OK, so I promised you major life updates in the last post and here they finally are! The last few weeks have been especially hectic and life-changing, both for good and bad reasons, but in keeping with the tone of this blog I will stick unashamedly with the positive. So first of all: I’m writing this from the living room of my new flat Have moved in with the super-lovely Cat from work, with Josh joining us in about a month’s time… it’s all very exciting and we’re going to have so much fun together. So, yay! (Talking of work: I also have a new job to do from Monday… double yay.)
One more thing. Last week I turned 23. This is, of course, scarily and frighteningly old… but mollified by a little by getting a Kindle. Now, I’m quite sensitive to the pros and cons of paper books versus their electronic upstarts, and I’m sure I’m going to be using both for a long time to come. But a Kindle has one glorious property which makes it revelatory to me: I can read it on the Tube. I have never been able to do this. Reading books on the Tube has always given me a headache in minutes, even though phones \ newspapers were fine. But having a Kindle on a commute is like learning to read for a second time, and I don’t ever want to go back.
