My greatest success

As I sit down in the Jubilee Library to write this post, WordPress prompts me: “What is your favourite cartoon?” Dude, what does this have to do with my greatest success?

But, to be fair, what I am going to write about has a little to do with cartoons. Because living in Brighton can feel a bit cartoonish sometimes. And my greatest success in life is getting to live in Brighton.

See photos attached – all taken on rather cloudy or otherwise grim days, but even then the city doesn’t fail to entertain with all its colours!

Here is where my draft apparently saved but didn’t actually save, so I had to re-write the post. Some original emotions may have gotten lost… I apologise for that on behalf of the Jubilee Library guest wifi.

So, see, Brighton is great. It really is. I have no regrets about moving to Brighton, it was in fact one of my favourite things I ever did. I have regrets about going to the uni here, but it’s too little, too late! My grade is out – I got a 69.57 average, which is just 0.43 below distinction, but WHO CARES, RIGHT?! It’s not like 0.43 of a point destroyed my self-esteem, not at all. But no, my self esteem isn’t that fragile, I like to think – I’m not 11 anymore – but it would’ve felt a hell of a lot better to have gotten distinction. But what can a girl do. Not much.

I’m turning 25 in less than four days and I’ve read somewhere that your brain stops developing when you’re 25. So I guess the peak of my intellectual and artistic activity may have passed – probably years ago – but we’ll see as the future comes. And the future comes every day. How nice of it.

Now I’m gonna go back to watching Girlboss, now that I’ve finished season three of Emily in Paris. They’re nice background noises, perfect to add a bit of colour to the dull greyness of my neighbourhood, now that I’m back in my family home for Christmas. Maybe I’ll post some more while I’m home – stay tuned, as always. And remember to leave a comment!
