It's interesting having some time now to reflect on my stay in London so far. On a day to day basis I feel as though I am struggling just to make ends meet, but looking back through these pictures, I have managed to squeeze in some pretty cool stuff. 

I think one of my favourite parts about living in London are the new friends I've made. I was lucky enough to step off the plane and straight into a flat with about 14 new friends (thanks to my friend, Bracken and the Edinburgh Fringe). It really set me up with a great network of interesting and lovely people, many of who I still see weekly. 

I have also made some great friends through my last job (working front of house at the West End production of Singin' In The Rain). It was there that I had the pleasure of meeting a lovely Scottish gal named Samantha. Sam and I are like peas in a pod. We get on so well and we always seem to be on the same page. Sammy is my go to gal, my pal, my sweets, my love, my Scottish sister from another mister. I am very thankful to call her and many other front of house peeps my friends. 

I've made so many lovely friends over the past year, but another great part about living in London, is everyone that comes to visit London! I've been lucky enough to meet up with many of my Canadian friends, some that I haven't seen for years. It was also such a treat seeing some of my favourite Canadian improvers on the London stage for this year's Improvathon.

That's enough reflecting for now! At this present moment I am so lucky to be back in Canada and I'm really appreciating my time with my prairie friends. Now that the show is on it's feet I can't wait for more catch-up dates with pals.

Thanks for tuning in!
