Now just the graduation ceremony itself to look forward to... oh yeah, wait, I can't look forward to it because my Mum is still sulking because my Dad is coming, no-one cares enough to want to take me out for a celebratory lunch afterwards and all in all, as usual, the day will be over-shadowed by the petulance of others, no-one will be proud of me because they will all be too busy sulking and I'll end up going home (which, fortunately by then will be in a city 200 miles away) on my own to celebrate with a bottle of vodka. maybe wine, if I'm feeling flush.
Anyway, as I'm trying not to indulge my grumpy side in a rant about how much of an outcast I have been made to feel by both sides of my family this week (and yes I do realise that sentence in itself was a mini-rant), I shall instead write a list of all the things which I have to be happy about and to look forward to. This always cheers me up.
1) Going out with the girls to celebrate tomorrow night;
2) Buying a nice dress (despite not really being able to afford it) to wear out tomorrow night;
3) The local festival on Saturday afternoon;
4) The beautiful weather forecast for said event;
5) Going up to London to flat-hunt;
6) (Hopefully) finding a flat in London and arranging to move;
7) Finally having time to have a proper sort out and, I suppose, start packing;
8) Having time to read a non-educational book;
9) Having time to finish my knitting (yes, I know, I'm practically an old woman);
10) Moving to London!
11) Having my own flat and going shopping for lots of nice furniture;
12) Living near my best friend again;
13) Starting my new job and meeting new people;
14) Getting my own classroom;
15) Having lots of time over the summer to explore London;
16) Meeting up with some old friends over the summer;
17) Getting excited about the impending hen-do being organised for next year...
The list could go on, but that has definitely put me in a better mood. So bring on the summer, bring on the sun and bring on the fun times... I'm free!
