If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, which would these be?
London and Tuscany, fo’sure. I’ve never been to Florence but – and this will sound exceptionally stupid – I have played enough Assassin’s Creed on the PlayStation for me to fall head over heels for central Italy. In terms of London, it’s where I study, and although most of the people I’ve met are leeches sucking the compassion out of my daily life, the place itself is beautiful and I am in love.
I was discussing our respective Universities with a friend last night. We both felt that where we ended up studying, were the places we were meant to be. It’s such a good feeling of contentment to know you’re in the right place. Somewhere you’re comfortable residing in and you won’t tire of easily. A kind of place that, if you’re away from, will serenade you with its ordinary streets and people. Where upon your every return, you feel welcomed and a restlessness within you disappears. Even when faced with mounting piles of lab reports and tutorial coursework, to know you’re in the right place is a relief among stresses.
