The night we got back from Italy was Halloween and the Irish boys were hosting a party. I had to throw together a costume at the last minute so I decided to be a European soccer "futball" player. I wore my basketball shorts, Karen’s sneakers that happen to look like cleats, and borrowed Shane’s Manchester United jersey. It ended up being a great costume for not spending any money! The party was awesome and I was lucky enough to meet some French guys who play basketball! They invited us to their open-gym type practice. On Thursday night Karen, Emily, and I went to the gym and found, of course, all boys playing. At first I was a bit rusty (we had to do lay-up lines) but once we started scrimmaging I was doing really well. My team was actually pretty good, it was just really weird hearing French being shouted while playing basketball. I realized I was a little out of shape as I attempted to run up and down the court! But we plan to go every week now and I just bought some tennis shoes to wear so I’m really excited!

Today is Wednesday the 12th. I actually had class Monday-Thursday last week and had to do a bunch of homework. I only have one class on Thursday this week. HAHA! This school system is so odd. Tuesday was apparently another holiday so they just shut everything down Monday as well. I plan on spending this week writing a 7 page finance paper and getting homework done in advance so that I don’t have to worry about it when we are traveling. Alex and I have just booked a trip to Barcelona, Spain and we are looking into a trip to London. I recently found out that a friend from home is studying abroad in Lancaster, England and would be able to meet up with us in London! I hope it works out!
So, I have some exciting news. I actually cooked chicken BY MYSELF for the first time ever and I didn’t die of food poisoning! It was actually good! I had chicken, pasta, corn, and bread! I took a picture of my amazing chef meal but I accidentally deleted it! I know, it’s suspicious that I deleted the only proof of me cooking, but I swear I really did!

I realized today as I woke up at 3:30pm that I may have a sleep addiction. I think I need to work on that before I get back to the States and actually have class everyday! Well friends, it’s time to do the dishes and homework. How exciting! BYE!
