So far so good...

Well, lots has happened in the last month or two I have ignored this blog. I now have steady internet access so I hope to change my slacker ways. After unsuccessfully trying to find a job as an illegal in London I decided to apply for a student visa. Then suddenly I was offered two jobs out of the blue (well, thanks to my bf... but also partly to my own merits as a developer and electronics engineer) and have not yet gotten the damn visa. I plan to get it as soon as possible, I mean it includes medical coverage and no sneaking around, so I will do that eventually, once I get enough cash (which could be this very week!).

I've been to the theater several times (or as they call it here, the "theatre"). I saw "The Goat or Who is Sylvia" (odd yet thought-provoking), "Democracy" (good and very informative), "The Lion King" (bad story and crummy songs, but absolutely amazing physical production). And I hope to see many many more...

Right now I'm doing some work at the robotics company where my bf works (sadly, he's on vacation in Mexico... without me!!! ARRRGGGGHHH!!!). My work mates are really friendly and they're interesting people. I'm also doing some work at a web development company. In a single day I work part time in each place and also go to school for 3hrs, which is a bit tiring, but I hope I'll get the hang of it eventually. I just started my English classes this week and they are quite entertaining, hehe, I'll talk about them later.

Well, that's my life so far. I'm missing my guy a lot, "theatre", workin' and studyin'. And also trying to write something meaningful. Someday...

Voyageurs

Everytime you get on a bus in London (be it double decker, bendy or regular) you can be pretty sure you'll see somebody with a suitcase. They're everywhere. I see the travelers hurrying along the crowded streets all the time. Upon seeing them, I suddenly recall being at the beginning of a journey, suitcase in hand (or backpack). I can feel some of that excitement and possibility just waiting to be caught. It surrounds you and it fills you with energy and zest. You look around yourself and almost feel sorry at the poor shmucks who are headed nowhere today, just in their usual routines, like yesterday and the day after that. Today is just a normal day for them, but it's the start of an adventure for you.

This is why I envy travelers, this is how I feel they look at me. Bastards.
