They are urgent?

Not really, just some cleanup.

Oh. I have had a lot of admin to do too, since I am 18 now I am allowed to have an independent current account with my bank. Just need to get my flat, and I will be moving out in a few months' time.

I did not know that. Where are you thinking of going?

There is a free place available that I'm trying to get not far from where I live now, and I don't want to move too far away because I'm going to UCL. As it stands, the university is only a half an hour bus ride away.

**zetafunc.****Guest**

By free, I mean, no one is living there, not that it is actually free. The rent is not bad though.

That sounds okay. How is the area? Have you been down there yet?

Everything is pretty much the same. The interior has the same layout as our current flat. We took some photos last year... hopefully it won't have changed drastically. It is literally 50 metres away from our flat and my parents have even said that I can come by for dinner if I can't afford to have it.

What can be better than that? I wish you luck.

Thank you... yes, if I got it, that would be perfect. It would make the next 4 years a lot easier. adriana wants to move out but she wants to go to Warwick and live in halls. But she says she wants to be independent. She has Durham as an insurance.

Having your own place seems a lot better than living in a dorm.

It's a lot easier living like that though. I bet F is finding it really easy; at Cambridge you can eat in the college really cheaply and they give you all sorts of bursaries to help you. But in my own flat I can pretty much do what I want as long as it doesn't get me evicted.

You have to really get out of line to get evicted. I can not see that happening to you.

Yes, it does take a lot. My old neighbour would often leave a trail of used condoms leading up to her door and they did nothing about it. I guess eviction could happen if I couldn't pay rent though.

That is the number one reason. Over here you can just about blow the place up and they do not care but do not be late with the rent.

It sounds challenging living on your own but a good insight into independent life, I feel. Time to get used to eating pot noodle every day.

Not really, you will learn how to cook and how to shop.

Yes, but there will be occasions when I must buy the cheapest thing to fill me quickly and that might be it. I cannot cook many things, just basics.

I wonder if adriana can cook.

Probably not, the modern gal has lost the culinary art.

She's from Cyprus, I wonder if that makes a difference.

Every girl I know claims they can cook though. (Haven't asked adriana or Hannah.)

That is odd over here I rarely find one who will admit she can cook.

I am going to get some rest see you later.
