Met some Lords, ate some chicken.

After my normal Drama lesson this morning (in which we covered very raw and interesting practicals of Stanislavskian techniques), I went to meet two Lords! We had a trip to the Houses of Parliament and, after a tour of the House of Commons and sitting in on a debate in the House of Lords, we had a Q&A session with Lord Tyler and Lord Deben. I was shaking, but I fought my nerves and asked them how they felt about the fact that although women are still a minority in government, decisions upon issues relating to female-exclusive health concerns are made there (and asked whether they felt that could create or allow for legitimate representation of interests) which led to an interesting discussion with them both for about twenty minutes about representation of women at every level in England. My teacher was quite impressed.
After this, I rushed back to college to leave for the theatre to see a play called Woyzeck. My classmates couldn't really understand it, but it quite discomforted me. It was very well played.
Then I got the tube home with friends and fourteen chicken nuggets in my usually tiny tummy, no lie.
Aaaaaahhh. I am gonna sleep so well tonight.
