9 Life Lessons in 6 Minutes

This morning I received a video on WhatsApp that I found so inspiring that I have to share it with you. It’s not your typical life lessons speech of following your dreams, be happy, spend time with people you love etc. Instead Tim Minchin has a more sarcastic take on what life is about: “Don’t seek happiness. Happiness is like an orgasm. If you think about it too much, it goes away.” Tim Minchin No worries, there is much more to it. Listen to these 6 minutes, you won’t regret it 🙂

Somewhere between student debt, rent, and utilities it can be hard enough to afford groceries let alone take the time to go anywhere.

How would you describe your style? I…
