Now we know who’s Joe Popular on this website – look at all the people flocking! I sense affection bordering on adoration (that vibe’s probably mine, hogging all the others) – well done Anala! All eyes on you.

Hi Anala. Firstly just wanted to tell you that I didn’t do as well as I hoped on my undergraduate degree and for a while I really beat myself up about it. But now I think I did pretty damn well considering I had a lot of personal problems at the time and part of me wanted to drop out. Also, it hasn’t hindered me at all, I finish my MA at the end of this year (another miracle) and I’ve got potentially a very promising career ahead of me. As I’m sure you will do too. Also, I encourage you to enjoy this time, act like a student whilst you still can. When you’re working you will miss simple things like being able to go to the pub on the afternoon or waking up at 11am 🙂 I’m also really happy that you’ve found someone, I’m sure in time you will find that you have things in common other than depression. Sarah

It is strange, for someone to make you so happy when you felt like it wasn’t possible anymore. Aaah it’s the best feeling there is. That happened to me last summer, and we’ll have been together for a year in 11 days. It’s so so so nice to have someone who knows how you feel and have felt and who cares about you, and for you to be able to be that to them as well. Really happy for you =)

Oh god… exams over… I know… just not thinking of results and wotnot… Yes I’m thinking positive, been networking quite a bit, may have a new job (unpaid) but I’d get to meet so many people where I could propel myself forward so fingers crossed. I felt like I’d been single for so long – first I hated it – then I enjoyed it and embraced it (a bit too much) – then I got a bit sick of it – then it was a balance – then blaaaah. I mean I guess I was, although I wasn’t really actively looking anymore. It was a pretty slow process – it just kind of fell into place. How do I know it feels right? I guess for me that I feel very content around him, very peaceful, and extremely happy but not in my crazy mood swing kind of way but just a warm feeling. Just being in his presence is enough, THAT SOUNDS SOOO CHEESY, haha but its true. When I’m around him I feel it’s alrite to be me, and that’s ok. Did that make any sense? How are your exams going? love and love

I’m picking up good vibrations, she’s giving me excitations….some tune 😀 Anala! Lots of good stuff by the sounds of things, definitely appreciation for the special mention too. You can put exams behind you now and go and enjoy what’s going on right now in your life….I personally can not wait for those words “you may now leave” after my next exam….straight to pub and bring on two weeks of going out, friends, sport, sun and doing very little during the day. I always find with the end of something and a new start it is a mix of sadness and excitement….and sometimes you’ve got to deal with the sadness before the realisation of a new chapter and excitement at that really sets in. I’d believe your psychiatrist! No matter how your exams went, there’s more to a person than just their academic ability, and exams only test certain skills anyway. As much as I encourage the single life, I do remember quite well what it’s like to feel the way you do at the moment and it’s pretty incredible, that sort of bond. Just enjoy it 🙂 Were you even looking for someone? I’m just curious how you knew it was right to be with them, as it’s something I’m going to have to face at some point and while I trust myself that I’ll know when the time is right, I’m still interested!
