Well as this publishes I will be on a train headed to Edinburgh, where I will join a Skye High tour on Monday! Surprise! Ha. After realizing that nothing would be set in stone for this coming week work wise, I decided to be a bit impulsive and join the tour that I talked about in my 2015 bucket list post! I am so excited to finally be getting to see the Isle of Skye and I can’t wait to share it with you when I return 🙂
So week three. I hit burn out. After my lovely day trip to Bath, I was exhausted. I assumed it was just from the day there, so I took Sunday to be lazy but then I still felt just as exhausted and that theme continued throughout the week. I tried to get myself motivated by visiting the Natural Museum of History, walking in Hyde Park (finally found the Peter Pan statue!), more Oxford Street window shopping etc but really by the end of Wednesday, I just resigned myself to defeat. With all the excitement and emotions from moving, settling in, and still wanting to see as much as possible, I burnt out quickly. BUT that is ok. I have time, and I may as well take care of myself.
So the majority of this week was marked by sleeping in, lazing around, reading, watching Netflix and just regaining my energy for my Scotland tour. As well, I did have some more meetings with recruiters and definately some positive outlooks on the job front, if not anything concrete yet but staying positive and on the plus side, I get to go to the Isle of Skye! (Not excited at all…)
A few notable moments of the week. I got asked directions by a tourist! It must have been the blazer and dress I was wearing for my interview because I actually had no idea where I was. I woke up to a giant spider on my curtain the other morning, after seeing English house spiders I will NEVER be scared of Canadian ones, enough said. I visited Harrods for the first time, and will have to go back when I feel somewhat more posh. I did purchase some lovely office attire clothing from New Look and comfy clothing from Primark for such a cheap price, I can hardly believe it. I started to incorporate excercise in the form of running and long walks into my regime. Lastly, I also got to visit a cafe that I have been wanting to for quite a long time. Lavish Habit in Balham. Go there!
I can’t think of much else to say really. At some point, the week recaps will probaly turn into monthly ones as I imagine my weeks will become a bit mundae. 😛 But maybe not. Maybe I will become a duchess, or get a job with MI6!
To end all I can say is that I am so very glad I made this decision, despite missing my loved ones like crazy, there is no where else I would rather be. Even if when sometimes if I think about it for too long, I scare the pants out of myself, and I finally realize why people kept telling me I was so “brave” for doing this. But then I think of how much I have already seen and got to enjoy and how at peace I feel, then I breathe, and remember that I got this.
