Thieves Broke Into My House and Stole...

When a lot of people think of Africa, I'm going to guess that they think about crime. I never did. Growing up in South Africa meant that I had an opportunity to see the country differently...up until today. At around noon this afternoon, I heard my generally very loud-speaking Greek granny whispering on the phone with my mom, back in South Africa- highly unusual occurrence. I knew something had happened... I just didn't know what.

How I'm Preparing to Move to London at 18 (Without My Parents)

 One month.

That's all the time between this moment here and the moment that I touch down at London's Heathrow Airport and add another city onto the already longer-than-average list of cities that I call home. I started the whole university application process about a year ago. It's unbelievable to see all those unknowns reveal themselves and lose the 'un' part. It's rather satisfying, too. And scary, but I already spoke about that here.

Moving to the UK: The Emotional Side

I don't have dreams often. Hardly ever really. Now and again though I wake up knowing I just experienced a fantastically odd adventure in my head. 10 minutes later though, I usually don't remember any of it. A few nights ago, that statement would not have been true. It was a nightmare that I still remember- almost one week on and almost 100%.
