Thank You Notes

It's official guys, I'm going to be graduating in July with a 2:1 degree in Sociology! So I thought that now would be the perfect time to write a little list of thank yous to all the people that have helped me along the way, because I couldn't have done it on my own! 

Dear Paul, thank you for everything. I'm sure when we started going out you never anticipated having to put up with the kind of stress fests you've seen from me in the past few months, and I have thrown a lot at you I think, but you have been amazing.

Dear Mum, thank you for always believing in me even when I don't believe in myself. I can't tell you how much your little encouragements along the way meant!

Dear Dad, thank you for ferrying me to and from uni to pick up library books and hand in assignments and everything else, and thank you for telling me that I made you proud, it means the world to me.

Dear Rowan, thank you for always keeping me company, I've really enjoyed having you around and I think it's really nice that we've been able to study together. Also, thank you for always making me laugh until I cry and for listening to me ranting about anything and everything. You da best!

Dear Managers, thanks for letting me do the research for my dissertation at work. To Matt & Frans in particular, thank you for listening and helping me out when I was having a hard time and brought it into work with me.

Dear Alice, thank you for all your support. I know you always said I could do it and you were right, but I think having friends like you helps so much. I'm really glad I get to see you every week at the quiz!

Dear Seb & Kirsty, thank you for brightening dull days at work which has often made me very unhappy in the past few months. My favourite shifts have always been the ones where I get to work with you both!

Dear McFly (and other assorted bands, but especially these boys), thank you for your music, it always gets me through.

Dear Tesco, thanks for all the chocolate. I'm sorry that your profits might take a bit of a hit now I'm not needing to fuel any all-nighters!

Dear Yorkshire Tea, I love you and that's all there is to it.

Dear Comedy Central, thanks for the Friends marathons!

There are loads of other people, but these are the ones that stand out. Also, thank you to all the people who took part in my project - I can't name you because of confidentiality and everything, but I really appreciate it.

On to the next chapter!
