Hey there. How have you been? I’m on my two hour break from work and I’m sitting in my room listening to Twenty One Pilots – fairly happy, if I do say so myself. It’s been a while and quite a lot has changed since. I moved my humble abode and now live in a flat with some pretty amazing people, in a pretty amazing location.
For the first time in having moved here I finally feel settled. Back down to one job – at the pub which I absolutely adore – and paying my own rent and buying my own groceries. I think this is the life I’ve been holding out for. I have a space I can have friends over, I’m in a beautiful part of London, and ultimately I’m much happier.
Since moving out and starting back full-time at the pub I’ve been super busy but enjoying the free time that I am now blessed with. I’m still getting used to the fact that I have days off – a complete day to do what I want. Don’t you worry though, I have no difficulty filling the opportune void in my weeks. Trying to settle into a suited new daily routine has proved a little more difficult than first anticipated but I’m doing yoga each morning, eating healthy and slowly becoming the accomplished morning person I’ve always aspired to be.
In 2 days it is the first official day of Summer and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have high expectations for the warmer months ahead. In 3 weeks I’m off to Santorini, Greece, with a friend from New Zealand. It’ll be so nice to get out of London, but also to just lay poolside with a mountain of books and do absolutely nothing for a few days. However, that’s not even the exciting part because in 55 days (yes I’m counting to the day) my parents are coming to London (!!!). I cannot wait to see them after having left New Zealand 16 months ago; we’ve booked a cruise through the Mediterranean and the rest of the time together is unplanned which makes it that much more exciting. I have 4 days off in a row starting this Friday, tossing the idea of travelling about; Copenhagen is top of the list. I almost feel a long weekend of theatre in the West End, writing, books, and cafes sounds just as enticing and a fair bit cheaper, so may end up doing that.
I know this blog seems a bit pointless, but I feel as if I needed to post an update for my own sake – after all this blog is a written document of my life in London.
Hopefully I’ll be back at the keyboard very soon with some actual intellectual and thought out content.
