All Quiet on the Western Front

It’s been a while, wonderful people of the internet. I’m guessing some of you might be wondering what happened to me. In truth, everything and nothing, (although that might sound a bit bizarre to the majority of people).

A month ago my invasion of Sweden ended. I returned to the UK, having completed a couple of courses at the University of Gothenburg as well as having made more friends than I could have imagined. My final days in Sweden were wonderful: I met up with all of my various groups of friends and had meals and BBQs and laughed and joked. A great many signed my Sweden Journal – A book which contains memories very much in the vein of this blog, although it has spaces saved for various events which haven’t been detailed online.

Why did I return to the UK, you ask? It was a practical decision really: My funds were beginning to dwindle and I no longer had any courses at the University with which to justify staying in Sweden. At times I had wanted to leave, and then at others I wished dearly that I could stay. There are a lot of people I’m going to miss – people I DO miss, and hopefully, I’ll be back again some day.

What am I doing in the UK? Well, actually, I’ve moved back to the town I lived in in Berkshire before I moved to Sweden. It’s not the best part of town ( I’ll be honest) but my house is alright. Come September I start a new job in a school, which will be great. It’s different from what I did before, and in honesty I’m kind of nervous about it, but at the same time I think I’m probably going to love it!

Am I just abandoning my steampunks? Definitely not. I hope to be involved in everything that is going on – I just won’t be able to go to their next party in January as it’s during term time and I can’t justify a day off then. As it is Asylum is going to be… interesting.


At any rate: I’m back in the UK, I have sausages, and I’m plotting the future. This probably marks pretty much the end of this blog, unless/until I try to reattempt another ‘invasion’ of Sweden. I’ll be around on the internet, probably invading other corners and/or starting other blogs. I’m quite active on Tumblr, but I like to keep my tumblr page rather under wraps, so don’t be offended if I don’t reveal my tumblr identity to you!

Au revoir
