It's my last day of freedom! I actually thought that class started today, but one of my classes was moved from Monday to Tuesday at the last minute. This means that I showed up at my classroom at 10:00 and was told by some other professor that there had been a class switch. I was mad for a little while until I realized that I now have Fridays AND Mondays off. This is a terrific turn of events. Meanwhile, tomorrow won't be the most fun since I now have two classes on Tuesday, but I think it's worth it in the long run. Tonight, I am going to see The Phantom of the Opera for the 2nd time (1st time in Atlanta); I'm very excited! Enjoy Sarah Brightman doing what she does best.
Additionally, I wanted to use this post to discuss the state of the English language in London. I came to London to have an authentic English experience, but I don't think that it's lived up to my expectations. Every morning when I walk out the door, I'll hear at least two and sometimes three different languages before I even hear any English. Don't get me wrong, I'm not immigrant bashing; it's just that I thought that in the capital city of the nation that originated the English language, I might here some English every now and then. I honestly don't think I've ever heard so many languages spoken in one place before. London is a multicultural city; if I want the English experience I've come for, I'm going to have to travel. Luckily for me, I have Fridays and Mondays off. I'm thinking of kicking things off with a trip to Brighton this weekend.
