A Boyfriend/Girlfriend Is A Luxury, Not A Necessity...

It was a spring afternoon mid-way through April, a very good friend of mine (Jessica) and I met up for brunch at the Holborn Grind. It was one of those “we seriously need to catch up, there’s so much to tell you” meet-ups and you end up talking so much your food ends up cold. Anyway, something she said that day stuck with me. It changed my entire perspective on love and relationships,

“I don’t miss people, is that weird? I lived a life before them, so I know that I can cope without them”

Hello? lightbulb moment or what?!

21 Lessons I Learned Before Turning 21

It’s that time of the year again, my birthday. As I grow older, it becomes less exciting and this year I somewhat dreaded it. It only fully dawned on me that I was getting old when my former sixth-form published pictures of their students getting their A-Level results. I thought “Oh my days, that was three years ago already!” Whilst, it should be exciting. It puts that extra layer of pressure that I need to achieve this goal within the year (Earlier in the year, I made a five-year goal). But I know it’ll fall into place eventually.

Nevertheless, this has by far been the best and most exciting. It was surrounded by some of the most important people in my life that bring me so much joy and love. So, thank you to all of you who greeted and spent time with me.
(Especially to my family, Francine, Eric, Lizzie, Bose, Jess and James and Pauline.)

I’ve learnt some incredibly valuable lessons growing up and I thought that I should share that with you!

I Don't Want to Settle For 'Average'

I don’t want to be average. I don’t want to settle for average. But I somewhat feel average.

I’ve always been drawn to bold and ambitious people because I wanted to be like them. On the other hand, I also succumb myself to fear more often than I would like.

Paris, France - The Dos and Donts (and How to Avoid Getting Scammed)

Paris, a city renowned for its beauty. Surely, it’s on everyone’s bucket list? It was certainly in mine. However, whilst its tourist attractions met my expectations, my overall experience was a disappointment. It’s my least favourite European holiday yet and I couldn’t wait to go home. 

Five weeks later, I’m still dealing with issues that we encountered back in Paris.

Here’s a list of dos and donts in Paris, don’t make the same mistakes that we did! (And also a mini-story time of how we got scammed in Paris and why AirFrance is the worst airline we’ve ever encountered)

"I Made It"

Whenever people say “University was the best three years of my life” I tend to bow my head in shame. Did I do something wrong? Why didn’t I feel the same way about my University experience? Because personally for me, it was the toughest three years of my life. And it wasn’t the best…

"Go back to your country!" a boy in my german class yelled
"Ni hao!” a white grown man yelled from across the street
“Ch*nk!” they screamed at my sister whilst speeding in their car

Fifteen years ago, my parents sacrificed what we once called ‘home’ to move to a country that they knew would give us a better life. Did they want to? Probably not. Did they think it was necessary? Absolutely.
