i'm coming home, on a jet plane  
So, I was in Turkey for a while there, yeah? Now I am in Gatwick and I haven't slept for approximately 19,993424832942 hours and my flight gate doesn't even OPEN for another two hours. SO HERE WE ARE.

Some things happened on my holidays:

I went out with no results or job, but I'm coming back with an honours degree and a job I wanted, so yay for that! Only, everyone has been scaring me with solemn tales of how terribly, horrendously, stupendously difficult it is to get veins in renal patients. Guess which service I'm starting on? (Renal's actually one I really, really wanted ... just not FIRST.)

I pierced my nose! My mother doesn't know yet, but everyone else I know plus the entire internet does. If you never hear from me again, it's because she's killed me dead.

I rode a camel! Otherwise my holiday was very lazy, a lot of reading and catnapping and water-sliding. I did not enjoy nightclubbing in Turkey, so fortunately I was only prevailed upon to do it once. I was pretty horrified by the grinding poverty of the country in which we lived on a little sandpile of ridiculous luxury (three course four star meals for the equivalent of fifteen euro, etc). I don't think I'll be going back.

I did, however, get a proposal of marriage. I could be the second wife of a Turkish jeweller AS WE SPEAK. So there.

Oh boy, I'm so behind on everything lj-related. And my laptop, which I stepped on, resulting in a broken screen, will take six weeks to repair due to the stupid ash cloud. I'll practically be WORKING by then. Whatever shall I dooooooooo? (Aside from use a pen and paper, I mean. And watch where I put my feet...)

HELLO YOU HI. I have missed you around these parts! Congratulations on the results!!! and the job! ♥

p.s. As for Turkey -- yeah, I get how that goes. :/ Cambodia was a pretty similar experience.

/comment is all over the place, etc.

It's kind of terrible and weird; I'm looking forward to graduation, but right after that I START WORK. Ahhhhhhhhhh.

I kind of feel less bad about the exorbitant prices I pay for stuff at home, now. At least if I stay in a swanky hotel here, people aren't living at subsistence level beside the gate. :/
