Armed with just an iPhone at that time, I did what any first timer in London would do, snap pics ’til my phone lost its battery. It’s overwhelming to finally see all these famous landmarks that I used to only have the privilege of reading from a magazine or website back home. Here I am now, actually able to be so close and breathe the same air it does.
But like the picture, life just never got pretty for me. Home sickness took its toll, hate for my profession got to an all time high, and the city itself lost its’ spark. I just wanted to go home, but I knew it wasn’t possible. I needed this opportunity and I just had to suck it up.
It’s amazing how you could dislike something so wonderful. I have a love-hate relationship with this place. After 1 year of living in it, I wanted to rekindle our relationship and try to find that spark once more.
