Yesterday I spent the day in Reading, which was a bit nostalgic for me. I met up with three people, two of whom were great friends from my Masters. People I used to spend a lot of time with but now I rarely see. We aren’t the best at staying in touch, but I think that only makes any infrequent visits more enjoyable. There is more to catch up on. We spent the day moving from pub to pub in Reading, recounting the many good times and adventures we shared. It was just what I needed at this point when I am still trying to find my place in my “new” life.
Some of my family members knew, but I figured that since I am leaving tomorrow, it was probably about time that I brought people up to speed on my trip to London. I am traveling with work to spend a week in our London office. I feel it will be quite beneficial since there are a number of people in IT at this office that I’ve dealt with but never met. Not to mention that my direct project supervisor works out of this office.
On the non-work side it will also give me a chance to meet up with a few different friends that I have not seen in a while. And I might be able to get a spa treatment or two done while I’m there. I will report in with anything interesting that happens. Unfortunately I think I’m going to be too early to get a chance to see one of the MacBook Air’s in the Apple Store on Regent Street. I know that they aren’t shipping yet, but there is a possibility that they have a demo model there. I’ll definitely be stopping in to check.
