Anglophile grateful for miracles

3. července 2014 v 20:53 | Dark Angel |  Me being me
Well. In six days I will turn 24. I am a student of a prestigious (quite) Czech university, practicing architecture design and engineering while studying, interested in travelling, literature, teahouses and rock and metal music. Slash fanfiction scribbler (almost former) and currently a huge Top Gear fan.

And I am a girl. Does it sound like that? I am sure it does.

Oh and except all this I might be an anglophile. A bit. A wee bit.

I can't really say where it came from but I've ever liked British stuff - music, lifestyle, actors, authors, movies, landscape, architecture... Well, everything. I just found myself being at home in this country as well as in the Czech Republic where I was born. And the language - oh my dear God I love it! It's been thirteen years since I've tasted first basic English words on my tongue. Since then I've studied a lot and have fallen in love with English. Unquestionably and inevitably. This is a true love of my life I guess.

I kept thinking about it today at work while I was sitting there, angrily finishing a boring fu**ed up family house. I kept drawing and at first I couldn't push myself away from thinking about how stubborn our studio's customers can be. This house used to be a very pretty design. Modern, full of light and well proportioned spaces. Not anymore. Our customer - our God. We had to change the project according to the wish of a couple who can't imagine how those lines will transform from the paper to an actual house. So now - according to the customer's wish - there is a house full of long narrow corridors without windows and with dozens of useless corners. Sure, as you wish madam, we will redraw it.

So not to get completely annoyed by the ignorance of people I tried to think about something cheerful. As first (and only these days) my another big adventure came to my mind.

I am going to the UK in about a month!

I managed to find a working place there - a three month internship with a grant from school - which is really cool. This actually is the reason to start writing a blog again - I stopped my diary more than a year ago but this time I'd like to keep writing about the experiences from the internship and hopefully keep writing even after the return. As the last time when I have been in the UK a year ago I expect a lot to change. You don't even have to try hard - things just change dramatically without your intervention when you are abroad for several months.

Honestly I didn't even hope for a place in the UK when I applied. I've sent more than twenty applications and during three weeks I received just rejections in return from all parts of Europe. I applied in France, Sweden, Finland, UK, Ireland, Iceland and Portugal but got just many appologies and laments about how there is not enough work in our occupation field. Well - I know. But hey - miracles happen!

And so I am returning to the green, rainy and misty country of my heart again.

Congratulations! May I ask what kind of job you will be doing for these three months? :-)

Well... it's supposed to be design work. More specifically architecture and interior design ;-)
