Whoa, it’s been a few days, but I finally have some time to give a quick update!

I have arrived in England! Well, I’ve been in England since Monday technically, but between settling in and the Oxford orientation, it was extremely hectic!

Excuse my exhausted expression; my flight left Chicago at around 4PM local time, and when this photo was taken, it was 6AM in England. After running around all day traveling from London to Oxford, then to meet my Oxford tutor, then to the stores for groceries, then to my flat… Needless to say, I was practically dead by the time I finally got to sleep around 1AM the next morning. Curse you, jetlag!

But I am here! I am in England, and holy shit, it is gorgeous. I may post some updates on my time here and maybe some pictures. If you don’t want them flooding your dash, feel free to blacklist #gisselle goes to oxford !

Have a lovely day, everyone!

Twitter users reported thousands of concert goers fled the arena covered in blood and crying, although it is not immediately clear what the reported "loud bangs" were. The noises were heard towards the end of the show, with witnesses claiming on social media they believed the bangs were a "gun shot" or a "bomb".
