We All Have The Same Secrets.

I've been an avid follower of PostSecret for a long time - so much so that Sunday Secrets are often the highlight of my day. Sometimes it amazes me that people on the other side of the world have the same secrets that I do. One of my all-time favourite postcards was the one that said:

'If I could go back in time and tell the 13-year-old me that you don't have to make out with boys to get them to like you, then I would.
But I can't.
So instead I just pretend that its fun.
...it isn't.'

I could have written that. I've thought it enough times! I've had people ask me why I don't buy into the whole university culture of going to a club just to get laid - truth is I was doing that seven years ago, and I've grown out of it now. Any guy who wants to take me home after spending a couple of hours with me in a noisy, crowded club, after drinking god knows how much alcohol - well, he isn't for me. I just wish I'd known that when I was thirteen!

Some of my favourites from PostSecret this week:

How reassuring to know that there are people out there who feel the same way that I do. 

And, without a doubt, my favourite video....

Love to you all
