One day Victoria and I were chatting in my room. I showed her my cute black hat and told her it was one of those things I liked but could never quite bring myself to wear it. She said she believed that if we like it we should just wear it.
So I did.
And later she told me I looked pretty in it...I love her.
Elizabeth is a funny story. She's actually Bailey's neighbor. I used to work at a coffee shop in her town. And I'd never met her until now. Fancy that! Neighbors meet in England!
And you have to notice that they're driving on the wrong side of the road on the motorway. (It's a motorway not a freeway.) It's way harder to get used to that than you'd think. I sat in the front seat of a little car on the way to Carnforth one day and seeing the cars coming from the wrong side of the road gives your brain a weirdness and you think you're going to get hit. Doesn't help that the roads are teeny either.
Electric fences and wooden post fences are something of a novelty here. Haven't seen one. Ever. It's all stone walls and hedges. And there's seriously sheep everywhere. Some of the students here can't believe that we don't have sheep all over at home. They wonder what we do have...cows...I guess.
At home it's always..."oh hey look! a sheep!" But over here it's..."oh my gosh it's a cow!"
