I am Pascale and will be living in London for a while. You can read all about my brain-dead tourist situations, embarrassing cultural mistakes and see all the pictures and videos I make. I will also post some proper blogs about the work I do to please my parents and teachers. I'd appreciate it if you left a comment. Use the links underneath the top picture to navigate.

18 sleeps

It's getting closer and closer and I'm getting more and more excited! Especially after reading blogs of my classmates who've already traveled to their destination. Suzanne, Danielle and Carola have landed in Belfast this week and reading their blogs is sort of making me jealous. Yet, I am still happy that I'm home a couple more weeks.

Tomorrow I'm going to go shopping with Celesta. She's kidnapping me for the day (her words) and won't let me go home until the next day. We're shopping in Rotterdam, then go have dinner somewhere and after that we're going clubbing. The things I'll most be looking out for are 'office clothes'. People who are not familiar with the UK and their workfield probably don't know this, but as a teacher you aren't really allowed to wear jeans... or trousers that look like jeans. Also, because I don't want to come across as this free-Dutch-girl (because in Holland nothing is really shocking) I'll also be careful with low cleavage and too short dresses and skirts. It's not a problem, I just need a new wardrobe... which I don't mind of course. Any excuse for a new wardrobe really.

My packing list is getting longer and longer. I am absolutely terrified I'll forget something, so I'm constantly thinking about what to bring with me. I know that it won't be THAT big of a deal if I forget something, since my parents are coming over a week after I've moved in and they're able to bring stuff I've forgotten.

It's only 18 sleeps away, and I'm definitely counting down! If you happen to know of an item or several items that you have forgotten when you moved away - let me know so I won't make the same mistakes!

Two-thousand and eleven

And now, since it's actually 2011 - HAPPY NEW YEAR! Any resolutions? I usually don't do these - when I do make myself a list, I forget about it Jan 1st because of my hang over. Hmmm... let's see. I guess that the most obvious one would have to be to HAVE FUN. Not that I haven't had any fun in the previous year, but 2011 is going to be an awesome year and I can't wait what all awaits me.

If you've got any resolutions that you are actually planning to STICK TO (who ever does that? doesn't everyone sort of get over their resolutions mid January?) I wish you all the luck and strength you need!
