I like staying inside in my studio and experimenting with the spanish light.
We have given up leaving the house unless it is necessary. This is why:
I'm enjoying this winter* so far. Perhaps it's because of the glowing logs. Or perhaps it's because I know I won't have to tough out the whole 5 months of fog and bone-freeze. We are going to Buenos Aires (where it will be summer) in February. Salva is going to finish his thesis, once and for all next year and then....
We will find a European city to live in, with a thriving art and music scene, 3 bedroom apartments for under 500 Euros a month, and brisk but sunny winters. Does anyone know the name of this city?
I'm kind of serious.
Anyway, I now need to write an autobiography for my masters application and it's proving quite difficult. It's also been difficult to think of some people who I'm willing to bother for a reference. What a stupid request that is, anyway. Obviously I'm going to ask someone I like, and who I believe likes me. I'm not going to be asking my year 12 maths teacher.
So I'm going to do it, but don't let that distract you. If you read this, tell me where I should live.
*I know winter has not really begun yet. Winter means time of cold in this case.
