New Job!

(photos by this is naive)

Exciting news! After a bit of a break after doing that little thing called a master's course, i'm back in the work force. This time it's in London, and as ever, i've been hired to help do tedious organization, except in a cupcake shop! And not just any cupcake shop. It's the cutest cupcake shop in town, and run by the loveliest owner. Yay! Cupcakes for everyone!

It makes talking to your grandparents across the ocean possible.

So Many Things.

Well, suffice it to say the last two weeks have been crazy, and that's the excuse i'll give for a blogging hiatus. When you have family visiting, a graduation from a master's program and a trip to france and spain, somehow these sorts of things happen. Craziness aside, we're back! Here i am! Sunkissed and ready for ... life? This blog has chronicled every aspect of life and now we're in the first phase ever where i'm not sure what comes next. In the next months it'll be finding a job, hopefully getting a new visa and moving apartments. Not too shabby. For now, deep breaths.

France and Spain, the lands of roundabouts.

Yesterday i got back from a trip to the catalan regions of France and Spain. We had to fly into a small airport that looked like it hadn't been touched since the 70s, then drive along scary coastal roads without barriers to a hotel in the middle of Argeles and Collioure, two towns that couldn't be any more different from each other. One was a beachside town that had more tourist traps and kebab shops than i've ever seen crammed into one place, think the jersey shore on crack... and filled with french people. The other, Collioure, has been standing since the 600s when King Wamba of the Visigoths lived there. It's filled with windy streets and ice cream on every corner. Much more my speed. Every day was filled with sunshine and delicious food, and now after that, i'm refreshed and back to reality.
