So one of the main reasons for coming to London is SUMMER SCHOOL. And while the last few days have been amazing to see the city, its back to reality (kind of). Classes started this morning at 9 am down the road at Foundation House. First class of the day: English 333:Literary London: The City and the Romantic Imagination. This classes has me reading poetry out loud to my classmates, which will prove to be interesting. We are taking the poetry that we read and relating it back to the city and our experiences here. Second Class of the day: Theatre (catch that?) 390: World Drama. For this class we will be reading a couple of plays as well as seeing 16 different performances, which averages around 2.5 a week. I think with that schedule, by the end of the summer I will be a theatre buff. Third Class of the day: Humanities 316. THis class is brief history of city of London. It also incorporates a field trip class. On every Tuesday we will be heading around the cities most famous destinations. That concluded my schooling for the day. After we hit up the grocery store and stocked up on food for the week.
We then headed out to Kensington Garden, right across the street, to do some poetry reading. Not many people can say that they are going to go study by the palace! I'm spending the rest of my night studying my London history and reading up on Macbeth, the "Scottish Play" in preparation to see it at the Globe TOMORROW!
