The End of Year 2: Part 4 – Cowboys & Rollercoasters

So much has happened since the end of my last exam that I feel the only way to do it justice is go over it bit by bit. The saga is on-going until it ends so who knows how many parts this will have…

After one of the best spontaneous days of the year on Monday at Wimbledon, Tuesday was almost the opposite. Anne had been planning her 20th Birthday party and looking forward to it for longer than I care to remember. She had planned a fancy dress party at our house in the evening which was going to be a good laugh, but first there was a small matter of a costume.

Josh, Jess and I had come up with the idea of going as Cowboys. A trip to the party shop later and the transformation could commence…


It was a great party, lots of friends, but most importantly all the house was there. I can’t remember the last time we all went to a party together, probably because it was last year at the earliest, and it was great fun. It’s a shame that only in the shadow of saying goodbye could this happen, but it just shows how busy we all were all year. With Josh on Christian Union, Anne and Will on ChemSoc and me at MAD TV, it became impossible to do things together. But that made the few times we all spent together even more special. I’m really going to miss them all, it’s been such a brilliant year!


Talking about the shadow of goodbye, the following day we’d all arranged to go to Thorpe Park together for one last full day together and to celebrate Anne and Josh’s birthday. The day had been planned months ago and we’d all been really looking forward to a last day of chill before having the clean the house and say goodbye.


Unfortunately the day didn’t go as planned. In the morning Josh and his friend Chris Nash, who was also coming to Thorpe Park, missed the train we were all getting on. This meant Josh, Chris and Jess spent all day without us and we didn’t get the last day together we’d all been looking forward to. I don’t like to think that this ruined the day in any way, but it certainly dominated conversations. That evening I had a decision to make…

The next two posts in this series are going to be accommodation posts. A lot has changed in the last 7 days regarding housing, not least of which is moving out of my current house and into a new abode.
