I have long been following the Weekend Coffee Share posts but never been able to participate because I used to work most Sundays. This is no longer the case now so here I am.
If we were having coffee, I would start by showing you the pictures of foggy Greenwich Park today. Good timing with Halloween celebrations as the fog seemed pretty thick last night already. I don’t know about you, but I find fog beautiful, the kind of bad weather I can not only put up with but also actively seek for its photogenic qualities and eerie atmosphere.
Back in the day, fog was inherent to London – dirty, suffocating fog that was due to such high levels of pollution it led to The Great Smog of ’52. I can imagine there was nothing beautiful or fascinating about fog then but look at it. Who doesn’t find a dim street lamp beautiful to look at?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you it has been a different kind of week. I have felt a lot more proactive and productive (there is just something powerful about a word starting with pro-). I have resumed my TEFL course and even gotten two shifts in Gatwick on Halloween which, actually, wasn’t so bad. I got to wear a witch’s hat with orange hair and enjoyed some of the most amazing costumes in both my humorous colleagues and brave passengers flying through.
I have been sending CVs pretty much every day and applied to jobs as far as Shanghai and Dubai as well as, of course, London. Hey, you never know, do you?
I have also devised a blogging schedule which I will do my best to stick to and have a dozen topics lined up so… stay tuned!
