Early this morning, those of us not going on the college trip to Italy officially left Harlaxton for the last time.
The coach got us to Heathrow by 6:00 AM and we were at the terminal by 7:00 AM. Just as I had calculated in my mind during those many hours of boredom on Thursday. As is usual for British airports, we weren't told our gate until our plane had arrived at the gate, so we sat around in the massive duty-free area while we waited. We were all boarded on the plane by 10:30, but we didn't leave until 12:00 because there were technical problems. So, we were two hours late by the time we reached O'Hare and got through customs. Both Alysa and her boyfriend were there to pick me up, and we headed over to her apartment right nearby IIT's campus. The apartment is really very nice. Although, the building it's located in smells like a hotel. But that's partly because it's so new--2007. We hung out at the apartment for a little while, and then headed out with her and Julie's sorority for dinner. There was a bit of drama going on in the sorority, so it made for a bit of tension during the meal, which lasted until 10:00, by which time I was nearly falling asleep into my food. So, I was dropped off at the apartment and Alysa went over to her boyfriend's.
