Globalization is so much better than some Mediterranean flies

Minds shall be shaken, pencils shall be splintered! A test day… an exam day…  ere the sun rises! 

Today was the exam day. Together with M.  we had planned to select the science section but when we saw Mediterranean flies we had to return to social science. Which sucks. I’m pretty sure I failed but with the official results due in May, I can cling to some vestiges of hope. 

But other than that, today was great: nice weather, good coffee, great company. And London pretending to be Tokyo (crowds!) but failing miserably (they had to close Oxford Circus Station because it was overcrowded XD). 

Oxford Street packed with people waiting for the station to reopen

We had to walk to a different station (and then some more, because: reasons) which meant navigating through London with lots of books and lots of post-exam no-more-adrenaline talking. Couldn’t be happier that I didn’t have to know the way, because with my sense of direction and emergency calls only, finding the right station would take forever. 

And you know what? I hate saying goodbyes. I think it’s time for humans to develop some new form of transportation. Beam me up, Scotty or allonsy. 

Remember today. Today, life was good. 

We didn’t start the fire

So today was full of unexpected turns of events: starting with the fire drill in the British Library just a few minutes after we entered the building… 

People waiting in the rain for the library to be re-opened

…  being (politely) asked to vacate the booth after we finished drinking hot chocolate (me) and coffee (M.), getting sort-of lost in Piccadilly Circus (talking and thinking at the same time seemed too difficult for us, thank gods we can’t chat during the exam), finding our exam place just to learn that was not our exam place, finding the right exam place after some sightseeing (BBC building and a round tower that probably has a name but I don’t remember it)… 

…  learning some and chatting more, having the most useless computer training session ever, going on a quest (I wanted to buy orange juice in M&S), and ending with a walk to Oxford Circus (and laughing a lot). 
Now I’m on the tube, heading to my cousin’s place. And it’s not raining anymore! 😉
