Thoughts From Abroad | Part 23

21 March 2014

1) SPRING IS HEREEEEE!
Can you believe it has only rained ONCE in the last two weeks! 

2) I kind of blew off St. Patrick's Day this year. Since moving abroad my excitement for holidays has only increased, but for some reason I was just not into St. Patrick's Day. At least I didn't get pinched for not wearing green, that must be an American thing.

3) The setting for the next season of American Horror Story is going to be a 1950s circus! Omg, I seriously can't wait! 

4) I think it might be time to upgrade my UK phone. There's only so much a girl can take of a non-smart phone.

5) The amount of google accounts I have accumulated over the years is ridiculous. I think I have 4 or 5 and nothings more annoying than when your computer doesn't recognize the one you want it to automatically login to. 

6) I'm notorious for having knee problems. I don't know what I did to set it off, but my left knee has been kind of useless the past few days. 

7) Currently reading: 4 books on the Black Death, 3 on medieval afterlife, and 2 on Henry VII. Life of a history masters student...

8) I've come to the realization that I can no longer drink Starbucks. I'm too spoiled with Bristol's amazing coffee scene that Starbucks just isn't all that great anymore. 

9) When is Eurovision?? My friends keep on explaining it to me and I feel I HAVE to watch it this year.

10) I've finally caught up with The Walking Dead! Y'all... That last episode was cray. Like "made me an emotional wreck" cray.


Happy Friday!
xoxo

  2. The Eurovision is an institution, and a great excuse for a fancy dress party and loads of drinking games. I believe it's 10th May this year.

  5. I love watching Eurovision too! It is such a good excuse for a silly drunk night in, we treat it kinda like a slumber party and have the best time!

  6. Totally feel your pain about the Google accounts! I have three or four I think, an it's never the one I actually use all the time that shows up... :) Oh, you definitely should watch Eurovision! It's gotten a bit lengthy for me (I still remember it used to be only one show, without semi-finals haha) but you should definitely experience it once. Good luck with all that reading!

  8. Americans really go OTT on St Patrick's Day compared to how I remember it being in the UK, it's really strange. And yeah i'll admit to never really getting into the Starbucks thing especially when we have so many better and independent/local coffee stores here in Michigan instead. Give me a Biggby's Coffee any day!

  9. Eurovision is def not to be missed! It's ridiculous. Although they've actually gotten less jokey acts and more really good ones in the last couple years my bf has said, so it's not as entertaining apparently. There's still enough crazy ones I think though. I think it's the beginning of may.
