Well, from the title of this blog it shows that I'm studying for my Shakespeare exam next week, but I want to talk about something other than my songs here. Basically I'm thinking about moving to London at the end of this year, after I graduate in June or September.
Why do I want to leave Belgium? My entire life I've been sure that I wasn't going to stay here, Belgium may be my native country, but I don't entirely feel at home here. I don't like the mentality of Belgium anymore, everyone is so narrow minded and is so keen on their privacy. I prefer a culture that is a little more open :), plus the political situation in Belgium is not going in a good direction according to me... But okay, the main reason is that I want change, I live in this small town in the country side and basically there's nothing much to do here. And moving to London would be huge, since the city is huge, and I feel that it takes forever to explore it! I think that is what I need, here in Belgium I know the country, there's nothing new to it anymore.
Why London? The fact that it's huge and 8 million people live there doesn't scare me that much, it seems to me there is so much to explore and discover and always something to do!
I'm not sure what work I could do there, I don't care if I work at a bar or as a receptionist, as long as I can find something in the beginning :). Because it's so expensive I just need a job! And then I still need a place to stay, I hope I can find a room in a house with other girls or guys with whom I get along!
My only concern is this: there are 8 million people, but I'm afraid I'll feel alone and it might be difficult to meet people, so that might be something that would hold me back.
