Fifth area is in.
OH MY GOSH SO CLOSE. No one cheered immediately when the results were read out. I like to think that, like me, they were restating the numbers in their heads to work out which one was higher. ^_^
Yeah I had to wait to see who was cheering before I could react…
No won in Inverclyde by LESS than a hundred votes. Jesus Christ that was close!
So close…yet so far…
The Western Isles were SO CLOSE! Less than 1,000 votes in it!
This is not looking good so far…
It’s okay only something like 60,000 votes are in so far. That’s not significant in the grand scheme of things.
I know but I have class at 10am and there’s no way I can sleep when it’s like this!
Shetland has now come out as a ‘No’…let’s hope the bigger counties bring this back!
Outside he asked me what film we were going to watch and then we spoke about it for two minutes before we fell into silence. I spent about five minutes working up the courage to speak to him again and asked if he knew anyone in the class. He didn’t.
When we went inside I sat at my usual bit then noticed he was at the other side of the room but he caught my eye and came over to sit beside me. After class we spoke about our plans and ended up spending the whole afternoon/evening today. We went to a bar and had a deep fried Mars bar (really) and started drinking. We spoke about so much and it turns out he is also twenty-one, went to Uni beforehand but dropped out and doesn’t know anyone in Dundee really. I also found out that he has anxiety too and I felt so happy to find someone that I had so much in common with. Funnily enough he invited me to a club tomorrow night that I was planning to go to (he takes mdma too!) and we went to the gaming society and ate free pizza and played Mario Kart.
It was super fucking cute and I had not felt so relaxed in a while. I really hope I didn’t end up talking too much and scaring him away because we got on so well and I could really do with a friend.
So yeah…tonight Heather is happy.

On the eve of Scotland’s independence referendum, Yes supporters rallied in George Square to listen to speakers and live music. But it was at the other side of the square, in front of Glasgow’s City Chambers, where the real interest of the evening lay for me: a group of our Catalan brothers and sisters arranged rows of coloured candles to show the Catalan and Scottish flags side by side. When the arrangement was fully lit, the gathered crowd cheered and began to chant “Sí! sí! sí! Yes! Yes! Yes!” A piper stepped into the middle of the square and began to play. It was without doubt one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I was tearful, and it was so powerful an experience that I left shortly afterwards, unable to take any more.
What a privilege. What a special time to be alive in this country.

having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. it’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive, and it’s wanting friends while hating socializing. it’s like running a marathon with the willpower of a corpse because you want to get to the end but you also want to sleep and evaporate into the soil and become compost for snails and flowers because then at least you’re useful
