At whatever point I met you, in whatever setting (educational or otherwise) thank you so much for being part of my story. I'm a big believer in everything happening for a reason, there are lots of lessons to learn; I met you because I had something to learn from you, something to lead me to my next decision.
To those I have left behind,
While I miss you greatly, I don't hesitate to say I am having the best time! Whether I met you in uni halls, on a job paying for my degree, or at any point since qualifying, our chapter was an important one - otherwise I wouldn't be in the position I'm in today! I hope your story is going well too!
To those I have started with,
Thank you so much for being so welcoming! I am still in an element of disbelief when I think about where I have ended up. Work hard, play hard comes to mind; it's the best mix of productive and hilarious. You make this life the most fun. It has real purpose without losing any realism.
To the ones down the corridor,
I admire your patience as I stand in your doorway, on a daily basis, spouting some rubbish. Thank you for taking the time to hear me out and help with so many queries. Finding a group like you isn't easy. I reckon you could single handedly solve the 'Recruitment Crisis'.
To my team,
Truly, I think what we have done this year is very special. The autonomy we have afforded each other has been the cause of our greatest successes, I think we make a great team. I am really looking forward to the new academic year to build on what we have created so far.
To those I am yet to meet,
Success in this life is largely down to outlook - change your outlook to change your life. It's very difficult, but you never know what could happen until you give it a go! Make calculated risks, good choices. I cannot wait to meet you!
