– It all started with drinks at work on a Friday afternoon
– End of exams (for me) meant celebration time!
– I organised drinks at the local pub with a few people from work
– I wore my new blazer (tux cut), jeans, black ankle boots & an old top that has never let me down
– Work put on free drinks, pizza & garlic bread for the first hour & a half. So nice of them!
– As J went to the bathrooms, B & I took this opportunity to take photos of ourselves on her phone
– I woke up to these photos sent to me HA!
– Saturday, I went for Lunch with Anna from Lifes Shiny Pretty Things where we chatted for two & a half hours about life, blogging, travel, relationships & just about everything in between. Such a beautiful & inspiring young lady!
– Saturday night was spent in the bath, reading a book
– Sunday (today) we had freakishly windy weather….as you can tell from my reflection in the car window.
– Sunday afternoon was spent at 50ml, one of my favourite cafes located in Leederville
– Late Sunday afternoon was spent saying goodbye to a girlfriend going to Japan (so jealous!)
– Rest of the afternoon was spent reading the paper
– Blogging, emailing & reading from bed as I watched the rain pour down
Now that university is over for the semester and I have 5 weeks break, I’ve been able to go out for lunches & drinks with my friends and it has made me come to a very sad realisation. I have been so unavailable to all of my friends the past few months which has made many not call me because they know how busy I’ve been so they didn’t want to bother me. I’ve been so self absorbed this semester with work and uni, I’ve only just learnt all the things going on with my friends. As much as it’s important to finish this degree as quickly as possible so I can become a qualified valuer, coming out of this degree with no friends is not worth it. I’m thankful for this weekend & this break that I’ve been able to open my eyes & realise how much I’ve let some friendships slide. Things as simple as a message or a quick hey tell conversation can do wonders as I’ve learnt.
Let this be a lesson to all- friends are more important than anything else in life. Yes, there’s that famous old saying that good friends will always be around, no matter how long you don’t speak for but a phone call or a visit every so often lets them know you care & you think about them.
