One of my friends, Betty, who is maybe the funniest person I've ever met (tonight at dinner she told one of the missionaries that he wasn't the most handsome elder) read my palm tonight. She's Chinese and has the best accent/intonations ever. Anyways. She gave some insight into my future that should be documented.
-I will live to be over 100
-I will have two boys and one girl
-I will get married soon-like, in the next year. Big news.
-My husband and I will fight a lot, but he'll be rich and powerful, so I'm ok with that
-My big work promotion won't happen until I'm in my 50's
So I'll keep you updated on whether or not any of those things happen.
Also, a side note, 129 days until Backstreet Boys.
And, to celebrate the last day of classes today, I've had my own Law and Order Marathon and am on my sixth episode. I'll be honest-it isn't the same without Christopher Meloni. But its still good.
Last night I went with some friends to this Christmas Carol Service in the ol' York Minster.
We all know how much I love it there.
The program was very sweet. It was put on by the other main university here-York St. John-and it contained carols from all over the world. Their chamber choir sang, they had some scripture readings, there was a short Christmas sermon by their chaplain who is from Kenya and gave a really sweet little talk...
On Saturday my friend Ruth came into York and we got to hang out.
Yeah, it was awesome.
After a lovely little lunch and some window shopping, we stopped by a...museum? of sorts. The bottom floor of this pub is actually some Roman baths-built 1700 years ago! They were just digging and bam!
The Romans had beaten them there.
And that's actually all I read from the pamphlet the (super good looking) guy gave us, because I was easily distracted...
I seriously love a good dress up.
Also, not joking, this is the 'gift shop'.
AKA the most ghetto 'gift shop' I have ever seen or could even imagine.
I think its really interesting some of the differences in vocabulary between British English and American English. I seriously laugh at some of the word choices for both variations.
Like driving sounds so much more serious here. Instead of signaling, they indicate. And instead of passing people, they overtake them. Powerful. I like it.
I also enjoy them asking "You alright?" ALL THE TIME. It's their "how are you" of sorts. It took awhile to adjust my response to fit the question, but I finally think I have it down. I don't think I'll ever conform to being able to ask the question, but I can respond appropriately. I also feel lame saying cheers to people, so I'm staying away from that one, too.
Anyways, this is just to lead into me saying I'm unwell. Instead of sick. Because I hear unwell wayyyy more than I hear sick. I have this cold that is ruining everything aka my life.
This is what I look like right now:
So hot right now.
Lets hope this cold is ready to dance tomorrow night.
Also, the results of the hair survey are veryyyy interesting. I'll post the results tomorrow. Go vote if you haven't already!
