"The degree of civilisation in a society is revealed by entering its prisons."
-Fyodor Dostoyevsky
That's exactly how I feel about relationships.

Of all the subjects I could have loved, I love European Law. A subject I wasn't even interested in studying.

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2, Verse 47
"Work. Sleep. Family. Friends. Fitness. Pick three. And remember, you can choose a different three every day. As long as it balances out in the long run, you're ok. So don't put pressure on yourself to do all five of those things well every single day." - Randi Zuckerberg

Our French socialist law professor says that he doesn't like poor people. What he means is that he doesn't like people to be poor. It makes it difficult to live as a community. He believes in better living conditions for prisoners. "What's to make people fear going to jail?" I think. But I have to admit that I agree with him. Growing up in conditions which allow access to information, exposure and opportunities to learn and to work, I cannot imagine why anyone would behave offensively.
We just have to look around our middle and upper middle class neighbourhoods to know that this is true.

The nightmares have improved slightly.
Now when I wake up with my heart racing, the only person that's going to die is me.

So far, all we have in our imaginary house is a disputed four post bed and an old-fashioned easy chair with a side table for his coffee, ash tray and newspaper.

Walked into that one, didn't you?

Today my boyfriend and I were talking about relationships and about how it's sometimes possible to come across a person who captivates you.
I ask him if he had met someone like that.
He looks at me and says that he had, actually.
Obviously needing to know who this person is, I ask in all seriousness who she is.

"It's her birthday today." he replies.

I'm using the dating site 'Tinder' to practice speaking French.
I explain to my potential 'beaux' that that's all that I'm interested in.
I shall shortly be writing a novel titled 'How to lose a guy in 10 minutes'.

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

― Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living
