So I’m sitting here in my room in London (if you count Leytonstone as such), nothing’s packed and I have tears in my eyes.
This day marks the end of a chapter in my life, a real good chapter with lots of favourite passages.
Not only does it end the chapter London actually, it marks the end of my ERASMUS period and the international life that I’ve been leading over the last 12 months.
I want to hereby thank all the people that made this experience so unique and inspiring to me, people that helped me and people that entertained me.
Thanks to Tobias, my brother, for letting me sleep on your floor. It was hopefully the most inconvenient way of living, having to hide from the mean Polish woman and not being able to use a kitchen – but it enabled me to start my life here and get on my own feet.
Cheers Mark, my brother from another mother. You are just great and you know it.
Thank you, Mel who let me sleep at her place when the Polish woman found out about me and I got kicked out.
And pineapply love to Stanley, who taught me a lot about British culture (Essex girl jokes).
A big shout also to my Zebrano’s people, I loved socializing with so many of you so superfast. And the free drinks were an extra bonus.
Goodbye, London. What I’ll miss the most in 7 Haikus
Friends of the Earth
Goodbye, FoE, my job,
I loved press office and helping
And always got tea.
Small alley and traffic lights
Always discovering more
Small café or thrift store
See you, Camden Town,
I love shopping and the food
Got no money left.
Tottenham Court Road
La’er, Tottenham Court Road,
Google house and Denmark Street.
A mixture of glee.
The river and bridges
Sky by day, bright night,
When walking over the Thames
My little heart is pleased.
We were not always
In the best of harmony
Tube I’ll even miss thee.
From here, other town,
Weird country or continent
I hope we stay friends.
That’s it. The sky outside turned black. Thank you for everything, London. You taught me a lot.
And it won’t be long – I promise. I’ll keep my Oyster.
Hope you enjoyed, I’ll go and eat an unreasonable amount of chocolate now.
