You know how sometimes you want to be a decent human being?
It’s almost a cosmic event for me at this point. At the beginning of the month I think. “I’m going to be a great employee, I am going to get promoted, I’m going to try to like my job and be positive.” And then the captain of all douchery aka “Monday” (which should be the third day of the weekend by the way) rolls around, my alarm attempts to lull me from my slumber—fails of course. Not once, not twice. But enough times for me to reach that happy medium of getting a few extra minutes of sleep and the darkness. Here I lie at the greatest crux in the history of mankind. I could hit the “stop” button, go to work, get there on time and be a respectable person in society. Or, I could hit the…

They say we experience true happiness when we enjoy the simple things in life, like a walk at the park or eating our favorite meal..at least that’s what i’ve read in Daily Mail. Apparently, a research team at PruHealth Institute conducted a poll asking people when and doing what they think they experience happiness.

We’re planning on seeking out some new places to visit in Hong Kong alongside the iconic sights that draw us back time again to this bustling metropolis.
Yesterday afternoon I took the train down to King’s Cross station in London from where it was only a short walk across to the adjacent St. Pancras station for my Thameslink connection to Gatwick Airport. St. Pancras International underwent a multi million pound refurbishment back in 2007 and the station is now a joy to behold and as I had plenty of time to spare I took a closer look before boarding my…

For the first time in my entire life, this morning I actually cried at the news.
It’s impossible to ignore what’s happening in the world, but if you want to, or if you think that speaking on the current political climate should be left to politicians then you’ve come to the wrong place. I usually refrain from writing anything even remotely political on social media because it undoubtedly will attract scrutiny and counter arguments but on this matter, frankly I don’t care. I am so comfortable in the way I view the world and I would be tremendously disappointed in myself if I didn’t have some commentary on the horrendous path the world is on right now.
First of all, I’d like to point out that my mum was born in the United States. Consequently, my brother and I have the right – for now – to claim dual citizenship…
