Only one more week..
Don't really see the point of this, but yeah. I guess it's fun ;)
I spent Christmas and New Year's Eve here in Manchester. On Christmas evening, me and Hani went out to dinner with some of the students. Afterwards, I met up with my friend Tom, who was travelling to Scotland with his friend Jeroen. The next day we had brunch together, before they continued their journey. I Skyped with my family, but it didn't work too well because there was a delay. Being outside around the Christmas Break was so weird - the usually crowded streets were now almost empty and there was no public transport. The week before and after the Christmas break, EC was pretty empty as well, because a lot of students took a holiday to go back to their home country for Christmas.
On New Year's Eve, Tom and Jeroen came back to Manchester and we went to a party with some of the students, at a club called Revolution. It was really good, but - no surprise since it was NYE - crazy expensive. The cloakroom, for example, cost 8 pounds! There was a fireworks show at Albert Square but it doesn't seem to be a thing here to set off fireworks yourself. I didn't see or hear anything on the streets. In the Netherlands, starting weeks before NYE you will hear bangs from fireworks all the time and the day after the streets are polluted by fireworks. Nothing to see here.
A week ago, we had a (late Christmas) staff dinner at Gusto and afterwards we went out for a few drinks. It was nice to get to know everyone a little better outside the workplace - even though I won't be here for much longer. Now, I have only one week left until the end of my internship. Five months seemed like a long time, but time flew by so fast! It's weird to think about how I'm going back to a life that is so different from my life here. No more working fulltime, back to stuDYING.. But it also means going back to my country, my family and my friends, and that is something to look forward to :)
See you soon!
