well I think that London loved me so much that it felt the need to send me home with a cold so I wouldn't miss it too much. But we'll pretend that's not the case and that some bean head on the airplane gave it to me instead. Yeah I've decided that London is the best place to live. Life was so much simpler then. I didn't worry about how much I spent or where the money was coming from. It didn't matter that I didn't have a job or anything like that. Now here I am with one little tiny part time 12 hour a week job that isn't going to pay the bills. Yeah life was so much simpler. I didn't have to worry about the rising price of oil, or how my car was parked in the garage. Or which side of the road we drive on or anything. I just hopped on The Tube and away I went. Oh good times. And when I felt particularly anxious or worried I could just bop on down to Tesco and get me a nice Dairy Milk bar and life was wonderful again. Now I have to ration the few Dairy Milk bars I had the foresight to bring home because who knows when the next one will be. Oh how I miss the simple times. but perhaps things will get better soon. I suppose this is all just part of going through London withdrawl. anyhow.... Oh the good times in London. And yes this is a rather delightful picture of my dear Great Gherkin.

This will be very short as I need sleep. but I just need to take a moment and formally say goodbye to my dearest London. She is such an amazing city and I cannot wait till the time when I can once again fly over her lovely landscape and into one of her airports. I will miss dearly everything about this city, except perhaps the people who refuse to stand on the right of the escalators thus clogging them up for those who have places to be and people to meet. but suffice it to say that this was a wonderful trip and I am thoroughly glad that I could have the opportunity to come here and learn and grow and study. I hope that I can manage to come back again soon. Dear London, I love you. I already miss you. Take care of yourself.
