So the gorgeous @LYXZEN and @RAMBO have set us the task of explaining what three wishes we would like, if fortunate enough to find a genie.

So lets crack open my head and see what falls out. ^.~

It's been a challenge to think of things, I originally thought about wishing for no one to have the ability to lie, to irradiate money, for a...

Hope you didn't crack that head too hard, but I very much like what came flying out :)

a person worth knowing if life

So since I committed to travelling the beginning of next year, for an unknown length of time(basically whenever I ran out of cash ect) I've understandably bounced through so many emotions and thoughts.
Just the usual suspects of fear of the unknown and worries of what bad could happen to me while in a foreign land. Which has lead me to momentary moments...

Exciting to embark on this journey along with you :) 

Today marks one week since I solidified my plans to travel. The idea had been bouncing round in my head for quite some time now, seemingly just out of reach, even despite the fact I've actually been saving towards it for just over a month. I knew one thing, I wanted to experience as much of the world, the different cultures and people in...

I loved travelling more than anything else. I also found Mandarin super difficult!

Sounds like an amazing adventure and life changing experience that you are planning. So brave of you to pick the hard way to do it too and put yourself as far out of your comfort zone as possible! I'm sure hearing about your experiences would be fascinating, not least because you write so well. I recently heard another way of expressing the death bed regret sentiment, I think it was on the Gilmore Girls of all things, and was something like: "I want to live my life so that I'll be able to read an in depth biography about myself in later years and not puke." I quite liked that!

Every time I walk to and from work I'm fortune enough to be able to walk through a mini Nature reserve which I absolutely love. It's like instantly escaping the bull shit and soothes the soul.

It's definitely not just you, you've totally hit the nail on the head. Our immediate environment must have a massive effect on our mood and feelings, so being stuck in ugly and oppressive surroundings is bound to sour our thoughts and attitude, which likely multiplies in contact with others. If you've seen the film "Withnail and I", then you'll know it's great to "get into the countryside, rejuvenate"! Though it didn't necessarily work out so well for them, haha!

Firstly my opinions that I want to share are no way thought of as right over wrong, and that I look down on anyone in anyway that is different from me, this is purely me sharing who I am and how I think for those who have been brilliant enough to follow me and show me support. And that this is not meant to be...

*Hugs* I'll raise a toast to from my porch while you're in the garden. (Counts as having a drink together, right?)
raindogsteve:
Never change, we love you exactly how you are, that is what makes you so adorable! <3
