- Chapter 06
When you are ready to plunge into a new life in a new city you must:
surrender to the dread in your gut, now writing daily letters to your head outlining every single way in which this could go wrong
accept you will be lost far longer than it takes to know the streets around your rented room with the bold strokes of mould you were never introduced to when you viewed the place
reach for the rose-tinted glasses that will cloud your vision whenever the hell of that sketchy walk home or tourist-crammed train carriage slip over into physical torture
know, without reserve, that one day looking down from a high window or up from a grimy pavement floor you will look at this city and think "what on earth am I doing here?"
