Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.
I graduated university today. I didn’t go to the ceremony because I hated my tutors and I hated my university life. It has been the single hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Today I went for a meal with the people I’ve met and became good friends with while I’ve been at university, I’ve celebrated them. That means more to me than you can imagine.
My dad was right, my dad is always right.
