Not sure what it really is, or why, but there is always an air of expectation when in London. I half expect somebody to sit on the chair opposite me and make an exciting offer. I can see how people get lonely in the city and learn to enjoy their own company. No wonder everyone is so grumpy.

Still love it though

Saw this on and it made me sad. I wonder if she ever did anything wrong.

I saw a man riding a penny farthing on the way back from uni today. It sort of made Southampton vaguely interesting for about 5 seconds.

The most interesting thing that I have recently learnt

Because the people who were meant to read it probably didn't, here it is for you:

The BBC documentary ‘Human Planet’ taught me about the lifestyle of Bajou people who live on houseboats in the coral seas around the Philippines and Borneo, rarely setting foot on land and only to get rice, fuel or to mend their boats when they do. The ocean is such a fundamental aspect of their lives that they even measure the passage of time by the rhythm of the water rather than minutes and hours. The people have no nationality, no fixed abode and little money which reminds us that perhaps the materialistic approach of many in the West is excessive and it is the simple things in life which should take priority. My love for learning about how others live made this highly interesting. An amazing part of the lifestyle that stood out was the adaptations such as the fact that some of the children spent so much time underwater that their eyes had adjusted to focus better there. Even more outstanding was a man who was able to hold his breath for up to five minutes when he went hunting for fish, swimming 20m to reach the sea floor and then walking across it as if it were land. The pressure deep under water, with no equipment save a pair of swimming goggles, caused his lung volume to decrease by two thirds and his heart beat reduced to 30bpm yet the hunter was calm and focused on obtaining dinner for himself and his family. I found this mesmerising because the man’s adaptability, endeavour and determination to focus his mind made me realise that if there are people in the world that can put so much effort into doing something as biologically and physically challenging as that, then I should not give up on achieving simpler and more feasible tasks.

An end has a start....but the starts are lacking

Why is it when you have a million important things to do, you find a million other things that you would rather be doing? And why do sparks of inspiration come at awkward times like three in the morning?
