After 4 months...

...I wonder if any of my friends are still talking to me?

The only thing that keeps going through my mind right now is this:

Finish the PhD, pack your bags, and then head off and wander about for as long as you want to.

I've often wondered where my nomadic personality comes from, although a quick glance at my family tree kind of gives me a few hints - but I also want to put to bed the common misconception that those of us who are like that are running away from something. Not. True. It's honestly that I love seeing new places, meeting new people, experiencing everything I possibly can out of this life, and actually facing some pretty big fears along the way. It's how I discover what I'm really like as a character - good and bad sides. In many ways it would be a heck of a lot easier for me to settle down here and not venture out of a safe little job (read dull), but I just cannot bring myself to do that and maybe I never will.

I'll always come home because I love London far too much - just won't hang about here long before I'll need to move on again.
