It’s been 6 months since I’ve moved to London. I’ve settled onto my new job and my new home. I’ve gotten to know my housemates a little more and vice versa. I’ve learnt to make quick dinners and look after myself so I don’t fall ill; although it is hard to when your colleagues are prone to be I’ll everyday…
Becoming a Londoner is quite scary, the people in London aren’t so much as friendly as those from the village I come from. If you greet a stranger in the morning you may be given looks or that they might start stalking you- this has happened to me. There are some who will say “hi” back but in such a busy city, no one has time for you. However there are some exceptions.
On the other side, there is a lot more to do so I’ve started to sign up for more new things to do such as learning Spanish, going to the cinema a lot more and starting Tae Kwon Do. I thought this would make my evenings more eventful and so I wouldn’t be cooped up inside the house. I also don’t have internet installed but have found it okay so far. It really isn’t convenient in this day and age and means you would need to go back to phoning friends and family more rather than using Skype but I’m managing and haven’t found it dire that I seriously need the internet. Many of my friends think I’m mad and ask how i cope, I believe it’s due to the fact that I have internet at work and on my mobile so I’m not 100% internet-deprived. Maybe when I have a place of my own and know for sure that I will be staying for a long time I will install it.
Have you started anything new for the new year? Would you have been able to cope without internet if you lived out? Let me know in the comments below!
