wow its been a while since my last entry and im really sorry about that. my schedule is completely crazy and i feel like theres no time for me to get everything done. let me start with a few general comments then maybe later today i can update you on the last few days
my dorm: they finally cleaned the kitchen and we got a new toilet seat! im also getting used to the motion activated shower but its still kinda annoying. im pretty sure i have bed bugs in my room (yes dad, the bed bugs are bitting) because ive woken up the last few mornings with bumps and bites on my back and arms. but the people at the reception desk were really nice and said they are sending someone to fumigate my bed!
my class: so intense! we're already 1/4 the way through the semester and i don't think ive ever been presented so much information in such as short period of time. the class is really interesting (i have a paper due on monday about the economics of health care) but i wish i'd have some time to relax and enjoy everything around me. i also have a midterm on wednesday so hopefully early next week ill be focused enough to study really hard.
people: everyone is so friendly and wants to get to know you which is awesome for me! the strange thing is that so many people come to LSE to take class for the benefits of learning which i know is not a bad thing but something that i dont think would really happen back in the US. also, everyone is very focused and loves the field that they are in (which again is a good thing) but just different from all of the classes ive had to take but wasn't interested in. also, i met michelle (who lives in the room next to me) who is from northern virigina and goes to BU which is just crazy circumstances that we would be living so close. ive also made some friends in my classes which is cool because everyone comes into the class with different backgrounds and its nice to learn about everyone's experience.
weather: its been soo nice out this week (especially for london). on average its about 70-75 degrees and pretty sunny, although it was overcast on wednesday. i havent really experienced the london rain, but i did feel a few raindrops one day. today its supposed to be 80-85 degrees and sunny which is perfect temperature! also daylight is so long over here. i think the sun comes up at like 4:30am and sets after 9pm which i really like
okay well i have so much more to tell but i need to get breakfast before lecture. also i posted the few pictures of random things that ive done so far and hopefully ill be able to explain them soon!
