Past meets the present

I got the nicest mailing list newsletter today from Beth today, she had my page as a featured link in it, which is the first time that has happened. She gave us all an award as well, which I thought I would put in this entry since I don’t have an awards page, and I wanted to put it somewhere. I’m not an award freak, but it was a nice surprise in my inbox today.

Lisa and Sally gave a talk today in Interpersonal Communication on eating disorders. It was really good, and what made me happy was that they never once said that being thin was a characteristic of being anorexic. I guess I’m just a bit defensive about the topic now.

I saw Bec today, and it turns out that she and Sarah Forth, a girl that I went to Swot camp with, went to school together last year. Funny, my closest friend at uni, and my closest friend from camp knew each other - I guess it really is a small world after all. I saw Sarah on campus all day today, which I normally never do - but anyway, it was good to see her again. She’s the nicest girl. : )

Not having Russell at uni was...well, his absense made more of an impact on me than his presence did. Ever guy I saw, I thought was Russell at first - from the back, half the guys were wearing the same sort of hats as Russ did (so much for being an individual, hey Russ!). Oh well, I’m not desperately pining away for him or anything, I’ll see him on the weekend. It’s just...kinda weird. When I was first starting uni, it was a comfort to know that Russell and Katrina would be there with me. And of my comfort zones is gone. But in it’s place, I have all new friends. But I guess it’s still kinda hard to get used to.
