False hope?

Hey:) I have a LOT of explaining to do. It’s been a year since my last post so I’m sorry for that. A lot has happened, ups and downs and everything in between. I’m now on a mission to upload a post ideally weekly but more realistically, fortnightly or monthly. I will be continuing on with my story which will take up a few more posts to bring you up to the present day. From here on in, if by some miracle anyone is actually reading this, I would really appreciate some feedback and most importantly some suggestions for future blog posts. It is a dream that one day, I will be able to put a lot more effort into my blog and have my own personal website so please do keep sending me suggestions and tips, all is welcomed!

So, I left off last time where I’d just finished all of my university interviews to study mental health nursing.

Whilst Chris and I were in Norwich preparing for my final interview (which I didn’t actually manage to attend due to illness), I received a phone call from Robert Gordon university in Aberdeen. I had only gone and got a conditional offer!! I was overjoyed, I couldn’t believe that I had been able to secure a place if I could meet the criteria in my A levels that summer. I phoned my mum straight away and she couldn’t be have been happier as Aberdeen is where she did nurse training too many years ago. A few weeks after the end of all of my interviews, I logged onto UCAS and to my absolute amazement I had also received an offer from the university of Essex in Southend on Sea. There was a lot of celebrating on those days but it was to be very short lived.

Reality soon came back to bite me and it sunk in that I actually had to get good grades in my A Levels in order to go on to pursue my dream. I continued on struggling to attend college with my mental health declining more and more every day.

I will leave this here just so that it isn’t too long.

Keep shining:) x
