Will you let me romantisize?

I'm all moved in to my new room, and it feels sooo good! However, this Monday I had my first emotional breakdown (I really thought I would have one sooner). I just kind of panicked a bit about money. Firstly, I realised that when I had calculated my budget, I completely forgot to take into account that I'll have to pay taxes. So a lot of money that I thought I would have disappeared there. On top of that it turns out I'm actually going to pay a bit more for the room than I originally thought, but I won't bore you with the details of how that happened.

So I called my mum, because she's sort of an expert in managing money and she thought that I should be fine, so I'm all calmed down now. It'll be quite a tight budget, but I'll manage. I'm actually kind of up for the challenge, scraping by on almost minimum wage in a metropolitan city. I'm romantisizing, I know, I do that with most things in life. I'm a hopeless romantic and I fall easily for people and places and just things in general. I have already started to fall in love with my neighbourhood as well, even if I've only really seen the road between the tube station and my house.

I'm doing better at work too, sort of starting to put the bits and pieces together. One of the guys actually said yesterday that I was an amazing worker, because it was quite busy and we were one person short, so I was pretty much doing juices all by myself. That actually made me really happy, because most of the time I feel like I'm not doing the best job haha.

And tomorrow I'm freeee! Not really sure what I'll do, looks like I'm seeing a friend from Sweden who is here at the moment.

I haven't taken a lot of pictures of the room or house yet, but here's one of my cute little street.

A nice quote from the one and only Oscar Wilde at the tube station.

A little corner of my room. Absolutely love the window just by the bed!

Talk to you guys later!
