Another day spent with a friend means another refreshing reset to the outlook. This particular friend is someone I admire very much, she goes for what she wants and what she wants is rarely conventional. She has a love of science and maths and that means the jobs she pursues often involve passing on that love to children through workshops, summer schools and other means. She has the kind of life that I would like to work towards, her income is on a “bit of this, bit of that” kind of basis. I would like to have that kind of variety in my future. It is not an easy road, she works very hard but she always looks happy to me and I think it might be because she always follows her truth and does what feels right for her rather than what others think she should do.
I enjoy her company very much (although I usually talk too much about random things such as sign language etymology or this time, linguistics…) I think I could learn a lot from her attitude to life and apply it in my own way to mine.
