Hello from London.
Have been giving myself some time to settle in and get used to the London vibes again. RIght now I am feeling extra blessed for the nice weather – not too cold and no rain yet (touch wood!).
As some of you might know, I experienced depression whilst I was at Cambridge. So I have to admit it isn't the easiest for me to come back alone again. I know this sounds ridiculous but the thought of having to spend birthday and Christmas alone had made me slightly sad a while ago. On one hand this is one very precious opportunity, to work and live abroad; while on the other hand I am a little nervous as to whether I could blend in, am I good enough, blahblahblah.
Also I have to admit I lived a very spoiled life. I never really need to do my own cooking and cleaning. So taking good care of myself as well as the flat is a little bit of challenge to me. Yeh, I was literally figuring out where to get rid of my trash. And yes, learning to cook. But I am certainly certainly enjoying the learning again (Adulting).
I still remember the moment when I stepped my feet on this place, I couldn’t stop smiling from the bottom of my heart. And then I realised, right, why should I worry about things that haven't even happened? I should have spent my time thinking about how to make the most out of this half year. Travel, blogging, photos, shopping, learning to cook, achieving a nicer body, everything I have wanted to try and do! And now that I have more personal time, it's time to improve my inner self.
Learn something new every day.
Currently, I am making myself learn a new recipe a day. I have always wanted to learn to cook but somehow the plan was just nowhere now. I am also decorating my apartment, showering it with flowers, candles and everything I wish my future home has.
So! I have set myself with the following targets for this half-year secondment:
1. Learn a recipe every day
2. Decorate the apartment
3. Make travel plans
4. Stay fit
5. And most importantly, not to regret.
There are no second chances usually. Now that I have one, I won't let myself regret again. Right now, I am truly truly truly enjoying myself. I can't feel more blessed for what I have. I mean what life am I living?
Meanwhile me in my apartment (with a timer):
So, see you in a bit, HomeKong!
