So much beauty out there

Mid-life crisis

Filed under: All,Dear Diary — Josh @ 6:33 pm

This has manifested itself in two important ways.

A) I have grown a beard (not unusual) and intend to keep it (unusual). It’s obviously attracting lots of comment, which I can only ascribe to jealousy.

B) More dramatically, I’ve given notice in at work, and am also going to be moving house at the end of April. Then I’m going to stick all my stuff in storage, and head off around Europe, until my money runs out – I reckon I should be able to get 2-3 months out of it, though I could really do with the Pound climbing a bit against the Euro. Trying to keep the plan as flexible as possible, but definitely starting in Spain and visiting Barcelona, Granada, Madrid, then going to Portugal, then maybe back via Bilbao, across to Italy for Milan, Rome and Florence then up to Vienna, Prague, Bratislava to Berlin and Copenhagen, then across to Belgium. Then back to the UK for Lower Woodstock (on the 11th July, official) plus a wedding or town and then see where I am. Will apply for jobs while I’m away, pretty much at random so could end up back in Cardiff or almost anywhere else in the UK.

It’s all very exciting.

    Unless I live to be over 90, I’m in the mid-period of my life and thus entitled to a crisis.

  3. Can I just skip this semester of school and come with?

    I’m going to try very very very hard to come in July. I basically won’t know until like 2 weeks before hand.

  4. Of course you can, Keri. I’m sure pharmacy school will understand.

    Just as I’ll understand if you can’t make it in July.
