I’m listening to Alanis for the first time in a looong time. It always weirds me out how she gets into my head. Still. Susanna talked me into going to see Matchbox Twenty in May and Alanis is, strangely enough, their warm up act on the American tour. I don’t think she’ll come to Europe but I’ll keep my fingers crossed just in case! Would be very cool indeed…
So. The first week at my new job is behind me. It was all right. Surprisingly I didn’t find the waking up etc. side of things that difficult. I’ve had some trouble adjusting my mind in other ways though. It feels like I’m moving sideways instead of forward and I somehow need to come to terms with that. The job feels so much like my previous one that it’s spooky. In a way it’s really easy to slip back into the ‘normal’ rhythm and there’s no anxiety about not being able to do something. On the other hand I feel a bit… lost. With where my life is going I suppose. Eh. I dunno.
Did get my Colin-wall up. 😛 (Colin-wall at my previous office.)
There you can also see the gorgeous view from my window. The barbed wire is especially delightful, makes you sort of feel like you ought to be working on an escape plan. 😀 It’s definitely taking some getting used to being south of the river. I guess I got a bit spoiled working right at the heart of the West End for so many years. On the upside, at least I won’t be spending all my pay cheques on Oxford Street on my lunch breaks!
There are some nice things around though, like Borough Market on Thursdays and Fridays. Lovely (and some pretty strange) stuff in there.
