9 May 2014: Sunday Roast, Exhibition

This past weekend was the last with the flat intact so we made an effort to cook a Sunday roast and feast together. Sunday roasts are one of my favourite things about England, though it was my first meal coming into town so maybe I’m just a little sentimental. I prepped the chicken with herbs…

4 May 2014: Afternoon Tea

It’s about time I can cross Afternoon Tea off my must-do London list. As a last date with my flat mates, we dressed up and put our pinkies out at Soho’s Secret Tea Room. We entered through the bar and up a back narrow, spiral staircase to find a kitschy little room with mix-matched china…

2 May 2014: How is it May?

I was so confused about my Uni schedule before arriving here. How could I have three weeks off for break followed by a month of finals? I still don’t have the answers, but I do know that I’m now done with classes and have turned in all my projects and papers. I have a pending…

5 Apr 2014: Curry, Canterbury

  Each month I comment on the rate at which the previous month passed and each month seems to go exponentially faster so here I am saying it again. So I’m three very full months into my adventure and I’m already beginning my lasts. Classes are done, yet that doesn’t mean that I’ve conquered finals…

29 Mar 2014: Portobello Road

Being a Gerber by blood has implanted this cruel and ridiculous love for Wheel of Fortune. I think the greatest joy my Great Grandfather got out of his day at 98-years old, was the 6:30pm airing of Wheel of Fortune (followed by bedtime, of course). Here I am, three months into living in the UK and…

23 Mar 2014: Greenwich, Cafés

It’s Spring for real this time! The daffodils are past their prime, but the tulips are just coming up. It’s such a wonderful time to be in London. Or maybe it’s just a wonderful time to not be in Austin with allergy season and round up. I’d usually be on steroids with a rescue inhaler…

7 Mar 2014: Art, Spring

I thought I’d leave something little before I’m out and about exploring this weekend. My sore throat is nearly gone and I’ve been taking it easy. Tuesday involved a bit of class, but I left after lunch, rented a graphic novel from the library and took it to Gail’s, a local bakery and café we…
