All of my friends who have moved away are the happiest. There have been only three periods of true contentment in my life. 2007-2008 as a naive teenager, the majority of the month I spent in Thailand in 2012, and the entire month I spent in Shanghai in 2011.
Getting all emotional listening to Shakira. Not only is she an outstanding singer who just happens to be absolutely beautiful, but her charity work is outstanding. This is what she said in a speech in 2010 on her chazza work: "That is how I want the youth of 2060 to see us: That our mission for global peace consisted of sending 30,000 educators to Afghanistan, not 30,000 soldiers. That in 2010, world education became more important than world domination."
If I didn’t have to pay off my masters loan, I would 100% move away from England from a year. It’s so easy to be selfish here and to get wrapped up in petty arguments or materialistic things.
I’m trying to cut down on dairy and gluten, but it’s pretty hard when all I can think about is baked camembert with bread.
Alcohol free weekends rule. I’ve seen my mates for bowling and dinner, cleaned & reorganized the house, worked out both today and yesterday, practised poi, hung out with Jess & Natalia, eaten pizza…. And I’ve still got a whole day left to Han out with Hayley, go training and write for my new archaeology project!
I think no alcohol weekends will start to happen way more
It’s really nice to see your friends happy :)
