The way laptops have evolved into basically a mini-cinema is amazing. However, the difference is quite big. At the cinema you have that sick feeling in your stomach, where you've just sneaked some food in, or got in to an R-rated when you're three years too young.

We all know she's had plastic surgery, wears wigs, and has spent a fortune on her looks, as she so often quotes 'it takes a lot of money to look this cheap!'... The next thing you'll know, there will be a degree course in how to build a brand the Dolly Parton way.

You turn your head away from the light streaming in through the gap in your curtains and lay there motionless as you attempt to recall last night's antics.
'Teachers in a 'drunken brawl' on school trip to Barcelona'. That was the headline that I returned to when emerging from a detox retreat (my partner chose not to tell me the 'news' until my 'quiet time' was over to avoid any disruption to my focus on mental and emotional peace!).
So you've just had the best year of your life. Literally the best. You've met some amazing people, had so many unique experiences and seen some incredible things... The trouble is, the whole world isn't that interested... Now you're back in your dull, non-life changing native country, it's time to learn how to fit back in.
