I came across videos by a lovely lady named Aida Azlin which was shared by a couple of friends on FB. She makes video journals chronicling certain aspects of her life and lessons she learned from them, and this is only one of the many amazing things this lady does to inspire other women be a better version of themselves and foster sisterhood. Her take on life does make you rethink about yours, in a good way. Do check her out!
Watching her videos and reading her posts make me realise that I have not been blogging for ages haha! So here goes…
I will start with this though – that I am settling down well in London and adjusting back to student life quite alright. It does help that I had lived in the UK before (Glasgow, like 20 years ago lol!) and I was in London just 2 years ago, so the new living environment isn’t much of a shock to me. I am thankful to be surrounded by, as how the Americans put it, super awesome people, and I try to “return the favor” as much as I can, by trying to be an even better friend. Life is after all, one big karma, I believe.
The student flat where I am staying at is good. What makes it even better is also the super awesome people I have as my flatmates *insert smiley face*.
We hang out in the kitchen together. I personally enjoy cooking all my meals, unless I have plans to eat out. Friends back home say I seem to be quite the chef in London compared to Malaysia LOL – well, our kitchen is quite well equipped, I get to apportion my food intake and reduce food wastage, grocery is generally cheap, eating out everyday is quite an expensive affair, and I’m not exactly earning any money right now guys. I hope that addresses your curiosity thank you very much =P
Friends have told me not to expect snow in London come winter looking at recent past years. So I wasn’t really. But last Sunday, we woke up to that lovely fluffy stuff falling down from the sky! Well, it was wet, cold, slippery and icy, but all that are secondary to the fun that we had playing in the snow on the way to the school library. Certainly a Sunday I will remember for a long, long time teehehe.
I can’t deny that I miss home and everyone back home (especially during Adib’s solemnisation *tsk tsk*). But I tell myself to take full advantage of the opportunities presented in life, be thankful of the abundance of little blessings I have around me, to focus on improving myself, not just knowledge wise, but in other aspects as well, and of course, to enjoy every moment!
And so I guess when you are enjoying every moment, time flies so fast. We are already at the final week before the term break starts! Starting to worry about the essays and dissertation *cold sweats* but also looking forward for my winter trip to Prague and Germany in a couple of weeks yayy! Will definitely blog about that!
