today started out like any normal day. wake up. shower. breakfast on the go. class. but it ended much different.
class was shorter than usual. we talked about cherry orchard. and then about travel week. our directors are very good at trying to instill fear into our little hearts. they do a fairly good job i must say. the best part was when phil taught us how to say leave me alone in french followed by how to say f-off, if they dont leave after the first one. i died laughing.
we then rushed home to pack, get ready, and say goodbye to people. and then it was off to victoria station. we made a pit stop at tesco for some last minute chocolate. i got a kit kat, i heard they were supposed to be better here but i think i like the ones in america better. and some cadbury eggs (still on sale) for the week in italy. at victoria we tried pastys for the first time. they are kind of like a calzone but have mushy yumminess inside. they were delicious but way hot (temperature wise) and afterwards we were soooo full.
|i love this girl. we are cool.|
|yay for internet computers giving one last chance to say goodbye|
|sad to be with no contact for the week|
|but so so excited to be going to ROME|

|waiting at the gate in the mad rush of people. not so happy to be standing for so long with a heavy backpack.|
|about to board!|
|yay cadbury. boo failing at eating.|
the room itself was great. we had bunk beds, i called the top and cali indulged me. yes, i am ridiculous and always wanted a bunk bed when i was younger. silly, right. i regretted this "dibsing" when climbing up and realizing how they were not very sturdy and very squeaky. and i mean squeaky. any time anyone moved an inch there was a lovely squeak. but it was still sooo exciting to be so high. the room didnt have any curtains, and either did the bathroom, but luckily it just looked out to an alleyway and the windows of the building across the way were frosted. when you flushed the toilet it sounded as if there was a waterfall- it scared me the first time, but it was cheap, and a great location, and the people were absolutely wonderful and helpful. i would recommend it to someone.

that night we fell asleep to the sound of squeaking beds and loud music from the club below us. a perfect lullaby
