Still Learning

Over the last month I have learnt quite a lot about myself, particularly in the 30 Day Self Portrait Challenge, but sometimes life lessons come in smaller pieces. Mine surprised me in hindsight. I thought I would share them with you as I can imagine both are pretty common.

A Open Angry Letter To UKIP

To all those in UKIP, You make me angry. I have been studying most of today about something I assumed was hardly related, and yet the more I read the more angry I became because the smug nonsense from UKIP keeps coming over the TV, radio and through the news/media. I was already pretty pissed…
