Living in London.
Friends tell me I'm cute.
I came to London in August 2005 to elope with my Boyfriend (yes, it's still the same one!) from
overprotective parents and loving families. I came to study commercial law and to have time of my life. London is one of the most famous cities in the world and simply makes you fall in love with it. Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's funny and every once in a while I still pinch myself that I actually REALLY LIVE here! I met wonderful people here and I'm sure that the friendships I made are for lifetime.
At the moment I've just finished my studies and I'm trying to find a job. Which is hard and horribly stressful. I cry a lot and do little. I have a fantastic Boyfriend and friends who want to help me, but I think that I need to sort out myself first. At least that's what I thought. Now I think that I need to go out and see them and not just close doors in front of my eyes. Which is hard. But I'm still trying.
Some random facts:
- I secretly believe that all of our toys have a secret life when we leave the room and it takes them only nanoseconds to come back to positions where we left them (and no - cameras in the room do NOT prove anything!).
- I like to wake up to a sunny morning, read a new book (but first I have to check if it smells good i.e. smell newesness), painting, traveling, going to an exhibition... all things arty.
- I hate cooking. It is the worst punishment imaginable for me. I can't cook, I hate kitchen and the idea of spending hours preparing and cleaning after is really putting me off! Fortunately I am still living (moderately) healthy thanks to my amazing Boyfriend who loves to cook, bake, marinate, fry etc., etc. Personally - I am even scared to put something in an oven!
- At the moment, my mantras are:
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear. (Mark Twain)
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
