Recently I decided to make the difficult decision to quit my boring but secure job to pursue my dreams. I had been very unhappy for quite a while and finally I decided that enough was enough. I applied for university back in January because I wanted a drastic change in my life. It wasn’t an easy decision to make but it was for the best. I need to do something where my mind is active as my job was so monotonous and tiring.
Anyway, I had quite a long time to wait for uni as the academic year commences in September so I then decided back in April to travel to my favourite city in the world- Barcelona. I have been there quite a few times and never get bored of it. I wanted to come for as long as possible before I had to go back to London to start studying so now I’m here, I probably won’t return until September. I have made quite a few friends and I really am thrilled that I made the decision for myself to better my quality of life over financial security. Yes, Im scared. But what happens when I’m 50 years old and I look back on my life and wonder what could have been? The time is now to start acting like an adult and make some drastic decisions to help shape my future.
Back to my Barcelona adventure, Ive been here for 9 days already and it literally only feels like 2. Time really does fly when you’re having fun. The heat here is very different to that of the UK. If its 30 degrees in London it feels like 30 degrees. If it’s the same temperature here it feels more like 35 degrees. You know that feeling when you open the oven door too quickly and the heat rushes into your face? That’s pretty much how I feel every time I leave my apartment. But anyway I can’t complain as I’d rather be too hot than too cold.
Every time I come back to this city, I get to know it a little more each time and it never bores me. I really do think at some point in the future I will attempt to move here permanently. But who knows what the future holds?
