Hello again Becky,

You are writing this as you listen to a newly rediscovered band called fun. A bunch of your friends are out in your lounge room playing games. You aren’t sitting alone because no one wants to play with you. You played bunches of games tonight and you ate a delicious dinner. You are alone because you have to be up early for the steady, well-paying job you managed to score that’s going to make the next few years of uni a lot more bearable.

Life is good. Please remember that. When you start griping about the ins and outs of sharehouse life, remember that these people love you. That there were always people around willing to have a chat, be silly, and play infinite board games with you. Because there will come a time when you are living in your own place, like you always wanted, and you will miss these days. Savour these times as they happen.

At the moment you are frustrated with the uni part of your life. You are currently going through the process of swapping to your third uni since 2014. Remember that this is because you may have found a way to graduate a few years earlier. It also might mean that you won’t have as much trouble finding classes you need. Once this is done, you should be done until you graduate from your Masters, a few years from now.

You also happen to be trending toward this habit of getting bored with the familiar. I’m hoping you have started to find excitement in these things by now. Just because something is familiar, doesn’t make it boring. Find ways to make your life exciting. Even if it’s just doing one new thing a week. Or a month, since uni makes things hard.

I hope you have made a life for yourself that you are happy with. Because that’s what you are trying to accomplish at the moment.

Most importantly, I hope you’re happy.

Love,

You.

P.S. Please promise me that you’ll throw a massive party for your 42nd birthday. 42 is the meaning of life after all.

About Bec Graham

Bec Graham, 24, was born on the wrong continent. Everything from her burns-like-paper skin tone to her inability to cope with the slightest hint of a hot day suggests she should have been born under the gloomy skies and mild sun of the UK. She hopes writing will get her to her rightful home one day. Failing that, she scans the skies for a spinning blue police box, hoping to catch a lift back to the motherland.
