I know exactly how zombies feel

Have a look at this picture:

This is basically everything I’m taking to the UK. Apart from clothes. Which I haven’t sorted out yet.

What is it?


I’m gonna be completely honest.

Painfully honest, perhaps. I hate cooking. And feeding myself is a REAL pain in the arse.

Last time I went to my university of just for a fortnight. Because I booked too late, I had to stay in a hotel (instead of the University guest accommodation).

The hotel was in the middle of nowhere.

And although there was a supermarket 25 mins away…

… there was nowhere to PREPARE food.

I spent the whole week feeling so, SO hungry. All I could think about was food. Food, food FOOD.

Thanks to that two week… I know exactly how zombies feel.

So this time I’m going prepared.

I’m staying at a place with a small kitchen.

And I’m taking everything with me. One of those bags is just full of add-water rice. One for each day I’m there. The other bag is full of boil-in-the-bag curry, instant miso soup and other easy to prepare Japanese meals. Even if I don’t buy *anything* in the UK… there’s enough food there to last most of the month.

Because as long as I’m not hungry?

I really don’t care what I eat. And if it’s at least fairly healthy? Bonus.

The lesson here, of course, is simple…

… make things easy for yourself.

Same for travelling, same for English.

And to make things REALLY easy for you, I wrote up everything I know about Mastering the English language in a book − Master English FAST.
