This week...

Apart from a trip into Brighton to see The Wanted live and my best friends 18th birthday, the past week has been pretty uneventful.
Watching the first generation of Skins UK for the 50th time, going to the gym and watching clips from this years aussie open online has more or less been my life for the past few days.
therefore, nothing decent to blog about.
So here's a video from The Wanted's date that I went too.

Let's Do This One Day

I'm currently reading the book "I heart New York" by Lindsey Kelk.
I'm barely half way through but I'm completely in love.
It's basically about (I'm going to try and do this without spoiling the entire story) a twenty something girl who's just broken up with her boyfriend and found out that him and all her friends are basically backstabbing liars. She's pretty messed up so she buys a plane ticket to next destination that speaks the English language -New York- and cuts off more or less all the contact she had for back home, so she can clear her head and sort herself out.
Within a week, her life's completely changed. New friends, new love interests and even a new job.
It's completely caught me though. to be able to just drop everything and go somewhere so far away seems like an absolute dream. Although it's something I'd do in heartbeat.
I know it sounds kind of unrealistic. Your luck would have to be so high as to receive all of that in week of being  somewhere you've never been before. But it's got me thinking that maybe that is all possible.
And if that's possible, then what could you do in a month? Or even a year?
My friend lent me this book. She'd told me I would love it. I don't think she realised that less than half way through I'd be dreaming of the day when of I pluck up the courage to drop everything and move away.
Maybe I'm reading a little too much into it. I don't know.
Read this book. Your dreams might feel like they're actually reachable for once.
