Kari goes to Lincoln, England
It was a nice relaxing Saturday morning. I woke up at 1 - so nice. I called Sarah to see what she was up to. She told me that they were going to go to the castle and check that out because we had still not see it. The castle is at the top of steep hill. We took our time walking up the hill checking out shops and such. We finally got there and were taking pictures of the outside and they put out the closed sign as we were doing this. Sad - we'll just have to come back another time. After we walked back down the hill we went further in a direction that we had never gone - it was kind of fun. We saw these cute little houses - kind of like something out of a storybook! It was a lot of walking and I was tired when we got back. We had been walking for over three hours when we got back around 5! I came back and did the dishes because our kitchen was a mess and I couldn't even find a clean fork to eat with. Then I ate the rest of my chicken curry from the night before. I am excited for the Indian food on Monday night - I wonder where we are going. Jason had told us when we parted that he was going to have people over. I just killed time by looking at Facebook pictures and then cleaning out my email inbox, which I hadn't done since last fall. Must needed! I tried calling Jason around 10 and found out that he was already out at a Friends. I talked to Sarah and then I called my friend Lauren and they were both going to this club called the Delph, so that is where I decided to go. I wasn't that excited about walking there was myself but it's really close to my room and I didn't want to spend the night at home. Not to mention who likes to stand in the cue for over an hour by themselves? But luckily I knew a girl in the group behind me and started talking to her and then her mates started talking to me. So it wasn't that bad, it was nice having someone to talk to because I was in the cue for about an hour and 15min. When I finally got in there I couldn't find Sarah or Lauren. But I did run into Dave from my group for radio class. He was like are you lost? Well kind of - I'm looking for my friend. A little while after that I did find Sarah but I didn't really feel like dancing with her and her friends because I had already done that!! So I went back and talked to Dave and his friends again. He had to go to toilet so I was talking to Stacey and Hannah - they are on the rugby team. I stood there talking to them for a while and met a few of the guys on the rugby team. I liked talking to them. At this point I think Dave had left us to go dance with his friends. Dave & Stacey are flatmates and I think that Hannah doesn't live with them, she just knows Stacey from rugby. I had to go to toilet and get another drink. When I came back they were ready to dance and made me chug my red bull and vodka. They even sang some rugby warrior song for me - I couldn't hear it cuz I was concentrating on drinking that nasty stuff. I took a break and their other friend Sophie grabbed it and made me finish it. Then we danced - they are so fun and at one point when all of Dave's friends had left him he came and danced with us. I found my friend Lauren around 1am; I had been looking for her all night. They were up on stage dancing so I went and danced with her for a while. It was a really good night and Stacey and Hannah want me to join Rugby - we'll see, I think it could be fun. It would be fun to go out with them too. At the end of the night I said goodbye to everyone and ran into Jason and Harry. They were going to go to a party at this mansion. So I said sure. I wasn't ready for the night to be over yet. First we walked to Harry's house and some of the group was really drunk so it was kind of a pain walking there. We stopped at Harry's for a little while and continued to the mansion. It was a crazy place. There were so many rooms with people in them. We ended up sitting on a couch in this hallway for the longest time just chillin and talking. This house was crazy. I lost track of time and next thing I knew it was a little after 5 and was like guys, I am getting tired. Lets go. It was quite a walk home. And then I still had another 15 minute walk beyond their house. It was after 6 when I got home - what a crazy night. But it was a lot of fun!!!
