Finn in the UK - EU Referendum

Since moving to England, this country has quickly become my home. As someone who never felt a sense of belonging - that is what I found when moving here. I have found a stability here like I have never had before... Today was the first time that I felt like an outsider in this country. The first day since I moved here where I felt like "one of the others" rather than "one of us." I have never before even thought about the term 'immigrant' being applied to myself or anyone I know in a negative context, but today it was made very clear that is how we are viewed.

Newly Found Reading #1

This weekend I decided to finally take some much needed R&R time. I've been pushing myself for weeks in regards to going far beyond my capacity when it comes to social interaction. So I decided to lock my door and stay in bed for the majority of the past 48 hours. And no introvert-haven is complete without some new reading.

Progression // Growing Up Veevley #2

I'm someone who constantly needs to feel as though I am moving forward. I need to know that I am not stuck in 'standstill' or 'doing nothing'. I need to know that I am doing something that is going to take me somewhere. I sit and come up with lists upon lists of things I need to do in order to achieve the goals I have for myself by the time I am thirty. I rarely stop. My brain is constantly on, trying to figure out how I can progress further.
