There is way too much homework and work going on for me to sit here and write about something other than bats.
This week I am being dragged off to Arneside with my coursemates for 3 days (we don’t get back until 9-pm ish on Wednesday and we leave tomorrow at 9 am) and then daily field trips that are “around Newcastle.” We do go back to Houghall College outside of Durham, so that should be alright. We know what to expect there and we know where the toilets are!
The spring weather has hit full blast. Everyone is out and about in very short outfits. And some people are sporting some serious sunburns. I wonder why they don’t use sunblock. Maybe because it’s frickin £8 (that’s the cheap stuff, £13 is where the “good stuff” is apparently) a bottle!!! What is with this country?!? Our $8 bottles of sunscreen are rather large, these, are not. If it were a Costco sized bottle for $13, yeah sure, that makes sense, but these are 300 mL if not less.
Mutter mutter gripe grumble. Yup that’s me. And just so you know, I splurged and got the “cheap” sunscreen in the hopes that I will not turn lobster red any time soon. I burn quickly, although someone seems to have gotten sunburn on the back of his legs right above his knees and I hardly look like I got any sun at all (except for that sunburned part. . .oops, that got red).
