As time goes by, you live more

It’s been too long. I can make up excuses. I won’t. I’ve just spent the last 10 minutes reading back what I wrote back in January. It is now July. I always knew this was going to happen, it’s very me to start something then shift priorities. This is important to me, and I should make the time (plus i enjoy writing- believe it or not.)

In the last few days I have decided to write a book- well no more of a memoir. I have had an extremely eventful last 6 months, and if I were to have an out of body experience and look at my life- i would say wow. Have I learned anything new…as always.

From my previous entries I stick with what I say about friendship, but sometimes you do things (and know they are not good for you) but still do them anyway- maybe it’s the thrill. It wasn’t until one person pointed it out to me, that as soon as i didn’t want something, I wanted it more. I know this happens too often in life (eg going on a diet) but how do you stop that- I have the answers…Just don’t do it!!! So i’ve learnt- and wow so glad I stopped! (thanks)

I have met some incredibly interesting people in the last 6 months. Characters i never thought existed and ones that I’m still trying to work out if they are real of fictional! Will keep you updated if I figure it out. The rate i’m going…i’ll never find out!

With the girls back at home supporting my memoir, I will continue to make my field notes every day building up only true and real notes of the adventures and experiences that I come across. Choosing only the best parts to share in this blog.

So for now you should know i’m thinking in colour, explanations will come at a later date.

I’m still in love, in fact more than I was 6 months ago.

Until the next time…




Where have all the good men gone?

Please stop reading here, if you are easily offended. This post is a very personal post, and you may not agree with what i have to say (especially if you’re male, but if you are and disagree with what i have to say…then please tell me)

So in the last month I have had some interesting experiences with a few males, I have come to a few conclusions about the male specie.

My first thought is that women have evolved…we’ve become very independent, intelligent and we know what we want (whether it be casual or serious). We’re no longer the stereotypical women, who is easily pleased with just dinner, for a date. We want more we want men to be creative, think outside of the box. I think because we have evolved faster…men haven’t caught up yet…seriously. We have lowered our expectations for men, but as soon as they start talking and telling us stuff (that we want to hear!) woooommppphhh the expectation bar raises. We want more. We want to be adored. I have always said honesty is the one thing i want from a man, but i think im going to change that to respect first- then honesty, because i don’t think a man can be completely honest…not in the initial dating period. This is where men and women differ. We are able to be honest straight up- men…i’m not so sure unless it’s to get you into bed!

My second experience that got me thinking, was recently in a club. I personally would never go up to a guy i liked…NEVER. I believe if a guy wants you…he will pick up the balls and go and talk to you…regardless whether your with your friends. So, guys you always get brownie points if you can pick up the courage to come over and speak to a girl… it’s not easy (a lot of rejection at stake!) BUT once you succeed at that point… don’t blow it.

Experience from Friday night

1. GUY asks me to dance (ok this is slightly weird because i was already dancing…but ok, your cute…and you’ve managed to come over to me when i’m with my friends…bonus points)

2. GUY: “you have beautiful eyes.” ok this is a compliment… very nice…but very standard! I have nice eyes. I never know how to come back to that… (maybe it’s just me!) But this for me is like a warming up tool- give the girl a compliment (one that i hear a lot…but realistically its a bit lame…)

*so i kiss this guy- not sure why, i think it was because we were dancing awkwardly and i thought it was something to do- my mistake!*

3. GUY: yes he actually said this… “I think my lips like yours” WOW terrible line… also extremely cheesy.. what the hell?

then to finish off the night..

4. GUY: “Want to get out of here?” NO NO NO- i made up some lame answer and left.

Now this sounds very much like i’m looking for a serious commitment…so not just going back to his- as i’m sure it would be great…but even  if it was going to be something casual…be a little more respectful…you haven’t spoken to me? You know nothing…and to be honest im not that attracted to you.

So what do women want…

respect, honesty and for you to be a man. By that I mean, make decisions be powerful, be masculine…but at the same time be respectful to your girl. She wants to  know you like her…

So guys, if your reading this and disagree with my “women have evolved faster than men” theory…and terrible chat up line- that you think are going to work…please feel free to comment…also women if you have any thoughts please feel free to share!!!

Something to leave you with….

Holding out for a hero?

That’s all for now,

Ode to the world of music

It’s been a while… so many lesson’s learnt in this past few days/weeks or however long it has been.

As I’m writing this i’m sat in an espresso bar, watching the world go by with a good friend. It’s amazing to sit in one place, and let the world go on around you…watch the weather go from blue sky…to grey…to rain (which makes me thankful i bought my brolly) 

Main lesson that I’ve learnt…trust the ones close to you. They know you better than yourself, and they are an outside perspective…which is always a more realistic, non cloudy version of  what’s going on in your life.

This week has been a long but short week im sure you know what that is…but i’ve spent a lot of time to listen to music. It’s bizarre that music can have such an impact on your life…the songs that you chose to listen to..usually reflect something…right?

I’m standing in front of you

The war is over…i’m not fighting you any more

You can’t deliver- so you turn it around

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

Ps I forgive you.

Love FS  xoxo

Trust is hard to get… Easy to lose! (or is it?)

This week… Wow it’s been a crazy one! With the arrival of the third amigo, a few midweek parties, the arrival of a new baby brayolit, girls Shabbat gone wild, and then lazy Sunday! All this, in your average week of TA. Although it has been fun… There have been a few bumps in the road this week… but u learn from them.
1. Trust is easy to get (well from me, because I will most likely believe everything u say, until I realise its not true… Very stupid I realise… now) but if you lose it… Who knows whether you will get it back?!
2. Never leave without saying how u feel.
3. Always invite more… Then you will never be rushed/underestimate food… Although I love it… Not sure about the hour panic :s
4. Always be true to yourself and never do anything that doesn’t feel right.

One thing I’m really trying to get my head around, whilst living in TA is to be blunt- say it how it is… Ask how it is. It’s hard to do, because of my British politeness but if you want to get around here… You have to be blunt and straight to the point… So this week… I will try it out!
Will keep you posted, but thats all for now!

Hello 2012!

So the first week of the new year is nearly over….Do you think it’s true that you can tell how a year is going to be, by how you start it off? Nahhhh! If I was going to use last year as an example, my year definitely could not have been predicted!

So this year has started off well, with the arrival of a good friend making the flat less empty, being with the girls and working in a place that makes me very happy!

Your life is your life. It’s simple. You make what you can of it, you change the things you don’t like, and you live each day one by one, not because it could be your last, but because why not? Why not enjoy every day that you get?

I’ve had a lot of things that have tested my happiness…a lot of them last year (and the year before that) but sometimes it has to be bad before it goes good… you just ride it out!

I wish there was more to say, but right now…i’m very happy….

Here’s to 2012 being one of the greatest years of my life!

More soon,

FS xoxo

Don’t let the bad overrule the good

This will be the last post of 2011, so enjoy 🙂

So what’s new this week… what have i learnt? An interesting little story actually. I once knew a person, who i was quite fond of, but annoyed the hell out of me. Why, i hear you ask? Because this person treated me as though I would affect/hurt their life in similar ways to others that they had come across in the past (i hope your following me so far…) This annoyed me, because i know I’m different (not in a big-headed way, but i am confident i know how to treat people ie, do to those as you would want done to you) But earlier this week, i found myself doing exactly the same thing! Treating others based on past experiences! How crazy, how can you judge a person or a situation, without giving it a go, or giving them a leg to stand on?

So my advice to myself and others… give it a go, you can’t let one bad experience ruin the rest of your life! If you don’t give people or experiences the chance, you might just miss out on doing something incredible. If all doesn’t work out the way you want it to, well you learn from what happened and you move on… it’s only going to make life more interesting 😛

So that’s it for now! Enjoy what’s left of 2011…Go out and enjoy life, and do only the things that make you happy!

Until the next year,

Going a little deeper…

So, something today got me thinking of something, that i dont understand…. wow that sounds very vague doesn’t it! I don’t understand why people say one thing and do another, with no explanation of why? It bothers me! Surely people would only want to know the truth, no matter how much it hurts, if it’s going to hurt (surely this is the worst case scenario)! At least, you can deal with it, and know about it, and move on.

Do to others, as you would want done to you. It’s simple. If everyone lived by this, surely the world would be better. Don’t bullsh*t. Be True.If you’re true to yourself then others around you…well it doesn’t matter.

I was once told by someone, that some of the things i say are very naive and a bit airy fair, but i stick by it….

More later,

Family, friends and friends family!

Ok so we know I’m in love (I’m happy to tell the whole world) but at a time full of festivities it does make you stop and think about loved ones. Being away from your family and friends that have known you for years can be so difficult. But, it’s the chance to make new friends, and meet new people. Although I have no family here ( and I do miss my own family a lot) I’m very grateful that I can choose the people I can call family now. The people that you know will be there for you, in exactly the same way! The quotation, “friends are the family you get to pick” (or something on those lines!)

So for all my new and original family and friends, I would like to wish you all a happy chanukah and may the rest of your year be full of everlasting light and happiness!

Love to you all

Fly away home:)

Life’s good, when your in love

4 words ever girl wants to be able to say….I love this city! It’s crazy because when someone says they’re in love with something…it’s bizarre. To be in love with a city? How is this even possible. Well let me tell you it is, especially when you come from a place that’s full of old, quite miserable people. Here, everyone is happy, lives life to the fullest, and always takes the opportunities when they are given to you!

So for now, i’m in love….something i didn’t think i could say for a long time (although that story for another time)

Until the next time…
