the english urge

In recent years (or rather, ever since i held an adequate understanding of the English language), I’ve harboured an undeniable desire to be English, to speak that delectable London accent, to go to boarding school, to moan often about the weather…

Just what is it about the English culture that is so attractive to me? I love its comfort foods: stews, sausages and mash, baked beans and endless varieties of cooked potatoes. I love the quaint country lanes, I love its literature, I love its slangs and its humour. I love its people.


Yeah, so this is just a big fluffy shout out to England. You’re brilliant!
