#FridayFive: Five Reasons I Can’t Wait to Leave Liverpool

Well those are words I never thought I’d say. And I don’t really mean them. Click-bait? Maybe a little. I know it’s going to kill me leaving Liverpool in a few months and I’m trying to gear myself up for the big moment. I’ve written quite a few posts about…

Making life-changing decisions are never easy. I always worry that I’m going to choose the wrong path, the wrong city, the wrong accommodation, the wrong job, all of it. I’m forever wishing I could time-travel to the future to see what decisions I should be making and especially to see…
