London So Far: A Photo Compendium


First post in 2018! Happy New Year!

Hello, earthlings! I'm really glad to announce that yeah, I'm here, alive and happier than ever. Resettling myself in a new situation was quite a difficult task one or two weeks ago, but as I slowly adapting to the environment, it's getting much much better than I ever imagined before (and I hope that soon I'll be calling London as my next "comfort zone"? Amen for that!).

People often asked me why I decide to move all the way before Christmas and New Year, while the course will not start until the second week of January. Well, the reasons were pretty much classic: one, I want to witness winter festivities (talk about Christmas at a country that actually have winter in their seasons!). Two, I want to adapt in a slower pace; maybe having some sessions of getting-to-know the city (talk about visiting some places that were actually in my bucket list back then on my last visit last summer, hehehe). Without further ado, here are bits and bobs of things that I did while settling myself in London before the semester starts to get busier (with the upcoming projects and assignments that I can't predict just yet). 

Starting New

One fine day, it will be your turn. You will leave friends, lovers, and possibilities for the chance to roam the world and make deeper connections. You will defy your fear of change, hold your head high and do what you once thought was unthinkable: walk away. And it will be scary. At first. But what I hope you'll find in the end is that in leaving, you don't just find love, adventure, or freedom. More than that, you find you.
