Today was Alexandria's 2??th Birthday! I got off at the King Street Metro and began walking towards the Water. I made it about 6 blocks and stopped to look into an Ethiopian Gift Shop where I bought some new gold earrings. Then I walked another 8 blocks and on my way, I ran into a horse in a truck.
After walking 14 blocks, I decided that I would stop and rest my feet at a movie. Good times. Raisinettes! Wahoo! I really liked this movie.
After the movie, my friend Zach called. I served my mission in East Texas. Abby was in high school when I served in her town. Zach and Abby went to college together. We all met up for dinner! It was a great reunion.
This is just another picture of the Masonic Temple I took on my way home.
I didn't make any plans before this day began. I was open to whatever came my way, and I'm really pleased with how things panned out. I had plenty of solitary time. I spent time on the metro reading scriptures and people watching. I walked all over the place. And I was able to enjoy the company of old friends and new friends. I enjoyed wonderful food and great shopping. I kept thinking about how happy I was in London. I realized today that I've come full circle. Back in London, I took classes and spent the rest of the time touring, people watching, and writing in my journal.
Today, I realized that I am now teaching classes, and I spend the rest of my time touring, people watching, and writing in my journal. Now, I did spend my fair share of time making out with random strangers in London, but you can get away with that kind of frivolity when you're 19. I'm 30. I can hardly go around making out with total strangers now!
Then again . . . you only live once!
