Viewers of Forrest Gump may not consider him to be the most intelligent ever created but he sure does have some wise words to utter throughout the film. I was speaking with my pal Claire tonight and we were talking about how it is a funny old life. You really do not know where the winding road of life will lead you. Even just recently, life has taken some funny turns and I feel that I am a much better person for turning. One example is Aberdeen. Until two weeks ago (roughly) I thought I was moving to Glasgow in October. I was making plans. My pals were helping me organise a flat, New Years, my new life. Then my boss called me aside and swung me a curve ball. He offered me a store in Aberdeen, in mid September. I took the offer. And now I am a tenant in Aberdeen, sharing a flat with my best friends boyfriend who I met for the first time in a non-social setting yesterday. Thankfully, we get on fabulously well and I am very much looking forward to our new Aberdonian adventure!
