September Daybook

Join in the Daybook fun here.

FOR TODAY
Outside my window...
is a windy, cool, and slightly humid day. It's supposed to rain at some point, and we desperately need it here in the Lone Star State, so bring it on!

I am thinking...
about these two tests that I have this afternoon. Doing this is a nice little study break!

I am thankful...
for caffeine. Sometimes Most of the time, a yummy cup of coffee is just necessary.

From the learning rooms...
is busy. I have class at 11, a test at 2, and another test and a paper due at 3:30. Hello, Senior Year.

In the kitchen...
I'm at the library, so no kitchen!

I am wearing...
gray Nike shorts, a blackout game Mizzou tee, a black and pink Phi Mu track jacket, and my Phi Mu flippy floppys. Surprise, surprise.

I am creating...
a paper, I guess? Good enough.

I am going...
to Missouri one week from tomorrow!!!

I am wondering...
how I'll do on my tests later. I always get so nervous.

I am reading...
nothing for pleasure at the moment. I finally finished The Help, and it was SO good! Read it. For real.

I am hoping...
that I do well on my tests. Maybe if I say it enough it will come true.

I am looking forward to...
seeing Boyfriend in just over a week!!!

I am hearing...
other students in the library doing the same thing I am (messing around on the Internet when there's actually work to be done...).

Around the house...
is normal. I have seriously got to get my room under control, though.

I am pondering...
just random things. Nothing really in particular.

One of my favorite things...
are great conversations with Boyfriend. I just like him a whooooooole bunch!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Survive today (and do well, hopefully), get a good night's sleep tonight, work tomorrow, get ahead for work/study for a test/write a paper/do laundry/get everything together to go out of town/etc.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
  Can't wait to see this face! :)

Scaryexciting

I'm officially a senior in college, and in three months from today, I'll be walking across that stage in my cap and gown and receiving my (empty) diploma (cover).

As far as school goes, I'm more than ready to be done. Let's just say that I've been suffering from a case of good ol' Senioritis for a while now.

The truth is: Yes, I'm ready to be done with school, and I'm ready to be out in the real world- I think. But after graduation weekend, I have no specific plans for literally the first time in my life.

Job, living situation, travel, relationship, a possible move, income, social life, etc., etc.- It's all a big fat question mark! And that, Folks, is pretty freaking terrifying. But it's also pretty awesome and exciting.

At what other point in my life will I be able to fully choose a direction and throw myself towards it, praying it works out, but knowing I'll be okay if it doesn't? Never.

At what other point will I be able to have that cliche young, clueless, fresh-faced-and-wanting-to-see-the-world adventure? Never.

I have no plans and not a clue as to what I'm going to do after graduation, but I do have big hopes. And that is super scaryexciting.

Found myself in a city near Piccadilly

London, Day 3

Each and every day we spent in London was jam packed with activities. We did not want to waste a second, and, as a result, we were BUSY!

We spent our third day in London taking in the sights on The London Eye, riding around on our tour bus, and at the Tower of London.

I loved The London Eye! I was a little skeptical about it at first just because it seems like such an obvious "tourist trap," but, after riding it, I really believe that it's worth the time and money. Each vessel on this nontraditional ferris wheel holds between 20 and 25 people, and it's literally impossible to stand in a spot where you don't have a great view. With floor-to-ceiling windows, it's easy to see for miles and enjoy the greatest view in all of London. I'd highly recommend it.

After getting off The Eye and walking around the Westminster area again- I had to say hi to Benny Boy and the abbey, of course- we jumped back on the bus and made our way to the Tower of London. While doing research for this trip, I quickly learned that the Tower is the most popular tourist attraction in London, and, therefore, a unanimous must-see. I had high hopes, but I have to admit that I was disappointed. I enjoyed parts, especially learning about the lineage of the royal family, but much of the Tower was dull and not what I expected at all.

That being said, I'm glad that we took the time to see it since it is such a historically-rich and popular attraction. While we were at the Tower, we waited in line for an hour to see The Crown Jewels, and I'm so happy we did. They were beyond amazing, and my favorite part of the day by far! I wish photos were allowed inside the vault because everything was to-die-for, and I couldn't believe that I was seeing crowns and jewels that have been used by the royal family for hundreds of years and still continue to be used today. If you're ever in London, The Crown Jewels are a must-see.

Stay tuned for Day 4, and check out my bucket list, Day 1, and Day 2.
