For someone whose life has come to a bit of a standstill, I’ve got an awful lot going on at the moment.
I’m back from Reading, where I’d been busy graduating and Ascot-ing and I was very grateful for the break. Graduating wasn’t nearly as scary as I thought it might be, and I actually really enjoyed it – so much so that I felt a bit sad handing my robes and mortarboard back at the end of the day. I didn’t fall on stage, I didn’t cry and neither did my family, so all potential embarrassing crises were averted. Here’s a couple of the best photos I managed to get of the day!
Lovely stuff. So I’m a graduate now. All still a bit surreal, but I’m sure it’ll sink in at some point.
Now on to the harder part. I’ve refrained from talking about this here because I hate to cast any shadow on my usual happy self, and it in an odd way also seems a bit like an invasion of privacy, so I won’t say much. It’s as simple as this – my dad has cancer, and while I thought I’d been okay wrapping my head around the whole thing actually moving back in with my parents and brother has made everything seem so much more real. It’s hard.
Other than that, I’m just on a job hunt for a temporary solution to my lack of funds and spending my nights doing nothing in particular (except watch a lot of shitty gameshows, which I’m enjoying far too much. Pointless and Catchphrase are my current favourites.) It’s nice for the moment but I’m sure it’ll get tedious soon. I’m aware this post doesn’t really have a specific point to it, nor a proper structure, but that’s fine – we’re just having a bit of a catch up, right?
I could easily sit here all night listening to Ben Howard and feeling peaceful, but I should probably drag myself to bed. I’m keeping up the ‘post every other day’ schedule surprisingly well so far, for me. I’d be proud of myself, if I wasn’t essentially just wittering on.
Until next time,
