A Sign Of Things To Come... Hopefully!

Yesterday I caught up with a girl who I used to work with, someone who has been a very good friend of mine for a couple of years now. When we used to work together we would always talk about our lives and university. Working where I work only a handful of people are actually university students so it was always nice to connect with someone who's going through what you are going through and will go through.

Yesterday was her graduation day, and she was kind enough to invite me to the celebration after the ceremony.
The weather was awful, it was cold and looked like it would rain at any given moment, but it held off for the most part, only a slight drizzle, and yet the day was amazing. A great atmosphere. When I saw her she was still dressed up in her gown and hat and I genuinely was so happy for her and so proud of her. I had seen her stressing over her exams and I was so happy 6 months ago when she first got her degree classification. She's extremely clever and worked really hard and it paid off - she got a first class degree, which is something I aspire to! Fingers crossed!

She really is an inspiration to me, after all if she has been able to do it, and her exams were all at the end of the year opposed to split like mine, then it must be possible! I just know that this time next year, when my graduation rolls round, I don't want to regret not working hard now, so if I don't blog, forgive me. Trust that I'll be working hard so I can share fond memories of my day with you all!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar
