Back in London



So one of my New Year Resolutions is to do more things with people. Just before Christmas I had so little money, Yayy high rent and the whole working unpaid "for the experience", I digress, I know there are cheaper places I could live, and I do live in one of the coolest cities in the world, so I've to suck it up as they do say.

Because of the whole rent thing I worked both days I wasn't in Uni, its good to do the shifts when you can, and I do a good job so I might aswell. I was ion work the week before and I got a call from an unknown number, I'm the kind of person that answers every phone call, even when I'm fairly sure its a scammy "we've recently heard you were in a car crash..". So I was there in the kitchen and I get a phone call from the producer of Absolute Radio saying I'd won two tickets to an "Biffy Clyro intimate gig". I hung up the phone and jumped up and down for a while, I was very excited. I then had to figure out who to bring and casually ask said person to the gig, casually, when I am the least casual person ever.

So on Wedneday I went to work in proper gig gear, and changed into my uniform and was counting down the seconds till I was going to go. I get a text message at 6 informing me the gig was in an actual church, which I did know, but I don't think they knew that. I thought maybe it was a converted church, with no pews with a bar but oh no it was not that at all. We sat at the side pew and I figured out the person I brought had heard of one of their songs and I was bringing him to a gig where he was the only person not  a superfan. We had a great time though. He was bopping along to the songs and I was singing along. Biffy are amazing in general but acoustic Biffy are just on another level. Absolute Radio recorded the gig so I'll try and link it when it's available.

Last week, my bff and I were reunited. She asked would I like to head to The Grand in Clapham to go see Pretty Woman, in a nightclub. It was the most fun Saturday evening. During the movie, there was even like "special effects" so when Julia Roberts was in the bath, there was bubbles, and in the last minute they released all of the confetti. Then we had Nandos and went for a drink.
Both nights I had drinks, was totally fine, I just need to continue checking in on myself, and it was nice to hear that I didn't have a problem from my friend who actually sees me drinking.


I'm really back to be in London, doing things, meeting people, trying to do things with other people, I'm trying to talk to my classmates more and putting myself out there with new people
