This one is almost a week late because I'm a lazy sod and have been somewhat busy with schoolwork and other things (side note: Halloween is in two days!).
Things to catch up on before launching into yet another trip: Selina, Chris, Ellen and I went to a cultural food and art type festival, Tucson meet yourself, and ate our way through several country's cuisines, breaking to check out the different stalls and various other attractions and shows. I came very close to adopting a big Chihuahua that sounded like a dolphin when it tried to bark- who could get annoyed at that? So funny.
Kicking butt at school as per- that's no longer exciting to tell/ brag to you about haha.
Right, onto the cool stuff
After showering at the hostel we gussied up and headed out for dinner and a night on the town..
The next day we headed to Casa Loma only to find it cost $20 to get in, so after some posing outside we tried to convoy (again we split up with no avail) and I was dropped off near the Thomas Eaton Memorial Church to see an old friend, my choir conductor from Key Cygnetures, who now directs the Toronto Children's Chorus. It was a bit of a miracle that we had contact enough to actually meet up! After a lovely and very excited reunion and catch up (where I was laughed at for my vowels having shifted already) with Elise Bradley and Karen Grylls I sat in on the rehearsal (I was even introduced to the kids) and enjoyed while waiting to be picked up by the others.
Aimee and Panda popped their heads in the door and I said my goodbyes. Outside the church I was told that we had no idea where the others were (we didn't see them again til Oswego), so Aimee and I went shopping for a little while near the hostel while we waited to hear from the others.
Upon arriving at the airport, American Airlines called to tell me my flight was cancelled- long story with not many details but basically I couldn't get a flight back til the next day, was up from 1:45am my time to travel back still and missed all my classes! Oh well haha.
It was such a great trip and we had heaps of fun- I can't not with that girl and her friends were a hoot! Man I sound like an old lady when I talk sometimes...
Anyway not much happened following the trip other than family Skype dates and our unranked football team beating the national #9 ranked in the biggest upset so far this season! It was such an intense and lively game! USC has players that have already been drafted for the NFL and we beat them! Whoop! (As you can see I'm actually becoming an American College Student.)
Anyway time to get ready for bed as I doubt I'll be getting any sleep the rest of this week; Halloween is on Wednesday and on Friday I'm going on a road trip to LA for the weekend with Stewart, Ellen, Niall, Ricky and Daniel to see an NBA game!
Peace out xx
