|My favorite spot in the park|
This last week I started classes! The program I am studying abroad with is called Foundation for International Education (FIE) and there are about 12 other schools from the US here. All of my classes are with these other kids from the US, which kind of stinks because I am not really interacting with kids from the UK. However, all of my professors are from the UK. As I might have mentioned, all my classes are 3 hours long (yes, it is horrible) and some are twice a week. A lot of the classes have scheduled field trips, and in fact, tomorrow we are going to the BBC studios. All of my classes are pretty interesting, but I will be doing a lot of reading (which if you know me at all... I HATE READING). The classes I am taking are: European Cinema, Media in Britain, Visual Media, Islam in the West, and an Internship course (will start at the end of October). All very cool classes that will all count for credit back at LMU!

you get on the tube.
Friday I had class in the morning and finished at noon (4am for most of you back home haha). Later that night Aya and I went out to dinner because we haven't really eaten a whole meal since we had been here. We went to a place called Nandos... probably just as famous here, as In-n-Out is at home. After dinner a few of us went to the pub to watch the England National World Cup Qualifier game because we don't get the channel in our flats! England won 4-0!

Well thats it for the week! I am really starting to miss everyone and I love when I get texts/emails from people back home. Even if I am not able to respond right away to the emails, I do appreciate them! I have put some pictures in the blogs, but here is the link to my Facebook so you can see the entire album, its titled "London 2013":
Hope everyone is enjoying the heat at home!
P.S. Proof of the bi-polar weather...
