Someday I'll fly away


I have, yet again, been consumed with wanderlust.
It is a curse. 
An addiction
My greatest desire.

I have been getting quite settled in Aberdeen.
Everyone has been so great, so welcoming, so kind, so fun.
There have been a few hiccups along the way,
and that is to be expected.
but all of a sudden that itch has come upon me.
The itch to roam

Those of you how suffer from bouts of wanderlust will understand exactly what I mean
Will understand how it feels to want to live each day at a time by adventure at a time

I am going to America in a few weeks.
I will see so many things that I can't wait for...

Temple Square in Salt Lake City

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir


Zion National Park


I am hoping that helps scratch the itch.
There is quite a possibility that it will worsen it.


A huge part of me is telling me that i need to settle.
I need to start saving for a flat
I need to find a man to cuddle in to on a cold winters night
I need to have a garden to grow vegetables
I need a fixed abode

A slightly lesser part, though increasingly louder part
Is telling me to go see those things I have always wanted to see
Life is short
Take the road less travelled
Travel the world
Learn its stories
Learn its lessons
Maybe my future is to be found in the nomadic life

I love Scotland

It has such a huge place in my heart. 

I have some amazing friends here.
The move to Aberdeen really highlighted the strength of those friendships.
Unfortunately it also highlighted the fragility of others.
I don't doubt that those who care for me will make an effort to see me 
wherever the wanderlust would take me.
And I would do the same in return

I am at my happiest when on an adventure.
Perhaps, it is time I start looking for a new one.
If  I am brave enough to start all over again that is....

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order) 1)Read the BBC top 100 books 2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights) 3)Go zorbing 4)Learn a new language 5)Visit the Sistine Chapel 6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder) 7)Visit Tiffani in Utah 8)Parachute Jump with Agata 9)Raise money for charity 10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.) 11)Sell something

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh. I think you should know. I love it truly. Every day I feel more settled. Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper. I really am content. So content that I sing. Poorly. I should apologise for that. I really like my new job. Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information. Then it digests and I feel capable again. It is nice to use my brain again. It does help that I have wonderful colleagues. They make it easy to love the job. I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks. Then I finish my training. After that... who knows? Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat. It bores me terribly but the boy loves it, so I pretend. I pretend quite well. I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal. I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way. I wish I could meet them soober than October. Hurry up October! I should mention that we're popping over in October. Pints? Anyone? Lastly, I received an amazing gift at the we

January

I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
