    I don't think I learned much this day. WG and I were to go to a concert after Uni, and my head was buzzing with wonder. I liked her well enough, but could I be brave enough to ask her out? Would I get an opportunity? We had plenty of classes but I didn't give them as much...

    Mar 4 1992

    My thinking had started to change. Back then I considered every female I met a romantic prospect until proven otherwise(!) - the young male brain is sooo selective - but I started taking a lot more notice of WG. I found myself checking her out while walking between classes...

    Where was she? I looked out for the red haired Chinese girl all day, but didn't see her. I can't remember what happened that day, but our paths didn't cross. I think later she told me that the program didn't look very interesting and she'd done something else - or maybe that's...

    Feb 27/28 1992

    These two days merged into one. The 27th was the day of the all-night 'O' week party, which of course finished on the 28th! I don't think I saw WG that day. I arrived at the party and met up with a couple of guys I'd met in my course. We started wandering around, checking it...

    I woke up feeling determined, a little nervous. The morning went swiftly by and we finished classes mid-afternoon. By then I had a plan. WG and I travelled down together towards my tram stop and her station. I got her off the tram a stop too early, but she didn't say anything...

    There have been so many significant meetings that need to be celebrated, but there is one meeting that was a brief encounter; however the ripple of that moment has stretched out to be 20 years of memories, filled with two lives that have never really parted despite the...

    Feb 26 1992

    On this day, we had a field trip. I found her in the crowd outside the bus and followed her on, sitting next to her. We made pleasant conversation out to our destination, but I didn't want to be pushy with my new-found friend. Didn't want to seem like some sort of 'hanger' (I...

    It was my first day at University. I'd had a few years working while I figured out what to do after leaving school, and was quite apprehensive about what it might all be like. We'd had a morning of orientation sessions and tours, and what seemed like a relatively boring few...

    The call the night before had broken any ice that might have existed after my efforts with 'J'. I caught up with WG during the morning and was lucky enough to sit next to her through a class or two. Then the most amazing thing happened - I still don't quite understand how. We...

    'J' hadn't called me all weekend and I had a bit of a feeling about what that meant. Still I was hopefull. I tried to sit next to WG all day during lectures so I could find out a bit more about her but didn't have much luck - and when I was successful it wasn't really a good...
