Instagram whore. (And some news).


 - I can't stop eating.
- I'm in Brighton
- I'm feeling happy

The previous may or may not be related.

About two weeks ago I got the long awaited email saying that I've been offered a place at Brighton university. Excellent news, but slightly tainted by the fact that their stipulation was for me to get an A grade in my Philosophy A Level. With about a month to go, this was a daunting prospect.

I went to see my tutor and she told me that I should just go for it - I'd need to retake the AS from last year (in which I was awarded a D) as well as doing the A2 this summer. This is a crazy ask but I am psyched up to do it. Since that meeting I've been studying like nothing I've ever experienced before (probably about the same amount you do normally), writing to-do lists each night AND organising my life in the form of timetables. I'm like a new woman.

On Friday I had a conversation with the head of English at Brighton university (the leader of the course I'm looking to start) about my situation, how much I want to come and the possibility of my application being reassessed. She was lovely, and the long and short of it is that my offer now depends on my getting a B rather than a A. Score.

It's still going to be a whole lot of hard work, but it just means that the odds of me being able to attend my chosen course in September have greatly increased.

I'm chuffed, and am going to go and do some more reading...
