Its been a busy couple of days! Yesterday, I went on a field trip for my Architecture class to the Royal Courts of Justice. The building was BEAUTIFUL!! It was dreadfully cold though and we had to stand outside and take notes for like an hour. Uggg I thought my hands and toes were gonna fall off! But the building and the courts really were amazing.
Today, Angela (American from the flat across the hall) and I went to the Victoria and Albert museum. I really liked it! It was pretty different from the British museum. They had designs and clothes from several different centuries, which was pretty cool. Andja, from SU, would have LOVED it. I had to go see the Portrait Gallery for my Performance in History class, so we made sure to do that. Before my next class on Tuesday, I have to memorize a few lines and be able to pose like some of the statues from the 18th century. When I am ever going to need to know how to do that as a PA?! Whatever, its kind of cool. The V&A had a special exhibition called Hollywood Costumes, which looked SO cool. They have designs and costumes from over 100 major films. Like Titanic, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Twilight, Harry Potter, Dreamgirls, Wizard of Oz, pretty much anything you can think of. Unfortunately, we decided sleeping in would be a good idea, so they were sold out for the day. We'll be going back next week! Instead, we explored the collection on Britain from 1500-1760, so of course I loved it. They had stuff from Henry VIII's reign and the Elizabethan era. So cool! Kaitlyn, you would have died. You HAVE to come see it when you get here. The medieval Britain exhibit was pretty amazing too!
Later tonight, I met up with some of my friends from my Arcadia program and went to the pub. We've all been so busy, it's been a while since we'd been able to hang out. It was a fun night catching up with all of them! Tomorrow there's supposed to be a "huge" snowstorm (meaning like 2-4 inches, kind of pathetic), but apparently everything shuts down, so we might be kind of stuck on campus tomorrow. Which is probably good, I'm not completely caught up on all my reading. We're planning on going to Edinburgh, Scotland a week from tomorrow for the weekend, so I'm really excited about that!
