As a law student, you never feel like you’re doing enough.

“At any given point you can release your greatest self. Don’t let anyone hold you back. Don’t let anyone dilute you. Don’t be peer pressured into being less than you are. People willing to dilute themselves for the sake of others is one of the great tragedies of our time. Stop letting others define and set the pace for your life. Get out there and be your best. Do your best. Live your best. Make every day count and you’ll see how exponentially more exciting, thrilling, successful, happy and full your life will be.”
― Steve Maraboli
“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
I’ve always wanted to study abroad for the experience. And I figured, my parents didn’t throw in that kind of money for me just to come back unchanged. I’ve become just a little more fearless in life, to new experiences and meeting new people. I want to make the most of my year here in UK because it only comes once.
So sue me for wanting to experience life, grow and learn.
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things out of us.
2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
Psalms 103:14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.
This is for you, June. ♥
Well, it’s been ages since I’ve done some proper blogging. Been so caught up settling in uni. Anyways, I’ve promised my best friend June that I’ll put up pictures of my room here in Reading. I didn’t want to post them on Facebook for the world to see. So here they are!
This is where I study and do most of my
unproductive work. It’s pretty neat because the window is just right there and the sun shines in (when we’re lucky to get the sun, that is!). I’m quite happy with the view I got too. I get to stare at the beauty of Reading when I wake up. And it’s quite pretty now in autumn. It tends to get cold at night though because the cold seeps in through the window.
The door straight ahead at the far end is the door to the kitchen.
As you would have noticed Mackinder Halls are themed orange.
So there you have it! My humble accommodation here in Reading. My home for the coming 9 months.
