And even though that means I have some pretty great things to look forward to it also means that I’m leaving behind a pretty good life and some pretty good friends. And that’s the reason I’ve been sporadically crying for weeks a little bit upsetting. So instead I’m going to try to look on the bright side. I’m graduating. There will be a celebration. There will be a party. And that means there will be gifts.

    Four weeks. And it's nearly over. Wow. I have to say this has been an amazing experience. Like I said at the start, I've never been a huge coffee drinker.
