Summer Trip '09.. on a budget.

Nothing makes a trip more official than having your airplane ticket booked, and consequently seeing your bank statements after the payment has been processed. I am feeling very optimistic about this trip although for the first few days I will have nobody to share my adventures with.

And forget that tentative list I posted earlier. I am spending alot less time in London as previously thought. I will be spending at least 2 full days in London, a day in Cambridge and two days in Derbyshire. So I'll be seeing the city and the English countryside. Apparently, buses are much cheaper than train so that is the primary mode of transportation that my sister and I will be taking.

Oh, and I depart on August 3rd and arrive back in the U.S. on the 10th. I will take many many pictures.

Last.Fm

I wanted to discover new music about a year ago, so I signed up for a lastfm account. I didn't really use this social network the way it was supposed to be.. I kept listening to the same 200 out of over 2000 songs on my iTunes. But the past few months, I've proactively tried to listen to other stuff and I even took the eclectic test application on lastfm. Check that, I took the SUPER ECLECTIC test and surprisingly got a 754/1000. According to the creator, any score over 700 is something to brag about. I guess since I like some country, techno, hip hop and everything in between, I got that score..

Add me. And forgive me for listening to Nickelback.
