My first Pub!

 
Have I said its good to be back? Cause it is...
 
The pictures there kinda suck, but I was still new with the camera, they get better I promise!! The last one is really blurry, but its just to give you an Idea of what they looked like...
 
Alright well the very first day there was just getting to know everyone...We went (the girls) and checked out our rooms and then all met back in Ali's room where I was interrogated lol and then we went to go find ITT....They decided to put me in charge of finding the place. Apparently my face was funny because they all burst out laughing.
 
 "Um....Are you sure?"
 
Debbie "this will be your school lesson for the day!"
 
I rolled my eyes. Not in front of her though, this was when I was still being polite.
 
I told them fine but I hope they don't mind walking a lot cause the chances of me getting you lost are high. They said they didn't mind...And...I FOUND IT! All by myself!!! I was proud of myself. (still am actually) So we get there and look at all the stuff they have and the girls decided to get tickets for The Big Bus tour the next day...I had to be a kid because the kid price was a lot cheaper...you know the kids age ends at 15 or 16 in most place there? I read one sign  that said "Kids 16 and under should be accompanied by an adult" which made me laugh. It was for some tour, I don't remember which one though. Then we went back to our rooms, well I went with Ali cause dad said to stay with her, but the others went to their own rooms to unpack and everything. Then all the guys got back and we went to eat dinner. At a restaurant/pub. My very first pub! I got fish & chips cause someone said it was good. I wasn't impressed though...it didn't have much flavor. But the one of dads friends did say that it depends on where you go cause some places have crappy fish & chips. I found that out...not much food there has flavor to it. So we finish our food and everyone isdrinking or talking....And then Chester comes along. This guy cant handle his drink very well (and before I go on, I don't want everyone thinking I was hanging out with a bunch of drunk people lol, everyone was very responsible about it and some of them didn't drink at all.) He comes over when everyone was asking me what Iplanned to do when I was done with high school, and I said I planned to go to college and study graphics design and then I also wanted to do something with Travel...And then Chester comes in "You should join the air force" ...Me "um....no. That's not really for me...I don't do well with people yelling at me" and then he starts to get really loud but I don't remember what he had said and I'm all "Yeah....See that reverse psychology doesn't work on me" and everyone started laughing and he got a little louder and at this point everyone came to my rescue and Chester went to get another drink lol. Needless to say I kept away from him for the majority of the trip. And dad says that the next day everyone was telling him they were really impressed with the way I handled myself (Even Debbie came up to me telling me she was very impressed and surprised with the way I handled myself and he really shouldn't have been in my face like that) Then we all we back to the base and went our own ways....and that was my first day in England! Did you know it doesn't get dark there till like ten? And the weather there was SO nice. The Base there was really small though, and the amount of security they had was kind of odd...it wasn't like they had anything important there, the one at Macdill probably has more to hide and even they arent as bad..they were constantly checking our ID's even if (and i'm pretty sure they did) they recognized us. Which i guess is good, but still. What someone might go around and steal the Lavender? ::looks at Debbie::
