And blogfriends. How are you all? I hope you've been enjoying your summer (or winter, if you live down in the Southern hemisphere).
I'm sorry I haven't blogged in over a month. What can I say, the time just flew by! It seems like just yesterday I was in London, navigating the Tube system.
Oh yeah, I was in Europe. I felt bad for not blogging at least once during my trip to talk about it, but I'm sure none of you really want to hear about it. Every time I mention Europe to my friends, they give me dirty looks until I quiet down.
Nevertheless, I'm still going to talk about it. What can I say about Europe, honestly? It's like the Harry Potter series: no words can sum it up. I'm convinced it's a magical place that leaves you wiser than you'd been before you arrived. This trip was full of so many unique experiences. It was so different from my trip to Europe 2 years ago. That trip was so planned, so organized. I was with a tour group, after all. This time, it was just me and my mom. I loved navigating the public transport systems, and talking to all the different people. On this trip, I really got to work on my people skills. I overcame my shyness at talking to strangers.
It hasn't been long enough for me to understand just how much it's changed me, but on a particularly emotional evening sometime in mid-autumn you'll probably find a post from me about it.
Here are a few pictures:
I took a lot of pictures on my film camera, but showing some of them on here would require scanning, and I'm too lazy to do that right now.
So, enough about Europe for now. What's up with me? Well, I've been procrastinating on my college forms. It's awful and I'll definitely regret it, but I can't force myself to do those dreaded health forms. Ugh, I don't have any disease! Why is that not enough?
I've also been watching far too many movies. I saw "Moonrise Kingdom" today for the second time. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone. I've never seen a movie more than once in theatres, but this movie was worth every penny (*ahem* it was also $5 Movie Monday at the local indie theatre). I expected it to be cheesy, but it wasn't at all. The soundtrack is one of the best I've ever heard also.
I've been drawing a lot too. I might upload some of my drawings and sketches if I'm feeling brave. Who knows?
Three weeks till college. Hopefully I'll post more frequently until then.
