Oh the joys of walking to a tutorial after 3pm in November, it's nearly dark and then completely dark on the way back, so safe. Wasn't helpful either, I should have brought in what I printed off, she didn't print it off, now I'm bringing it to her tomorrow and she's going to post it back... I sense something a bit risky about this, perhaps more risky than the fact I walked home in the dark. It was darker in real life than it was in the photo, not to mention freezing - this is on the way there, Eldon was so boiling though that I was only just starting to be cold again by the time I got home.
Today flew by, and I'm not even really sure I did anything. I did go and meet Gabriella for lunch though and that was nice, and I sorted through my Paris photos. I've got to get my head together. There isn't that long until we break up for Christmas.
Back in England. It's good to be home, but I've had a great time and it's been a good, if not short and small, life experience. I now know that if I can say, "no" to the street urchins of Paris, I can say no to anyone.
Disneyland! And it brought back so many Florida memories, it was so nice, it would have been better if it weren't so busy but it was so pretty and the general atmosphere was so much less stressful than Paris.
Today it wasn't misty so we went up the Eiffel Tower and here is the view from the second floor, firstly the top was pretty high, and secondly the queue was massive so we didn't go. It was Paris Photo today, it was a pretty interesting experience but it was to hot inside compared to how cold it was outside, making for a pretty uncomfortable experience. I liked the Japanese work the best.
So we're in Paris. This was taken at around 4pm, so it took nearly 10 hours to get organised from Portsmouth to Paris, but it was actually quite an easy journey. I saw the Eiffel Tower for the first time today, despite being to Paris at least twice.
As Richard's still down, we went out last night. I had already fallen on Friday night and severely messed up my hand, it still hurts now actually. But I made Moon promise me that he wouldn't let me fall; before I'm even drunk or near Babylon, I trip over the curb and because of my sore hand I have to essentially fall flat on my face, this is the result. Ow!
So my sister visited today with my Uncle David, Auntie Mandy and cousin Louise. We had a nice afternoon, they took me out for lunch at Giraffe, where I had a sushi rice salad, I'll be honest with you, it wasn't great. I took this mug though, my aunt had a coffee and look how nice it is, as I'm ever getting my own coffee at Giraffe, now I can have tea in it all time. I think I need to stop nicking beverage containers, this is my second one so far this school year! Apologies for the 'camera-phone like' quality, I don't know what's going on there.
I've finally finished the first chapter of my dissertation - thought I'd show off how thick the peanut butter cheescake was, it will probably all be finished by tomorrow because everyone loves it I've got to let my sister try some when she comes down. I'm going out tonight for what feels like the first time in ages, at least I've earned it - based on today anyway
Yet another massive case of avoiding work, I saw someone had finished their dissertation and it made my stomach sink. BUT I did make this today, so I can always become some kind of cheesecake wonder if this degree thing doesn't work out. YES, this is a peanut butter cheesecake, with a brownie base. ♥
I've rearranged my room, I felt like I was being productive, but I really wasn't. I have cleaned the whole house in order to be prepared for my Uncle David's visit on Saturday but, I did minimal work, unless literally skimming a book counts...
I've studied a bit today and been a bit lazy, I'm ready to tackle my dissertation some more tomorrow. I feel bad that there are some many people on my course that are already 6,000 words in but I guess at least it all depends on the way individuals work. I think I might really have to knuckle down now.
These people made me depressed as hell, after a long morning and most of afternoon at Uni, I had to follow them on the way home. They couldn't look after there oldest son because they've already had two other children, and this is somehow his fault. Does he even stand a chance?
Eeep! I love this week, there are fireworks everywhere. Tonight, we headed over to Cosham to watch the fireworks, they weren't great but only because there weren't enough massive ones. I liked the fire, even though it just looked like someone had just set a pile alight rather than an organised bonfire. We couldn't get any sparklers going though....
