Back to school!

I've been in graduate school for 2 weeks now studying International Business and Marketing at London Metropolitan University- the biggest University in London. While I'd rather be studying Fashion Design or Sculpting, I'm sure this is a much more practical degree that should prove useful regardless of where I end up- at least that's what I keep telling myself in order to get through this horribly boring reading.
I've met some good friends- KC from Wisconsin, Fabi from Brazil, and Nicole from San Francisco. KC, Nicole and I met at orientation by spotting each others' passports. Pictured are Nicole and I at her 'pink' party and KC at the International Students' Party.
My school is wonderfully international- a good representation London. In my core module, I made a tally of all of the various countries that were represented. There were only 3 people that spoke English natively. The group included people from: Greece, Poland, Turkey, India, Nigeria, Tunisia, France, Brazil, Holland, Pakistan and Lithuania.
In the picture of the school, I catch my bus home every day from that bus stop. It looks pretty much just like that, only always cloudy.
