I am currently in my second year of college meaning that it’s finally time to move on with my life and fly the nest. After discovering that A Levels were most definitely not for me, and after a total meltdown the day we went back, I decided that I wanted to go to college instead.
I got perfectly all right results, not amazing not dreadful however I just knew I couldn’t go back. Changing over to a BTEC at college is the best thing that has ever happened to me, it’s opened so many more doors. I have currently been studying there for a year and a half and there would be no way in hell I would be applying for university right now if I never changed, who knows where I would be? Properly working full time in the cafe next door. Not exactly the most riveting lifestyle in the world ey?
The end of 2014 was filled with university applications, open days and interviews. But finally the stressful, panic attack filled months are finally over. I’VE RECEIVED TWO UNIVERSITY OFFERS!!!!! Me. The girl that was told she would fail all her GCSE’s. None of this would have been possible if I carried on with A Levels. I’ve come so far in a year, I know I made the right decision, despite my dad still thinking I should have stuck at A Levels. (Grrr.)
I am now faced with one of the biggest decisions I have ever had to make. Which offer do I take? Do I go further afield but go to the bigger and better university, conveniently closer to where my boyfriend’s attending, but where the course is not as amazing. Or do I go to the still amazing but not as amazing university closer to home with the much better course?
I’m a strong believer in the fact that everything happens for a reason, and therefore I’m sure whichever I chose, it will be perfect and I’m sure everything will work out the way it is meant to be in the end. However for now I’m stuck with this huge decision to make. I’ll just have to keep thinking for now.
Do you have any big decisions you need to make? Are you currently stressing about university applications? Just remember whatever you chose, will be the right one in the end.
