Tuesday marked the end of what I like to call my "pity month": a month spent in Olbia, my home town, my no man's land as I waited to move from one life to the next. I'm a 23-year-old Italian who chose to study and work in London. Now, nearly five years later, I have just touched down in Sydney to start again. I have officially become a double expat.

In today's fast-paced job market, you hardly have time to stop and think. Whether I was at work waiting on a client to dial in to a weekly call, or just out for pleasure waiting for a friend to arrive, the image I had in my head was the same.

Shehnaz Khan

Monday it was Sydney; yesterday it was Peshawar, and tomorrow, is could be anyone or anywhere else. Pessimism doesn't do anyone any favours when it comes to perception of the future, but in this case, I feel as if it's not entirely pessimistic as it's the truth, it's unfortunately the world we now live in. Is there anywhere that's actually safe from the relentless grip of terror?

Terrorism as the Psychiatric First Aid and 'Quick Fix' for Mental Illness

Anne Speckhard | Posted 14.02.2015 | UK

Monis, like Tamerlan Tsarnaev before him--who attacked in Boston with his homemade bombs--were both asylum seekers legitimately granted asylum from parts of the world where torture, war, killing and mistreatment are commonplace. Each over a period of years of unsuccesfully integrating into their new country fell prey to the lure of terrorist ideologies and there are likely others like them.

It's the media that makes the fuss, not the Royals themselves. So I hope the world will give them a break. They're not lauding it over anybody, nor would you ever hear a Cambridge say, as some celebrities have been known to, "Do you know who I am?" And if their loveliness is due to being "boring", really? Then give me some more "boring" to counter our high-drama, high-octane lives.
