Today kinda sucked. 50 people in one flat… not enough space. Eh. My camera drowned and died last weekend when an entire water bottle emptied out in my purse. Today I spent a few hours looking for a new camera but the $ exchange is bad as always.
Good event for the day – a group of us saw the show Hairspray tonight. It was pretty good but not fantastic.
Today… ran some errands, not feeling good, studied for a test.
Today I got to see Melinda and her family! It was a great day. Melinda (my half-sister), Devin, Clara and Jonas moved to Harrogate, England this year and it was their first time visiting London. I met them at the Science Museum and introduced Ali to them. I was trying to be a sort of tour guide and had places i wanted to show them, but every tube line I needed was (of course) down today, so we took buses all the way across London. We split from Ali and headed towards Big Ben, which is my favorite area of London. I had lots of fun pointing out famous spots – Westminster cathedral, Parliament, Big Ben! We took pictures and then crossed the River Thames and saw the London Eye. I loved being with Clara and Jonas! They are adorable and so much fun.
Church, not feeling well again, had a good talk with the bishop’s wife in my Whitechapel ward (she’s amazing and hilarious with a big black sassy woman accent). Spent the rest of the day doing nothing then studying for and taking a religion midterm. With the exception of seeing Melinda & company yesterday, this has not been a great past few days. I can’t wait to start a new week tomorrow… in Paris! Tomorrow is our “spring break” and the whole program is spending 4 days in Paris! Yay :)
