There's a light at the end of the tunnel

After the past few weeks of assignments hell, I finally have a (relatively) quiet weekend, so I only got to the lab today at 2.45pm.... I realise that I have been fairly quiet on the blogging front for the past couple of months unless talking about Busted or McFly. I think (gently prodded by Matt) that I should get back to talking about how things are going with my life.

Plenty has been going on with me at the moment, most of course involving late nights in the Boyd Orr. However all that stuff is boring and since everyone is under stress why should I complain? The fact is that I am happier now than I ever have been (and no this isn't because I have finally become the world's biggest geek and actually enjoy spending 90% of my life hacking together code... well it's not that entirely ;) ).

I went through a brief spell this week when I was really down on myself and believing that I couldn't do anything. I felt that I was letting everything slip away from me that I really cared about: Matt, my friends and my degree. What I realised with a little help from Matt was that things really aren't as bad as I think, so here is my list of reasons to be happy.

I am happy because for once I know what I want from my life and I can see me getting it.
I am happy because I know I can do my degree, even if my classmates don't argree with me.
I am happy because I am in love, with someone who loves me. ("The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return." Ewan McGregor, Moulin Rouge)
I am happy because I have friends who understand me, who are there for me when I need them.
I am happy because I always have the comic relief of Matt, even when he doesn't intend to be funny at all.

I have plenty more to be happy about, but in the interest of not boring everyone and getting on with my project work, I'll sign off for now with one more thing. Try to remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to be positive enough to see the first glimmer... here's to the Easter holidays...

    Comic relief even when I don't mean to be funny, eh? Hmph.

    Fair play, though.
