Well, here I am: a Londoner, at last.
I’ve moved, unpacked and started my first graduate job in Central London. The transition has been quite something and I’m still a little overwhelmed by everything if I’m honest. For the first time since leaving school, my life has a regular rhythm, schedule and commitments. At University, things changed very frequently and my timetable was largely of my own devising and highly variable as a result. Now, with work, I have a regular wake up time and day-to-day pattern. It makes things a lot easier for me.
All in all – despite minor clashes with my flatmates habits – I’m really happy with where I’m living….
Some time ago I worked out that the irregular schedule of University life was responsible for my chronic insomnia. Since starting work, I’ve had no trouble sleeping or waking. It’s such a relief to have (for the moment at least) solved such a long and ongoing problem that made me so unwell. My health is definitely improving because of proper sleep, as is my diet. All in all, I’m more relaxed and settled than I have been in a very long time. I think this shows in my appearance and general attitude: I’m more mellow and my mental health is much improved. It’s amazing how things can suddenly come together, isn’t it?
Since moving down, I’ve been snapping away with my iPhone camera when I’m out and about after work/at weekends. I keep forgetting to take my DSLR out and about with me…
Did I mention how great the food opportunities are here?
Expensive, but awesome. This is a typical Friday desk lunch for me: a fresh homestyle sausage roll using locally sourced pork…
I’ve got plenty more food talk to come, some knitting updates and I’ll also be updating with a diary series during my business trip to Hong Kong next month. For now, Sunday lunch & a ten pin bowling session is calling!
