- it is 3 am and I am awake even though I got up at 6 and walked 15km in the sun, I should be wiped out.
- I just had a long conversation with my brother who I’ve barely spoken to since 2007. He loves his job and assumes this must be true of everyone, it never crossed his mind that there could be any other state of affairs.
- I am shocked at the things that came out of my mouth. I said that instead of doing what I actually do I should be heading up an NGO or teaching at a university in Angola.
This scares me. I didn’t know I had any special interest in Angola, I don’t want to go back to working for someone else, I don’t speak Portuguese and I don’t think I can afford to take that kind of drop in income even if I rent out my London flat,
