Back as a student again

The first thing I've noticed is that I can't take the weekend off anymore.

Well, I can, if I don't go out during the week and stay home to dutifully finish all my readings. But where would be the fun in that?

I'm still trying to find the right pace, somewhere between leafing painstakingly through Deleuze and Guattari, cooking Jamie Oliver's 20 Minute Meals (that title really needs a hyphen in it), commuting 45 minutes to school, moseying around markets on the weekend to try (and buy) cheese whose names I can't remember, and meeting friends at the pub.

(I do not have a "local" pub. I just go wherever my friends suggest. Not very British, I know.)

I thought I would get some personal research and writing projects done during this year of being a student, but I'm not sure where I can find time and headspace for them at the moment. Right now I feel like I've spent five weeks in London and have nothing writerly to show for it. (Shut up, I know I moved countries and everything.)

If anyone has any suggestions about what I should go foraging for in the British Library holdings (or at any other UK library), let me know!

My friend runs the pub, The Market Porter. I went by the last time I was in London, but didn't have a drink there. Met him somewhere else as he was on a break. It does seem like a nice place to go to though. You should check it out.

Good to know that things are great for you though. :) I can't wait to go off to study too!

Ah, just mapped it - it's right near Borough Market. I was in the area over the weekend, but it was a bit early for a pint then. ;) Will check it out the next time I'm at the market.
