One thing which I have realised about my life in London is that I am not involved in anything…I go from uni, to home, back to uni, home, maybe the shops, a visit to the library, and that’s it! I am used to having so much to do besides home and school, that I was starting to find London a bit unappealing, and unenthusiastic. My fault, I know – I need to get to know more people.
So I decided over the weekend to actually do something about it! I have been saying this for ages, but never got round to it. But now I have employed an honorary ass-kicker to make me go to the places I want to go (thanks Michael ;)), so that I don’t end up bailing out at the last minute, for some stupid excuse, or cos I am just plain lazy!
What activities will I do? Well, tonight there is the weekly meeting for young adults at the parish church. I was always invovled in some way in some youth group, so I thought that would be a good place to meet people, in a setting I have been involved before. Also, tomorrow there is a London bloggers meetup which Michael told me about rhis morning…this morning there wasn’t space for me, but people dropped out, so I am onto the yes list, and off the waiting list. Then, on Saturday, I have tickets for the Eurovision – your country needs you screening (unfortunately I only have one ticket for this, but I still want to make myself go!) (I also have tickets for Britain’s Got Talent for Friday, but I have lectures at that time, so oh well, cannot go!)
Really hope I get to go to these places, and to meet new people, to make my life here more enjoyable and happy. It has been nice so far, but I am sure it can be so much better if I actually know people form the area, and have people to meet up with.
Hope you help Michael out in his job as ass-kicker to get me to these things!
