London Thoughts

Currently at work. Listening to Alicia Keys.

I have completed my projects for the summer by probably 85-90%. There's only 20 minutes left, and I am as they say here blocked. As in I don't know how much more I can do until I have some feedback, critique, and editing on my digital piece.

So for the last 20 minutes I guess I am just reflecting on my experience here in London. I can't believe I am further than the half way point, I can't believe that I have only two more weekends over here and I'm not even spending them in London because we're going to Germany and then Spain after that. I can't see going out any other way.

This trip has been a roller coaster. Like literally at one point we were riding roller coasters. I did not think it was possible to do so much in one summer. It is the most crazy fast paced life ever. It's a bit exhausting but it is so amazing. When I get back it's going to just be a magical dream in my memory. ~ You think that it was an adjustment coming here? No. I think the real adjustment is going to be going back.

There are so many crazy things this life has to offer, and this trip has kind of taught me that you just got to go for them. It may be scary to take that leap of faith, but it is so necessary for you to grow. And I don't think anyone wants to get to the end of their life and feel like they just allowed themselves to get stuck in a rut.

You have one life to live. Write your own story. And few more cliches, but for real.

peace

First Timer on the Tube

Ok guys, today was the first day of my internship, and with that the first time I traveled the Tube alone. (Also take note that I only took it one time before with the girls.) So here I am trying to follow the map on my phone to the tube station, and mind you it is very windy, very rainy, and in consequence very cold. But I find the station and it surprises me a bit on how crowded it was or should I say how uncrowded it was. I really assumed it would be more packed.

Time to get on and I find a seat, no problem, all is well. But that was only the short trip, then I had to switch platforms to head to the train/tube (whatever) to Wimbledon. On that trip it got a bit crowded at the first few stops, but as we got further from Central London, the crowds thinned out quite a bit.

So all in all, the tube IS NOT as bad as it seems at all.

Therefore ladies and gents have no fear, and ride away to your hearts content.
peace and sunny days from london 🙂
