It's been a life-long dream of mine to travel the world with my family. And I'm fortunate enough to have seen that dream come true in the last year or so. First I got to travel to Spain & Italy with my mum; then I travelled to Gran Canaria earlier this year with one of my older sisters and her family; and this summer started off with me travelling to Belgium with another of my sisters, Rachel. 👭🇧🇪
Ever since I can remember I've loved travelling. Discovering new places, and experiencing different cultures has always fascinated me. From the first time I left my home country, I have felt at home wherever I went - regardless of how much of a misfit I was there. My eagerness to learn what I could about this new place overtook my fear of being surrounded by so much unfamiliarity; I would try my best to catch every sound, and take in everything I possibly could with my eyes before I had to look away and keep moving.
It hadn't occurred to me that not everyone feels this way until a friend asked me,
"How do you do it? How are you so comfortable living among strangers in a foreign land? Don't you get scared at all? Don't you hate the feeling of being away from everything that's so familiar to you?"
The first few weeks of May were spent preparing for finals. This involved a lot of reading and re-reading notes on different topics, hence, a lot of learning took place in these weeks.📚 Although it was a stressful period for me, it wasn't all bad as I love learning new things. 😊Therefore, even though I was happy to see the back of school when we finally closed for the summer, I was eager to continue learning...
So I started reading through the 1st book of Kings in the Bible. I've read it before, but I really wanted to go through it again; not only because I enjoy reading about the different kings who ruled Israel and how their leadership influenced Israel's history, but also because I learn so much that I can still apply in my life today from each and every one of them.
I recently came across some memes on the internet about women's ever-changing emotions that made me laugh out loud. What I find so funny about these memes is how accurate they are.
One of my current favourites, for example, says:
"Being a woman is exciting because we don't know what mood we'll be in next, or for how long."
It's crazy how abruptly our moods can change. My mood swings, for example, change so often in a day that I lose count of how many emotions I've felt by the end of the night. It's even worse when I haven't slept well the previous night, when I'm hungry or "at that time of the month" (ladies, I know you know what I mean😏).
"Sorry for what I said when I was hungry."🍴😔
There's a quote that says, "The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man." - Unknown.
I couldn't agree more!😊
Student life can be overwhelming. 😩
I spend most of my days running from one place to another, making sure that I catch the train or the bus to school on time. And when I'm not in school, I'm working on my assignments or studying for my exams and making sure that the rest of my life is in order - not to mention putting some time aside for blogging as well. Although I enjoy it, I sometimes need to give my body and my mind a break from it all.
So I escape by going for a walk in nature! 👣
I find it easier and more effective to write down how I feel rather than to say it.
