Yesterday, once I was finally up and showered, I headed into town. I practiced the walk to St Katharine's Lodge, where my classes are, and figured out that's it's about 25 minutes. Then I explored a used book store in town, dropped into Boots for a look around, and headed on to H&M.
Did I mention that there's an H&M in the middle of Market Street? I ended up buying a hat that was on sale for 5 pounds that I'm quite in love with. From there, I headed on to a stationary store where I bought notebooks for my classes. I was appalled at how crowded Pret was at 2pm; I had to wait a few minutes to get a table!

Last night, my hall had pre-drinks downstairs, which was in all honesty a crazy affair. Ali and I went together and only talked to each other because we were fairly intimidated. Then we headed out to the reception for JSAs (Junior Study Abroad students) which was at one of the bars in the Student Union. It was packed and I discovered that a lot of the people that I'd met thus far had met each other. Is a friend group forming?? I hope so.
In other news, yesterday I watched all of the BBC miniseries Sense and Sensibility...with Dan Stevens as Edward Ferras. I think it might be the first of many watches...
