I’ve been here for one month now! That means there are only 9 months left. Crazy! Time has gone so fast. A few things have happened, although schoolwork has kept me busy. Apparently you get less than half an hour to write a complete Essay, which is insane. I’ve come to the conclusion that you can’t write a good essay in that amount of time. When it comes to writing, I need to know everything is perfect and I like to take my time. I also have a lot to say on certain topics.
On Saturday I was just gonna take a small trip into the city centre to get a book for next Friday, but I met up with a group of girls who were also going. I ended up joining them and my quick trip wasn’t that quick anymore, haha.
We walked around and shopped, but I was good and did not buy too much. I didn’t buy any clothes or shoes, although I did need them. We all found something to eat at the foodfestival, and I had noodles. It was really good, but really spicy.
Then we were all thirsty so we went to find a place we could buy Milkshake. There was a shop a little further up the street and they had so many flavours!
The most exciting thing was that they sold Bertie Botts every flavoured beans and chocolate frogs! I didn’t get them, but I probably will next time. I ordered an Orea milkshake, and although it was nice it was really sickening.
Since I went to the city to get a book, I visited a bookshop across the street. They didn’t have the books I was looking for, but the books were really cheap and I went a little crazy. I bought 2 books and only paid 3 pounds! I could have bought more books and I would, but I didn’t wanna carry them around and I still needed to get the book I wanted. We walked around for a little while longer and bought some things.
Since we were all pretty tired of walking around, a large bookshop was the last shop we went to. I didn’t find the book I wanted to get, but I found two Shades of London books by Maureen Johnson, so I just got both of them. Yolo, right? I’m so sorry for using that. So next friday I’m going to a Maureen Johnson book signing and I think I might die of excitement.
Don’t ask me how many “Guide’s to Tolkien” I own because I don’t wanna talk about it. Come on, they had four in the store and I think I did a good job only grabbing one. The other book is Skarlet by Thomas Emson. I have never heard of it before or even seen it, but the front page was interesting. Shady characters with hoods is a thing now and they make great book covers. There is just something about them that screams “read me”. The last time I thought that the book wasn’t as good as I thought and I didn’t finish it.
Anyways, on Sunday I went to a horse show. I watched the jumping classes and it was a lot of fun! Despite my lack of experience, I miss it and would love to get back to competing a bit. Back to jumping, rather. I’m far too used to my own pony and the horse I used to ride, so It’s good with variation. I miss them both tons, as I’m that kind of person that gets really close to a horse and then kinda forget to ride other horses. Not that it’s bad to stick to the same ones, but it’s strange to try new horses. It’s fun though!
