Hope is perhaps my defence against the future.
Running made me feel like I could never be caught, maybe if I ran fast enough I'd be able to escape the fear of the past and the present.
Sometimes a song can set the tone for your day, it can get you out of a slump, put you in one or may relate to your life in some way.
Nothing about this gap year is "usual". The usual would be putting up the beautiful sceneries of where I am going, the success stories of things I have achieved and all the love from everywhere just pouring in. No, it's not "usual" because I feel a mess, everything is all over the place, my Instagram feed is barren and I can barely concentrate on a point on the wall when my Yoga instructor asks me to.
