Arrival, Jetlagged, and Internet Issues

Well, this week has finally come! At first I couldn't believe it, and now I can't get enough of it. I did arrive safely with about nine other kids from my program that were on the same flight from JFK to Heathrow. So nice to travel in a big group. The flight was not to bad, however they were playing movies, but the volume in my particular was down :( So... I watched 'He's Just Not That Into You' with no volume multiple times. I actually sat by this nice older fellow who was traveling to see Wimbledon this week. It helped the time go by!

We made it to the Centre, got our bedding, room assignments, and got settled. Caitlin Porter in my bunk's great to spend time with her and get to know her better. She is one amazing girl! We organized our individual closets, drawer, and bed shelf. My favorite! I looovvve organizing, so it took my mind off of my exhaustion and fatigue. I am in a room with 7 other girls, we share 2 showers and 2 sinks. And...they are all quite clean! Another PLUS! The Centre is beautiful I will try to post pictures soon. Seems as if my computer will allow me to connect to the internet, but it's ridiculously SLOW...and usually never opens Internet Explorer. I have one of my tech-savvy professors working on this predicament as we speak! So I have alot of journaling to catch up on! I know pictures are what I like to look at the hopefully soon!

After that we decided to complete our First London Walk Tour to familiarize us with our new neighborhood. Haha first of all, we keep looking the wrong direction when we cross the street, because they drive on the opposite sides of the road. We have had some close calls! Needless to say, we are not local yet! This city is so much fun! I am in LOVE! The people I have interacted with thus far have all been extremely friendly and helpful. How grateful I am for the cross cultural experience to learn and grow on so many levels. I will take FULL advantage of it, no doubt.
