i have a home!
Oh my god I can't believe it I've never been this far away from home And oh my god I can't believe it I've never been this far away from home
Kaiser Chiefs, Oh My God
so exciting, im now sitting on the little couch thingy in my NEW room in my NEW terrace share-house! i had wednesday off so decided to move in then. since getting to london i have managed to acquire heapsa new clothes so packing all my gear up had my pack almost bursting at the seams! although, i also had two other backpacks and my lappy box so i kinda hadta make a few trips AND rope Lisa in to helping me. so yeah i now live in room two of 8 Claudia Jones Way, Clapham Park, SW2 5PP, London. wooooo!
although i was more than glad to leave the couch behind, it did suck to leave chris, malin, angus, lisa and mike's place.. was def a cool place to hang out. HOWEVER my new home is only about 5 mins walk down the road. so thats cool, il still be able to see those guys pretty regularly.
my new housemates are pretty cool. theres Manu, from Italy, Scott, from Quakers hill in syd and Paul from Poland. theyre a pretty friendly bunch and so i can see me getting along with them well. my room is pretty damn big compared to a lot of the places i looked at! iv got a double bed and a huge wardrobe. theres also a set of drawers and a little couch/seat thingy. but thats it. on wed i went shopping for a doona cos that was the most urgent need. i soon plan on getting sheets and a doona cover and coathangers. i can also see me needing a clothes horse, rubbish bin and maybe some speakers.. chris and others have shown me round the places to pick up cheap stuff and bargains so it should be all good.
um what else... work is cool, iv been pretty busy last few days cos like 4 ppl are on holidays (incl malin who with chris went to venice last weekend!) but thats not so bad, think about the money not the work! theres a cool bunch of people working there so that makes it fun. oh and i havnt mentioned that jess works there too so thats cool.
oh and finally met up with kate last weekend. she came and we spent the day hanging out. she also came when when i went to meet the other flat mates of where i am now, and she was impressed with the room!
k gonna post up more crap like pics and that soon...
i've decided that now is the time for me to make my first overseas endeavor, and so i am doing a bit of traveling, doing a bit of working, and mostly just doing a bit of everything.
so i leave (or have already left!) Sydney on March 3 for numerous overseas locations: some already planned, many not.
wish me luck!
