. I love Brit. Lit. and the Religion class sounds really interesting. But, I love Professor Howe the most, she is the cutest lady. After class we decided to head to Harrod's, but before that I had to go to the kitchen and make myself a sandwich. I am always hungry, always. Why? Oh, because the food at the centre reminds me of girls camp, which makes me wish I couldn't taste, anyway Harrod's. It's a famous department store, so naturally I wanted to move in. The basement is full of gourmet chocolate, cupcakes, and basically every dessert you would ever want to eat. It was beautiful, and I would show you but I didn't take any pictures at Harrod's because it's a classy place. I did buy a box of belgian chocolates that were very, very tasty. Dinner followed, and then homemade ice cream in the Theatre District. Did you know that Chicago, Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Hairspray, Jersey Boys, and Legally Blonde are all playing in London right now? We've decided to go to one show a week, and I have never been more excited in my life. Plus we get student rate tickets, which are less than half price because the english love students.
I did take this one picture inside Harrod's, but that's because this bear is practically a celebrity siting...
Wednesday:
More classes, that I think will be great. After class we took the tube to a store called Primark. A lot of people compare it to Forever 21. It's cheap like Forever 21, but it doesn't have all of that crazy, ghetto, bootylicious, rhinestoned out club wear....so it's better. I bought two of the cutest dresses my closet has ever seen. I feel like I need to take a picture of them just to document(for posterity) how great they look. Last night we went to see Big Ben, and he is a handsome fellow. He's extremely hard to photograph at night though...
Thursday:
Class. We went to a pub for lunch called the Phoenix. It was a really funny pub. I ordered something called a "New York" chicken, but it was just a regular chicken with some bacon and cheese on it. It looked crazy, and I doubt they serve it in New York. There were also some awesome 80s rock music videos playing on every t.v. We left the pub with every intention of finding a grocery store(so that we could buy some food that would NOT make us want to die), but ended up at H&M. The H&M clothes here are much cuter, but I left empty-handed. Tonight we tried to go see a show at some pub, but we got lost on the tube. I feel like we get lost on the tube a lot, and every underground assistance employee we ask hates americans...

Tomorrow we're going to the Tower of London which will be spooky and cool, and then hopefully Chicago!
