It’s happened. It’s finally happened! We got an apartment, our very own, where we can justify buying food and walk around in our undies and go to the toilet with the door open! For two whole weeks! Woo hoo! Two weeks may not sound long but that’s the longest I’ve been in one place for 3 months, I can actually unpack!
Getting here was a pain though, we booked tickets on the train from London paid like £40 (transport around the UK is crazy expensive) and couldn’t get seats, so were sitting on the floor in the little restaurant carriage and then the train is delayed and Brandon had a job interview and was late to that so I had to sit around waiting and then it was another train and a longer than expected walk to the apartment and… Nah that was it, but it was sorta annoying. Brandon got the job (5 week contract) though so that was good.
Naturally, first night we are like ‘fuck yes let’s sit around semi naked, eating ice cream and watching TV’ so that’s what we did (except that there is no TV, so it was DVDs on my tiny DVD player. The idea was there) and then as everyone should do when they have two whole weeks not living in our suitcases we went SHOPPING! Which was so stupid cause we still eventually have to get it all in our cases, but I needed something presentable to wear for job interviews and whatever. So that took an entire day.
The next entire day I sat in an Internet cafe applying for jobs, which cost me 25£ to use the net and print off 10 resumes so that was a really good blow to the old budget.
And the day after that I spent the whole day walking around handing out resumes.
So we have really immersed ourselves in Edinburgh culture and seen heaps yeah?
Okay no but it is really pretty. More like a big country town than a city (in the same way Hobart is a city) and really old and untouched by modern sky scrapers and stuff so it’s really cool just walking around and stuff.
