I've just a few days to go before I jet off, to quite literally, the other side of the world. With library books overdue, referencing to be done, birthdays, backpacking and university all to be attended to, this week is a busy one!
Don't you find that whenever your to do list is a long one, you just want to curl up and snuggle in bed with a film? I've currently got that big time. It's very distracting.
I'm back on the uni commute (I haven't missed that bad boy over the summer!
) and have already encountered a broken down train and a 30min plus delay, and that was only the first day! But I had some reflection time, which you can read about here
, so it ain't all bad!
Let's talk about the weather. Picking out what to wear is a nightmare. Is it going to rain? is it not going to rain? Where is my umbrella?
Then you dress in a water ready ensemble only to be greeted by 28 degrees and sunshine. Weather app, pull yourself together.
|Adam & I during our trip to Prague.|
I'm almost ready to go away, just finishing the last few bits and bobs. My Dads is sending me off, just like we did to Adam earlier in the week. It doesn't matter how many times we do it, dropping him off at the station for him to go home and driving away is never easy. My brick wall persona is gone, and I totally crumble
. Long distance is hard. But it's short term pain for long term gain. To all of you out there in long distance relationships, I feel you!
On food: It seems carbohydrates really are the devil.
I blame them for the tight squeeze of my old Levis. 27" is just a little too snug for my liking and with a student budget it's loose weight or buy new jeans! So it's win-win as lettuce is cheap and give it a week or two, I'll slide right back in. (I am of course joking, I will eat things other than lettuce, be safe guys, but eating more lettuce won't hurt.
Thinking ahead about food (As per usual
) I bought a travel juicer for my trip. I'm going to spice up my life and start eating breakfast, in a healthy-juiced up way. I'm not going all out green just yet, but the best place to start is the beginning.
Either grabbing life by the balls or getting old has made me try less with those I don't like or don't care for. I'll be civil and pleasant, but I've come to the conclusion that there's no point in trying too hard with people you either don't like, or don't want to be friends with.
What a revelation, at the grande old age of 20 ladies and gentleman.

Speaking of age, I turn the big 2-1 in a weeks time. I've never been big on birthdays, but as I'll be down under, I might make an exception! At least I found time to go out and celebrated Dad's birthday this week, which was very fun! Prague was a treat from Adam to celebrate before he headed back up north and it was lovely to just remove ourselves from our day to day lives at home. It's good to get away.
If you don't hear from me in a while, don't worry. I'm either on a plane or getting to grips with a new time zone. I'll update you soon. I haven't planned any posts to go out whilst I'm away, so it'll come as and when it flows.
In the meantime, I'll see you on Instagram
