I got started blogging in April because of 4 things:
Friendships, geekiness, loving learning, and perspective. I wrote about it here.
Over the last 7 months I’ve struggled to hold onto the latter. But that’s consuming jobs for you.
However, the friendships bit has meant so much to me. So much. My friends, new and old, have been awesome. You’ve listened, supported, questioned, inspired. You’ve made me cry, and made me howl with laughter.
I read that Guardian article back in February or March, about the five regrets of the dying. I’ve thought about it ever since.
One of the regrets was “I wish I’d stayed in touch with my friends“. So far I give myself a D minus for the other four regrets, but I’m definitely happy about the friends one. I am ever so soppy about how much I love my friends.
I’m really rubbish at hugging, I forget birthdays, I don’t ring up every week. But I want you all to know that you enrich my life. And I hope I bring the odd bit of happiness to yours. (Despite the lame hugs and lack of birthday cards).
