I’m starting to completely lose track of what I’ve done.. crap I need to get one finishing my daily description of London thus far
July 8th (Tuesday): Regular day. Class from 10-11 am. Went back to the residence hall with Erin to help her get some stuff done, then we went and got lunch at this cute little café right on the corner.
Not going to lie, I was completely astounded by HOW MUCH AVACADO THEY PUT IN MY SANDWICH!! It was chicken and avocado, and usually people are very frugal with the amount of avocado since it’s expensive, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised.
July 9th (Wednesday): Yet another day. Same schedule. The only differentiation of this day is that in the evening a bunch of us got together and went to O’Neill’s Pub by the Angel Tube station and watched the Netherlands vs. Argentina match. Argentina won on penalty kicks, it was painful to watch and Albert (the one from the Netherlands) was very much upset, though it was amusing to watch him acting all angsty.
July 10th (Thursday): Another day I don’t remember too much about. I don’t think anything special happened, other than hanging out in the lounge area like we usually do, playing pool and ping pong and studying. Though I do remember walking past the resupplying of the bar on campus in the student center…
This is how we school #LSE
July 11th (Friday): IT’S FRIDAY! Thank goodness. School is the usual, though in lecture my mind starts to completely shut down for the weekend about 30 to 45 minutes before lecture is actually over, so it results in a lot of groaning and unrest and giggling.
That night, we all got free tickets to The Ministry of Sound, apparently a big dance club here in London.
Justin’s picture, showing us he has all the tickets.
So we get ready, pregame, and go out. The pregame was actually pretty intense. We had a toooon of people down in the lounge. I’m sipping my classic Vodka-crans.
Me, Till, and Taylor
I’m being an absolute fool, as per usual.
FYI, this night was the first time I ever wore a crop top. I had bought it immediately before the pre-game, because Taylor, another Taylor, and I went shopping at H&M, where I bought my entire outfit that I’m wearing in the picture. I had also bought a cute pair of grey sneakers, and some other clothes.
So We go to the Ministry, and it was fun because of the people, but it was an absolute cluster fuck, and there were tooons of LSE students there. I did get talking to a cute boy from Yale, but I never talked to him again (haha, whoops).

July 12th (Saturday): Today, it was a group of us girls going around visiting the town! Me, Taylor, Taylor, Susannah, Athina, Kelly, Jen. We went to a very nice brunch as Kopapa! Delicious

Later, we went on a bus tour around London, and saw a bunch of different neighborhoods and the classic touristy sights, like the Tower bridge and Big Ben and the parks and whatnot. All very pretty.
Interesting horse statue we came across on the trip.
After the tour, we went back to Big Ben and did all the tourist photo-opp stuff, it was too cute, and as girls, none of us minded doing this for quite a long time.
Athina, Kelly, me, Taylor, and Jen. Susannah is the one taking the picture, and the other Taylor had ditched us after brunch.
After all this, we walked towards Trafalgar Square, and got dinner at this Mediterranean place that was delicious on the Strand. Also very, very good. Afterwards, we all go back to our residence halls.
I have a fairly casual night out, Susannah, Cam, Aryeh, Jacob, and I went to try out this little jazz and blues bar, which I actually enjoyed quite a bit, it had live music that was super interesting and the atmosphere was cool, and afterwards we went to another pub, The Angel, and hung out there for a while before heading back and going to bed.
