Deciding what to do with your life is tough. Apparently professional bed tester jobs are few and far between, and very few people are lucky enough to leave uni with the small fortune you need to go travelling. So then you've probably got one of three options. Stay in your uni town and get a job. Move home and get a job. Or follow the yellow brick road (or grey tarmac motorway) to London... and get a job. It's big. It's busy. It's loud. It's without doubt the most fun place for someone in their twenties to spend the last few care-free years of their lives before things like matrimony, mortgages and *whispers* children are thrown into the equation. 1. You feel really smooth when you use your Oyster 2. You WILL bump into people more than you think... 3. ...and when you do it feels like the greatest thing ever 4. When you understand the tube map you'll realise how painfully simple it is 5. Everyone knows someone who lives there 6. Online dating is totally acceptable 7. No matter what you want to do with your career, you can do it in London 8. The Natural History Museum is totally free 9. As is the Science Museum 10. And the British Musem 11. And the Tate 12. And the Tate Modern 13. OK, naming all of them would probably be cheating - but there are a whole world of free galleries and museums 14. There are 4500 pubs & bars 15. Sitting in the park on a summer's day 16. You don't have to be nice to strangers 17. There are hundreds of thousands of single people 18. You see famous people all the time 19. You feel really smug when you go back home and tell your friends about London life 20. It's one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world 21. Whatever type of food you want, you'll find it 22. Your commute will take you past some of the most famous landmarks in the world 23. It rains a lot less than it does in the north 24. The view from Waterloo bridge looking east 25. The view from Waterloo bridge looking west 26. Drinking by the Thames 27. Yes, it's more expensive, but you'll earn more there than anywhere else 28. Topshop on Oxford Street 29. Westfield Stratford is the largest urban shopping centre in the EU 30. The Olympics showed that all Londoners can be nice when they want to be 31. Miss the countryside? There are urban farms 32. Once you know you way around there is no greater feeling than a tourist asking you for directions and you actually knowing the answer 33. The fancy double doors on the Jubilee Line 34. Markets. So many markets 35. London gets less rain per year than anywhere else in the UK - just 700mm, compared to 1200mm in Cardiff 36. People who live in London live 5 years longer than the national average 37. Every band who tours plays in London 38. You can just hop on a train to Paris when you get bored 39. It's home to some of the most famous sporting venues in the world - Wembley, Twickenham, Lords, Wimbledon... 40. Home is always just a few hours away 41. You can never be bored with TimeOut telling you what to do 42. Nightbuses. You can always get home thanks to nightbuses 43. The top deck on nightbuses: the party continues 44. Stunning views from The Shard, The London Eye and Primrose Hill 45. EVERYONE goes for drinks after work 46. You can always drink without worrying about how you're going to get home. NO ONE drives 47. Want to still feel like a student? Move to Clapham 48. Infernos 49. When it rains it never lasts that long 50. Running along the river makes running much less depressing. And you, what would be the reason for you to move to London. You want to hear more? Like this, and I will share more :D
