Friday, 5 July 2013: So I have been very bad (basically horrible) about updating my blog since I started writing my dissertation, which, thank the Lord, is almost finished. So, here is a quick review of all the cool places I’ve been, and maybe when I get tired of editing my dissertation, I will actually tell you about where I’ve been and what I’ve done. But for now, enjoy!

Canterbury, England

16. Then came back to Leicester to write this dissertation, but of course we took a break to celebrate Canada Day with this cool Canadian!

 

 

 

 

 

17. Then we decided we needed to learn some more history, so we dropped in at Shakespeare’s house and caught up to speed on some of our sonnet memorizing.

 

 

 

 

 

18. And finally, we celebrated the America on July 4th in style in England.

 

 

 

 

So, maybe once I’m done with this dissertation, I will actually tell you about all of the really cool and awesome adventures I have had at all of these places.
