Hehe. Interesting scores. I wonder how differently I would have scored at the beginning of the year. I think my “body” score would definitely have been up in the blue. *sigh* Sucks that I just don’t have time to exercise much these days. No gym membership yet (can’t afford it) and no time to go even if I did. Haven’t even been dancing much yet… but I’m still settling into things, and I fully intend to get back into dance and exercise.

I’ve been thinking about home a fair bit this past week or 2. Just remembering things… people… friends… what life was like back then. Sometimes I think I was happier then. Sometimes I really miss Sydney – particularly my friends. Yes I do really miss you guys (if any of you still read this that is). Life really was great for those few months before I left for London. Had heaps of friends, met lots of cool people… was fit and healthy… full of energy. Not that its not been pretty cool being here too. Its just….. not as good as many people seem to rave about. For me anyway. There have been alot of downers during my time here. (Its been 6 months and 3 weeks exactly now. How time flies!) And yeh… maybe it’s just me, but I’m not really “having a ball” as many people have described coming to London. But I wonder… is it just me.. my mindset.. my negativity. How much difference can ones mindset and attitude make to ones life? Hrm.

Anyways… sometimes I rather dislike London. Its a huge city full of people… and yet you can feel so lonely. It’s expensive, and stressful. Maybe I’m not cut out for big metropolitan city living? Maybe I long to retire to a small sunny town by the sea. Hmm… that does sound appealing… particularly the sunny and sea part. 😛

Please excuse my morbid musings. I’m just typing things as I think about them. I made a list the other day about the things I love and hate about London. Lets see if I can find it…..

Things I love:

  • Always so many things to do, so much on, so many opportunities to experience so many different things!
  • Being able to get around so easily without a car on the fairly well-established public transport system
  • The power of the pound in Europe, being so close to Europe and really cool places like Italy
  • Salsa clubs
  • Lots of gigs
  • The independance
  • My bf (well he *is* British!)

Things I hate:

  • Transport/travel – takes ages, is crowded and tiring
  • Unhealthier lifestyle, fast-paced and stressful – not laidback or peaceful
  • Long working hrs – little time to exercise, spend at home and relax, or do things I enjoy
  • Going home alone / being alone
  • Cost of everthing – so friggin expensive!!
  • The cold weather
  • Cramped living spaces/buildings/everything!!

Hm… so thats my analysis of London so far. I’m sure there are many more things I have yet to discover. But it’s after midnight now, and this little girlie has to go sleep coz she’s already turned into a pumpkin. And on that note, g’nite all.

Oops final note. Today is my last day on dialup! Tomm I’m getting Homechoice broadband and digital tv installed.. yay! Job is going ok, but I’ve got big deadlines for this Wed and through Dec. Eeek!! Oh and lastly, I’m sick. Managed to get a cold from last week at work (heaters aren’t working properly). 🙁

    Hey Kaz, have you found a church to go to yet? That might be a start to not feeling so lonely.

    We miss you too! =)

    I’ll commiserate with you. I’ve got a nasty cold too. Get better soon.
