So, currently, being 23 is awesome. I’ve received some lovely gifts, including the scarf featured above, which is not only a wonderful shade of aubergine, but has cats on it with words like ‘mew’, ‘purr’, ‘meow’, ‘warm’…needless to say I am very happy indeed.
I also have got a huge amount of free food and wine as a perk of being in my old faculty on a new degree: I get the lunch party without the induction seminars. Which is very pleasant. I am now going to drink limoncello mojitos with my mother before going to the pub with my fellow fledgling-PhD friends, before we are crushed by the weighty inevitability of our theses.
If only my boything were here, it would be an especially wonderful day.
