#weekendcoffeeshare: Brexit for Breakfast


I’m drinking a Masala chai from the Curiosity Shop. My week has been wildly busy and my Saturday is full as well. But now I am drinking my tea and contemplating existence. There’s a lot to contemplate. It’s a beautiful sunny day here, and only 5°C!

I’m going to be a bit personal, so if we were having coffee today, I would tell you how anxious I am about the Brexit. I want to live in Britain, but their leaving would make it exceptionally difficult to get a visa. I am wondering what arguments the British people are hearing, and how much of them feel threatened by the EU. I would also be questioning the fact that, though the EU was supposed to create opportunities for everyone living in its borders, it has just become an economic bloc, and a messy one at that.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am also waiting to hear back about my Master’s application. I have applied to Uppsala University to get my Master’s degree in Peace and Conflict Studies. I would be telling you about how I don’t feel qualified or clever enough, and that I’m worried I did the application wrong.

I’d also tell you I’m worried about Super Tuesday, next week, where Donald Trump will perhaps gain even more delegates. I would be wondering aloud how we got to this place. Is America so bad? Are people so jingoistic and ignorant? Americans who constantly say ‘no foreigners’ are quite blind and wilfully dumb: unless we are Native American, we are just as much foreign as the people arriving to our borders today.

This is a heavy chat I’m having today. I would have chocolate for you, to ease the conversation. I hope you are doing well. Until next week, then? – SDM

  1. I don’t like to talk about politics, religion and animal abuse. They seem to cause tempers to flare. I dread the coming Presidential election as I have heard it all every four year over my lifetime. I would lime to see a woman elected, she cannot do worse than the last few men.. I don’t know much the British situation. Good Luck with your Master application. I am for WORLD PEACE and hope occurs sometime in the future, probably not in my lifetime. First weneed to comprise in the home.


  2. That’s interesting you’re going for a masters in that field. I am looking into that myself. 🙂 And I can’t understand how people can take that man seriously. We must be the laughing stock of the world.

    Have a great and peaceful week!

  3. I read BBC news and of course there are a lot of articles about the possible Brexit. It does not sound like it would be good for Britain by any stretch of the imagination. There was an interesting article about Trump in the Rolling Stone Magazine. I read it online so you might want to look it up. Good luck with your Master’s application. I’m not sure if I could make it through many Swedish winters…,.


    • I used to subscribe to RS back when I was a student and it was cheap as chips. I will deffo check it out. I happen to love winter and cold, but the degree is almost 100% online and I’d only be spending a few weeks there. Thank you for the visit!
