Things I've Learnt This Year (Just for you Andrew)

- Surfing is awesome.

- Breaking up is hard...but not as hard as finding out that as part of the separation agreement he gets pretty much all of your friends. No negotiation.

- May is not a good month. Bad things happen in May.

- Getting to the end of your degree is such a good feeling.

- Planning a holiday is ALMOST as much fun as actually going on it.

- How nice it is to find someone who loves you, on good days and bad, even when you're being unreasonable and who will laugh at your jokes (not cos they're funny, just cos you find them funny)

- That I REALLY hate people that come up to you and tell you that you should be smiling. Don't you think that if I felt like smiling I would be?!!!

"Getting to the end of your degree is such a good feeling." I totally agree

"How nice it is to find someone who loves you, on good days and bad, even when you're being unreasonable" I reckon :) :)

I've learnt to just be myself more, and don't be afraid to tell people what I think and believe

breaking up is hard and being the friend caught in the middle is hard too. there is always negotiation unless you chose not to use it

No negotiation isn't an option. Making them choose might be but I'm not stupid enough to do that. It is too hard for me to be friends with someone and then I see them in photos with their arms round his new girlfriend. I don't care about him replacing me so fast but I really do care when I see my friends doing it too. Maybe this isn't the right platform for me to say this stuff but I've pretended I'm fine for too long.

Your degree achievement is outstanding!
Breaking up really feels like being broken up!
Surfing must feel like flying, wish I could!

Is it any help that I was born in May 100 years ago at least???
