London or Nothing

December 6, 2010 @ 2:43 AM | Permalink

It's crunch-time. The perverbial period of overly caffinated, underly rested students, but all I can think about is London. To be on the Tower Bridge again. In Picadilly Circus. To be anywhere but here. I would pay anything. Ironically, that seems to be the only thing possibly preventing my London adventure from happening- money.

Cost of living is approximately $7,500. I have nowhere near that, not because I haven't worked hard and saved-- I have, don't get me wrong-- because I've evaporated all my funds these first three years I've spent at this liberal arts school in Pennsylvania. I find myself regretting every step, every penny spent I convert into London experience. Ten dollars at the diner or a drink at a London pub with new friends?

So I find myself at a loss of options, a loss of words, and most of all: a loss of focus. I sat down to write my end term paper, but here I am... blogging. I just can't think about anything else. This awkward in-between is looming over my head. Am I going? Will I get the money? This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. I've already told all my family and friends that I am going. Can I face the unavoidable "what are you doing here? I thought you were going to London this semester" conversation? No. It's London or nothing. Call me stubborn, but if I can't go to London I'm throwing my towels in. I've made enough connections already to get a starting job at some theater. That's what I'll do. London or live at home. London or get a job. London or nothing.
