Claire x Nikki Mash Up
Well April was a world wind! I moved to London, got into a terrible flat, started a new job and got lost many times. London is a big city and I forgot about the big bad chill that is the end of winter. It’s getting warmer though and I’ve bought a portable heater (blessed heat! I have my room like a sauna right now.) and I’m having fun. It’s a very different life from what I’m used to and it’s a tad lonely at times (I know all of 3 people and I feel like I might be making them a bit sick of me) but I truck on. I’m not complaining just stating a fact: it isn’t peachy but I’m grateful for the opportunity. I will say one thing, I’ve been diagnosed with GAD and this move has caused a bit of a flare up, my social anxiety has become a bit of a bother but there is no better time to fight on and conquer this! Well, if not conquer, at least learn to cope and control. Right?
I’m a bit sluggish today though because I went to a Spanish festival yesterday and shared a pitcher of Sangria and I very much regret that now. The headache, ugh.

TV: If y’all don’t watch Daredevil I will very disappointed in you! Plus, I’d just like to thank Amber for getting me totally obsessed with The 100- it’s a really good show, like unbelievable. Plus the fandom is rich there and I love a strong fandom, it makes things so much more fun.
(This is Claire doing Nikki’s session because I was a bum and forgot to tell her about this post in advance).
Massive hugs to Nikki for holding down the blog this month when I disappeared, I LOVE YOU NIKKI!
