Finished my first year at university with a solid 2:1 (shame this year counts for nothing in the grand scale of my degree), but it hasn’t been easy. Not so much the work, but the personal side of things. The hospital stay, the doctors appointments, the cocktail of tablets; it is a surprise I made it out the other side. On the plus side, teaching children is definitely my calling and I’ve loved every minute of school placements. Bring on next year and age and subject specialisms. Now for a summer full of the one who has held my hand through it all before he relocates two hours away in September for his exciting new job.

The first three nights we spent together, I couldn’t sleep. I wasn’t used to your breathing, your feet on my legs, your weight in the bed. In truth, I still sleep better when I’m alone. But now I allow that sleep isn’t always the most important thing."
—David Levithan, ‘The Lover’s Dictionary’

I’m studying a degree in teaching, not creative writing, so why the fuck am I having to write a children’s story?

I’ve made myself what can only be called a nest in my bed and I’m huddled up under three blankets with a hot water bottle drinking hot chocolate because my room is so cold. I’m still ill after a week so I’m feeling sorry for myself and all I want is someone to come and spoon me please.

"The best part of a relationship is getting to call the person, or lay down next to them, and tell them all the crazy things that happened to you all day long. In the end that’s what it’s about. It’s not about sex, it’s not about the money they give you, it’s not about how good looking they are, it’s about them listening to you talk for hours and hours and hours, about stupid shit that doesn’t matter."

I move into my uni house share on Tuesday and apparently I got lucky because my room was originally the lounge and it is huge! Party in Ruth’s new room!

I can’t wait to start decorating it and make it feel more like home.
