Studying in London has really helped me figure out what I want out of life. It's been very self-reflective. A different museum everyday, new cafes, new people, (but I still hate the taste of beer, even Europe couldn't knock that out of me), but most of all, new experiences.
I've been really focusing on my photography, I started a new project and am still piecing it together. It's about the beauty in the things many people would deem gritty and ugly. I've taken influence by Mapplethorpe, Pollock, Francis Bacon, and Picasso. I love that innocent spooky thing they have going on.
I didn't bring my skateboard to London because I assumed the city would be to busy to easily and safely skate in. I was wrong. I wish I had it with me everyday (it would make my walking commute of 3.5 miles each way a whole lot easier). But I won't complain, the weather here is so lovely I could walk 15 miles and not notice the hours and hours I've been at it.
I've made a lovely friend here. I began this trip as an experimental trip to test my individuality and able-ness to be alone, yet something even better happened, I met someone I've become inseparable with.
(If you're reading this Bekah, yes this is the part I tell you I'm in love with you).
Last Saturday I had a date with this doll at The Breakfast Club in Soho. I would absolutely recommend the place as the retro atmosphere and friendly service made the hefty wait worth it. Afterwards we trotted down to Southbank to watch the skaters do what they do best. There is word they might tear down this historical monument will its walls splattered with some of the most famous and brilliant graffiti artists of our time. We can't let them take it away.
More to come soon!
