What is wrong with these monolingual English people?!

FYI- I am sorry if this is rushed and full of mistakes, I wrote it in an angered state after readin THIS absymal article.   Last October, I did a language/culture exchange trip to Santander in Spain. It was A-MA-ZING 😀 I loved every minute of it. Firstly, the weather was good. Secondly the people were […]

post for blogs: Never Felt Better

Who? Never Felt Better What? Blog about everything it seems! But personal interests are listed as military history, sports and politics, among others. I read mainly for the sport (football) but have read posts on history which are good. When? Everyday, give or take. Where? http://www.neverfeltbetter.wordpress.com Why? I like to read the analyses of football […]

The Big Issue costs £2.50…do you pay for the paper or the face?

Today, I was having a hard day. Or a hard-ish day more like. I was shattered and waiting for the weekend desperately. I was hot. I was bored. And I’d been stuck in an office for about five hours. I needed a break. So I took a short walk outside my office building. Just around […]

THIS. IS. NOT. A. BLOG.

You think about others too much. But do you actually think about them?

You swipe your oyster, you pay your fare or you nip on the back without paying. You walk on upstairs because that’s where you sit. Always. It’s cooler and quieter and just simply easier. But you’re there at rush-hour. It’s four o’clock. The school rush-hour. And so almost every seat is taken. In every double […]
