A year in moments #15 – the ‘what have I got myself into, am-I-going-to-die?’ moment

I was told I was to accompany Sandeepan’s husband later that day to some accommodation outside of Shimla. It seemed like an instruction rather than a request. I was in Northern India and had connected with a family who ran an NGO which helped with the education and empowerment of women and remote villages. They … Continue reading A year in moments #15 – the ‘what have I got myself into, am-I-going-to-die?’ moment

A year in people #75 – Nate

I’m sure he finds me mildly annoying. Every new starter is given a tongue-in-cheek-but-is-it-really Nate … Continue reading A year in people #75 – Nate

A year in people #70 – my first boyfriend

I was 15 and had gone to a friend of a friend's (let's call her A) house for the weekend. They had a swimming pool and it was summer so HELL YES. A's Dad was a plumber, and had a young lad working for him (who also happened to live just down the road) who … Continue reading A year in people #70 – my first boyfriend
