Monday morning dawned ice cold, so I slept in a little bit until it warmed up before heading out on my run. After eating breakfast and watching some US election coverage, which was very good in the UK, I went downtown in order to begin working on my second set of papers, due in only four weeks. I worked until around 5 before going for a short walk and then heading back to the apartment to eat dinner. Following dinner, I did a little bit more work and chatted with friends before going to bed.
Tuesday, I had to get up early in order to fit my run in before class, which I had from 10 until 6. After returning home following my classes, I ate dinner and did a little bit of grocery shopping before working on my papers some more and beginning to watch election coverage as the results crept in. I went to bed with Mitt Romney in the lead about 33-3 in electoral votes, as it was 1 AM my time at that point and I was exhausted - but I was also totally unsure about who was going to win.
I got up at 7 London time in order to check the results and again in order to fit my run in before my 10 AM class. After class let out at noon, I got a small bite of lunch before doing some more work on one of my papers as I tried to knock some of it out with a busy final month abroad. That lasted until about 4:30, at which point I took another walk in Hyde Park before heading home on the tube, eating, and packing for Prague. After watching a movie, I went to bed at 11.
Thursday morning I slept in before going for my run and eating some brunch. After finalizing my packing, I headed down to class, from which I left for my trip to the Czech Republic directly at 2 PM.
