Living in Texas and doing law-y stuff.

Howdy y'all.
I'm an undergrad law student at the wonderful Birmingham City University, and I've decided to blog about my travels to Lubbock where I'll be interning at a law office.
Some of this will be about the tasks and legal stuff I'm doing, some of it will be me gushing about how much I love America, and the rest (most of it) will be me telling y'all how I've made a fool of myself recently.
All opinions expressed are my own, and I'd take it kindly if no one tries to sue me.
Sidenote: sometimes I think I'd being funny when I'm actually not. If this occurs here, just let it go. Not even I mean most of what I say.

Not gonna lie, this was pretty much the first thing I did when I got back. Missed Marmite on toast so much!

Needless to say, I’m back home

And hating every minute of it. I got on the flight in Newark and was back around British accents and I’m not gonna lie, I couldn’t understand a fucking word anyone was saying. I think I’ve retuned back in now, but even watching British TV’s been weird. I have managed to catch up on the last season of Law & Order UK though, which my Mom had been sky+ing for me, so basically all I’ve done today has been eat, sleep, cry, watch TV, cry, hate life, eat, watch TV, cry. Oh and I did shower.

I need to get busy with unpacking and packing too, because the day after tomorrow I’m flying out to Salzberg for a mini vacation with my Dad. But for now it can all just sit in my suitcase.

The day before the football game. Apparently it’s tradition to make the Will Rogers statue look like a Christmas present.

I never did blog about the game, did I? Well this was probably my favourite part … when it was entertaining and the blokes in leggings and heavy padding weren’t chasing the ball.
I mean, the sport was fun to watch, I guess. And it was exciting whenever our team scored, but, not gonna lie, preferred the whole performance and stuff to the sport. But then again I’m a product of my theatre background and if there’s music and silly costumes I’ll probably think I’m in heaven.
At a score of 50-10 too, I was pretty proud of my adopted team.

2 days left in the USA

I don’t want to go home, that we all know.

I’m also thinking how weird listening to British accents is going to be when I get back. Because they’re not the norm any more, even hearing them on TV sounds weird.

I’m pretending to be Hispanic later, and going with Mary to a social for Hispanic law students from Tech. Being neither Hispanic nor a Tech law student I’m of course sure I’ll fit in.
Regardless, I’m looking forward to it.

2 days. Scary. Home is going to feel so weird, because it feels like I know this place well enough to call it home now too.

The river walk was utterly beautiful. Just the prettiness of it all lit up, and the sounds from the musicians, and watching people floating past on boats, I loved it.

I’m wearing a Sombrero. I wanted it, but figured getting it back on the plane might be a bit of a chore. Ola, Senor.
