I was really quite sad when I said goodbye to my mother as she got her train and I wandered over to the platform to get mine. I miss my mother so much, and being with her just reinforced how much better it is to be with her in person. Talking on the phone just isn't the same. She gets me, in a way that nobody else does. A part of me would love to be able to move back to Cardiff so I could be so much nearer her, but I know that wouldn't make me fully happy.
University has meant that people I care about are all over the place and I know that no matter where I live, I'll always wish that I lived slightly closer to somebody else. If I moved back to Cardiff, I'd miss Dan, and I'd be further from my girl friends. If I moved back to Brighton I'd be closer to my girl friends, but further from my parents than I am now. There's absolutely no win/win situation, and that makes me really sad. Why can't I have all the people I love nearby?
