I have done it. I have finally got my own room and my own space!
A cute little flat down in East Putney. It is so gorgeous. A tad expensive but then again the location is fantastic and the house is gorgeous. I move in on March 1st. Yay! No more hostel. I'm sharing with one Aussie girl and one Austrian guy who both seem lovely.
Haha, I have a funny story about one of the people in my dorm room... Kelly and I went to Chinese New Year yesterday and as we were heading towards Oxford Circus Station, we saw one of the girls in our dorm room screaming her lungs out, preaching something (we don't know what she was saying, it was incomprehensible). We think she was saying something about Jesus - but we weren't sure. We didn't want to go up to her cos she had a big cane on her arm and we thought she might smack us with it. So, we just went our own way. Later that night, I saw her at the hostel and she was all smiles and I was too scared to ask her what she was doing at Oxford Circus.
The joys of hostels - drug dealers, preachers ... what else can you ask for for £85 a week!
