London: Day 2 – Some eats & catching up on sleep.

london - day 2

Well, I got up at three something in the morning. Ah, fun. I did some reading and work until around 7 a.m. I didn’t have any groceries yet, so I just went to the Starbucks, and got a coffee and porridge, which reminded me of a creamier oatmeal.

I read the first chapter in The Happiness Project, which Jen just started following. I definitely resonated with it, right down to her vows to stop twisting her hair, wearing running shoes all the time, and eating the same foods day in and day out. And, namely, her first goal for the year was to sleep more!

We had an orientation session in the morning, then the students went on the Big Bus Tour for the rest of the day, while I had a few more meetings.

Around 2 p.m., I crashed and decided to take a nap. It lasted five hours.

I woke up around dinner time and went to the Sainsbury grocery store across the street for some groceries. It’s HUGE!

A few of us cooked dinner together. Pasta, green beans, chicken caesar salads, and bread.

Then, we were going to bake a cake for a student’s birthday, but we don’t have any cake pans. Alas, a beautiful store-bought chocolate birthday cake!

Two days in a row that ended with chocolate cake. Not bad.

    I just started reading The Happiness Project last night after getting it in the mail yesterday. Two Milwaukee bloggers recently started a book club, and that’s their first choice. Good luck with getting more sleep!

  2. Sounds like you had an interesting day. Oddly, I went to Starbucks yesterday in Manchester for the first time and made my first trip to an actual theatre to A Midsummer’s Night Dream. Wonderful post!

    I’m looking forward to ‘seeing’ London with you. I also read The Happiness Project a few months ago and really connected with a lot of her points. The project is inspiring and exhausting all at the same time. :) We hope to travel in London and up through northern England and southern Scotland next year so I will glean from your experiences. May I ask what is your favorite camera lens for walking around town, (like the one pictured in the elevator for example)? Do you like a fixed, prime lens or a telephoto? I use a 28-135mm but would really prefer a 50mm I think for portraits. I’m still figuring it all out so always looking for pointers. Thanks.

    Omg there are Starbucks EVERYWHERE in London! And I work by the Old Vic :) Have you been to the Young Vic down the street? I always go there for an iced coffee and savory muffin during the day!
