Last week the university had independent reading week which means I didn’t have class. Taking advantage of this freedom in my schedule, I spent a few days with friends in London. I returned to write an essay, and realized that I needed to change my topic just a few days before the due date. I just turned it in a couple nights ago. I hope I can catch up on sleep in the next few days.
After a six hour train ride across England, I arrived in London. Having spent the last couple months in a small town, I forgot how fast paced life can be. Immediately I became one of millions hopping on the tube from King’s Cross to a little borough in NE London where I stayed with some friends. They even had a piece of OBU for me to enjoy my coffee in…
I randomly, or providentially, attended The Village Church’s two year birthday service! It was great to celebrate a place and a gathering of people which was my home during a formational time in my life. Enjoy the pictures!
After a great Sunday with amazing people, Five Guys for lunch the next day, and a visit to the 30th floor of the Barclays Bank building, I went on the Christian Heritage Tour in London with an Oklahoman friend (who happens to be from London originally).
After a fun, relaxing trip to see friends in London, I made my way back up the countryside to good ole Scotland. After getting some rest, I set about to get an essay written for the following Monday. I had done some reading and research while in London, but I realized Friday that I had to throw it all out. It wasn’t going to work. Providentially, I had received a free book from one of my professors that had some information related to the topic. I opened it hoping to find an essay that would connect. There it was. I read it. I disagreed with it. I wrote an essay about it, and I turned it in a couple nights ago. Now I just need to catch up on some sleep before the next one.
