I'M in LONDON!
haven't got much time to write everything, but i'm here... and i'm really excited.
Yena and i saw Judi Dench in front of the National Portrait Museum... looking as lovely as ever!
So a few things have been amounting of all the things that I will miss while I'm away to England. But I can definitely say that of the few things, I really am deeply saddened that I will not be able to attend the Takashi Murakami exhibit at MOCA in l.a. I definitely hope that everyone else picks up the pace and goes from Oct 29th and onward. Maybe I'll make it to see when I come home for Christmas.
Along with his wild art, there are limited edition Takashi Murakami Louis Vuitton that will be sold at the exhibit. Though his items are much more oddly designed like his eyeball monogram, and are more of a miss to me, it would be awesome to see what he comes up with.

after all this time you think you might be sick of a place like LA.
Los Angeles especially seems to have so many more downs then it does ups. We're west coast bitches, snot head, dumb blonde, breast implanting, pollutionation, dirty beach water, and damn traffic people. But I was completely amazed by how much I missed this place when I was away in Korea for two months over the summer. What is it that other non-angelinos are missing out on? Everything L.A., Duh.
You've got wonderful dirty Mexican food in every part of town, shopping mecca of the West Coast, Disneyland, the Dodgers, the Lakers, the Clippers (Yes, the Clippers), David Beckham (he came here by his own accord), Malibu, Zuma, Laguna, South Pasadena, and well, me.
But why study abroad after so much love for a place I call home? There are so many different answers to that question but really all in all LA is home, and I can always come back here even if I go somewhere far away for awhile. Studying abroad has been something that I've always wanted to do ever since I was in 5th grade. All throughout middle school I would fantasize about going to France to study abroad and become this high-browed French girl. But plans work out differently and instead I'm headed to England where I'll become a high-browed English girl. But really England provides me with the requirements I need for major and allows for me to go to Europe as I had wished to do from the get-go. So, begins my countdown from today. My flight is on the 15th of September and I land in Heathrow, London noon of the 16th.
Wish me luck. cheers!
