Day 1 of Allison and Courtney’s European Adventure!

Took a walking tour of the East London markets in the morning (super cool!) and then we hopped on the London Eye for an amazing view of the cityscape. And although it was pretty cloudy, there wasn’t any fog or rain so we could even see Primrose hill from the top 🇬🇧

Starbucks & Studying

Starbucks is officially my new study spot for the rest of the semester! I’ve found that I have a really hard time concentrating on homework and reading while in the house, so I decided to switch up my routine a little by heading over to Starbucks before Art History class this morning. Miraculously, I’m already two and a half pages into my Theatre  paper about “The Duchess of Malfi” and I’ve only been here for a little over an hour. Excellent decision and, despite all of the screaming little kids who are running around at the moment, I will definitely be a regular in the morning from now on. If I can figure out how to drag myself out of bed before class that is…
