So life is pretty sweet right now, I'm loving the whole late start work thing as I've always been one for sleeping in. I did a free pour course last week so I can now successfully pour alcohol properly. I've done my Collins, Long Islands, and Rum tests (which means I've memorized exactly the measurements and how to make these drinks) so I can start bar tending now, which is exciting.
The world of bartending is such a weird place. I almost liken it to the world of being a rock star, as in everyone loves you. I am pouring you your alcohol, so I am amazing, I am providing you with the courage/stupidity/daring to do whatever/whoever/pass out, and so i'm great. I'm serious, if you are pouring people their alcohol suddenly you are the most attractive, most unattainable thing. I'm not just talking about me here, I've seen some pretty average looking bartenders, but while they're on the bar, girls love them. I don't get it!!
I went and took photos of my new living space yesterday.... enjoy.
This is our room, England is werid and doesn't really have proper 'share' properties. they have bed-sits... which means you get the room and the kitchen to share, and there is no living room. That's ok with me, I have my computer and wii in here, I'm happy!
No one likes picking up the mail in our house, and the doors always look like this
Our place is the end one, our room is the top floor you can see
It goes on and on forever like this
Even around the corner more and more bedsits. It's like someone went crazy with Control + V
walking to the store, I look like I've aged 10 years I blame it on the sun.
At the end of my block is the town, Also trusty signage to get to my local underground and overground stations.
I'm not sure which "area" of London I live in... I think it's predominantly Turkish? Or predominately people that can't spell properly
I have to walk buy this everyday.. I hope someday soon someone buys it... because it's really beginning to scare me.
more local transport signs!
The daunting London transportation map... I wish our public transport was as complex as this.
How come every-time I come around the London, London Bridge bus is going down?
No Joke, McDonalds, WALK THOUGH.... help us all.
I felt I should take a picture of this, I think the people in the car were not very impressed.
No one rides bikes in England.
Maybe it's because of the terrifying barbed wire they have?
Let that be a waring to you.
