perfect understanding

"Is it possible, finally, for one human being to achieve perfect understanding of another? We can invest enormous time and energy in serious efforts to know another person, but in the end, how close are we able to come to that person’s essence? We convince ourselves that we know the other person well, but do we really know anything important about anyone?"
— Haruki Murakami (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle)

Hey Laura, just wanted to say I LOVE your blog its so positive! Anyway, a bit of an out of the blue question but are you studying to be a writer? Or do you aspire to be a journalist? I was just interested because you have such a lovely writting style. I'm in a bit of a career pickle, still can't decide what I want to do with my life, isnt that always the way haha.

Anyway, keep blogging!

Hi Ash!

Thank you so much! I am studying a double degree in Law and Arts, and my Arts majors are French and English. I love my degree, but I am thinking of switching my Arts concentration to Communications next year :)

Enjoy Eat Pray Love! You will love it.

Thank you again for your lovely comment xx
