So here are 12 things i've learned while living here for a full year:
The crazy amout you feel in the empty walls when you move in for the first time is insane! I felt like i was the only human left in this world and it kinda was like zombie apocalypse because while i didnt had a job and was waking up at normal 10am people were already out and about and not even a soul was on the street.
2. NON STOP.
People just don't know how to realx in this city 100%, everyone is always rushing everywhere.
Feels like no one ever walks but runs all the time! Believe me it's tiring!
3. WORK WORK WORK OR DIE!
When you ask someone to ho out the first thing they say is "I'm working tomorrow all day, sorry!" and yeah believe me, if you have a day/night off with your buddies you're damn lucky!
4. RENT IS YOUR LIFE.
Work, pay rent, pay bills, get wasted, Work.
Literally that is what i actually have done during the entire year, work to be able to pay my bills, once that is done i get pissed and celebrate before putting my ass up to work another month non stop. Crap life i gotta say dear people.
5. WTF IS A DAY OFF?
Work 70hours a week and then give me an answer... 👍
6. SUNNY DAYS!
Once there is sun and it's warmish expect everyone in flipflops, tank tops and sit bake in the park while you walk fully dressed and still shaking because you are used to 20+ weather and not 10+ and flipflops.
7. ALWAYS MOVING.
Don't expect settle down in the first place, there is gonna be something that you gotta take your shit and run! I didn't want but had to move non stop, its exhausting bug you'll get used to get rid of clothes and not having your own furniture really quickly.
8. GOING CENTRAL? NAH...
If you manage to find a cheap place(BAHAHAHAH...sorry) in central then you may just have to deal with that on daily basis but if you are like me and just moved to somewhere around then you know how you don't feel it going to far to go out, its takes tooooo long, its expensive and there is a chance if you stay to up to 1am you gotta go back on bus and thats Loooooong again. So why not just staying local, get pissed and go to bed to wake up for work next day. Good idea huh?
9. BREAK THEM BONES!!! Muahahahah
No mattet how careful you are, this ia the citu where you fill goddamn break a bone and belive me when i say this it's because i not only experienced breaking my ankle but because there is at least 20people doing that day to day. Get ready for that!
10. OH DREAMS!
When someone comes to London is usually to follow their dreams, believe me to be able to do that you either need a classification where you will gain money in a week for an entire month or you just gotta live with 10 people in one place to be able to afford to follow your dreams.
My experience: Came here for modelling and being a make-up artist, but the only thing i've done was working non stop as a bartender and die in bed every night!
11. TUBE RULES? YEAH MAN!
Follow them and get that book out of your bag becausr there is no signal for chatting with anyone, and don't try making friends in there, people just think you are crazy.
12. MENTAL ALCOHOL PRICES!
Seriously, £5 for a pint in Central while it's £2 in the South England or somwhere North, wtf im doung in London exactly? Kill me.
Well this is kinda something for you, i have more but i dont wanna ruin your journey here ✌️
