16 little things

Some of  the little things I appreciate in life:
  • A person's sleepy voice
  • When I think back over a week and realise I've done lots of exercise
  • Putting on PJs after a long day
  • The patter of rain on the roof when you're all snug up in bed
  • Sliding across the floor in socks
  • Free shipping
  • When you talk to an old friend and it's like nothing has changed
  • Finding the most flavour-coated chip in the bag
  • Watching a movie/reading a book and noticing things you didn't realise before
  • Warm water on cold hands
  • Getting into a bed with fresh sheets
  • Perfectly toasted bread
  • Finding out someone has the same interests as you
  • The smooth surface of a new jar of spread
  • When you make a reference to something and someone gets it
  • When I get an email saying someone has commented on a blog post

Gossip Girl

So today I finally finished Gossip Girl. All 6 seasons done. It's funny because I always looked at the show with disdain (maybe because everyone was so into it and I wasn't allowed to watch it) and thought it looked like a stupid, cheesy soap opera. But once I started watching it this year, I got addicted. Well and truly. I can't really pinpoint what exactly it is about the show that I love so much. I don't particularly like any of the characters, and the storyline isn't all that amazing. I did, however, fall in love with the lives of the characters, so I guess that's it. Their clothes, their social calendar, the constant drama. I guess in a sense I was living vicariously through them, as it's so far from my own life. And in that sense it was escapism for me.

The final episode. My goodness. It was perfect.

A bit sad now that it's all over.

Adventure time!

So I'm officially going! Thailand come at me! My friend and I have booked our flights and are off out of here on the 23rd of December! To say I'm really excited is the understatement of the century. Just some of the things I want to do in Thailand include:

  • Ride an elephant
  • Go on a hilltribe trek
  • Go on a river cruise
  • Visit some fantastic temples
  • Go to the Full Moon New Years party on Ko Phangan
  • Stay at least one night in a 5 star hotel (accomodation is crazy cheap)
  • Visit the amazing markets
  • Eat amazing Thai food
  • Drink amazing cocktails on an amazing beach
