Next week, I'm moving in with my friend Jess, who is allowing me to live with her, rent-free, until the move. This is going to save me piles of cash, and, I feel, improve my living situation, even though Jessica has a hubby and two kids.
While this might sound strange, anything is a step up from Queen Hick, her ghetto thug Prince Regent, and the dog(s). Also, I won't have to worry about mice, giant roaches, or haunted happenings. Hopefully.
I also booked my plane ticket! (yay!) So, I will officially be leaving on July 21st, which is Monday, at around 5 in the afternoon. I have a few hours layover in Washington DC, and then a straight shot to London.
I wasn't able to get my Prior Entry Clearance, unfortunately, so if I'm going to see any of Europe for my first six months in London, I'll need to do it before September 30th. This is kind of a drag, but it's hard to be bummed about specifics when I'm moving to London. Plus, I'll be able to travel within the UK at my leisure, and there's more than enough there to keep me occupied for six months.
So, for now, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for potential job and flat postings that I can reserve ahead of time (though I have a feeling that won't be an option until much closer to my move date), and am trying to make the most out of what time I have left at my job, which I've definitely come to love :)
