Today was one of those momentous crossroads where the path for the rest of life can be determined. As I have said before in a previous blog, I wasn’t confident at all and just hoped that I could scrape the three B’s needed for Brunel. I thought that I’d be able to find out if my application was successful at midnight. But, my friend told me I’d have to wait until 8 in the morning to log onto UCAS. Understandably, I found it difficult to sleep but as soon as I did, I was immediately woken by a noise from my phone. An e-mail. At quarter to 8. From Brunel.

As soon as I read ‘We are delighted to confirm that you have been accepted onto your chosen course at Brunel University, a huge smile ran across my face and I punched the air in delight. I soon woke the house up and told them the news. I was so ecstatic about getting my Uni place that I was now relaxed and not too bothered what grades I got.
I did eventually head into school and pick up the magic envelope which read Media- A Philosophy & Ethics- B and the dreaded History- A??? That was a shock. All summer, I was hoping to simply get my three B’s but to get two A’s and one of those in History was unexpected to say the least. But, it just made the day even better as I had overcome another hurdle; History had caused me immense pain and heartache in the past year but it was worth it.
Bye for now!
