5 Secrets to Room-mate Bliss

5 Secrets to Room-mate Bliss

I think Ben has been my most stable relationship since I arrived in London (and maybe even before that.) I absolutely love living with him; he’s my best friend. Despite the fact that I trust him with my life and love him completely, though, there are times when we both get on each others’ nerves. It’s during these times that we both have to take a step back and think about how this room-mate situation works.

This happened just the other day when I arrived home from work. I’d been aching to get out of the heels I was wearing, slip into my pyjamas for the night, and chow down on some tomato, basil, and mozzarella crisps I’d ordered from AGA Food Hall the other day. When I opened the drum, however, there was nothing but crumbs at the bottom. I was furious.

Surviving a Visit From the Relatives

Surviving a Visit From the Relatives

I haven’t seen my family since I moved to London, except via Skype, so when they called me last month to tell me they were coming, I was initially excited.

Yes, I said initially.

I love my parents. They mean the world to me. I quickly imagined them sleeping on my bed while I took the couch, waking up to my mum burning a batch of pancakes in the morning, and then finally taking them out to experience a real English breakfast. Unfortunately, the conversation did not end there. Not only were they coming across the pond, but my sister, my cousin, and my grandparents were coming as well.

What I’m Looking for in a guy

What I’m Looking for in a guy

I hinted recently that I met a guy, but this post isn’t going to be about him. I thought I’d reserve this post for something more in-depth. A place where I could work out my feelings. Forgive me if you were expecting the juicy details already, but I need to determine where my heart is.

I also need to see this list in front of me and figure out if my expectations are just a little too high. Maybe you can help me with that. Any comments are welcome. I’m not shy when it comes to criticism- I work in the fashion industry.

Am I too Busy for God?

Am I too Busy for God?

I’ve recently found myself a bit busy. With work and my social life, I feel like I’m on-the-go 24 hours a day, and it’s made me wonder. I know that God, in most cases at least, doesn’t try to compete for our attention. He’s given us free will, and he isn’t going to come hounding us at the door to come back to him when we feel all-to focused on the things in our lives that exhaust us and make us become obsessed.

I’ve been wondering lately if I’ve been pulling away. I don’t want to, and it’s taken me a few to realise it’s actually happening and what is causing it. Now that my wondering has turned into acceptance, I’ve been asking questions and looking for answers on how to solve this problem. I think I’ve come up with a few.

Being Single in London

Being Single in London

Lately, I’ve heard a lot of my single friends talking about how upset they are that they haven’t met ‘the one,’ settled down, and gotten married yet. This baffles me to no end. Each one of them is fabulous, beautiful, and clever, and yet they act like their life won’t begin until they meet him (or her- I have guy friends too.) That’s simply not true, and yet they let it ruin their confidence and self-esteem while at the same time ruining their chances of happiness while they’re still single.

I know many of you out there feel the same, so listen up. Being single is not a crime, nor is it a punishment. You don’t have to stay in and be miserable on Saturday nights or feel ashamed when you’re seated at the ‘single table’ at your cousin’s wedding. Here are a few things to remember while you’re waiting for the one to arrive.
