Well, it happened again - a long period of absence. I never thought that university life could be so demanding and stressful, both from an educational point of view and personal. I've had assignments that were absolutely horrible sometimes; I've had moments when I felt like I couldn't remember a thing for my exams; I've had moments that were far too stressful.
I never would have thought that so many things would change in 9 months as well. Last year in September I left for England with someone I considered a friend and when we got there, arguments started. We're not friends anymore, I have nothing to say to a person who considers me a friend only out of interest and who talks about me behind my back. Why would I be friends with someone who only wants me to do things her way, who lies and would even walk over dead bodies to get what she wants? I'm sick of her lies, her spoiled princess attitude, how she considers herself perfect, how she spreads rumors and of her hypocrisy. Most of all, I don't need someone like her to talk about me with my flatmates. For the last weeks there, my flatmates didn't speak to me because of her. We got along so well at first and then she had to spread God knows what rumors and that's how I've lost the friends I made there. It's pathetic how she feels good about herself when she does this. It's even more pathetic that she has to victimize herself to make friends. I don't need persons like that in my life. We haven't spoken in months now and I have to admit, not being friends with her anymore is a great feeling. The only thing I regret is that I didn't realize how fake she was earlier. High school might have been different then. Who needs enemies when you have friends like this?
The last two months in Birmingham were challenging, to say the least. Apart from what I've already mentioned, I've had problems finding a house for when I go back there, I've had problems with a group assignment and the group I was in - again, because of Little Miss Perfection from above, I've had problems with packing, with finding a place to store my things over the summer and to top things, I missed my flight to Romania because of an incompetent bus driver, spent 11+ hours in the airport and I had to buy a new flight ticket. Fun days.
What matters is that I managed to apply for campus accommodation again so I have a place to stay when school starts again; I managed to find a place to store my things over the summer and most importantly, I got home safely. Now, I have plenty of time to relax before the new academic year starts.
So, during this hectic period, I've had no time or inspiration for art. My muse has been dead for months now. Hopefully I'll get it back during this summer.
Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday, who added me to their watch lists and everyone who faved my works while I was gone
