PHENOMENAL US - CHALLENGE 17

BOHO
#phenomenalus #phenomenaluschallenge #phenomenalusboho

WHAT'S THE RUSH?


Are you a city dweller and like the hustle and bustle of city life? Or maybe you like the peace and quiet of the suburbs and take things easy? These days we are in a hurry all the time, we chase our dreams, passions, careers... We often bustle in and out to eat breakfast with friends in a trendy cafe, to go jogging, to have a city break somewhere in Europe, to do shopping, to take a selfie and post it on Instagram, etc. Probably the last activity takes more of our time than we would like and expect. I do my best not to act in haste and make hasty decisions. Rush makes a poor adviser as they say. However, I have a confession to make - I do sometimes follow the crowd temped by a fad. I am comforted by the thought that I am old enough to get a grasp of reality and slow down, switch off the phone (or rather mute it), shut the laptop and stay offline. But then... a football match is about to start! Sorry, I must dash...
