Holy Crackers Batman....

That's just fun to say truthfully. Anyway, things are going great over here. I've been waking up early becuse of the 4:20am sunrise and then having to get up and start going. Anyway Cambrigde was the day before yesterday and I thought that it was amazing. Even though one of the leaders had no idea where he was going. Sometimes roaming around really doesn't get you anywhere unless you really want people to see where they are going....anyway, I won't get into that right now. It was graduation when we went to see Camerbigde (yes my spelling will be offon here ...and it will be a lot off). So it was cool seeing the caps and gowns tha they wore. It was pretty nifty....and note if I was just as smart as those students I would be there in a heart beat.

I'm a little out of it so I'll get off...I'm trying t ocheck my mail but it's not happening at the moment....grr hissssss...Oh just so you know I think you can comment on my blogs...hopefully I'll post what we did yesterday. Later Friends!

YAY! I'm finally here. I've been having a great time hangout seeing the sites and all that jazz. Its been great.
We went to the tower of London on the first day and I should probably meantion that I didn't have any sleep. I may have closed my eyes during the plane ride but it wasn't anything. I couldn't sleep. It was hard to actually stay awake for the day. My professor Kerrigan and my friend Sarah were making sure that I would stay awake during dinner. That was funny. Anyway We also went to the London eye! Now that was cool!
Let's see...oh yesterday, after I got some wonderful sleep! (I swear I slept like a rock!) We headed off to the Globe Theatre. That was really cool. Of course everyone knows I'm a Theatre freak and this is very helpful for my wonderful expericance in Shakespear. Once the tour of The Globe Theatre was over we had some time before the show. My friends, Sarah Jason and I went walking around to find food and we did at a really cool Pub called the Portor's Market. That was some good food. And yes I am eating over here. IF you know me you know that I don't eat a lot, but don't worry I'm eating. So anyway We went back to the Globe to watch the awesome Mid-Summer Night's Dream. That was amazing! I like beening a groundling. Even though I did have to stand for a while. But its worth it. I got blessed by a Fairy.
Well, after that wonderful production Kerrigan, Jason, Sarah and I went off to seek out for another show to see. Note walking from one part of London to the other is not good on knees. So we found a good show called Spamalot! That was great. I enjoyed it. Then it was off to bed for me.
Nothing is like it when you're having the time watching awesome theatre with wonderful actors. I'm actually debating on moving over here...don't kill me please its just a thought. Anyway, I should go now. Things to do and more pictures to take! Have a wonderful day!

Traveling to England and Scotland!

Hey everyone!

I just thought I'd make a blog for you guys. The only problem would be that I wouldn't be able to be posting all the time while I'm away. I would be too much of a computer geek.
I just figured that this would be a little easier to tell people what's going on. There will be time for me to get on here and type something up for you, but I don't want to make promises I can't keep.

I'll be leaving on Tuesday to go to Midlothian to meet up with 17 other people who will be joining me on this trip. The thing is I'll be taking a couple of classes while I'm there. It'll be fun though while I'm there. Anyway, we'll take a coach to Dulles, then we'll leave there around 6:30pm and get to London around 6:55am. It's going to be a long day.

So this should be a good trip for me. But I would have to ask if you have my cell number please don't call (or text) unless its important. I know that I don't get a lot of calls, but you never know. I ask of you please don't call me until I get back. :-)
I'll be posting another site on here for pictures and hopefully I can post some one here so you don't have to go site to site.

Everything is good and I'm excited. I'm ready to go and I hope that everyone has a good week. Have fun at VBS!
