Starting into week 3.

Maybe things are starting to fall into place...I am not sure. I do know that I am feeling better. I miss my family and friends still but am feeling more like how I felt in Rome. Missing them in the back of my mind but still having an amazing time in each moment. I think it is partly because I have had a full, free weekend here!

Despite the fact that everyone is in a horrible rush during the week, it seems like on the weekends more people are relaxed and friendly...not everyone but most. Hahaha. 

My favourite places have been Regents Park and Borough Markets. Everything seems smaller and cozier there...just how I like it. 

It has just been weird getting to know the real London. It is how I expected but I am on the wrong side. It doesn't mesh with my personality as I thought it would and that is taking a lot of adjusting for me. I am beginning to think/realize (more time here in London may change this) that I am destined to live in a smaller city in England rather than London. I know that is shocking because I have been obsessing over London for as long as I can remember...but there is it, the unexpected truth. 

Life is throwing me a curve ball. 

But honestly what I have been gathering based on the people I work with and teachers at school that most people who work in London do not live in London. Most of the women in my office have told me that their commute is 1 1/2 hours to and from each day on bus and train. That sounds ridiculous but it is typical here. 

So maybe I will end up doing that or I will end up in Hawaii or Seattle or Italy...who knows? What I do know is that everything isn't always what it seems and that you just have to keep moving forward.
