I am currently sat in the Sydney International departure lounge getting ready to leave #Australia. It has been such an amazing year! When I arrived last July, I had no idea that I would have as much fun as I did or that I would meet such great people. I just want to say thank you to all of you who made this last year the best, there are too many of you to tag. It was all an experience.
Yes, it’s that time of year again where everybody freaks about a fresh start and having a new grip on reality, but in reality everybody knows everything will stay the same. Yes, you will remain to each chocolate. Yes, you will let the odd homework slide. no, you will not get up and go to the gym, who do you think you are kidding huh?
Over the years, I have been known to spout pointless resolutions and challenges for myself that even I have accepted that I will have failed in the first week of the new year, nay,the first day even. And, yet, I still continue to delude myself into believing that it will be different…
This year I say no more. I have not created any resolutions nor have I made any promises to myself. If I want to be a bitch, I shall be a bitch. If I want to eat the last biscuit in the packet, I will not have to convince myself that the ethical thing to do is eat it or it will be lonely now that I have already eaten it’ s entire platoon. I will not work harder in school.
this year will be no different, and for once, I am okay with that.
Merry Christmas guys!!
the oppan gangnam style that’s sweeping the nation. i’m hooked, i cannot get this song out of my head! so if you cant beat them, join them.
What I am inevitably going to look like tonight in bed after watching Doctor Who - The Angels Take Manhattan. They may have taken Manhattan, Rory, Amy and the detective at the start of the episode but they will not take me! Tonight I will take the advice of the doctor (David Tennant to Sally Sparrow) … Don’t Blink. Blink and you’re Dead. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away and DON’T BLINK.
If I told you that i miss you, would you tell me that you missed me too?
It’s been over a year and yet I still pine for a month’s stay in Africa! I even miss the awful, bland food, the fact that i could only have a 3minute cold dripping tap as a shower once a week and even the mile walk to get the water! i want to be able to wake up in the morning to a cramped tent filled with dirty clothes, to get out and having to dress at the same time. i want to call ‘i’ll get the water, be back in twenty minutes’ and have people thinks its normal. i want to eat the disgusting porridge that was made bearable with the lush sweet banana’s hand picked by the locals for us every morning. i especially want every child within a 4mile radius to come and visit me everyday and scream MUZUNGU at me.
i want to wake up tomorrow and be back in that smelly, boiling cramped tent because i know that i will make a difference tomorrow by staying there and rebuilding a classroom or trying to teach some children knowledge that i have gained from my education. i want to wake up tomorrow and know that i am doing something important and that i am making a change.
This image kills me every time. I actually love Dawn French, she is my idol! Geraldine you lovely, lovely woman.
