As much as I needed a break this Christmas, having too long to relax really is no good for me. There is only so much 'quality' me time I can cope with before I end up becoming deflated, negative and in need of a purpose. Unfortunately, I can feel myself getting to this stage and I don't return to University until the weekend, so I decided to take trip to Manchester, to see one of my best friends from University, which was most definitely needed.

As usual, I took the train to Manchester to meet her and we spent the day shopping, eating and we watched 'Delivery man' at the cinema. I don't know what it is about her, but I feel so comfortable in her company, that food isn't an issue. I don't compare, I don't feel forced and I don't feel at all guilty. And this is what I love about her - her ability to make me feel safe. It is very rare that I can find people like her in the world, and for that I am so grateful that I met her on my first day of Uni.

I left feeling much, much more positive and not really wanting to leave at all.

It sounds like you had the most wonderful day Samantha, there are very few people who come into our lives with the ability to make us feel that way. Keep hold of her! I get to feeling the same way too if I've got too much time doing nothing, in the lead up to Christmas I had to try my hardest to keep busy because I kept feeling down (partly to do with having no purpose, and partly to do with missing my boyfriend!) xxx
