American Beauty/American Psycho


So six days after I rung in the New Year and posted all about my New Year's Resolutions I jetted off to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. I don't want to bore you too much with it, seeing as if you're up to date with me, you'd have seen three vlogs, a photo diary and constant whitterings on social media all about my 12 days in New Jersey. But here's my one last hurrah in the form of my Instagram Update! I'll be frank with you, the rest of January was just a blur but those 12 days were probably one of the best decisions I have made in a while. So what did I do that I didn't vlog? Well, we watched the Lizzie Maguire Movie twice, and we almost went for the hat trick. I drank a XXL bottle of White Zinfandel in one sitting, which is an extreme rarity for me. I ate sushi in New York City whilst drinking $2 beers, all the while tricking those around me that I was a natural with chop sticks. I got the seed of returning in May planted in my head by a security guard in the Met. I learned all about the Jersey Devil and the Tick-Tock Diner, and made so many more fantastic memories that I couldn't possibly list them all. If there is one thing in this post I'd like to impart onto you, is that it's really great to go and see your friends. There doesn't have to an ocean between you, but I've been the type of person to say 'no, thanks' and stayed in and watched Netflix. Netflix can wait, but your life will not and the older I get the more I realise that keeping the bonds with the people you care about strong is paramount to a happy life. It's okay to reach out, and I encourage you to do so.

Well, that took a philosophical turn, I hope January treated you fabulously and the rest of 2015 comes up Milhouse for ya'.
