In just five days I’m moving back to London. Writing that here in my bed having just finished my last day at school, I shiver. I made it. Although terrified I’m longing so much to move back to my favourite city and my friends. Here are other things I am looking forward to:
– Moving in with Daniel again after 15 month apart and unpacking all my stuff. Then to hang my paintings and decorate the space with my boyfriend who’s got the best taste.
– Weekday pub nights when it’s pouring down outside.
– Hearing the British accent everywhere.
– Running in the rain with people I love.
– To walk across Millenium Bridge and feel like I’m in Harry Potter but no I live here there is magic and then visit Tate Modern.
– Get sushi delivered home and have it in bed with Daniel whilst watching Les Revenants naked.
– Free healthcare.
– Ending up at weird late night parties when all you were suppose to do was going for one pint.
– Walking home in chilly darkness after Wednesday cinema nights.
– Pasta dinners at V & Alex’s.
– Weekend trips to British towns and cities. Next I want to visit Margate, Bath and Scotland.
– Riding the fogged up double deckers with friends singing loudly, not knowing where we are heading but anywhere will be fun.
– Falling asleep on the same double decker bus back.
– Walking through London Fields when the trees are turning red to then go home and drink mulled wine.
– Knowing that I’ll go dancing several times a month.
– Being able to go to all the gigs at Birthdays, Shacklewell Arms and the Old Blue Last several times a week if I want to.
– Invite people over to my own flat for my birthday or just to make them dinner, because it’s MY HOME.
– Finding new rooftops to hang out at, and visit all my old ones.
– Afford eating out a lot and often at new spots.
– Canalside pre parties with my cuties.
– Being able to say yes to an invite from my friends on the same day/week and not having to book a flight.
– Spontaneous brunches at friends’ houses on Saturdays.
– Discovering all the weird spots in my local area, like the Geffrye Museum in Haggerston.
– Getting away from the fitness/health/food obsession and be able to eat fries for lunch without people choking.
– Living within a 20min walking distance to most of my friends, favourite restaurants and bars.
– Walk through all the arches, by the brick buildings and dirty streets and love the lively gloominess.
– Sunday roasts at the pub and I can afford to eat out.
– How everybody has a need to create so there are new exhibitions, events, art nights, festivals all the time.
– And finally that I won’t have to move any time soon but can for once properly set up my life in FREAKING LONDON.
