It’s been a bit of a mad few weeks! It’s been no secret that I was unhappy in Leeds pretty much as soon as I arrived but, sometimes you do stupid things to stay with someone. When the relationship ended I wanted to leave but I didn’t expect it to happen so quickly (but I hoped it would!) I’d been working on getting down to London for a couple of months and thankfully a job came up in my company’s Southern office. It’s a bigger role as a personal assistant, nice and challenging.
I’ve secured a decent place to live in North London, only moved in yesterday. My first day at work today was fun, meeting people you’ve only ever spoken to on the phone was interesting. They all seem so nice, I’m trying to reign in my personal weirdness but worried it’s not working…
I can’t wait to forge new friendships here and rekindle ones with people that have moved here already. I can hopefully see as much live comedy as I like and get back into gig photography again…
I’m exhausted, sunburnt, have a tonne of unpacking to do and a batch of pictures/reviews to start on but I’m not complaining, I’m excited!
Another friend’s birthday, this one really likes the Zack/Aerith love story in Final Fantasy VII so I made this for her.
I made this for a flaming Batman friend’s birthday card
Sakurajima Volcano with Lightning

Explanation: Why does a volcanic eruption sometimes create lightning? Pictured above, the Sakurajima volcano in southern Japan was caught erupting in early January. Magma bubbles so hot they glow shoot away as liquid rock bursts through the Earth’s surface from below. The above image is particularly notable, however, for the lightning bolts caught near the volcano’s summit. Why lightning occurs even in common thunderstorms remains a topic of research, and the cause of volcanic lightning is even less clear. Surely, lightning bolts help quench areas of opposite but separated electric charges. One hypothesis holds that catapulting magma bubbles or volcanic ash are themselves electrically charged, and by their motion create these separated areas. Other volcanic lightning episodes may be facilitated by charge-inducing collisions in volcanic dust. Lightning is usually occurring somewhere on Earth, typically over 40 times each second.

Justifying the losing side on a Pro/Con list with “your dream”. Way to go brain, make yourself miserable.
the more i think about this, the more amazing it is.
