i’ve been back from finland less than three weeks. i’m still half on holiday and building a tan; work has started up again after the summer holidays, but my thesis is still on the backburner.
i’m reading a lot. writing, not so much.
i have this problem where i want to run away when there’s something that’s not going too well. i’ll be looking up flights and destinations and bike guides and hostels and taxes and job portals abroad. i dream of dropping everything and just taking off.
i don’t do it. i can’t do it – i need to bite the bullet and get through whatever is bothering me. so that’s what i do, every time. i get over it, through it, past it.
but i buy vacations. i’m going to cambridge for a weekend in october, because when i booked that trip i was having serious issues with my thesis and i wanted to run away from it. i also only paid £40 for the flights and trains combined, so there’s that.
currently i’m wondering if i could buy a hotel in iceland and just go there and run it.
i’m also wondering whether i can take next week off work (not possible) and just go to berlin. on a bicycle. take a week or ten days and cycle down there. then back.
i want to buy a vacation for december, but i’m broke and i’ll be graduating from uni in january. it’d be irresponsible. stupid.
in the meantime…think i’ll just play tourist in and around copenhagen.
