A 6-year gap reunion!

Best friends since the mid-90's, we met up after 6-years of no visits :o) Now, she in Oxford, me in Durham, and not an ounce of cool between us.

A brief note To You,

As mentioned, its been a long week. From last Saturday to today, what has occurred is the following: a weekend visit from my brother simultaneously added with a rendez-vous between best friends whom hadn’t seen each other in over six years also referred to as the Epic Reunion of Ariana (me) and Karazlactim (G); 2 full days working on my feet for the Durham University Careers Fair; 2 days of modules; 3 job interviews with 1 offer and 2 call-backs; a trip to Newcastle to apply for my National Insurance Number and a check-in at the Turner Prize 2011 exhibitions; a lecture through my department with David Mepham, the Director for Human Rights in the United Kingdom; and a lecture with David Miliband, MP for South Shields. Brilliant week, but a long one. Hope the photos suffice for now as I must run, because I’ve a bun in the oven – literally.. I’m baking bread as we speak… the metaphoric translation would make this a rather busy week with loads more gossip to share than I care for at the moment.

🙂

Love from, Vic Louise xoxoxo

  1. the next time you’re in Newcastle please go to the biscuit factory it’s in Jesmond but it’s a short walk from one of the metro stations (on the other side of Northumbria University)! they have a nice cafe upstairs in the back and lots of art. or if you are looking for a cool coffee place, there is an underground coffee shop called Flat Caps that is hard to find but the shopkeeper Joe is amazing and if you go please say hello for me! Did you notice any kooky street art here and there? Plaques in the sidewalk saying stuff like “John Matthews walked past this spot 43 times in 1954. On May 1955 he looked up.”

    • You are going to have to give me a list of good finds for Newcastle! I completely blanked on the fact that you lived there for a year, and didn’t consult you before my visit on Friday! I was searching for a good cafe for lunch, but ended up at a little underground Italian restaurant instead.. still rather yummers, but I do love my hole-in-the-wall cafes as you know! I didn’t spot any art whilst roaming around, although I was basically within the Cloth Market and Gateshead Quays for the day since that’s where my appointments were located. I’ll have to head more towards the uni next time 🙂 Perhaps you can fly in and give me a nice tour from a local’s point of view…? 😉
