Last Days in London
It's been a week since I arrived in London.  I've used these past days to say goodbye to this city and friends that I love so much. I fly back to Brasil on Friday... I have no clue when I'll be back in the UK.

My good friend live_life_like  started this journal in Brasil in May 2001 as a way of keeping in touch with myself and another friend we had in common. Thus the name. In September that year, a week after 9/11, I left Brasil and moved to London with my boyfriend to start a new life.

This journal has been a great place to inhabit during my 12 years in London.  I survived many dull temp jobs thanks to it, and met tons of people who went on to become close friends. I'd like to one day sit down and read through it - there have been some dramatic posts and some epic flamewars!

This journal will come to an end when I fly to Brasil on Friday. It brings to an end my 12 years in London.

Here's to whatever comes next!

I will miss commonpeople, but I do look forward to your writing in your new chapter. Good luck and good health.


Good luck in future adventures in blogging!

There is always something exiting and fresh about a new beginning. Wishing you the best of lucks.

I'm so sorry to hear that you are leaving London - and Livejournal! It's a shame we never connected in person.

Bonne chance! *waves from South Ken*

Merci! *waves back from Mile End*

it's possible to convert your journal into a pdf; i'd recommend doing that!

and be sure to hit us up with the new journal!

Thank you - someone gave me that tip a while back but I forgot to follow it through! I really must do it...

Cheers to you as you head off into the unknown! Scary but I know it's a journey you will do yourself proud on.

I'm wishing you lots of luck with your new life, family etc. I've lost track of how long I've been reading your journal. I honestly feel like I'm losing a friend.

Are you starting another LJ journal or leaving altogether?

Thank you!

I'm not sure yet about a new journal! It all feels very final for me at the moment...

Well, I'm wishing you all the best for the future x

Ah gosh, you're really leaving? Somehow I thought it wouldn't have to come to this. I'll miss reading your Commonpeople journal; I've really enjoyed your insights and observations here; you're a great, thoughtful writer and I hope you find a way to keep writing, maybe for publication, in future. I hope everything in Brasil works out well and you enjoy this next phase of your life.

Many thanks! That means a lot to me. I wish the same for you here in London - you are very lucky to live here! :-)

Awww no. I don't come to LJ much any more but I do read your entries still. Sad to see you are leaving but hopefully you can come back to LJ once you are settled again. Good luck for the future xx

I am going to miss reading your well-written journal. I wish you all the best and I hope things work out okay! I hope to hear news of yours in the future in some form or another...and maybe actually finally visit Brasil myself one of these days!
