Identity crisis

Every year or so I have a bit of an identity crisis (mid-life crises are sooo done). It’s been a good while since I had one so it’s well overdue. I’m not going to lie, I had big dreams of coming over to the UK and being able to buy a whole new wardrobe and […]

30 things in my 30th year

In a desperate attempt to force myself to be less of a hermit, I’m making a list of 30 things I’d like to do in my 30th year. I’m starting it a month early, because I’m almost 30 and I do what I want. Learn a new language. Go on a road trip. Read at […]

What I Ate

So just a little update to prove I am doing what I said I would (not that its particularly difficult – it involves eating food) I’ve checked out a few places recently but only took half decent photos of 3 of them because I am a greedy guts and got fully distracted by shovelling food […]

Achievable Goal #2

Firstly, I’m lazy. Secondly, I’m spoilt when it comes to transport options because in Cape Town everyone drives, has a friend who drives, or is able to order an Uber for a relatively affordable fee. So it’s an understatement to say it was a bit of a shock to the system when I suddenly had […]

Achievable Goal #1

Now that I’m living IN London (instead of a good hour+ outside of London) I’m going to lie to you all and say I’m feeling more adventurous. Truth is, I’m still getting settled in and this week has had me missing home more than usual. So I’ve decided to set small, achievable goals to give […]

What I’m listening to

Ever since I was a child/teen, I’ve never worn both my earphones. I hated the idea of not being able to hear what was going on around me It’s also why I prefer the TV volume on a low setting, so I can juuuust hear what’s going on and I guess why I always sleep […]

Update: Year of the Hustle

My last post was a bit of a downer so I feel like I need to redeem myself and prove that I’m not the pessimistic bag of grump that you think I am. I blame it on the amount of time spent on trains with equally pessimistic bags of grump. I’m a naturally anxious person […]

2018: The Year of the Hustle

I hate how easy it is to fall back into old habits. When you have big dreams of starting the New Year with a clean slate – new country, new job, new friends hopefully and new adventures – and they all fall away with the New Years resolution you made to get fit and healthy. […]

London is weird

So I’ve been here for just over a month I’ve been travelling into London for work for about 10 days. Here’s a few things I’ve noticed: Everyone isĀ  always running for the train. They leave like every 3 minutes, so I just don’t understand the rush. But then again, I wouldn’t run if I was […]
