Living In The Present (#153)

It’s hard to believe it’s only been a week since I arrived in Europe but wow has so much happened. Every day has brought something new and exciting. I’m eternally grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait for what’s to come. It was really great being able to FaceTime with some of my friends tonight and reflect. I moved into my Essex apartment today, meaning I finally have a permanent place to stay for the first time at the same time I’ve been abroad. Travel is fun but also incredibly draining. Tomorrow’s sun will bring new life and new opportunities.

It’ll be a hell of a game whatever the result and I can’t wait to support them. Grateful for the games they’ve played and the joy they’ve brought me. One more boys, let’s go and bring home a 6th European title.
