A Week in My Life

Last week was a good week! Here’s what I did:

Monday: Went to Saint Paul’s Cathedral for British Art and Architecture class. Climbed all the way to the top which offered a beautiful view of the city. Then for Easter break, some of my housemates and I decided to go to Italy for spring break!

Tuesday: Worked the early shift at my internship.

Wednesday: Worked another early shift at my internship. Decided I’m going to go to Glasgow for a Macklemore and Ryan Lewis concert. He doesn’t tour in London until after I leave London, and Glasgow only cost me 26 pounds ($39) roundtrip to fly there!

Thursday: Went to a play at the Shakespeare’s Globe for my Shakespeare in London class. We saw The Winter’s Tale, which was really good. We were in the Sam Wanamaker Theatre, which was constructed to be just a theater back in Shakespeare’s day would have been. Standing room and it was lit only by candlelight. That night most of the house decided to the Camden Pub Crawl and I made a lot of friends that night!

Friday: Movie night in with the housemates.

Saturday: Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour and Oxford tour. Absolutely amazing! The Studio had props from the movies and basically showed how it was filmed. I was in heaven as I am a huge Harry Potter fan. The tour group also took us to Oxford where we were able to see filming locations. We also ate a restaurant where Tolkien was known to have been a regular! That night, came back to have a game night in with the housemates.

Sunday: I went on the train to Hampton Court Palace, which is 500 years old. All of the royalty used to live there back in the day, including King Henry VIII. Needless to say, as a history nerd, I was in heaven.
