Hi guys! Sorry it's been so long but busy times.
As a few of you know, my placement year studying abroad has now started and on Friday I arrived here in Freiburg, Germany. So far, I've basically been continuously stressed out as there have been so many things to organise. My mum flew over with me but she left to go back to England yesterday, and I've been feeling pretty bummed out about the whole thing.
Luckily, there were some people to help me with some of the organisation things today at an orientation session, so I am now registered as a resident, have a German bank account and have sorted out health insurance. I also met a couple of Irish girls who are really nice and we have loads of things in common. Thank God for that! Who would have thought that the second and third people I properly spoke to in Germany would be Tumblr people and into Superwholock and anime and everything...
So basically, I wouldn't say I'm feeling optimistic about it all but perhaps it's a bit less doom and gloom.
Unfortunately though, I might be on something of a hiatus, submission-wise, for a while, as there wasn't room in my suitcase to bring any art supplies. But I'll see what I can manage
