Today is all about traveling, I’m leaving London and going back home. I’m tired, and cold and probably a day away from catching some bug. But here are some thoughts about the weekend and the week ahead.
I was really ready for a long weekend away. I’ve been under so much stress for the past months. Writing, publishing, other related stuff. I’ve had nights where I wondered if this was even worth it anymore. If I should just quit and work some brain-dead job that will at least give me a stable monthly income. But knowing our local economy, even that wouldn’t be stable. I’m a university graduate with a masters degree and I wouldn’t be able to find a better paying job in my field…
So, back to the trip. I’ve walked waaaay too much. I’ve seen London Tower, London Bridge, South Bank, Camden, Primrose Hill, Regent’s Park, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Saint James’s Park, first three on Friday, second three on Saturday and final three on Sunday. Basically left around eleven each morning and came back to the hotel between three and four, totally exhausted. Next time I really need to do better time-management.
I was really lucky though, because even though it was cold, it’s been dry all weekend. So I was able to go everywhere I wanted.
Going forward, I need to make a plan for what I’m going to do. This month is going to be crazy busy and this isn’t my only trip. I’ve got books to write, books to publish and even more plans to make for next year. All fun!
