Tokyo makes you a person who waits (photo essay)

Tokyo – a metropolis of dreams. It exists in a haze of past and future, quiet and super busy, organised and chaotic. The super-mega-troprolis is home to more than 35 million people: The biggest city in the history of the world. Put that into context for the UK. We have an overall population of 66.8Continue reading “Tokyo makes you a person who waits (photo essay)”

Where wonder reigns and hope exists

Where wonder reigns and hope exists… Every day I woke up on the train with a desire to feel the Sun. Instead, the day offered gray sky with hints of a snowstorm. The peaks of mountains were hidden, the distance made blurry by snow blowing hard outside but I felt irresistibly drawn to its otherContinue reading “Where wonder reigns and hope exists”

Adventures Ahead: The Lake Moon

I got my 6th USA work visa approved on Thursday in London and now I can allow my trip to feel real. It’s been 3 years since I had the real freedom to leave the UK for a long-ish period of time. I’ve been pretty poorly in-general and then clinical placement or school work andContinue reading “Adventures Ahead: The Lake Moon”

I don’t want to waste any more of my time. That’s all: A look back upon my 2015

 

Constantly Lucky: 26 years

It’s my birthday in about 48 hours. I used to hate getting older because, well, I always thought i’d have my life way more ‘together’ by now. Like, I thought that maybe I would have met someone special. Maybe I’d have what my mom calls a “proper job” (by that, she means oppressed, clock yourContinue reading “Constantly Lucky: 26 years”

2014 moments: Hopes for 2015

My mom always says that on the first of the new year, you should do a little bit of everything good: small bits of good habits you want to carry through into the new year. That’s how I’ve always tried to start every first day of the year, no matter where in the world IContinue reading “2014 moments: Hopes for 2015”

Hoping for 2015 to be a year where we open the doors wider & take care of one another

Whoa, 2014. You were such a supremely bittersweet year. Full of opportunities that I am endlessly thankful for and hardships that are unspeakable. You’ve made me even more grateful for every moment of grace and love that we get. I saw my mom get married, my bro move out for the first time & findContinue reading “Hoping for 2015 to be a year where we open the doors wider & take care of one another”

On Navigating Stuckness

I’ve loved a lot of cities, but I didn’t know what it was like to be *in love* with a city, until New York.  Today I take my flight home (and i’m bringing the shingles back with me too). Whilst I’m not best pleased to leave, it marks another summer that I’m still here, kickin’Continue reading “On Navigating Stuckness”

Growing Up A Second Time

It was my good friends birthday yesterday. She turned only 19 years old. Still a baby. Although 19 was only 6/7 years ago for me, it seems so much longer. Being in your mid-20′s isn’t that old, but I feel like I’ve aged 2 lifetimes in the past 3+ years, I feel like I’m ageingContinue reading “Growing Up A Second Time”

I remain steadfast

I remain steadfast with my focus on the present and the future. Currently I’m having like some sort of crazy- probable cause: neck meets over-worked – 37 constant day headache that has degrees of severity from “totally ignorable to- i’m rolling on the floor” painful. It hasn’t gone away, not even once on its own. IContinue reading “I remain steadfast”
