So I'm back in London and at Trev's now. Had a bit of a manic journey to get here! I went out for my last night in Berlin, but since I had to leave at 7am to get to airport and I needed to do about an hour of packing/last minute flat tidying beforehand, I had planned to get home by 2am on Friday night and get four hours sleep. Well... obviously, it got to 2am and I was enjoying myself, so I decided it was a good idea to just not sleep, stay out late and then go home, pack, and head to the airport. Which I did, and Mira came with me and helped (and didn't sleep either). I planned to then sleep on the plane and the train instead, and the plane bit worked, but the trains at the airport in Luton were all either delayed or cancelled, which meant that they were impossible to get on. When I did finally get on one, it was so packed I spent the whole journey stood up and pressed into the wall... eergh. But still, I made it in one piece in the end, even if I did pretty much go 30 hours without sleep!
I'm feeling a bit sad now though, because although I obviously want to be in London and with Trev and stuff, Mira is going to be in Berlin for the next three weeks and then going back to Holland, and she's not coming back for next semester, so my coffee buddy/best friend in Berlin is gone! I felt really bad at the airport, half not wanting to go back to London :( I guess it'll be alright, but it's a bit crap to make such good friends with someone and know that you're probably not going to be living in the same place as them for a long long time. Oh well, I guess it means I'll have to make a trip to the Netherlands next semester...
On a lighter note, I got the best chat up line ever on Friday night:
Czech guy at the bar: Have you counted the beads on your necklace? [I was wearing a long string of beads]
Me: No, why?
Czech guy: Well, where I come from, that's bad luck not to!
Me: Well, where I come from, it's bad luck for a black cat to cross your path, but I live with a black cat so I guess I'm used to flirting with bad luck!
Just thought it was a pretty strange way to start a conversation, so he deserved a bit of piss-taking, heh!
