Busy, Busy, Busy

I'm so busy these days and I don't have time to blog regularly.
However, every needs to take time to laugh. I get my regular stress relieving laughs in on reddit usually, but I was recently shown this video and it always makes me smile. So take a gander. It isn't entirely safe for work. It really depends on how cool your job is and if your boss looks over your shoulder.
I present LMFAO's song Sexy and I know It. 
Enjoy, have a good laugh and I'll be posting pictures from my Paris day trip in about 2 weeks.

For the past several years I've had friends go to MoogFest. I would love to go, but I've never had the opportunity. But this isn't about me talking about music festivals I would go to, but just sharing the photo a friend of mine took. This quotation really resounded with me and I just want to share it. 

"To be human, to be fully human, is to need music and to derive nourishment
from the music you hear."
I hope you all had a great week and the next one is looking just as well for you all. For everyone back in Georgia, I look forward to seeing you all again, but first I have to bust my hump for a few more weeks before we can catch up. 
Be kind to yourself. Cheers! ♥monica

Bonfire Night: November 5

Last night was Bonfire Night/ Guy Fawkes Day. I went down to Battersea Park to view the bonfire and the fireworks and it was incredible! There were so many people there it was pretty intense for me, it's estimated that there where 40,000 people there! Yikes, but I am getting better with crowds. I have to living in a city like London. Here's my first attempt at making a gif. I thought it would be nice if I could share the spectacular fireworks from last night with you all. 
This is was my first attempt at making a gif and it's a little slower than I would like, but much better than the first I made. It was so fast I was afraid it could trigger a seizure. (I'm only half joking about that too!)

Photo Drop: Italy

I'm too busy these days, but I want to get you all up to speed on  my adventures.
Last week was reading week, essentially spring break in fall, so it goes without saying that there was not much reading done. I do however have a mass of photos to share, so without much further ado
....Italy Pictures!
Venice: How perfectly Italian!


Venice Biennial 

Great Britain's Pavilion at the Biennial

Biennial- I forget which pavilion. 

The Colosseum 

The Colosseum

The Pantheon 

Trevi Fountain- Yes, I did make a wish. 

Rome at Night

Self Timed and Auto-Focused- This is what I got.
Haha, brilliant photobomb!
The School of Athens: Raphael

No Pictures in the Sistine Chapel?! Ha! I didn't have my flash on,
so no harm was done to the fresco. 

St Peter's Basilica 

Mt Vesuvius and a derpy jumping picture of me in Pompeii.
I hope you all enjoyed my pictures. The trip was incredible and exhausting. I'll try and go through and post my iphone pictures sometime soon. I don't always have my Canon on me, so I don't get nice pictures of everything. I do,  however, always have my iphone so I always have picture from it and the pictures are surprisingly good. I hope you all have an incredible weekend. I'm off to do some school work and reading before Bondfire Night and the fireworks. It is the 5th of November and I am in London, so I'm going to do this properly tonight. : )
Be kind to yourselves. ♥monica
