Thursday was my last day at my freelance job and I feel like the person in the picture. Jumping for joy and ready to take on new challenges. I’m looking forward to taking the time to find a new contract, getting a lot of studying done and getting off the hectic London treadmill for a bit and into the slower life of being a mother, wife and student. I won’t just have my head in the books the entire time – I’m looking forward to getting stuck into my mindfulness practice and trying a few new exercise classes, including Barry’s Bootcamp.
