LOST… Believe it or not, but yes, I was lost on Hayling yesterday. I always knew that my sense of direction had never been good, but being lost on this island is really pathetic!
What’s even more pitiful is that I had a map (and it’s not like I like blaming myself for everything, but this map was very simple, even a baby could have understood it!). I had checked everything on Sunday, I had drawn a “beautiful” map on a “beautiful” sheet of paper, but…
Hayling Island is not huge, it is the opposite of “huge”, most of people have never heard of it… It is so tiny, there is almost nothing here apart from the empty beaches, the few houses and the remaining shops! It is not a desert island, no, or at least not yet!
I’m not really gifted, I know, you can say that, I won’t blame you! Fortunately, I hadn’t planed to spend my six months in London :s !!! Can you imagine the disaster, the chaos it would have been? No actually, don’t try to imagine anything! That’s scary!!!!!
I really felt stupid! Have you ever been lost in such a small place? (Even if I doubt that there is one person more stupid, I will nevertheless simplify my feeling) So you probably know what I mean when I say “STUPID”. You truly feel like you’re the worst of all the idiots in the world!
With this, all I need to say now is “Make sure your map is really good (No I mean it, nothing’s better than a very good map. In short, don’t try to draw anything but don’t pretend to be a specialist of direction neither!) but above all, make sure you have your brain before going anywhere!”
That’s probably all for today, unless I have the strength to write something when I come back tonight… So keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉
PS : I found my way back 😉
