My amazing housemate. He's about to start 6 weeks of radiotherapy, 5 days a week. Instead of being depressed about it, he's turning it into an adventure by organising trips and various other fun activities during the 6 weeks.
On top of that, he tells me to not worry about rent when my redundancy happens.
These types of people are exceptionally rare and I wish the world was full of them.

Top man, you must be pretty chuffed, that stuff is brain-frying hard. Now all he has to do is leave the country so he can find decent work.
Yes I am chuffed, he has worked really hard for it.
You are dead right about him going abroad. He is going to UBC in Vancouver to start a PHD in September. He wants to work all over the world, there is little chance of him getting any work in this country, unless he becomes a lecturer. There is very little funding for science in the UK and what there is mostly comes from the EU (which obviously is going to stop soon).
My youngest says the same, there is nothing for him in the UK once he graduates.
