I met Tumblr user clementatlee and swore a minimal amount.
On the train I got it turned out to have a bus change near the end of it and I was like oh okay well I’m going to die because being an adult and working out travel crap at 1am is not my forte but turned out to be a++ because the train’s buses look old skewl like ugly 1960s decor inside I love it and the people with me seemed like my lil travelling crew and this is literally the most boring post I’m sorry
Today’s been gr8!! Did my usual nerding out at museums in london then saw palin thx to my brother’s friend’s hella discount price for me and met tumblr user bossmew!!! who is mega lovely (first tumblr person I’ve met irl! I’m all up in this internet thing now) and then the train journey home was sleepy
And I literally make friends with every old stranger I meet I was talking to this middle-aged woman and when she asked me what I wanted to do as a job (they waste no time asking this) I mentioned the archives and she gave me her business card because she does family history documents in her company and to get in contact with her??? yooooooo so gonna email her tomorrow. It could be crap but it could also not be crap so??
