Exams, I really and truly detest you.
Exams. University of Reading. Aggie. Hands-on learning. Memorise-regurgitate-obliviate learning. Just can't.

(Reasons for the picture: 1) Taking a picture reminded me to breathe. 2) Sometimes I need proof of what I'm getting myself through. 3) If my point a while ago was setting out to document my life more thoroughly with pictures, not all pictures can be happy. 4) It reminds me to be compassionate with myself. Trust me, I need the reminder. 5) I really needed a reason to stop doing what I was doing for a minute, but couldn't open Sandry's Book to read due to blurring eyes.)

Okay. Calm now. Diving back down again.

Today is hard.

*Hugs back.*

Thanks. I think that's the instinct that the picture inspires in me too - which makes sense, really, and is what I would offer anyone else...but usually, without something like this, I wouldn't offer it to myself. So having this here sort of reminds me to step back, take a look, and step back in with more compassionate eyes - to give myself a hug and a pat on the back and my own shoulder.

Does that make any sense? Or am I just being crazy again?

You are strong, think about everything you've accomplished and went through in your life. Some people would have lost it if they went through what you did with your hip, but here you are at university in England. I also take it that you passed your last semester that you were stressed about, which also is incredible because it sounded like you had a shitload of work to do in a short period of time. Even if you don't feel strong right now, the person deep down inside you is. ♥

Also that's probably now my fav quote ever, thank you for shaaarinnnggg

Thank you for this. It's taken forever for me to thank you because those same exams kept me from corresponding properly, but it really meant the world to me, so thank you. ♥
