Thank you to everyone who sent me tweets, texts, emails and comments yesterday, for all your crossed fingers and your prayers and just for simply caring. It means absolutely masses to me. Late last night, after a nice meal out with my family (pizza and chocolate pudding were inhaled), I got a phone call saying that I wasn't going to be offered a place at Brighton this year. Of course I was and am extremely upset, but I had somewhat resigned and prepared myself for the fact.
I will now need to decide what to do with this year. I certainly don't want it to be a waste and instead would like to make it a year that I look back on and say... "yeah, that wasn't so bad actually, I did alright for myself". I want to make good decisions, learn a lot, make some money, move physically and emotionally, and bring myself a little bit closer to my dream of Journalism.
For now though, I'm going to go on holiday. We're driving over night to Switzerland (and leaving in an hour and a half) to spend time with friends, eat cheese, drink wine, and swim in lakes. It's probably what I need.
Unfortunately the internet situation isn't looking too shiny. We were supposed to have WiFi installed but nay, the Swiss decided not to turn up. I'll blog as regularly as possible but please excuse the slight break as I'm probably bathing in wine.
ps. WELL DONE to everyone who did get into the University they wanted. I'm definitely, absolutely not bitter at all.
