Hope Springs

So it's the end of another great week. Unfortunately, this was also the week that I had my first (I know, I can't believe it either, but it's only the first) actual assignment at the university, I'm not counting the presentation on how you do research that I had to do for my Business and Tourism class.

But back to fun stuff, we had another William & Mary meet up on Tuesday. Sarah, Liv, Sophie and I went out to Hubbox for some, almost, American style burgers and afterwards we made chocolate chip pancakes in honor of Fat Tuesday. Our attempts at pancake selfie shots were a bit lackluster, so you'll just have to picture it for yourself.

I also made some plans for later on. I bought a ticket for the A Capella Society Awards Ball, which is excitingly black tie. I mean, everyone knows that I'll take about just any excuse to dress up, and I have to put the formal dress and heels I packed just in case to good use somehow. I also purchased myself a ticket for Paloma Faith's upcoming tour. Her new CD, A Perfect Contradiction doesn't actually come out until tomorrow, but I loved the first single (Can't Rely On You) and her last two CDs. It's in London in late May, so it's still a while from now, but I definitely can't wait.

Yesterday, I procrastinated a bit with my essay in order to go on a walk down to the Quay with Sophie. It was absolutely gorgeous out, and it seemed a shame to miss out on it to write an Accounting essay. I did discover that Sophie is a great proponent of the dorky photo, so I have some new slightly embarrassing additions to my Facebook page for which I have her to thank.

That's it for the moment, but I'll write again soon.

P.S. I am a firm believer in the idea that it's spring as soon as you have flowers that bloom, and don't die from the cold (this exception is necessary because sometimes you'll see crocuses bloom in the snow), so it's officially springtime in Exeter!
