So I'm alive, but it's been a super busy past few days so I haven't been able to update you all on what's going on. I'm doing well but there is so much that's happened I'll try and tell you what I've been up too.
So the last time that I talked to you all I had just enrolled into the university. And now I have my classes all sorted out. It was a bit of a nightmare at first due to the fact that I really didn't understand the timetabling process here. Timetabling is basically just how a student's class schedule works back home. I had a class overlapping with another class so I had to drop one and pick up another one to make it all work out but it's all good now.
Last Sunday I went on a harbor cruise which was great fun. I got to see the bay and the harbor, as well as see the Hoe from the water. For those of you that don't know the Hoe is one of the biggest parks in all of Plymouth and one of the most scenic ones as well. As you can see with the pictures above and below.
But I learned a lot about the history of the city and how it was a huge naval town, and the fact that the Mayflower took off from here (which I already knew). But it was great to learn so much about the city and about the British flag as well. Fun fact for you all the only time you can call the British flag a Union Jack is if it is on one of Her Majesty's Ships.
I now have flatmates and they are all awesome, and want to see me have the time of my life here. I have six other flatmates, Tom, Rob, Sophie, Ellie, Katie, and Rose who are all great to live with. We have made plans to have thanksgiving here and they are all pumped to do that. They have also made me a list of British things that I need to do, and I got to cross one of those things off my list the other day.
I had proper fish and chips, and I don't think I will ever get fish and chips this good in the states. So I think I might have ruined fish and chips for me back home. Tip for everyone who is going to plymouth go to the Harborside in the Barbican, and get the fish and chips with just salt and vinegar and you won't be disappointed.
I know this is been a crazy update post but I wanted to let you all know I'm all good here and having a blast. I start classes on Monday so I hope to post more often because I will be a lot more structured on how much time I have on my hands. I hope you all have a great day, and I'll talk to you all soon!
