A note from Joelle...
So ladies and gents, after ELEVEN long years of saying that I want to become a geologist when I grow up, this dream is becoming a reality.
I cannot believe I have stuck to my goals for so long and am so very close to achieving this! I have to thank God most of all obviously, because He was really in control and not me.
I got into my firm choice of uni yesterday after passing my Music, Extended Project (on Gold Mining) Politics and Geography A Levels and could not be happier. I am currently in the adjustment stage and could possibly move to another university, but we'll see later this month.
Even though I took the wrong A Level subjects and completely failed the first year, I managed to shake myself and work really hard to get to where I am now. I did lose friends along the way as I became less sociable, but I wouldn't change a single thing.
I don't have time to celebrate as I need to sort out jobs, accommodation, more exams and stuff, but for now, I'm really really relived and very happy, that my dreams are finally becoming a reality.
Also, it's great that I've been living away from home for the last three months, in a uni-style environment. It has really shaped me and I know I can budget and be really mature (kind of!).
I can't wait to be a fresher and start my course in September! Meeting so many people from different countries and walks of life is going to be wonderful. I think I will need to update you all on my celebrations when I get back to London next week and of course, my new outfits that I will be buying for the new term. I already have 3 haul posts coming up so stay tuned!! :)
Is anyone else going to be a fresher or just going back to university in September? :)
So I leave you with this quote:
"Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish."
