  3. hey, i didn't realize we were born in the same year. i think that's how life is. ups and downs, high and low.
    but, it's worth the journey isn't it?

  7. I'm so much older then you.

    I love that sometimes you'll say something and I have no idea what the hell you're talking about, I'm just such the American. I however loved your quick, summed up life story.

  8. I love how much I learnt about you in just 250 words - brilliant! I'm impressed that you gave up Uni, I don't think I'd have been able to do that in the same situation - so brave. xx

  10. Yay for Balham! Borough of Wandsworth is where it's at.
    And it's nice to see people that have come through anxiety and been happy the other side, I've been struggling with that at the moment but it's coming along nicely.
