Yeah, I know, surprise! As I’m writing this, it’s just past 10pm and I’m sitting on a Southern train to Brighton from East Croydon. I spent the last two weeks in Poland, mostly chilling at home, buying books, drinking coffee with various people in various places, and marvelling at how brown, grey, and yet still very intense everything looked back in Torun.
Warsaw, where I arrived on Friday, was a different story – way more sunny, and not as vivid brown, mostly because I was mostly in the very urbanised, concretey parts of Warsaw while I was there – until today. I got to see all of my family, some friends, and eat a lot of Polish food which should be enough to last me several months! Haha.
This time I haven’t done anything in the area of rounding up a year, reflecting, making resolutions, etc. etc. Maybe I’m getting old, I just turned 25 about a week ago (I had an amazing birthday cake!! made by my Mum, see photo below – I did the decorations on top, it was inspired by Taylor Swift’s album Midnights which I love) and now I can technically say I’m in the second half of my twenties which almost makes it late twenties which is insane. Anyway, here’s to me turning officially more adulty every year.
Hope you had a good time wherever you were and whatever you were doing in the last few weeks, and let’s make this January a good one x
PS I also took some photos in Poland, I may upload some to the blog later, keep an eye out.
