We the set the art show up this morning in the Great Hall, and the rest of the day was libre.
The evening was much more exciting: BONFIRE!!!
We went out to the pitch where wood has been gathering all semester at 7:30, which was a bit too light to start the fire, if you ask me. It was also rather chilly and windy. I've decided that the English don't know how to do a good bonfire. Or grill anything. The hotdogs we had were boiled even though we had a grill that was being used to roast marshmallows for English-style Smores. Marshmallows and Digestives (chocolate covered biscuits. And by biscuits, I mean cookies). Definitely sweet. A little too much, if you ask me. In any case, there was a TON of smoke with the bonfire because they were burning a lot of tree branches and dead plant matter along with wood, including a blue door and a mattress. The door was kind of interesting because it caused some of the flames to turn blue and green. Needless to say, the bonfire didn't last long, and once we got too cold, we headed back inside to study before finals Saturday. Saturday I have my math final, Sunday is English novel, Monday is my art portfolio review, and Wednesday is the British Studies exam. Then, I have a down day and an 8-hour flight to Chicago. I don't want the semester to end!! I'll miss England and Harlaxton so much! Well, maybe not the food.
